look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
A: Pours a crystal clear light to medium yellow in color with some golden yellow highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to a patchy thin film covering about three quarters of the surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of corn and grain adjunct malts with a light amount of sweetness.
T: Upfront this beer is all adjunct malt with moderate amounts of sweetness - I get quite a bit of corn with a slightly lesser amount of grain. Light hints of bitterness in the finish which fades fairly quickly.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: This is one of the better American Adjunct Lagers that I have had from the Caribbean and would probably be really refreshing on a hot day by the beach (unfortunately it is cold and windy here today).

3.2/5 rDev +20.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz. can into a plastic cup.
A slightly hazy straw color with a little foam and not much head retention.
Smell is slightly bready, maybe a hint of yeast.
This tastes better to my palate than most American Lagers. A pleasant sweetness from the malt a bit of a hop bite. Nice.
Mouthfeel is typical lager.
Overall, I give it a bit of a bonus because I'm DRINKING IT IN THE BAHAMAS! It's actually the perfect beach beer. Easy drinking, smooth and tasty.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear darker gold with a thin, wispy white head. Really poor head retention and no lacing to speak of.
Bready aroma with some hints of flowers, hay, and grass. Somewhat reminiscent of a European lager.
More bread in the taste. There is just the lightest bit of toast in there along with grass and hay from the hops. Bitterness in on the light side and the finish is extremely dry and crisp. This has to be one of the most refreshing beers I have had.
Overall, what an awesome lighter lager! It is so crisp and has just enough flavor to keep it from being boring. A great beer to drink in hot weather and just blows away Red Stripe
