UNCCTF (584) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Bottled. Boring, to say the least. It’s refreshing on a hot day, I guess, but it’s basically Jamaican Bud... and not the good kind of Jamaican bud either.

jacobarts (206) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
Bottle Bought in meny in grimstad norway. Bright clear pale color with fastly diminishing white head. Aroma. Some malt. Weak aroma. Taste is like a sparkling water, refreshing on a hot summer day.

Aus der Flasche im 2013-01 getrunken. Sicher nichts besonderes aber ein schönes leichtes Bier - überraschend gut trinkbar für warme Tage.

cattaneopapa (391) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear straw colour with a small head that dissipates quickly. Skunky aroma. Taste is malty with notes of lemongrass and bread. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Bottle in marseille, France. Quite normal lager, i guess it’s ok to have it on a Jamaican beach

Turtles (2651) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2017
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Looks very thin clear for sure, pale golden. Medium sized brief head that disappears almost completely, only some lacing. Sweet grainy aroma, syrup and canned corn. Thin and watery mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Sweet sugary taste, sweet grains and boiled vegetables. Lacking bitterness, very poor brew.

1.8
Bacchus66 (347) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Malt nose, grainy corn, hops flavors. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Not much to this. Nice to have one in hand, but from a strictly taste perspective it’s nothing special.

AlfredoGarcia (287) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 19, 2017
Had it in a bar. Fantastic packaging, the bottle is really cool. Better than the average lager, but not that much.

cervezadrinker (68) - MEXICO - JUN 15, 2017
liked the bottle, reminds me a medicine bottle; pale yellow color with white head, very clear, aroma is malty with mild hops, taste is the same, low bitterness, light body, imo is decent for a macro lager, easy to drink and would pick this one on a sunny day... after that is a bit boring and nothing special. yet, better than most macros i used to drink.

It is a light alcohol drink with not too strong bitterness but rather soft taste; therefore, it’s easy to drink it up. Precis så. Skål Ante!

Bottle from Krogers. Pale yellow with bright white head and light body. Faint fruity hops aroma, sweet mild thin taste. Clean sweet malt aftertaste. Ok, if Coors Light is the alternative.
