A- One finger head which dies quickly. Good tracing.

S- Skunky, slight malt and grain smell but nearly untraceable.

T- Unfortunately the skunky smell lead to a skunky taste. Very dry and watery.

M- Very watery with a very bitter aftertaste, so at least it has a lot of hops; still very dry and a horrible finish.

Not amused overall with this beer. I could see this being a crowd-pleaser for the dry-beer crowd and for those who prefer a more hoppy beer, but this beer is one of my opposites.

Had this one in Aruba. Quality ingredients, smooth malt flavor, and sharp hops. This is slightly better than the US imported Heineken. Usually the beer is skunky and it just makes me blanche but this one had much less of the skunky smell. When it's not skunky, an above average lager. It beats the hell out of any US production beer though, except for Sam Adams.
