First time I drank this was in Montego Bay Jamaica, I didnít 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 :)

Bonus points for the bottle. This stuff tastes better in Jamaica, although I donít think the locals drink it much. If you are sitting on a beach, this is a much better alternative to the XXís and Coronaís out there.

Not a very impressive beer but ok on a hot night. Has a bit of a wheat beer aftertaste that makes it better than the typical American Standard.

This beer reminds me a bit of dos equis(although I prefer dos equis to this), goes down pretty nice and smooth, a little more flavor than corona...something I could drink occasionally, but there are better beers for the price.

Very light and quite sweet. But I somehow kind of like this beer. Itís a summer-beer and very refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Barely better than average, not overwhelmingly drinkable, not particularly tasty. I like the bottles.
