Disclaimer. This review may be skewed slightly by the fact it was enjoyed on the beach in Jamaica.
Enjoyed on tap, in paradise, on the beach, in Jamaica.
Pour was light golden, slightly darker than typical light lager. The way the barkeep Poured it, it had little head. Only a film, it was white. No retention.
Aroma was doughy and yeasty. Sweet. Sort of like working in a bakery.
Taste was cornucopia. Meaning corn, corn grits, corn meal, anything corn. Maybe it wasn’t dough afterall. It was more sweet than bitter, only mildly hop bitter.
Mouthfeel was light, but more full than typical light beers. It was quite dry, but not all that smooth. It had some gritiness to it, but felt right to the beer.
Overall, it was amazing. Realistically, it wasn’t that good, perhaps poor. I tried to keep that in mind as I drank it. But I got lost in the moment.

Bottle while in Jamaica. Not the bottle pictured; it was a clear longneck. Pretty bland, kinda a little sweet. Pretty much what you’d expect for a light Caribbean lager.

Very light. Crisp and refreshing. Tastes like cheap canned corn water. Tasted as first beer on honeymoon in Jamaica while waiting for shuttle.

Bottle. Skunky barley malt and straw aroma. Golden yellow with large white head. Lightly sweet barley malt and mildly bitter herbal straw flavor. Watery body. Met my expectations.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Straw color with a fizzy, diminishing white head. Grass, grain and a hint of malt liquor, add little to this “light” beer aroma. Initial fizzy water flavor. Better than the smell, but not in a beer way. Hints of grain and malt, but the carbonated water flavor is overpowering. I find little use for this liquid. 2/10

Bottled 275 ml at "The Little Pub at the Village", Island Village, Ocho Rios, on January 24, 2015.
Bottle was a long neck and clear if I remember correctly, didn’t look the way the pic currently does on ratebeer.
Clear golden color, fluffy lasting white head. Sweet, sugary, vegetable scent. Weak sweet taste. Thin mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness.
Mainly boring and tasteless, guess I knew that getting it, but was on Jamaica and wanted to try some different local beers and the selection wasn’t really that big!
Tickers gotta tick...

11.2 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger white head, pale straw, clear, head does not last, no real lacing. Aroma: cereal, light grassy hops, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet malt, into light bitter hops. Overall, refreshing, but nothing special.

"looks like your typical macro lager. thin feel, at first smell, lots of corn/adjunkty sweetness. nor pleasant, but it fades, and tasted ok, refreshing, if not spectacular. just felt like something new."

Drank out of a pint glass from a 11.2 oz bottle.Smells like Red Stripe. Nice golden color with a lot of carbonation, with a frothy head that consistantly stays. Tastes like nothing... Decent beach day beer.

330ml from a supermarket in Rockley preloading in room 2a for another night of Bajan merriment. Pale and fizzing with lively carbonation and a loose white tuft. Saline sour grain and rice nose like Bud or equivalent. OK weakly lemony flavour with rice softness, rubber and phosphorous taints. Deeper biscuit hints. Empty finish. Redundant pisswatter after 2 buckets of Banks on Carlisle Bay, more Banks, 2 rum and cokes and a cup of tea.
