I tried this beer on vacation in the Bahamas just because it was cheaper than domestic beer over there. This wasn't a bad tasting beer for the price. The look of the bottle is nothing special but that's what they are known for.

Pours a yellow with a medium head
Has a slight bitter taste with a good mouthfeel

A pour out of a stubby bottle into a pint glass yields a clear straw colored beer with a fizzy one finger head.

Smells skunky at first followed by a light grainyness along with some light grassy hops.

Taste is a mixture of cereal grain and grassy hops followed by a moderate sweetness as the flavors fade. A light bitterness lingers through the finish.

Overall a decent beer although the sweetness is a bit of a turn off for me.

Enjoyed this stubby bottle out of a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden ale with a thin 2-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Zesty malt and grain aroma. Not a huge nose but pleasant nonetheless.

T: Light bitter flavor with tart aftertaste.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This is better than your average lager – better than the watered down beer you normal get. It is easy to drink and refreshing.
