Drinkable, but nothing special...mild aroma, not unpleasant, but not outstanding either. Cool squat bottles :D

Weak and watery,another lager for a hot summer day in Jamaica, not London,had it recently during the Cannibal corpse gig in Camden , it was one out of 3 choices of beer during the venue.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
Just a bit darker in color than most Pilseners. First taste is tart followed by an astringent aftertaste. Very little head, active bubbles, just the hint of lace.

Just an OK lager. Nothing special and at the same time nothing really awful either. I had a bunch of these in Jamaica recently. Pours yellow with a white foamy head. aroma is sometimes skunky and not skunky. Overall, the taste is clean and crisp. neat bottle

I thought this be a big screw up just as Jamaican English is, but it wasn't bad. This is probably the only good thing ever to come out of Jamaica. I would need to drink a few kegs of it before I would be drunk enough to sleep with that revolting Jamaican pig Ms. Cleo.

Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2004
Good heavens this was bad. Gold no head. Smelly chemical water. Sweet flavours and adjuncty. It's not only dull, it tastes bad. Stubbies are cute and painted on labels are hot. There is nothing great about this beer. Every country has to have a boring lager. Thanks Heineken!

nice lager, i've only found it in a bottle. very light lager and almost perfect amount of carbonation. Try Red Stripe with a Green Olive in it (Awesome!)

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2004
(Bottled, BBE 08/2004) Typical lager color and head. Slightly skunky corn aroma. Sweetish taste with very little malt and a very clear corn presence. Light-bodied, watery palate with a fizzy carbonation. Might go down for thirst in the Jamaican heat, but it's pretty useless where I live. In summary: A quite typical American Standard brew. And a great way to celebrate my 400th rating here!:)

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2004
Pale yellow, with negligible head. Slight hops and malt taste, with a lot of carbonation. Finishes rather bland and slightly astringent.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 This is a decent beer to drink on a hot summer day. Nothing to go out of your way for. I like the thought of drinking this in Jamaica...eventhough I haven't.
