I thought this be a big screw up just as Jamaican English is, but it wasn't bad. This is probably the only good thing ever to come out of Jamaica. I would need to drink a few kegs of it before I would be drunk enough to sleep with that revolting Jamaican pig Ms. Cleo.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2004
Good heavens this was bad. Gold no head. Smelly chemical water. Sweet flavours and adjuncty. It's not only dull, it tastes bad. Stubbies are cute and painted on labels are hot. There is nothing great about this beer. Every country has to have a boring lager. Thanks Heineken!

nice lager, i've only found it in a bottle. very light lager and almost perfect amount of carbonation. Try Red Stripe with a Green Olive in it (Awesome!)

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2004
(Bottled, BBE 08/2004) Typical lager color and head. Slightly skunky corn aroma. Sweetish taste with very little malt and a very clear corn presence. Light-bodied, watery palate with a fizzy carbonation. Might go down for thirst in the Jamaican heat, but it's pretty useless where I live. In summary: A quite typical American Standard brew. And a great way to celebrate my 400th rating here!:)

DocLock (10441) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2004
Pale yellow, with negligible head. Slight hops and malt taste, with a lot of carbonation. Finishes rather bland and slightly astringent.

oneStar (15) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 This is a decent beer to drink on a hot summer day. Nothing to go out of your way for. I like the thought of drinking this in Jamaica...eventhough I haven't.

imdownthepub (14208) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2004
Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale yellow fizzy beer. Drunk just to rate, things are getting bad! Awful sweet soft malt beer with very few redeeming features.

zoidberg (25) - USA - APR 6, 2004
(US bottle) For the price, you can do much better. It tastes a little skunky with a light, hoppy finish. Nothing special, and certainly not a bargain.

DUbrew (49) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2004
This beer would probably taste like budweiser in the states, but in the Virgin Islands this stuff tastes like heaven. Hoppy tastes makes it refreshing when cold. Don't drink from can, those are made in Britan.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2005 Bottled, BB310804 (brewed in UK)
Pale yellow, lots of CO2. Small vanishing white head. Strange skunky vegetable aroma. Crisp carbonated mouthfeel. Oily, slighlty hoppy aftertaste. (2/2/3/2/3 1.2)
Re-rated, Jamaican version (BBE 03/2006)
Pale golden color, decent white head. Grassy hoppy (a bit skunky) nose. Carbonated sweet malty taste, very light palate - watery. Sweetish aftertaste, no hops found. (3/2/3/2/7 1.7)
