1.27/5  rDev -54.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Best Before: Oct/09.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, yellow body and despite a continually heavier pour, I just can't coax more than a few bubbles to form an ultra thin, white head. Ah well.

Smell: What a stink! Extraordinarily skunky aroma that strikes your nose mere seconds after the bottle is opened. If you don't mind a big snootful of skunk with each whiff, you can barely make out faint hints of cereal-scented malts.

Taste: Gah! Oh, how horrid. Some pale malts with a cereal sweetness and very minor hop character and bitterness, but mostly you're treated to a whole host of icky tastes. Plasticy, skunk spray, and metallic! Three disastrous tastes together at last. A couple glasses of cool, clean water only begin to wash that out.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: As much as I usually appreciate it's inclusion on the bottle or label, the Best Before date serves no purpose whatsoever here, as this beer died an ignoble death long, long before October 2009. Sure, the year is still young, but this is, by far, the worst beer I've had all year! Avoid at all cost.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A: The beer is clear pale yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge, and bits of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet malts are present in the nose along with hints of corn adjuncts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is rather sweet with flavors of biscuit malts and hints of corn adjuncts.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite sweet, but I don't get as much of the adjunct malts in the smell or taste compared to other beers in the style.

275ml bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a crystal clear dark straw color with a decent sized white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of sweet honey like malt with a touch of carmelization, a hint of floral hop and a touch of minerals. The flavor is fairly sweet with a light sugary or honey like flavor with a touch of non descript fruitiness in it. Very faint earthy hop flavor and virtually no hop bitterness. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. nothing horrible about this beer, but I wouldn't seek this out again unless I was on the island of origin

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours with a very pale yellow color, completely clear, and with a decent although not lasting head.
There's not much to the smell, just some hops, sweet in character.
The taste starts with a minimal sweetness and is followed by a very mild hoppy bitterness. A nice combination of bitter-sweet.
Although not much to the taste, it's a very refreshing and easy to drink beer. What I call, a perfect beach beer.
