bottle. hooray beer. pours pale golden with a rapidly diminishing head. i detect some fruity aroma and flavor, possibly banana, though it mainly tastes like a sweetened domestic american lager.

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
Jamaica’s national standard lager, since 1938, though the name seems to have been in existence already before that year, for a kind of local soda pop. Thin, loose head, yellow blonde colour with fierce sparkling. Neutral aroma, some rice, floral hops; taste equally neutral, thin and even a bit watery, sweetish rice, minerals, light sourishness, low body, little hops in the finish. Boring but thirst-quenching as usual for the style.

Oh what can I say... Refreshing, too sweet, everything you would expect really. Good when it is very warm. Bottle from Van Nap

edsspoon (419) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Can - brewed in the UK. Golden with a bubbly white head, good retention and good lacing. Aroma of orange and dusty malt. Pretty unpleasant. Taste of lager malts, grass, light bitterness. Incredibly watery. Light body, high carbonation.

Beer has a bite to it but nothing else. The bite is there but bland. Bad smell. Okay appearance. Okay taste. It hits the palate!

Light straw color. White head. decent lacing. It’s a lager, not really much to say. It’s not great, but it’s not bad.
