12oz bottle. pours clear straw with small white head. nose is loaded with green apple, with some grain/hay. flavor is pretty awful, fizzy green apple and sour lactic, grain water. just a horrible tasting beer. the worst beer ive had in a long time.

Pours mid-golden, mostly dead with some dusty particulate hanging about, under a large yet fast-fading white head. Aroma of old pale malt and some stale caramel malt with a hint of metallica. Flavor finds adjuncty DMS notes to sweet pale malt with a hint of grassy bitterness. Tastes overshelved because it is (BBE 11/05)... but you have to hold that against the retailer, not the consumer.

I remember hearing that in hot weather you can quench your thirst by sucking on a smooth stone. You may be better off sucking on that "real rock" instead of this one.

had several bottles in the mini bar in our room. The predominant flavor to me was the cardboardiness...wet paper was abundant. Other than that, not memorable, light-bodied.

Tried to get some of this in Jamaica and even when a Real Rock tap was present there was never any beer available. Only Red Stripe. So lets give one a try back in the States. It pours a nice big soapy head but the aroma is not much to brag about. Well, ok, neither is the beer. It is another Pale Lager that doesnt have much flavor. Like most of them this one doesnt taste bad but there just isnt enough flavor at all. It is easy to drink on a warm beac. If you run out of rum cream, have a Real Rock.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Poured an orange-tinted gold, with medium head that lingered and gave way to good lacing. Aroma was slightly hopped, with some fruit, but hard to distinguish waht. Flavor was mild and uneventful, almost like a BMC macro. Finish somewhat flat and sour. Not much to this beer.

Another boring lager from a hot third world country. It wasnt bad it was just boring. Its probably good in the Jamaican heat.

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a minimal frothy white that diminished quickly with virtually no lacing. Moderate grass hop aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short duration. More drinkable than my expectation.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2006
not much going on here. little in the way of hops, malt or yeast. a very pale straw color with a short lived head and almost no lace. after finishing this one, it just leaves me wanting more beer, but not this one!

Bottle from SuperPlus, Kingston, JA. Not a bad Lager I thought, certainly it represented a bit of variety from the omnipresent Red Stripe. A bit of a hoppy feel here, unless I imagined it. Quite refreshing and balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Not bad.
