RERATE: Managed to pick up an unskunked sixer. Sweet, with a somewhat bitter finish. Not quite so watery as your typical North American swill and its lack of adjunct off-flavors is a plus.

I am still struggling over the loss of Reptile, and I have only this beer to blame for my sorrow. Never again will I drink a Heineken, there is just to much risk involved...revenge will someday be mine...

Welp, for a cheap ’import’ as it is deemed in certain places around here. It’s not the worst. It’s got a decent bitter flavor. I’d take it over a Corona, or a regular domestic. But I wouldn’t take it over a delicious sandwich. Thank you and goodnight.

I really don’t like the metallic taste that comes from this beer (and no, I’m not taking just a sample from a can). It’s decent and very drinkable, but not my favorite. A bit too thin and watery as well. Flavor is kind of distinctive, saving its otherwise bad impression on me.

I lived in the virgin islands for a summer and you’d be amazed how many places I went where this was the best beer they offered. How sad is that? This stuff is an average lager at best, that benefits from a good marketing department.

I wonder if it was just my sample, but I didn’t like this stuff at all. I’ll probably never buy it again. Slightly sour, with a bitter aftertaste.

Let go my Heinie. A pretty damn good import. Not skunky, rather smooth and quite a buy. But something does happen after more than one. I’d only drink one, then switch to another beer. Not too shabby though.

Over-rated, not entirely bad though. Kind of a hoppy skunky thing going on.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: A little metalic and disgusting aroma. The flavour is matalic and sligthly chemical. Not my kind of beer.
