2.43/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Format: a light green 355mL bottle with an okay macro lager.

Appearance: a clear amber-gold with nary a head at all. Some limited visible carbonation. All together a bit average.

Aroma: the aroma is more adjunct than grain - a corn syrup predominantly. Not particuarly brilliant.

Taste: some grains on the taste - still pretty cheap but it isn't the most expensive beer in the world, so fair enough. Still plenty of cheap adjuncts.

Aftertaste: drops away apart from an awkward metal fug and some cheap grains.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with medium carbonation. Not very refreshing for a macro lager.

Overall: not the best macro lager I have ever had - not by a long shot. I think I'll skip this one in future.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Pours a clear golden color which is topped with an average white head that settles down to almost nothing immediately.
There's almost nothing to the smell, just a slight grainy/malty aroma which is hardly noticeable.
The taste is light, slightly watery and bland. Initial sweetness followed by a balanced body. No real bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable, but that's it. Not much to it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

350ml bottle poured into pint glass 9/9/13

A straw yellow liquid saturated with big fast bubbles, a thumbs width of foam quickly falls to a thick film that's sustained by the bubbles long enough to leave a few patches of lace

S skunky sweet grains, paper shredder in action, sour lemon, smells crappy

T more of the same really, cardboard instead of shredded bleached white paper, chemicals I can't place, nothing good going on here

M watery and foamy, wet cardboard on the finish

O about what I expected for a green bottled Caribbean brew, sweet malts, skunk and soggy cardboard

its bad but not to the point where I wouldn't drink it on a hot beach, I just wouldn't be thrilled I suppose
