355ml bottle - pretty sure biegaman gave me this one quite some time ago. Okay, it’s a bit old - but honestly would it likely matter? Slightly hazy gold with a fizzy diminishing white head (3-). Smells - meh; clover, sugar, weedy grass - not great, not ugly. Taste - jaysus, that’s not bad - too sweet, but I still get some crispness, honey and clover - just a bit of paper, not much alcohol at all - I just checked the bottle - best before 21 months ago! Well, it was in my fridge - but this is seriously not bad for a pale lager. Light body, almost stingingly carbonated, quick-finishing, and only slightly harsh in the finish; just a hint of pvc, but better than most - would like to try this fresh on tap.

Bottle pours a clear vibrant yellow, rather large white head, fine bubbles, subtle carbonation, with fairly attractive lacing.   Craptastic grain/corny aroma... damn, and it looked so good.   Pale straw like flavor, thankfully not very grainy or corn like.   Body and mouthfeel seem average.   Slight corn developing on the finish   Boring, but unoffensive.   Certainly looked good, but came across as rather average.

I had this on tap quite a few times when I was in Jamaica recently, and I found it similar in colour to a traditional lager. The head stayed atop for a while, but faded with time. The taste was a bit stronger and tastier than Red Stripe and overall...I prefered this to Red Stripe. Definately give this a try if you can find it at your resort in Jamaica.

Buttery corn filled industrial global lager. Poor quality from a new brewery.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Clear yellow with a short-lived white head, it’s grainy and corny and nasty sweet to the nose. The flavor is minus the corn, but is sweet and grainy with a dash of hops. Drinkable, but not desireable.

Light gold body with a long lasting white head. The aroma is rich with some lettuce and celery. The taste has some celery with a hint of old corn. There is also a musty and grassy finish. An ok lager, the colder, the better.

RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2004
Dark amber lager with litle head, a light malty hopped aroma and lighly hopped malty lager flavour. Overall a reasonable plain foreign lager.

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.

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 i’ve had in a long time.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Pours straw yellow with a big white head. The aroma is corn with a touch of lemon and grass. The flavor is sickly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Sharp, biting carbonation. Drain pour.
