Aroma was corn, but in a kind of funky, sour way. Taste was basically the same as the aroma. Fairly unpleasant to drink.

This smells of unpleasantness. Light cider colored. No head. Tastes of...water and ....I am not sure. I am unsure but I think I might prefer a Budweiser. I do not care for this at all. I thought I used to like this, but hadn’t had one in decade or so. This is not pleasant. I feel saddened for Jamaica.

Clear pale yellow appearance. Aroma is weak, perhaps a bit grassy. Not an offensive flavour. Quite sweet but feels relatively ’clean’ and fresh.

The body has a light golden yellow color with good clarity. There is some visible carbonation that floats up to the big, white, and foamy head. The head fades quickly and doesn’t leave much lace behind. Its aroma has sweet bready malts that are almost fruity along with some light grain and hay notes. The flavor is very similar to the aroma. The malt has a sweet character with some grainy notes and a mild hop presence that adds just enough bitterness for some balance. It has a clean finish and a light body with decent carbonation to tickle the palate.

wedgie9 (1824) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Tasted on 6/3/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear golden with an average fizzy white head that slowly recedes to an average collar. The nose is corny with some light caramel. The flavor is about the same with just a touch of bitterness. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a short corny, white peppercorn finish.
