MiP (14901) - Sønderborg, - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, 5.2%. Weak grainy aroma. Clear yellow colour. Small chalk white head. The flavour is grainy with some paper. The graininess gets unpleasant rather quickly.

sudomorph (1025) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
330ml can. Pours a crystal clear light gold with a thin, white head. Aroma has nice notes of traditional hops, grain, and slight sweet caramel. Taste is balanced. Mild hops, sweet grains, and a touch of bitterness at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a very slightly dry finish. Overall pretty macro but ok for what it is.

darbeer75 (316) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2016
Aroma: corny lager; not pleasant; Appearance; pale golden straw with invisible head; Taste: first micro second is lager but then disintegrates into sickeningly sweet finish; Palate: light bodied with thankfully short finish. Overall: never again.

Cimbasso (640) - - APR 13, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. A clear yellow gold with a white head. Quite heavily carbonated. Corn syrup sweetness with some grassy notes. Not really any bitterness or hop taste. Not bad for a hot-climate lager, but not great.

Looks like urine. No head. Tastes like a corona with sweet mushy corn added. Better than a lot of lagers, but so sweet. Not getting any hop action at all. Brought back from Jamaica. I’ve had worse.

hman43 (909) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2015
It pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is grassy hops, with little in the way of other flavors except some rice. It was light bodied and easy drinking, but not much deScription otherwise.

Desverger (6938) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Tesco Extra, Streatham Common, London, split at the parents, most down the drain (27/11/2015) (my first Trinidad & Tobago rate!) - pale clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma and taste is overt sweet with notes of corn and grainy malt, cardboard, some grassy weird hoppy notes, very watery, oh dear.

DeanF (2223) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
Minimal head and heavily carbonated urine yellow body. I can smell the stenchy rotten hops from here. Closer to the nose it’s all skunk cabbage. Flavour is sugary fake lager with hints of caramel candy. Dry finish. Kind of circling the drain for lagers.
