KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a pale yellow with a large (2-3 finger) fizzy white head that diminished quickly and had poor lacing. The aroma was almost non-existent but did have a mild scent of a grain malt, a weak grassy hop and a moldy yeast with just a hint of caramel. The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty with a hint of caramel from the beginning to end and not much else. The flavor lasted a very short time with any aftertaste fading very quickly. Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with the texture being rather watery and having a fizzy carbonation. Overall a super light beer that did not have a lot of flavor.

travita (3845) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, straw golden in color, and a thin white head. The smell is straw, skunk, malt, ok. The taste is bland, water, malt, floral, egh.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Aroma is fruity and metallic and a little skunky, appearance is fizzy medium yellow. Slightly bitter and with metallic fruity sweetness. Crisp enough, pretty easy going, like many tropical beers distributed by Heineken.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a crystal clear classic golden with a quickly dissipating white head. Skunky nose with some corn sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth and wet with a mild microscrub from the carbonation. Skunky flavor. A bit watered down from a Corona. Some toffee noted along with some sweet corn.

One of the better beers found in the Bahamas. Pour is a light amber with no head. This beer is available everywhere in the Bahamas.

Very pale in in the glass. The nose is sharp and grainy. The beer is pale, grainy, a bit sharp and very watery. The aftertaste is grainy, slightly sharp and watery. Not really great... --> 4/10/3/3

nealblind (663) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Clear yellow pour white head. Aroma of malt, hops. Strong malt and hops flavor. Beer concentrate type of pale. Strong bitter finish. Probably the best macro you can find for hops lovers on the island.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2014
It’s got a slightly sweet aroma with that very English hop aroma (not sure what kind of hops are English, but they’re pretty distinctive, almost musty). It’s a gorgeous gold color. The flavor is that same musty hop/hay flavor, with a slightly sweet finish. This beer obviously isn’t going to blow away beer snobs, but as far as a good beach drink, you can’t do too much better.
