Just a really bad beer overall. Pours yellow with an average frothy lager head. Aroma is metallic and generally off putting. Forced it down and tried not to think about it or taste it. Lucky to get an overall 1 in my rating.

Drank a lot of this at a friends wedding in Jamaica. Clear light Amber color with a white head. Aromas of corn and some grape sweetness. This is really the lesser of two evils with the light version right next to it. Good cold. Bad warm.

Huhzubendah (3625) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Grilling out with friends. Transparent, pale golden body teeming with effervescence. An inch of soapy, bone white head rests at the apex. Aromas of miscellaneous grains, adjuncts. Clean and refreshing. Light and simple. A good backyard, summer day kind of lager.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of malts, bread, slight citrus. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter with a soft bitter finish. Notes of malts, grass, bready, slight metallic. Texture is watery, light to medium bodied with medium carbonation

33 cl bottle at home. Pours clear golden with medium sized head. Visible carbonation. Taste and aroma are mainly malts. Some bread in the nose. Taste is soft, quite sweet with low bitterness. Medium carbonation, watery texture. Decent lager.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear straw-gold with a 2-finger white head. Light aroma, mixing lemon and caramel. Maybe some corn too. Body is light and watery. Brief finish. Flavor of grass mixed with a light note of lemon.

martpez (131) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Pours a light straw colour with a healthy lush head. The actual larger is well your standard affair. Far too carbonated. It has a certain dryness in flavour and it doesnt taste skunked but its a bland marco larger

Brettsky06 (267) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
Clear yellow color with some corn and some smelly aromas. Taste is very watery and overall just does not taste very good.

labeerinthum (666) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 8, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso richiama alla memoria lorzo. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie e carbonazione bassa ha una discreta resistenza ed voluminosa. La consistenza del liquido limpida. La grandezza delle bollicine media. La carbonazione bassa e vivace. Il colore giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo snello. Il dolce medio e lamaro leggero, con un accenno di umami. Lintensit gustativa normale e la persistenza gustativa sufficiente. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Al palato arrivano sentori di miele, orzo e fiori.

Canned from some off license in London. Yellow, white head. Bit stinky. Sweet, malty, corny. Watery, light bodied. Basically all comes down to the fact that two of us were barely able to drink half of can. This stuff is very bad.
