This only has this high of a rating because I was drinking this on Orient Beach. Straight out of the bottle, tried it with the lime and without. Actually liked the lime better because it covered up the taste of the beer. Much better than American Macros, but still not that great. Watery body with a slight taste of hop here and there, but overall the beach and the coldness of the beer made it somewhat enjoyable. Other than that I would not regularly drink this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2008 Pours a golden color and just smells like sand and surf. Not my favorite kind of beer but sure beats Corona for a great beach beer.

I thought this was pretty good. It was pretty average all around. Only part i didnít like was the aftertaste, that was a tad bad, but other then that iíd be a good beer for a hot day.

BOttle at the LCBO- Sweet creamed corn aroma, grains, and yams? Mild skunk as well. Sweet adjunct flavours, medium carbonation, sklunked flavour as well. Like a cross between beckís and corona. Iíll pass.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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 drinkerís 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 youíre 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 donít matter, as long as some cold liquid is streaming down your gullet itís 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 My view is impartial to scorching suns and wracked perspiration, however, so now withdrawn from the oppressive open of the brutal outdoors I can fairly evaluate Carib as being quite awful.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>.
