2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 My buddy that goes to medical school in Grenada always sends me e-mails about his weekend adventures and getting smashed drinking Carib, so when he came home for Christmas I thought it would be funny to give him a 6 pack his favorate lager as a gift. He was shocked that it was even sold here in the US.
A clear 12oz silk-screened glass bottle. When poured, it mounts a surprisingly large and resilient frothy white head. The aroma is rather sweet…. Like honey and a nip of lemon. Flavor: Not as bad as I had anticipated! Not all that skunky… rather sweet and lemony like I had noted in the aroma…. Also slightly light and bready.
Overall, it’s a crappy imported Caribbean lager…. But it’s much taster than many of our Macro bums here in the US. – Try to find a bottle from the darker portion of the cooler so it’s not a festering skunk trap!

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
It really does not smell good. Clear golden colour with anemic white head and low carbonation. Sugary sweet in the finish. Mouthfeel ok. Not much more to say. Other than the aroma it's not offensive, just bland. No thanks. Bottle (clear).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright yellow appearance - decent fluffy white head, little to no lacing. Aroma is a bit metallic, not offensive - just not pleasing. Flavor is about the same - would probably be refreshing on a Caribbean beach. Has a bit of a sweetness to it. Does not fade away at the end - what flavor is there stays strong thoughout.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Is an insult to all things nasal to even imply this has a nose. Foul, rancid scent, one of the worst ever. Flavor is passably blank, skunky somewhat but decent sweetness and not overpoweringly full of adjuncts. The smell sucks. The taste just isn't good. I guess that's worth something.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Bright canary yellow, served in a clear bottle. Despite the fairly rank presentation the beer doesn’t taste half bad. Larger for the sun and not half bad at that.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I've had this in the USVI and Belize and both taste like the same recipe although the bottles/sizes are different in each place I've tried it. This beer probably skunks pretty bad if you don't drink it close to it's source and although I have seen it for sale here in the U.S., I haven't tried it here. Better than an American 'light' beer, (and I'll take a good German Helles or Bohemian Pils over it any day), but in some parts of the Caribbean, it's one of the better beers. Refreshing, better than a Corona in my opinion, but it's along those same lines.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Somehow managed to get that "green bottle" skunky character into a clear bottle. A bit more character than some other warm weather lagers it falls into the drink cold on a hot day category, preferably a hot day in Trinidad.

2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This beer's appearance consisted of a small sized white head with fine-medium sized bubbles. The body was uncarbonated and transparent with a pale yellow hue. The nose was very skunky and the flavor was malty. The palate was smooth, watery and thin. This was a light bodied beer with fair amounts of lacing.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 47. This draft brew was enjoyed at our condo in Cocoa Beach Florida. This clear glass bottled brew poured a large head of white colored foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a transparent orange yellow colored body and a fair lace. It had a skunky aroma and a smooth slightly tingly mouthfeel. It looked like a Cave Creek Chili Beer without the chili! Its flavoe was thin, uni-dimensional and contained only mild hops. It certainly smlled worse that it tasted!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled: Pale yellow coloured. Medium white head. Malt, sweet and somewhat fruity aroma. Malty and sweet flavour. Very light bitterness in the end. IMO a uninteresting beer.
