A clear, pale straw colored beer with a snowy white fluffy head.

Light, crisp aroma. Slightly pungent and a little malty.

Pilsner malt and slight hops to give flavor balance. More of a flavor profile than most American style lagers. But, still along the same lines.

Light, refreshing mouthfeel with a crisp, clean finish.

I would consider this a small step up from Budweiser, etc.

this beer is a lager from jamaica that I had not tried before until now. I thought it was a trash beer from the appearance of how common it is. I really liked the hoppiness of this beer. It has a predominantly white head which is actually smaller than a lot of the beers ive been drinking lately. the beer has a light appearance like a regular lager. I can smell hops in this beer just as much as I can taste them. it is a nice bold hoppy beer. it goes down not as smooth as something like Bud light lime. I really liked this beer just because of the hoppy taste. I really enjoy beers with the bitterness of hops just like Red Stripe and beers like Sam adams boston lager. the reason this beer is not rated higher because I like a beer with a little more characteristics other than just a hoppy lager. I will definitely drink this again.
