not bad. somewhat of a spicy aroma. golden in colour, witha thin head that disappears quickly. decent flavor. overall a good beer, i dont know if its worth $14 for six though.

I thought this was much better than the "big three". Not a world class beer, watery finish, little head. It was smooth however with little if no aftertaste. I could def. drink this if my options were limited.

Golden lager with frothy white head which quickly dissapears. Corn syrup aroma. Corny taste and oxidized. Blah!

A fair beer, but its pretty much the same as any mass produced pale lager that doesn’t come from Jamaica. Being from the islands doesn’t make this anything special.

Light, malty, rather bland, a decent drinker. Better than macro crap, but not good by any standard. Similar to MGD.

Light golden, small head. I could not find any aroma. Flavor was thin, grassy and a little metallic. Some hops somewhere in the finish...

Very little happening here. It almost tastes like the juice from one of those pale melons that is a touch sweet, but to watery to have any character. It have a hard time picking this out from others of its ilk.

By some strange freak, Charles Wells bought this license. An ordinary malt concoction: pale yellow, sugary and watery.

Pours light gold in color, with a small white head. Has a sweet grainy aroma. Tastes of grains and has a bit of sweetness to it. Good refreshing summer beer. Good to drink if you out in the sun.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2004
Light golden colour with a small head. Both aroma and flavour are dominated by sweet malt, with very little bitterness. Sticky, cloying finish. One of the least refreshing "hot weather" lagers I’ve ever had.
