Thought I would try it in the West Indies, to give it a chance against other light beers. Maybe I was missing something? Turns out I wasn’t, it was. What an utterly pointless drink. Empty, trivial, saying nothing, not even sorry. Could not even rise to being a thirst quencher. Would be a disappointment had I really been expecting more.

Cerveja clara, leve, pouco encorpada. Fácil de ingerir. Pouquíssimo amargor. Nota 5

LLaurin (276) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2016
Well not my kind of beer. Sweetish with some bready notes but lack of inspiration. This could, if served extremely cold, be enjoyable when the alternative is even worse. Lawnmowing maybe.

Steven_B (113) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Just a really bad beer overall. Pours yellow with an average frothy lager head. Aroma is metallic and generally off putting. Forced it down and tried not to think about it or taste it. Lucky to get an overall 1 in my rating.

Art (3036) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Drank a lot of this at a friend’s wedding in Jamaica. Clear light Amber color with a white head. Aromas of corn and some grape sweetness. This is really the lesser of two evils with the light version right next to it. Good cold. Bad warm.

Huhzubendah (3408) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Grilling out with friends. Transparent, pale golden body teeming with effervescence. An inch of soapy, bone white head rests at the apex. Aromas of miscellaneous grains, adjuncts. Clean and refreshing. Light and simple. A good backyard, summer day kind of lager.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of malts, bread, slight citrus. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter with a soft bitter finish. Notes of malts, grass, bready, slight metallic. Texture is watery, light to medium bodied with medium carbonation

33 cl bottle at home. Pours clear golden with medium sized head. Visible carbonation. Taste and aroma are mainly malts. Some bread in the nose. Taste is soft, quite sweet with low bitterness. Medium carbonation, watery texture. Decent lager.

BillWyce (964) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear straw-gold with a 2-finger white head. Light aroma, mixing lemon and caramel. Maybe some corn too. Body is light and watery. Brief finish. Flavor of grass mixed with a light note of lemon.
