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.

A: thin head on a mustard yellow clear body.

S: minimal aroma. Mostly typical pale malts of an adjunct lager with a musty/bitter note.

T: grand turk is a nice island but they can keep their lager. 

M: light body and high carbonation. Surpisingly dry finish which greatly affects drinkability/refreshing character  which is usually the only redeeming quality of this genre.

Overall: always glad to try new beers. This one will likely have my lowest review however

Geez, I know I reviewed this on here before, about a week ago and it's gone. That last one had a major mango thing going on. This one poured with a decent, thick, foamy, white head that lasts a while and some lace. Color is a clear yellow with lots of large bubble trails. Aroma is fruit and wet grain. Flavor has almost no malt, lots of wet grain, neutral sweetness, a little bitter and some tang. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor, not much like beer at all and hasts too long. Hope this review is recorded because thankfully I wont be able to have another.

Had to try the "local beer" on vacation. Drank from glass bottle. Taste is generic, light and inoffensive. A little sweetness from the adjunct grains, and not much else going on. Light on hops. Some metallic (salty?) taste on the finish. Not a terrible brew after being out in the sun all day -- better than a Bud, better than a Corona.

Basically an American macro pilsner style beer. If you've had cheap American beer you've had something like this. Looks like yellow suds, smells like corn, tastes like a Pabst and drinks pretty easy.
