Very bland flavor. Better than fizzy yellow American beers, but I’d only drink a whole one if I had to to save my life.

This beer is way too carbonated. It reminds me of heineken, but it isn’t as crisp. It seems like a beer that should be in a green bottle, though, if that makes any sense.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 bland and over-carbonated. No reason to drink it unless it’s Jamaican Nite at the bowling alley (which it was!)

This beer is pretty crisp but there isn’t much flavor. The best part of this beer was that I drank it in a reggae bar.

As far as american standard lagers this is definatel one of the best i had. It suprisingly has a nice full body taste and not a like watery urination

Wow-This is a lager? Nice and light body. Taste is kind of sweet, like lots of tropical lagers. Decent price even with bottles. Recently saw this in cans while in Europe and was suprised. I had one and it wasn’t all that good. Stick to the bottles - it makes a big difference.

This beer fills the need for a light lager style beer. Its crisp, refreshing and light. Typical selection for a hot summer day paired well with Mexican fare or BBQ. Its a basic beer - real straightforward with no complex taste. I can get it for $4.50 a sixer, so when I have dinner guests who cannot appreicate a stout or porter, this is usually what I serve them rather than Bud or Coors and a nicer alternative to Corona.

Uninteresting, but nothing offensive. More of a beer than American Macros, but not by enough to brag about.

Quite crisp and refreshing - therefore characterless and mediocre. Not a distaster, though by any means. Gluggable.
