Okay, I like dry beers. I see other reviewers are downgrading the brand for the same qualities I'd give it high marks for.

Average appearance, even paler yellow than PBR. White dense foam pured 1/4" but quickly disipated with residual carbonation. Very little smell if any, slightly bitter hops. Overall, a dry taste, similar to a lighter beer like PBR, but with more pungent flavor, an emphasis on rye, grassy elements rather than hops, perhaps also rice or wheat or malts. Very clean and crisp and drinkable; very light bodied; no residual aftertaste. Very similar to Sessions beers. More character than other light beers, with little hoppiness. A good mixer if followed by other drinks. Very good with finer foods.

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.
