12 oz bottle - Pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is slight skunk followed by a sweet corn aroma. Flavor is mostly corn. Very light on the palate and carbonated. Worked for a beer after lawn mowing but that is about all it was good for.

You really canít expect much from a post-it-note-yellow beer in a clear bottle that was obvisouly either a copy of or was copied by corona. Luckily for my fourth of july weekend, this wattery crap wonít prevent you from swimming.

Bottle at Handsworth cricket club. Yes, it is pretty bad. Very bland, very corny or whatever that standard boring flavour is. Nothing going for it really. It is very yellow I suppose.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2005
pours golden with a small white head that quickly fades, a little skunky smell with some malt that is very vague, taste is mostly corn and sugar water, the body was thin and watery, at best this is an average beer.

JonMoore (1981) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2005
Watery yellow with a large white head. Weak sweet malty aroma. Not much taste, sweet, corn, watery. I was going to have this with a curry, but itís not good enough.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2005
Very light beer with no distinctive aroma and quite bad taste (even worst than the aroma. Itís basicaly as if you have mixed water alcohol and beer flavour (and bypassing evere brew proccess)

joergen (22902) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
Bottled. Yellow coloured with a white head. Skunky aroma of malts and grain with bitter notes. Watery flavour of corn awith notes of alcohol and hops.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured a crystal clear yellow gold with a finger of tight white head. The nose was of grain, adjuncts and pronounced skunkiness. The taste started with a nice grainy sweetness, then fell aside as adjunct notes became more prevelent. Grassy bitters smack through the middle, while a vegetal aftertaste of corn and rice lingers in the finish. Overall, itís sweet, thin, and unimpressive.

Carib is fantastic! Unless your enjoy it for the first time on a sandy caribbean beach you may not fully appreciate its context. All you Carib haters out there - your sophisticated palates are missing the gems of the average joe.

Sampled last year while in St. Thomas. It wasnít very good. For beer available on St. Thomas that tastes much better, (but contract brewed in Minnesota), try Virgin Islands Blackbeard Ale. Anyway, this beer kinda reminded me of swill similar to Corona. With the 95% humidity in the air, this was good enough to quench that much needed beer fix. Although, the free daquiriís that the hotel gave out for an hour was much better.
