I actually kind of like this. It has a light ginger taste (maybe it’s my imagination), in addition to the extra pale lager thing. I somehow can’t picture a bunch of jamaicans chugging this stuff down. I have this preconception that the jamaican people drink tons of rum. Men, women and children alike. Printed bottles are cool in my book.

nothing special but not too bad. I guess, It’s just cool to say that you have had a Jamacian beer.

Very, very basic flavor, There’s not a lot there. And I have to ask, why is this stuff so expensive?

Having grown up in the 80’s I love the stubbies (short bottles) but this lager is no different from the local stuff.

This beer really does nothing for me. Drink enough and you would get drunk. Its probaly the bottle that makes it taste good. Nothing like an old stubby. Very poor flavor.

Well, ummm...it’s beer and it’s from Jamaica...and...umm...it has a cool bottle...and if you are listening to reggae, you might want to drink this...but other than that I can’t think of many reasons to.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Subliminally, The bottle makes it taste better, and that deserves extra points in its own right. BUt besides the bottle, the beer is pretty blah, maybe a tad better than its american counterparts probably because of the jamaican water..actually i dont know what im talking about..it tastes like all other american standards..but less uriney
