Another Caribbean take on American Macro pilsner. It basically tastes like a Pabst. Yellow beer, corn aroma, neutral flavor with a slight metallic tinge. Drinks easily with a crisp finish.

I gotta say, I was surprised how good a cheap, generic lager from the developing world can turn out. It's got all the good qualities of a nice lager - crisp, smooth, light, easy to drink - but unusually nice flavor. Nothing groundbreaking, mind you, but a hell of a lot better than Mexican or West African swill lager that I was used to at the time I was drinking this. It's a bit malty with some interesting sweet, lemony, wheaty qualities that make it not only passable, but easy to ask for a second one. Not too far off from PBR or the like but cleaner and less intense in its flavor.

Lemony citrus aroma is the best aspect of this lager. Decent appearance , but flat, bland taste and little palate leave this beer lacking. May be thirst quenching in the tropical islands, but overall not very good...

Had a chance to try this out while traveling down in the USVI and found it to be my beer of choice while relaxing on the beach. A solid light flavor with the only complaint being an aftertaste to similar to that of Miller Genuine Draft (not a fan). It's smooth with a bold flavor that I saw myself choosing on more than one occasion.

Had this in St Martin.

Very light crystal clear pilsner

Light malty aroma, little macro lager, bit of mineral sulfury like note, hint skunky but not much, toasted pilsner lager, not bad. Grassy skunky bitterness like old hops.
