3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I just had a couple of bottles of this in Jamaica and found it fairly similar to Red Stripe. It was very refreshing in the heat and I'd definitelt drink it again. However, if given the choice between this and Red Stripe, I'd probably go with the Red Stripe. Of course, if you can guarantee to send me to Jamaica - I'd gladly drink either one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2006 I had this on tap at Couples Negril in Jamaica. Iwas pretty shocked at how good this stuff was. Probably one of the best sleepers Ive had in a while. Tastes more like a damn good hefeweizen than a pale lager. YAH MON!

Bottle from SuperPlus, Kingston, JA. Not a bad Lager I thought, certainly it represented a bit of variety from the omnipresent Red Stripe. A bit of a hoppy feel here, unless I imagined it. Quite refreshing and balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Not bad.

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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I had this on tap quite a few times when I was in Jamaica recently, and I found it similar in colour to a traditional lager. The head stayed atop for a while, but faded with time. The taste was a bit stronger and tastier than Red Stripe and overall...I prefered this to Red Stripe. Definately give this a try if you can find it at your resort in Jamaica.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber lager with litle head, a light malty hopped aroma and lighly hopped malty lager flavour. Overall a reasonable plain foreign lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle - pretty sure biegaman gave me this one quite some time ago. Okay, itís 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, thatís 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.

Poured an orange-tinted gold, with medium head that lingered and gave way to good lacing. Aroma was slightly hopped, with some fruit, but hard to distinguish waht. Flavor was mild and uneventful, almost like a BMC macro. Finish somewhat flat and sour. Not much to this beer.
