Single bottle into a pint glass. Parents brought this back from vacation... smooth and easy drinking, like a typical lager. Slight skunk on the nose from the green bottle I’m sure. Don’t let these get too old in the sun!

On tap at Hammerheads in Cayman Islands. Pours a pale golden with a medium frothy white head leaving behind good sticky lacing. The aroma is a sweet grain malt. Thin mouthfeel with a corn malt taste and nice crisp finish. A decent lager from Caybrew.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Pours a clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Flavor is corn and sweet malts. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Typical Mexican/Caribbean lager. Better than Corona (I know, not saying much) and it would be a good lawnmower beer, but that’s about all that can be said for it.

decaturstevo (4976) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2008
12oz btl on streets of Grand Cayman. Deep golden pour with light white head and lace. Corn and wet paper and little to no malt. Bit of a sour flavor with tones of bitter almost lemony. Aggressive carbonation and very thin. Drinkable in a pinch gets a little better as it goes along.

Got this on a trip down to Grand Cayman. Beer is pretty expensive down there, but most places serve this on tap pretty cheap. Not a real good beer, but there’s worse.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours yellow/gold with a nice white head. Smells of dry malt, some touches of pepper, earthy. Tastes watery with some dry crisp malt, touches of bitterness and a peppery spicy finish. Not bad.

Strait from the can. Nice light drinking brew for summer imo. Lots of carbonation in the one. Not too bad, but nothing special.

so the story first. had a family member going to the cayman islands on a cruise and asked me if there was anything they could bring back. having read an article about this brewery i said sure bring back a six pack of caybrew for me if you see it. it was bought in the rum distributer off the boat and was already two months past the bb. date on the bottom of the can, not a good start for a new brewery.

review: poured a light golden in color with streaming carbonation on the pour and a half inch of white froth that disappeared immediately. aroma has grains, sweet malt, and very light hops that may be the product of me looking for them. mouth feel is watery with little carbonation that could have helped this along a bit. flavor is sweet malt with some grains, very watery, and has some staleness. brewery had it’s first beer produced in march 2007 and if i am already buying stale outdated beer this is not a good sign for these guys. also of note the six pack cost was a little under 10.00$ making it real steep. hope someone from the brewery reads this stuff because this is not going to lead to there success.

Had it off tap and out of can but prefered bottled. Clear body like the waters off cayman this beer is light with a slight sweatness to it. Not much to say about the palate or flavor only that its easy drinking in the sun.
