Pours an amber colour, very sweet and sickly taste, slightly metallic, not my kind of thing really

This beer is by far the greatest alcoholic beverage I have encountered. The taste is orgasmic. As You Were BY x

Pale gold with almost no head, a little lacing. Big malt aroma, a little grassy, not a lot else going on. Taste is malt, sweet, not a lot else. Not as terrible as a lot of lagers going around but nothing special

I had seen this one for a while at LCBO. I needed to bring a new one tonight for baseball. Had this one with my godson, a very common taste, a slight variation (light spice) from the most common lager. Not that impressive.

Bottle from some supermarket. Pours clear golden, medium whiter head. Aroma of malts, grass, corn. Taste follows the same with mild bitter aftertaste.

2000 rates down the road, and I’m just now trying a Red Stripe. Well, what the hell? Pale yellow color. You can’t say that it has much flavor or body to it, but you also can’t say it’s skunky, metallic, or fizzy. Tastes okay with spicy food on a hot day. Plus, I have to admit that I’ve always liked how the bottles look.

jooilakon (224) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2017
Bottle 300 ml from Tesco. Aromas are malts with crisp citrus notes as well as subtle notes of industrial bottling (I can’t elaborate on this any further). White had and clear golden body. Taste is sweet malts. Average lager.

Juks (821) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours clear golden, thick white head stays nicely. Aroma is grainy, some honey, mild tartness. Taste is grainy, malty, watery. Light body, below average carbo, allmost flat. Weak brew.

Atom (2525) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2017
12oz bottle pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Musky sweet malt aroma. Watery sweet caramel malt aroma. Meh.

I drunk it on a cruise ship in the Carabian in bottled form. A regular pilsner taste and you can taste the relatively low alcohol rate of 4.7%

As easy going and loving as a lager from Jamaica can get. Loved the quirky commercials as a kid. Not hyper-carbonated as a typical lager. Doesn’t have the sickly sweet corn flavor. Watery, but quenching enough for a hot day.
