Pours a clear light yellow color with a bone-white finger of head. Dissipates fast. The aroma...pleasant. Biscuity malts, light sweetness and a breadiness. Nothing wonderful but for the style, it's actually rather nice. The taste doesn't measure up imo. Sweet malts, bready, biscuity, but overly sweet. Is this an adjunct, or a pale Euro lager?

Crisp, light and clean. Good overall.

undated but coded clear 12oz bottle poured into a Unibroue (sorry Unibroue) snifter.

A: Poured a pale golden color with less a fingers of head that was surprisingly creamy but short-lived. Some lacing left on glass.

S: Corn, light malt and a tiny hint of hops.

T: Light toasted grain with a heavy corn component and a bit of spicy hops. Sweet/bitter components are balanced.

M: Crisp; light-bodied with medium+ carbonation.

O: A light, corny beer that would be more enjoyable on a hot day in the Bahamas.

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.

Served in a chilled flute glass

This beer pours like a light champagne. There is lots of fizzy bubbles that fade quickly and there is little to no color to the body of this beer. The smell is nothing, but in the pantheon of beer smells that's not too bad. The flavor is like beer flavored water. I honestly believe that someone took stock beer, and mixed it with water to make it cheap. If I didn't pour the bottle into the glass myself I would have assumed that I was I was being cheated. The mouthfeel was all sorts of really thin, it was bothersomely watered down. Overall this was drinkable, but since mineral water has more flavor than this it's hard to say it's even average.

Enjoyed this on my vacation in The Bahamas. Consumed straight from a cold bottle (wrapped with a paper bag no less) while walking around Nassau. Extremely light in color like a Corona, but not as light as the glorified bottled water Corona Light. Taste is non offensive. A perfect beer for people that dislike beer, or only consume macros. There's a little sweetness and a slight grainy taste that I did enjoy, but I wouldn't seek this beer out unless I'm back in The Bahamas. Typical hot weather beer that is refreshing and tastes "good" when you're enjoying island culture.

It is what it is, an American adjunct lager that is fairly narrow on purpose, that purpose being the frequent refreshment choice of those visiting an island or hoping to reminisce on a trip. Why else would you grab this pale yellow headless beer? The aroma carries with it a little lightstruck quality that does peek out a little in the flavor. Speaking of flavor, this one has a ton of barley with little else. Finish is flat and watery despite the high carbonation. Aftertaste is fleeting, but there long enough to realize a touch of bitterness. With all that said, this buries Corona and is quite similar to Tusker.

[Best served in a Lager glass]

The pour was a pale yellow with a large (2-3 finger) fizzy white head that diminished quickly and had poor lacing.

The aroma was almost non-existent but did have a mild scent of a grain malt, a weak grassy hop and a moldy yeast with just a hint of caramel.

The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty with a hint of caramel from the beginning to end and not much else. The flavor lasted a very short time with any aftertaste fading very quickly.

Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with the texture being rather watery and having a fizzy carbonation.

Overall a super light beer that did not have a lot of flavor.

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...
