Very pale Golden Color. The aroma was heavy with malt and was slightly sweet. The malt carried through to the flavor with a slightly hoppy finsh.

I was quite surprised by this beer. Nice color, good aroma, and a pleasant taste. A little bit sweet, but this is balanced out by a bolder body. Nice for a summer evening on the deck.

Pretty decent stuff. My friend always tells me of how he drank this stuff in a bar in Jamaica overlooking the water. I like the old school cough syrup bottle style. Rerate: Decent for a lager, but only to be drank within 500 yards of the ocean!!! Was forced to buy a 6 pack of this when recently in South Padre Island, that city has one of the world’s worst selections of beer for being such a tourist destination.

I like this beer. A week on a Jamaican resort and it will begin to grow on you. Nice smooth head, darker color and a tasty finish. Leaves me wanting another one. Local Jamaican Red Stripe tastes better than that purchased in USA (could be just because I was on vacation).

Not really my cup of tea, but would be a very good bbq beer, or a good beer after you’ve been outside for a while. Very light and went down smooth.

Fairly distinctive malty, cereal flavor and the carbonation on the palate is actually comparatively low. I’ll drink it for free if it’s hot out.

This is probably the most middle of the road lager I have ever had. There’s nothing original at all about this beer to me other than its plainness. Mild presence and no aftertaste. Just OK...

I did not think this was bad at all. Maybe it was because I had already had 6 Bass Ales? I will give it another go later. I thought it was fine, but nothing special. Nothing stands out, but it was drinkable.

First time I drank this was in Montego Bay Jamaica, I didn’t drink another beer that day until I went back to my cruise ship. This is bad beer, Jamaica is more well known for something else than beer.....You know,..........Blue Mountain coffee :)

Only had it in Jamaica. Was almost the only beer they had. I drank rum.
