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!

Can purchased Jan in Grand Cayman. Clear gold with a white head. Horrible rotted vegetable aroma. The flavor thankfully leaves the aroma behind. Lightly sweet, no hop flavor.

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.

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.

My brother brought this back from his honeymoon and was deadset on having me try this. Okay, letís see how she goes. The appearance was a light yellow/blonde color with a one finger white bubbly head that quickly dissipated. There was barely any lacing. The smell was grainy and cereal - like sweet with some light corn. The taste was once again mainly sweet but didnít carry anything else. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across pretty sessionable. Overall, not a bad beer just not one to have on a regular basis.

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.

Can brought to me by a student and shared with a bunch of the MN crew at Steazyís. Clear light yellow pour. Clean and crisp. A hint of citrus and a light lager finish. Just fine.

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 itís 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.

Itís a watery, bland pilsner in appearance and flavor. There is nothing offensive about it, so itís got that. Lots of corn sweetness and some grains. No hops to speak of. Itís not really worth much else by way of effort in describing it.

Another boring lager with a swampy taste and aroma. Goes down easy but is hard to find redeeming qualities with it. Barely worth the effort to drink, realy.
