Nothing special here. Simple straw color and a subtle sweetness in the aroma. That same sweetness is present upon initial tasting but nothing spectacular.

Bottle shared at tasting. Clear gold pour. Aroma is grainy, some corn, pretty malty, not off. Taste is sweet, malty, easy drinking, no hop. Palate is light, a bit watery, low carbonation. Not as bad as expected, pretty standard pale lager, no major flaws.

mathieuc (1336) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a white rim that leaves no lacing. Nose is of hay and skunk, pretty much like you’d expect. Taste is of corn and light "real malt". Body was light and carbonation medium, pretty sure you can chug a lof of this on the beach. Overall it was just a standard pale lager, nothing exciting.

tom10101 (2828) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Thanks to Andrew for this one! Slightly hazy pale golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of corn and light sweetness with light skunky notes. Taste is slightly sweet with corn, skunk and undesirable mineral presence. Light body. Soft carbonation. Bland finish. At least it’s not too offensive.

christhoel (69) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
grass, skunky, mingy aroma pale, clear, minimal head, cat piss type appearance and to be honest it doesn’t have a taste light body, oily feel, flat, the only thing good about this is its wet and could prevent death on the hottest day if stranded in a hot place with no water

Grumbo (596) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Drunk bottled in Tobago, also locally brewed versions in Grenada and St. Kitts. No destinction between them. Pour a clear pale gold colour with an average white head. Aroma is grainy with notes of grass. Light bodied with a typical lager carbonation. It is what it is and does the job in Caribbean sunshine.

holy shit this is skunk. clear golden hue shines through the clear bottle. skunked nose. taste follows the skunk theme, moderate grain sweetness. light body but the skunk lingers. Trinidad and Tobago fuck your life forever.

Presentation: It was poured from a clear 11.16oz or 330ml bottle into a dimpled mug. The label lists the abv at 5.2%. Appearance: The body is a very light straw yellow color with very good clarity. From an aggressive pour down the center of the glass I got a tall fizzy white head. This light fizzy head fizzled out quickly leaving only a thin ring of bubbles at the edge of the glass. Smell: As soon as I opened this beer it hit me right away with bright floral and grassy hops that also bring a hit of skunk as well. Taste / Palate: There is not much going on here, as is normal for the style. Its a basic light bodied Lager with light rice cereal like malts and floral/grassy/greenhouse like hops. The palate is light, crisp and it finishes surprising clean.
