Your average crappy lager. Watered down and not much flavor on this one. I would rather have something else.

12 oz bottle - @ MBJ airport. Pours gold orange with full white head. Lots of barley and sour fruit on the nose. Aromas of soapy fruit and malted hops. Taste is like a bigger-bodied Red Stripe, very refreshing with decent bite in the finish. Yea mon.

Grumbo (606) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle drunk in a bar near to Cruise ship terminal in Antigua. Amber colour, decent white head.Aroma of caramel and grain, and quite drinkable. A cut above most of the pale lagers on offer.

On a hot day I very much like red strip from time to time and the bottle are cool but the bold is not that beer. Had in a bottle s canít tell you much about head or color but the taste I can and it was pretty bad soapy and like cold meds always wanted to try but now hope I didnít ever again.

Bottle. Had this one at a little stop on our way to the resort. Medium gold color. Light head. Better than regular Red Strip. Though not all that great. Watery, flavor with some notes of grain. Aroma is slight grains, hay, very weak.

275mL bottle purchased at Progressive Foods in Montego Bay. The aroma is sweet with some corny DMS and some fusel alcohols present. There is a light sweetness and spiciness with anise that has some of the Jamaican Guinness character. It actually might be the fusel that I think I am detecting, actually. Transparent copper body with a small, quickly dissipating off-white head. Scant lacing. The flavor starts sweet and um....sweet? Becomes sweet, and um...sweet? Caramel? Thereís really nothing else happening here. The most bland, flavorless 6% beer I have ever had. I suppose it could be worse. Not sure what is bold about this beer, though.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of caramel, oatmeal and very mild hops. Taste is lightly sweet. Grains, oatmeal, caramel and hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not too bad. Much better than regular Red Stripe and probably one of the best "malt liquors" Iíve had yet. I would gladly drink this one again.

12 oz bottle into tiny hotel room glasses. Clear brown, white head. Lots of malt and a little sweetness. Iím not sure "Bold" is the right name but itís a welcome alternative to the ubiquitous island lagers.

Red Strip on steroids! Tasted In Negril, JA. More interesting than regular RS. Malty, caramel, medium dark brown, tastes much like an Octoberfest to me. Iím not sure if thatís what they were going for, but I will try some more.

First to rate! 12oz bottle into a rocks glass. Pours clear amber/caramel with reds mixed in and a small white head. The aroma is burnt caramel and cooked oatmeal with plenty of sweentess. The flavor is sweet burnt caramel, toasted bread, and of course a dash of metal. Really not terrible, but far from awesome.
