2.6/5  rDev -12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bought a 6 pack of these, nice touch with the stubbie bottles. White and red silkscreened logo, import abv for Canada is 5%. Pours out a medium gold in colour, lots of carbonation, which induces a decent sized white fizzy head, with some pretty impressive head retention for a Caribbean lager. Although not offensive, the smell isn't too pretty either. Crisp malt and corn adjunct up front, with a hint of veggies lurking in the background. The taste follows along the same lines, not completely offensive, but not overly appealing either. Sweet corn and malt up front, a bit grainy and husky in the middle, with a surprising lightly hopped aftertaste, although I'm assuming those are hops, as they just sort of creep in there under your nose. The mouthfeel goes from smooth and creamy to carbonated and mildly abrasive in a short amount of time, adding a bit of kick to the finish and aftertaste. Some Jekyll and Hyde action going on in that respect, but it doesn't detract from the experience. An average lager at best, it is still drinkable as a lawnmower beer or a hot day quencher, but not something you'd savour for the aroma or the flavour.

2.95/5  rDev -1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Stubby 11.2 ounce bottle.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a 1" thick white head which lingers and leaves semi-rings of lace.

N: Corny, grainy, malty and yeasty. Not too exciting.

T: A bit estery with very faint banana notes, yeasty and mildly sweetish malts.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry with a crisp and clean finish.

O: Easy to drink and it was refreshing on a warm afternoon.
