Rating 18- Let me begin by saying I believe this beer is way overpriced in my area of the United States. It costs between 10 and 12 dollars for a 6 pack which i think is way too high for a beer that to me tastes exactly like Budweiser. The only aspect of this beer I actually like is the bottle itself and the simplicity of the label. Other than that its a mediocre lager at best. The commercials are funny though.

Not great, not bad, kinda boring to tell the truth, but a free beer is a good beer! Would not drink this beer again outside of Jamaica!

Pours clear yellow, thin white head. Aroma is light apple juice, hint of malt. Taste is thin applish sweet malt, not off putting, but not much there. Mouthful is quite light. Overall a thin watery inoffensive light lager. Should have had it on a warmer day.

Within the style it's all right. Has substantially more flavour than american light lagers. And decent body for the style surprisingly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle on a cruise ship. Clear golden with a thin white head. Grainy, easy to drink. The Jamaicans say the DG means "damn good". I say just okay, mon.

Pours a light gold with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is of sweet water with a hint of malt. Doesnt have a bad taste just doesnt have much of a taste. Might be good on a beach in the sun.

sjogro (3761) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle at home. Clear golden with white head. Light sweet bubblegummy malts, grain, raw potato, vegetal bitter, buttery green bean boil water, earthy bitter notes. Moderate sweet and bitter, over medium body. Very malty and very soft. Malt is massiv. Too bad the taste is poor mon. Soft is da carbonation. Mweeeeep! Country tick Selassi-I.

Bouteille reue en cadeau. Olfactif aux tons de levure industrielle. Lgers accents de grain et de mas. Le visuel est entre le dor et le jaune paille avec une belle grosse mousse qui persiste bien. Au got, a met en vidence la levure industrielle avec un fond de grains amer (Harsh). Un soupon de sirop de mas et une lgre amertume herbace couronne un gustatif typique de production de masse qui me laisse totalement indiffrent. Une bire industrielle tout fait dans la moyenne des bires de consommation de masse.

330ml bottle from Dan Murphys Melbourne Pale straw with good head. Cereal aroma with malt note. Slight bitterness followed by a grainy palate and a sweet finish. As it says, easy drinking. Nothing complex here.
