23 March 2004 - Slight stuff all fruit roma, pissy look, watery, CUB (Carlton & United Breweries - Now Fosters) like mouthfeel, nothing sort of beer. A true easy to drink lawnmower style, taste dissolves into nothingness.

This stuff is pretty foul, I have to put about 5 slices of lemon in my glass for it to taste good. I think distribution, and time kill this beer, Im sure its better in Jamaica!

This beer may look cool (the bottle.. what is up with that?) but it tastes like someone mashed corn on the cob into a wood block, blended it together, and poured it into tiny little bottles. Those Jamaicans should stick to bobsledding. This beer sucks.

Yellow white head. Not good. Aroma of corn. Bad rancid corn flavor. not much to say about this beer. dont buy it.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2004
This stuff is hideous. Yellow, white head, and floaties? Aroma of corn and swill. Flavor has this thing going on that just coats the roof of the mouth with this awful rancid corn flavor. This makes Bud taste good. The advise to stay away from this stuff should be accepted as a rule of law, unless someone happens to place an open bottle in fromt of you to get a small sample...

HighlanderOne (1307) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 Poured from bottle - rerate 8/2008. Aroma OK at first, gets a bit trashy later on. Yellow/gold, head disappears. Bubbly feel. Some malt, green corn, a hint of hops. Finished OK. Here’s another beer that used to be better.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Yellowish Color. Touch much for Taste. Easy to down if youre into drinking a case of Keystone.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Urine-like yellow with a head that fizzles away rapidly. Sweet and grainy nose with a similar flavor, minus the sweet. Very corn-oriented flavor. Surprisingly drinkable for how low quality it is. A poor effort but I must mention the stylish bottle.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
A rather uninspired bland lager. faint grassy hop aroma, pours a pale golden colour. there is perhaps a little bit of hop flavour towards the end, but nothing too extravagant. This stuff is actually drinkable as opposed to some other bs macros.

Refreshing with a better taste than anything made by the big 3. A great summer beer and thats all I want to say about it.
