COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is brewed using the same malt used for Caybrew and CayLight, but three speciality malts are added – a Munich malt, crystal malt and black malt. The Munich malt and crystal malt add flavour, while the black malt gives the beer its unique dark colour, as well as adding a roasted flavour.

Toffee malt, caramel, some fruit, noticeable alcohol. Nice enough, the best I tried on the island anyway.

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.

Evolutionary (448) - Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2015
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.

SpringsLicker (3380) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2015
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.

chinchill (3876) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
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.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 [6110-20131219] Tap. Toasted brown sugar bread aroma. Clear, brown amber body with a quick foamy white head. Bready toasted grains flavour has a lingering toast aftertaste. Medium body. Interesting. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

Goodgrief (1965) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Brown pour with tan head, some lacing. Aroma of nuts and caramel malt. Sweet bock-like honey flavors with a lot of nutty malts. Not cloying. Drinkable. I thought this was better than others rated it.
