This nice light lager is best served frigid. It is the perfect companion for a summer afternoon. I like the subtle bitterness with a lightly sweet finish. Compare to Corona without the need for lemon

This is ab excellent beer. Had it for the 1st time during a trip to the virgin islands and fell in love with it. Drinking it always reminds me of a better place in the sun

Bottle Shirley Heights Antigua. Tried Carib for the 1st time recently. Liked it. Better than Red Stripe. Went down easy, very easy. Another good reason to visit the Islands.

Raised in the tropics I guess I am a sucker for the central south american skunky lager taste you get from this type of brew. This beer was more full bodied than the average island beer and quite refreshing.

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.

I spent a day on the beach on St. Marten, and they were selling these for a buck a bottle. Maybe it's just because I now associate this beer with relaxing on the beach, but I enjoyed it. It was nice and refreshing to down as I was lying under the hot carribean sun. Very similar to Corona...I found there to be a slight citrus twang. Nothing to write home about, but worth trying if you ever see it.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Pours with a very pale yellow color, completely clear, and with a decent although not lasting head. There’s not much to the smell, just some hops, sweet in character. The taste starts with a minimal sweetness and is followed by a very mild hoppy bitterness. A nice combination of bitter-sweet. Although not much to the taste, it’s a very refreshing and easy to drink beer. What I call, a perfect beach beer.

Ok beer. Not really my taste though. Very easy to drink.
