Dacrza (635) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 9, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: pilsner... OCCASION: continuing a pleasant evening alone ... APPEARANCE: pale golden body with disparate bubbles rising intermittently; two-finger head settles out to a semi-foamy froth that holds stronger than expected... AROMA: a metallic ping flicks the nostrils while corn and syrupy sugars pungently remind me this is a watered-down lager... PALATE: thin, slightly oily; easy drinking, if not for the...TASTE: whoo, havenít had this in a while, and I recall what happens when sentiment is sifted from the senses: sentiment is "this is the fun shore beer that is sold by that cool Jamaican dude in the TV ads"; the senses say "this is a funky hay-worn adjunct that has minimal profile beyond the sweet forty-ounce malts that wrestle the tongue".... OVERALL: Tough to distinguish this lager from any other mass-produced pilsner, save for the cute bottle and Jamaican locale--and even that is untrue, as the label sports Old Latrobe as its brewing and bottling site; as the second beer of the night, a mouth rinser that is little more than a cheap summer uplift...

Bottle. Very pale orange with a decent white head that lasts OK. Smells like overboiled vegies, souring corn. Watery. Carbonation is fine (just on the low side of typical for a pale lager), so thatís something. Sweet and slightly sour corn taste is not as nasty as the aroma but not pleasant at all. A tiny bit of bitterness. Really awful, a well below average pale lager.

Old rating. I have a really tough time with this one. A bit worse than the typical caribbean lager, but generally nothing new.

Very fond memories of drinking this at the Wild Hare and Singing Armadillo Frog Sanctuary in Chicago back in the day. Now it is just a marketing gimmick from a sleazy macro in PA. Ah...the memories...

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 Bottle. Pouree a watery super thin pale gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma of skunked veggies, saw dust. Body is watery with strong carbonation. Flavor is pretty lousy, straw, grass, slight hint of honey bread, actually not as bad as I was expecing. Overall though blah

Pours a light yellow color with a very light foamy head and minimal carbonation. Has a light hop smell to it. Has a nice and light smooth taste to it and the palate leaves the mouth a little dry afterwards, not a bad beer.
