look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured on tap into my Club Med cup, and occasionally a 32 oz. 'beach cup', this brew pours a hazed golden straw in color. A rich and somewhat resilient cap of white foam leaves lots of sticky lacing.

Nose is of pale malts exclusively. No adjuncts can be found and the beer offers a thick grainy pils character. Hops however, never made it into the kettle.

More simple coarse bready notes in flavor and the neutral texture carried forward to the feel. A rather basic and minimalist approach to a brew, and likely all malt in my experience. Still better than many an Adjunct brew, but the lack of hops on the nose and feel keep this from being a go to beer. I actually preferred the Turks Light over this by the pool, or the Amber with dinner. Bit too coarse and bready overall.

Appears as a normal lager, decent color when poured. Slightly bubbly but the overpowering smell of a hair-perm chemicals was extremely offensive. Very sweet, with harsh metallic finish. Tolerated it with a lime wedge. Otherwise practically undrinkable.

Franks this on the beach at grand Turks and thought it was a pretty good lager. Better than bud

This is an addendum to my previous review. I was really looking forward to re-loving this beer and sharing it with my brother in law. It was good, but it was different. I would not change any of my notes from my previou review, I would only add that there was a significant amount of watered-downedness to this brew. I was a little disappointed.
