This version is brewed under license in Antigua and I drunk it in Montserrat. Corny adjunct aroma, malty bland taste, no appreciable hop presence. In other words, a typical Caribbean lager. OK ice cold to slake a raging thirst. Otherwise, not good. Bottled.

Forgot to rate this one. Sampled can @ Gatecrasher, Sheffield. Thin watery lager without much merit. Still, it was there.

2 things that I like about this beer: the stubby bottle and the painted-on label. Unfortunately, they have nothing to do with the taste. Routine generic offshore "lager." Lacks the aroma, body or flavor of a real lager. This is not much more than gimmick beer, mon.

Probably one of the best lagers out there in my opinion. Flavor is malty and and bready. Better than any macro. This is one of those beers where the location you drink it may influence the rating. Best when your on the beach catching some rays. Way over priced here in the states, wait for it to be on sale.

Prefer this from the tap (In Jamaica , of course), although the "hand grenade" shaped bottle is pretty cool. A good lager beer with average flavor. A little pricey (In Ohio $6.50 per 6 pack) for the quality.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - MAY 3, 2004
A bit underwhelming, this lager is not very complex and rather plain. It tastes of alcohol and just doesn’t impress me that much. It’s not bad, don’t get me wrong, but Newcastle would be a much better choice if at Bahama Breeze.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2004
Pours light amber with a bubbly, short-lived white head. Slightly more flavor that most American mass production beers. A simple lager... Nothing complex or outstanding and nothing very special but still pretty fun to drink. Very distinctive bottle.

Pale yellow with no substantial complexity in flavor. But reminds me of my more island-like activities in my younger days.

Evster64 (107) - Kempner, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 It comes in a cute little bottle. Beyond that, it offers little. Very little aroma, watery flavor, with nothing on the palate. I wouldn’t purchase it again.

I had this in a small bar awhile back, it wasn't that bad, it was smooth and sweet with a wheat grain aroma, that fat bottle makes it easy to hold. It was ok, i'm going to try it again sometime.
