Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a pale yellow color with a very thin head that fades almost instantly and leaves no lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of light pungent malts, adjuncts, grain and a tiny bit of hops.

T: The taste has very little to it, some grain and malt breadiness and some adjunct sweetness. There's a very mild hops presence. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, clean finish.

D: Not tasty at all, doesn't go down very easily, not filling at all, mild kick, not a good representation of style, this is simply not a good beer in any way.

My brother brought a sixer of this back from vacation last week. Light straw in color with a white head. Corona like taste with a bit of hops and grass. Hey, this is a lawnmower beer after all. Salty, dry finish that left a bad aftertaste in my mouth.

Yuk.

Bottle: Poured a super bright golden yellow color lager with a pure white foamy head with light retention and light lacing. Aroma is dominated by corn adjunct notes with very little else to report. Taste is also dominated by sweet corn notes with some adjunct clearly coming through. Body is light with medium carbonation. This one is probably best left to drink ion the beach under on a hot sunny day.

This was just one really bad beer. It seemed very much like a Corona with a different name. I thought this might be sort of refreshing but I was wrong. Had a little corn taste in it and was very watery. The body was weak and there was a slight metallic taste in there. The finish left me with an odd bitter/skunk taste in my mouth. The sixer I got of this might have all been somewhat skunked but I guess that's what they get for making it in clear bottles.

The bahamas sucks! $6 a bottle for this. I figure i'm in the bahamas, should give it a try, i was wrong. Bright yellow appearence, urinesq smell. I can no say this beer did not have a taste, it certainly did and it wasnt good. Grainy, want-to-be sweet, no hop taste at all, thick malt. This beer summs up the bahamas. The bahamas are hot, slummy, everything closed on sunday, people are dicks, drive on left side of road, and dam expensive for what it is. Hate to be off topic but this is the "beer of the bahamas" and it certainly embodies many charechteristics of the bahamas in it's craftmanship and taste. For $5 a bottle, i'll take the bud light as bad as it is over this!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into pint glass.

A: Poured a pale yellow with less than a fingers worth of head that settled to nothing with no lacing at all.

S: I'm getting skunk.... Strong pungent malts, adjuncts, grain, corn and a tiny bit of hops.

T: Taste, very adjunct lager... some grain, malt breadiness and some corny sweetness. There's a very mild hops mid palette, but it is very light. The aftertaste is pretty clean.

M: Crisp, light with pretty heavy carbonation.

D: It is what it is... ABV feels pretty light so you could drink a bunch but why would you.... There is nothing here or maybe I need to be drinking this in the Caribbean...

This beer has absolutely nothing of note. Nothing stands out in the flavor which makes it easy to drin for hop-haters. It was a piss yellow in color with a thick foamy head that went away quickly. It tasted like a light lager, kind of fake hop flavoring. Nothing special, but nothing that made it very bitter either. It would be easy to drink but it's not something to pick up if you want great flavor.
