2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Flaska. Ljust guldfärgad med vitt skum som snart lägger sig. Gräs och jordighet i doften. Smakinslag? Ja, nu börjar problemen, för här var det inte mycket att hänga i granen. Det är vattnigt och tunt och där finns en svag gräsbeska som ändå får mig att förstå att det är en öl jag dricker. Meningslös.

bottle. Pale straw with small head. Indistinguishable from mexican light beers, except this one is from Jamaica. Watery and bland, but not unpleasant.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Rated on 2-18-2011. This bottled beer pours a small very fizzy white head with a very short retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt and grain. The taste is lightly sweet, malty and grain. The mouth feel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is not good. Plain and simple.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours brilliant clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma of DMS, corn, slight floral and earthy hops. Taste is very light with corn, sweet malt, and a dry finish. Very light body.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Location: Way too many of these in Jamaica, Dec ’13
Aroma: The nose is adjunct lager corn, some light malts, and not a whole lot else
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head
Flavor: The taste is as minimal as you’d expect, with some corn and light sweetness
Palate: The body is light and fairly watery, way too fizzy, not too much else going on
It’s not the worst light adjunct lager out there, but it certainly isn’t leaps and bounds better either. I don’t remember the carbonation being so extreme on bottled tastings, but the draft was a total over-carbonated mess.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours crystal clear golden yellow. Liffey white head. Smell of corn and soap. Slightly metallic flavor. Slightly sweet. Not bad for a lite beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is pretty bad, lots of corn and a bit of wet cardboard. The flavor is just as bad as the aroma suggests, awful corn syrup and soggy wet grain all over the place. If I’m drinking a Pale Lager, I at least want it to be clean and crisp. Even if it lacks flavor, that’s OK, but these flavors are just offensive. Light bodied and watery, yet still sticky and clingy from the heavy corn presence. Can’t even imagine liking this on a super hot day lounging on a Jamaican beach.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On vacation in Jamaica. Pours a piss yellow color with a decent white head that dissipates to a slight film around the edge of the glass. Smell is bread, malt, and yeast. Taste follows, with a bit undesirable funk. Light version is a bit more easy drinking. Still wish I could get a decent beer on vacation...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A 0.33l bottle from Whole Foods Market Tribeca. Well, at least it looks like a 0.33l bottle, but it says 11.2 fl oz. No idea what that means. My first pale lager here in the US of A, and it’s not even from the pale lager-country! A crystal clear pale golden body with some small unfiltered particles and a small quickly fading bubbly lager head. Smells of corn really. Boiled corn, soft grainy malts and a little bit of soap. Bah.. Doesn’t taste all that bad actually. Mostly because there is it much taste at all. A little lemony citrus hint is basically what I manage to squeeze out of this one. Really mild and yeah light. Not bad to drink k actually, but it lacks flavor. 20.06.2013
