Dacrza (736) - 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, haven’t 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...

Bierdimpfe (66) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bright pale straw color. Poor 1 finger head lasting around a minute. Weak legs with some high activity. Faint aromas and flavors of corn, herbal spices, fruity orange/banana feel, and slightly skunky. Well balanced between sweet and sour. Light body with medium carbonation. Short and faint smoky finish ending on the bitter side with a little dryness. Overall : One step better than the average macro beer but still a little stale and watery.

Busty Bomber from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is wet island cardboard funk. Taste is mildly herbal and sweet. No soul here Latrobe, no soul.

phfyysik (157) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2016
Clear golden colour and small head. Some corn and flour, fruits and sweetness in aroma. Quite big carbonation, which kills some taste. Nothing special in there, some sweetness and lemon, but otherwise watery. Not a big thing.

Turboninja (342) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle@home, from Constantino’s, Cleveland, USA. Light slightly pungent aroma of corn. Light golden color with small artificially white head and clear liquid. Light taste of corn and malts. Averagely balanced with narrow taste spectrum and short aftertaste with corn. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall, decent product for quenching thirst. Very simple, but not too much sweet corn flavors. Taste degrades fast when temperature rises. Enjoy very cold.

Flaske. Farven er gyldengul og skumkronen er hvid. Aromaen er humlet og den smager kraftigt af malt. Tør i eftersmagen.
