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.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 A nice beer, nothing special, don’t buy unless on special, but very servicable.

Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2004
Golden color, light weak malty aroma and watery taste, light body, light watery finish.

I agree with the Commercial Description 100%...not too much to this one...a little malty with a skunky nose and taste...great for a hot day...

Hooray Beer! This ugly little bottle made me look good. After the advertising hoopla, there was not not too this beer. A hot day chugging beer. Not worth the high price.

2.5
HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Light and watery pilsner type lager. Slight skunky aroma similar to most south-of-the-border beers. Flavor was thin but had some bitterness in the end. A step up from micros but not much to brag about.

Not much too this stuff. Probably okay if you are laying on the beach in Jamaica, mon. Too watery, detected a bit of hops in the finish, but no taste whatsoever in the body and nothing in the aroma department.
