Better than most lagers. More prominant palate than other run-of-the-mill commercial lagers.

Another not bad variety that stil makes me wonder if the popularity is just because folks are desperate to tame their cotton mouths after a ganja fest.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Sorta has a apple flavor, but it might just be my imagination. Bland, boring and entirely unimpressive. Don't waste your money or your time on this imported dud.

I actually kind of like this. It has a light ginger taste (maybe itís my imagination), in addition to the extra pale lager thing. I somehow canít 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, Itís just cool to say that you have had a Jamacian beer.

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

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

A relatively overrated beer but not soo much. I like to drink it but is is very overpriced.
