COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 1938.
It is a light alcohol drink with not too strong bitterness but rather soft taste; therefore, it’s easy to drink it up.

Brewed for US market at City Brewery’s Latrobe plant since 2012.

DocLock (9866) - 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.

oneStar (15) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2004
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.

imdownthepub (13033) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2004
Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale yellow fizzy beer. Drunk just to rate, things are getting bad! Awful sweet soft malt beer with very few redeeming features.

(US bottle) For the price, you can do much better. It tastes a little skunky with a light, hoppy finish. Nothing special, and certainly not a bargain.

DUbrew (49) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2004
This beer would probably taste like budweiser in the states, but in the Virgin Islands this stuff tastes like heaven. Hoppy tastes makes it refreshing when cold. Don't drink from can, those are made in Britan.

TBone (16080) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2005 Bottled, BB310804 (brewed in UK)
Pale yellow, lots of CO2. Small vanishing white head. Strange skunky vegetable aroma. Crisp carbonated mouthfeel. Oily, slighlty hoppy aftertaste. (2/2/3/2/3 1.2)
Re-rated, Jamaican version (BBE 03/2006)
Pale golden color, decent white head. Grassy hoppy (a bit skunky) nose. Carbonated sweet malty taste, very light palate - watery. Sweetish aftertaste, no hops found. (3/2/3/2/7 1.7)

DanielBrown (4370) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2004
On tap at the Red Lion, Kings Heath, Birmingham. I've had this a few times before the days of RB, but this was the first time on draught. Surprisingly decent - fresh, light and predictably clean. Fairly rich and malty too. Equally starnge, this was actually pretty creamy, leaving speckled froth down the inside of the glass.

Hefeinfektion (13) - Texas, USA - APR 2, 2004
Very unimpressive. Goes down like a Keystone Light (basically, water), yet tastes like a Miller Light. Drinking out of this foresaken bottle makes me feel like a hobo.

Contract brewed in UK. Looks like a beer, smells like the can it comes in. Very sweet with no bitterness. Another country scored.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
Sure tastes great on the beach in the Caribbean. Sure tastes crummy at home. Indistinguishable from any of a hundred other swilling brands - too sweet, chemical tasting with the feel of fake carbonation.
