bottle. Poured clear pale yellow with a bubbley white head. The aroma is grainy with a little citrus, but a bit skunky. Crisp mouthfeel. Light and grainy flavour with a malty backbone. Not a bad island brew. I recommend drinking it ice cold from the bottle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First stop on my recent cruise was Georgetown Grand Cayman where I had the opportunity to sample a few bottles of Caybrew while waiting for the line to the tender to go down. Served in a green bottle at Margaritaville by a waitress who seemed put out when I asked for a glass.
Pours a fizzy yellow bordering on gold with a good sized fluffy white head that dissipates quickly.
Smells of light grains a hint of corn and a slight floral hop note if I think about it real hard.
Taste is light and refreshing and hits the spot on this 90+ degree day. Light sweet malt with a hint of floral hops and a hint of skunk. Reminds me a lot of Heineken or what I remember of Heineken.
Light body, crisp carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Light and refreshing on a warm day but little in the way of flavor for my wrecked palette.

A typical but somewhat better than average island-style lager. Only ever had it straight from the bottle or in a plastic cup, just as it should be.

The Caymans were great, the beer not so much. Pretty much standard pale lager here, with grainy notes and a certain skunkiness. Not the best, but at least it was consumed in a nice place.

So I bought this and then realized you canít even really see the Cayman Islands on the world map. Anyway, golden yellow, spotty floaties, weird, white cover. Aroma is skunky, corny, typical lager. Taste is metal, thick corn, sweet, syrupy.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a somewhat dark gold color with a large white head and copious amounts of carbonation. Aroma primarily of malts, maybe a little bit of grass. Crisp on the tongue due to the carbonation. Light bodied. Standard Caribbean/Latin American swill.

Ft Myers, Fl - Total Wine and More - 330 ml bottle. Very light golden pour, light white head that actually leaves a bit of lacing. Corn induced skunky aroma. Flavor is grainy with brief hints of pepper and wet paper.Not a flavor-fest. Mouthfeel is thin and starchy. Oh well, added a new country.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear watery gold with full yet loose white head. The aroma puts out mostly floral hops as well as some spice hops, grains and sugary sweetness. Half way through drinking the beer the aroma was just about gone. Donít know where it went. The taste bites first with floral hops and sweet yet watery sugary malts then moves into a bit of grains by midway. The spicy hops pick up and join the floral hops into the finish. It seems to try to become overly sweet with additional consumption but somehow remains in check. I can see drinking this on a hot day in the islands.

Served from a 12 oz bottle while in George Town, Cayman Island on the honeymoon cruise. The appearance is bright gold. The aromas and flavors are cereal and malt with a certain dryness. Ehh.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
The aroma is soapy, skunky, corny and chemical like. The appearance is the one thing this beer has going for it. It has a nice large foamy head and a golden color. The flavor is like the aroma with lots of bitter grass from start to finish. The palate is thin but refreshing. The beer overall is not worth drinking.
