Draught at the brewery, on January 25, 2012
Clear pale yellow color, white head. Malty sweet scent and taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Works well in the heat, still a bit boring.

Tap at a tiki bar at Georgetown, Cayman Islands right on the port-pours lite orange/dark yellow with a small fizzy white head with some lacing. nose is of a european lager beer-lite skunk, metallic notes and mineral aspects. however, its actually quite pleasant on this tropical oasis. flavors are lite minerals, skunky yeast and husky malt flavors with a lot of sweetness. not much adjunct flavors which made this quite refreshing. has quite a bit of spicy hops to balance out the dryness. a very nice beer for a tropical island!

In bottle in Grand Cayman; very, very light bodied with a hoppy/dry finish. Overall it was OK, but I would not buy on a consistent basis

Had this beer out of the can in the Cayman Islands. Not much to see here, just a good, refreshing to cool off from a day at the beach.

Strangebrewer (999) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
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.

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.

ttutony (789) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2011
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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
So I bought this and then realized you can’t 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.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2010
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.
