look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a can into a pint glass

L: Clear golden pour with fizzy white head.

S: Lemonade/citrus.

T/F: A sweet version of Liney's 'Summer Shandy'. Lemon soda beer.... overly sweet but drinkable. Light bodied... sticky on the tongue with fizzy carbonation.

O: A Caribbean take on a radler? Drinks like sweet lemonade. Your girlfriend might like it.

Review from notes from this past weekend's bottle share.

This beer was the farthest traveled beer of our share; hand delivered from Jamaica. The pour was rather poor looking, just being a bright yellow in color with a short lived, fizzy head. The scent of this beer is pretty awful as well as just a mess of skunky, tropical lager and light lemon scents. Finally, the moment of truth, taking a drink. As the golden elixir hits the tongue, a wash of juicy and sweet citrus and lemon flavors explode in a burst of thirst quenching flavor. This could be delicious on a hot beach in the Caribbean and basically tastes like ultra-sweet lemonade. The mouthfeel is what you would expect; extremely light and highly carbonated. This beer is best enjoyed at or below freezing.

Overall, this isn't a very good beer, but if you are in a hot locale and looking to quench your thirst, you could do worse.
