A: This poured a clear gold with white head.
S: It smelled likes typical adjunct lager with dirty malt and some sweet corn.
T: It tasted like it smelled, not too different from Miller Lite. Light dirty aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with moderate carbonation. Ok body.
D: This was unimpressive all around, definitely not as good as Kalik. Not worth having more than once.

Not your typical adjunct lager. Maybe it was the beach and the sun but this beer had a depth of flavor that made me believe it was more like a euro lager. Some malt. Refreshing hoppiness.

Reviewed in context of an island vacation...clear bright gold, light foam, active bubbles. Light straw hay fruitiness. Touch sweet. Clean and crisp island beer. Better adjunct than others.

In my opinion beers need to be evaluated in the context of where they are brewed. While in the Bahamas I enjoyed Sands by the bottle and from the tap and can say this matches the climate there very well. I am honestly shocked how low the scores are for the beer although I value taste far more than any other factor. I would give this beer a try - and definitely give the Bahamas a go as well - Cheers!
