Very unimpressive. Goes down like a Keystone Light (basically, water), yet tastes like a Miller Light. Drinking out of this foresaken bottle makes me feel like a hobo.

Contract brewed in UK. Looks like a beer, smells like the can it comes in. Very sweet with no bitterness. Another country scored.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
Sure tastes great on the beach in the Caribbean. Sure tastes crummy at home. Indistinguishable from any of a hundred other swilling brands - too sweet, chemical tasting with the feel of fake carbonation.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Mostly a cardboard hops aroma/flavor. A little sweet. Fuller bodied than a typical American Standard. May be good on a hot summer day.

Darkover (1535) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Pale yellow with a big white head. Nasty malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, malty and much better than the aroma.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Deep straw in color with a small white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is of floral and grassy hops and corn. Flavor is moderately bitter,starts lightly sweet and finishes clean and dry.

Enniskillen (2046) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Corn and malt aroma. Smoother then the other lagers I have had, little noticable carbination. Real watered down, just like most lagers. Might as well rate it though.

Saw it sitting on the shelf at a bar and figured it was about time to get around to giving the stuff a rating. Fizzy yellow, smells like corn, tastes like adjuncts. Not at all good, and the carbonation bites at your tongue. Having said all that, I've had some good times with ice cold Red Stripes out of a bucket on a hot summer day with friends. Something about the bottle I guess.

They don't really drink this in Jamaica do they? Skunky, watery and metalic taste. Maybe it's better lounging on the beach, but it wasn't for me.

Weak aroma. Not very good dark look. Taste is alright first jamacian beer I've ever had. Not a bad beer not really worth the money you spend for it though.
