From historic notes, bottle, source not noted. Poured very pale gold with a whilte head. Malty aroma, with vague citrus notes. Fairly thin. Was ok.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 When in Jamaica, I find Real Rock a much better pick over the overdone Red Stripe. When in Rome...

355ml bottle - pretty sure biegaman gave me this one quite some time ago. Okay, it’s a bit old - but honestly would it likely matter? Slightly hazy gold with a fizzy diminishing white head (3-). Smells - meh; clover, sugar, weedy grass - not great, not ugly. Taste - jaysus, that’s not bad - too sweet, but I still get some crispness, honey and clover - just a bit of paper, not much alcohol at all - I just checked the bottle - best before 21 months ago! Well, it was in my fridge - but this is seriously not bad for a pale lager. Light body, almost stingingly carbonated, quick-finishing, and only slightly harsh in the finish; just a hint of pvc, but better than most - would like to try this fresh on tap.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2010
brought back the mini bar of my hotel in Montego Bay. Sweet honey malts on the nose with hints of cereal grains. Pours a golden blonde with a thick head that dissipates with champagne like carbonation. Light, very light, with a crisp dry finish. The flavor has light bread notes, with mild grassy hop notes.

Clear bottle, thank you Colin and Kendra. Medium yellow, no head at all. Typical very corny aroma. Taste not nearly as offensive as aroma suggests. In fact not offensive at all - quite a lot of malt for the style. Hops, which are present, are fruity. Good lively carbonation, again, not as expected based on very flat appearance. As far as pale lagers go, this one has some flavour and is not bad - I’d happily drink it at a sun spot vacation.

12 oz. bottle from a friend. My friend went to Jamaica and all I got was this stinking beer. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a medium sized white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is grainy pale malt, hay, and light citrus. The flavor is more grainy pale malt, light corn, a weird apple note, and light grassy bitterness. This was a tick; nothing more nothing less.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2009
On tap in Jamaica. Pours a light golden color with a white foamy head. Smells of light grain and sweet corn. The flavor has a faint sweetness along with cereal grains and a slightly metalic finish. Nothing great, but it does the job when baking under the island sun.

jeverszeuge (617) - GERMANY - FEB 25, 2009
ersma: mein land nummer 23. im glas befindet sich ein mittelblondes bier mit recht grobem schaum guter verweildauer. süßlich, minimal hopfig, mit dem typischen lager-beigeruch. recht un-co2iger antrunk, süßlich, malzig. zur mitte zunehmend süßer, leicht klebrig auf den lippen. dezent hopfige unternote, die sich zum abgang hin entwickelt. aber ohne dass das bier den süßen charakter verlieren würde. flasche ist ok. zeigt dezent die flagge und dominant weiß auf rot vor blau den namen. ich depp hab natürlich den kronkorken mit öffner zerstört, dabei hätt ich wissen müssen, dass karibische bequemlichkeit n schraub-korken mitbringt (wenn auch ohne hinweis)... fazit: schmeckt wie viele lager aus der ecke. austauschbar und unspektakulär.

PorterPounder (5542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Columbia, SC - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour, long lasting white head. Corny aroma, lots of yeast. Flavor is full of corn and yeast with some soggy kids generic supermarket brand cereal. Tired mouthfeel. About what I expected.

12oz bottle. pours clear straw with small white head. nose is loaded with green apple, with some grain/hay. flavor is pretty awful, fizzy green apple and sour lactic, grain water. just a horrible tasting beer. the worst beer i’ve had in a long time.
