SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle purchased in St. Kitts. Label reads: Brewed and bottled by Carib brewery St. Kitts & Nevis Limited. Buckley’s Site St. Kitts & Nevis Product of St. Kitts and Nevis Pours medium clear yellow under a soap scum white head. Sour cheap island lager aroma. Not much flavor, maybe a little hop bitterness at the end.

Typically pale lager. Not too horrible and can be made palatable with the addition of a nice salty kosher dill pickle.

275 ml bottle via Coop. Hazy pale gold. Bready aroma with a similar flavour. Some citrus at the end, mild hop pepper. Probably fine on a Trinidadian beach.

dresden (1154) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle from Tony. Lightly skunks, some half decent hop aroma though. Sweet and mostly tasteless, reminds me of Henekein but better?

Canned 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and Jablanko. Clear yellow coloured, small to medium sized airy white head, corn in the nose. Corn and brewing cereals with short bitterish finish. Typical Carib lager.

Thanks Marjan (and heavy)! Shared with ogivlado and Jablanko. Poured a shiny yellow-golden body with a small head. Strange, not that pleasant aroma, corny feet really, dusty, eggy, meh. Corny, sweetish taste with a solid carbonation bite, bready, eggy again, but somehow harmless and drinkable, a crappy beer saved by the mouthfeel. And even though the adjuncts are dead obvious, it managed to be better than many beers that followed...

Oh they just keep getting worse on this trip. Bottle pour in Belize very light gold. Nose mostly skunk with a hint of corn. Taste odd astringency followed by brief sweetness. Then the corn and adjunct. What’s that? A hint of cashew at the end? Really not very pleasant.

bulldogops (1140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Rating #1106 - May 25, 2014 - Taste of Spruce Grove - Sample. Smell is horrifying. Very skunky. Clear pale yellow lager, taste is like any other high distribution lager. Highly carbonated. Nothing to get excited about, especially for import prices.

Straw color and aroma. More hop bitterness than found in the typical light lager but the taste was a little offensive. Still, cooling on a hot summer day.

DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Tiny bottle, which I purchased thinking that I hadn’t rated a Trinidadian beer before (forgot about Carib...D’OH!). Skunky hops, sweet corny malts, makes me nostalgic for old-school Heineken before they leeched out all the hops and started contract brewing it.

Grumbo (875) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle in Tobago, also one brewed in St Kitts. No distinction. Pours pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of grass and corn, touch of malt. Medium carbonation, light sweetness. Slight bitterness to finish.
