Some hops aroma. Sweetish, adjuncty aroma like most macros. Almost no head. Pale amber - like dark urine. Reminded me in taste of Strohs. Good amount of hops but some off flavors with unpleasant mild bitter after. Maybe I’ll drink it again if I’m in Jamaica.

Not bad. It tasted kinda sweet. Other than that the experience was uneventful. I guess I can say that this beer is much better than coors or miller.

I can’t believe they this beer is more expensive than Bud. I guess it maybe has a slightly cleaner taste.

Flavor is non existant. Those Jamaican’s need to spend more time brewing beer and less time smokin’ ganja.

Seriously, this beer is nothing wonderful or exciting. Typical lager that is quite drinkable in a natti light sort of way, but with a tad more flavoring... and I say a tad more, not a lot more. I hate the advertisments for this beer and you get barely nothing for the quality and pricetag.

Pretty weak and flavorless. Basically attempting to be just like an american beer. Just a little more flavor, but the color, texture and appearance are spot on. It’s funny, in college you drank this to be cultured. Little did I know, that it was basically the same old crap only four times more expensive.

Bright yellow with a big white head. Suprisingly malty with little hop bitterness.From a stout lovers point of view this is better than your standard standards though it loses points in aroma because of it’s sour smell.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2004 Cool bottle, very average beer. Refreshing, but not really distinctive at all. Pretty decent for a night out drinking in a college town, I suppose.
