After trying a tropics light lager (see my reviews) decided to try our version, since it was in the fridge from guests last week. Have not had in years...many years. Pour is light gold..no head - just a little white ring around glass. Nose is...not awful or off putting..just carboard aged corn.

Entry is sweet nothingness - no true malts - just corn sugar. No hop presence whatsoever - this is the biggest departure from the Piton I just had - that had a crisp backing from real hops....this is either devoid of any hops. Nothing to provide a crisp finish - my biggest complaint.

Why does most of America drink this?
