omhper (23432) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Bottled. Pale yellow. Papery aroma. Plenty of corn, no tracable hops, clean mouthfeel, no bitterness. In other words - a pretty dysmal industrial lager.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2006
Straw colour with a whispy head. Slightly grainy aroma, maybe some light hop. Grainy, sour taste...not entirely horrid but has little to offer besides a late bready pale malt note.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a minimal frothy white that diminished quickly with virtually no lacing. Moderate grass hop aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short duration. More drinkable than my expectation.

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 3, 2004
transparent golden colour, the initial foam quickly disappears, some aromatic hops give it a buttery nose, the body is light and crip with a short dry finish - very forgettable

Bottle from Peace St. Market, Raleigh. A Red Stripe clone of sorts, which is what it is. In Jamaica or 90 degree weather, I’d have no problem drinking this. Is it a great beer otherwise.....No.

Bottle. Golden with a small head. Aromas are grain, sweetcorn and butter with some metallic hops. Flavours are sweet grain with smooth butter and sweetcorn. Mine is beginning to warm up now and its not so good.

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.

Bottle. Light golden color with a big white head. Slight metallic taste. LIght malt, light sulpher (but fairly clean).

PorterPounder (7330) - 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.

Tried to get some of this in Jamaica and even when a Real Rock tap was present there was never any beer available. Only Red Stripe. So lets give one a try back in the States. It pours a nice big soapy head but the aroma is not much to brag about. Well, ok, neither is the beer. It is another Pale Lager that doesn’t have much flavor. Like most of them this one doesn’t taste bad but there just isn’t enough flavor at all. It is easy to drink on a warm beac. If you run out of rum cream, have a Real Rock.
