Many thanks to Nisse166 for this beer - my country #158. Malty nose. The beer starts smooth and mild. Sweetish malty with a nice and round sessionable aroma. Mild and fresh in the aftertaste, moderate bitter, slightly sweetish with a nice malty round aroma. Nice and light easy to drink Bock.

Thanks Grumbo for this new country. Pours a clear coppery color, topped with a small and quickly settling white head. Caramel and biscuity malt aroma, pleasant and not too hidden. Taste is malty, sweet, caramel presence with some alcohol presence - warming. Some grassy presence in the finish, mild bittery feel. Medium light, nicely drinkable.

Several times during our two visits here. Drinkable but not as good as the shark beer - different style but much better. This is a nondescript beer but meatier than their caybrew.

Can purchased 1/15 in Grand Cayman. Best by Jul 15 15.
Pours clear medium amber with reddish tones that puts up a fleeting off-white head.
The aroma is sweet malt and caramel.
The flavor is lightly sweet. I don’t pick up any roasty or deep malty or nutty flavors.
A bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can with a BB date stamp of May 2015 purchased and consumed near the brewery on GCI.
Clear brown with a decent light brown head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Visible carbonation is very fine-grained.
Pleasing simple aroma of caramel malts with just a faint hint of spicy hops and little sign of the 7% ABV.
Flavor: hops, some darker malts, and alcohol esters are more obvious in tasting.
Feel: Smooth but with some alcohol warming; medium carbonation.
O: A mild bock with pretty good balance and partly hidden alcohol.
