My brother brought this back from his honeymoon and was deadset on having me try this. Okay, let’s 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 didn’t 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.

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 brewery had it’s first beer produced in march 2007 and if i am already buying stale outdated beer this is not a good sign for these guys.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.

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.

It’s a watery, bland pilsner in appearance and flavor. There is nothing offensive about it, so it’s got that. Lots of corn sweetness and some grains. No hops to speak of. It’s 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.

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

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.

Looks like crystal pepsi. Flavorless macro-lager, slightly sweet. Thanks Jeff for the .rar tick.

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.
