Light golden with a light white head. Nose is malty and fruity and a touch caramelly. Touch of smoke in the beginning of the body, sweet maltiness and lightly bitter. Too sweet, bland.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2004 (Bottle) Good ol Caribbean holy water for us starving Canadians. Only differences are seemingly the 5% ABV versus the 4.7% in Barbados. The beer itself pours virtually no head and a light gold body. Some sediment floaties. Aroma of some weak malt and perhaps some orange. Regular carbonation but contains a carbonated feel across the palate. Taste of slight citrus and spice. Really not that bad? Clean finish. A fair beer

Candied malt, fruit aroma, amber, with a medium white head. Woody flavour at first, a malty, nutty aftertaste. Smooth, pleasant mouthfeel. A decent beer.

Light malty and quite refreshing. I drank this one on the Beach in Barbados. This is not my style of beer, though it was better than expected.This beer as with any other available in the Caribbean lacks any strong hop flavour. Oh How many times last week I wished for some West Coast IPA's. Overall a smooth thirst quenching beer and better than all the other selections I found.
