Horrible, lifeless extra-light-gold beverage with a light grain aroma. Passive, predictable flavours of sweet malt and a tiny hint of hops. Not much going on overall. Call this one a blond bimbo.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Carib is the type of beer that benefits more from the drinker’s desperate thirst than from its own merit. It reminds me a lot of Corona in practically every respect; urine yellow and semi-transparent, bleached foam and a crispy and a somewhat bitter taste with some obscure sparkles of citrus. But besides its iniequitous nature, not much can compare with this beer when you’re face planted in the sand on the beach. Carib is brewed on a lot of Caribbean islands and therefore comes in many slightly different forms. For example, the Carib on St. Thomas tasted like a slightly lighter version of Corona (I had the two in front of me to compare) while the Carib on Grenada smacked of Pilsener skunkiness. Like I said, when sweat is cascading over your eyes, nose, lips and down your chin these inconsistencies don’t matter, as long as some cold liquid is streaming down your gullet it’s all good. My view is impartial to scorching suns and wracked perspiration, however, so now withdrawn from the oppressive open of the brutal outdoors I can fairly evaluate Carib as being quite awful.

Can brought back from Philipsburg, St. Maarten. Very light body with a lasting foamy head. Gets a 3 on appearance for lasting head. Yea, its yellow, but what do you expect from a Pale Lager? Nose-standard corn/cardboard. Taste-very light skunk, water, sweet adjuncts. Better than I was anticipating. I kinda dig this <shudder>.

Strange lemon tartness that pervades the whole CAN. Yeah, out of a can I exoected none of that nastiness.

(Can, courtesy of Lumpy) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops. Flavor of salte corn malt with a hint of honey.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Malt and corn syrup like aroma with a grassy hop. The appearance is pale gold and the head is average in size but fades fast. The flavor is mostly typical for the style but has a twist. It is light with some malt and some hops but it also has a light coffee taste in the finish. Thin palate but highly carbonated. Not the worst lager I have had but far from the best.

johndoughty (4418) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005
Poured quite lively with a medium sized head which quickly went flat.Slightly sweet taste but not a lot of real flavour.Fairly bland and nothing to write home about.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2005
white head on a pale yellow body. A typical beer for hot places: refreshing, hoppy, but without much more ambition thn to quench your thirst.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Canned sample. Yellow in colour and well carbonated. Gross corn aromas and flavors. There’s an oddly coarse bitterness to this one as well. Some DMS aromas too. Best to stay away from this one.

[bottle at a MontreAlers meeting] Pale straw with a fizzy ring. Noble hops dominate the aroma with some sweet corn. Surprisingly, there’s no skunk in this beer! Sweet malt flavour with a touch of noble hops. I have to admit, I was expecting much worse. Light body and just a bit too much sweetness to the finish.
