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.

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.

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.

Beerhunter111 (7910) - Hasborn, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2014
Helles goldgelbes Bier mit geringer weißer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig, wässrig. So ist auch der Geschmack , wässrig, langweilig.

Patrickctenchi (3837) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold with a small white head. Green-bottle skunk, grain scent. Taste is sweet, grain and corn malts. Fairly typical Caribbean lager... No surprises....most likely quaffable in the proper context and setting.

shrubber85 (7804) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Skunky barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Lightly sweet lemon and barley malt flavor. Really not too bad - above average for a Caribbean/Central/South American lager.

Erzengel (2922) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 275ml bottle found in a caribbean shop at Shepheard’s Bush Market, London. Brewed and bottled at Grenada Breweries Ltd., St. George’s, Grenada. Grainy nose. The beer stars smooth and easy to drink. Typical international lager, but with a nice and full body. Grain, sweetness, but no water. The aftertaste is sweetish-grainy, fresh, only hints of bitterness. Full-bodied, fresh, thirst-quenching!

Bottle @ the 7th Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Aug 14, thanks to Blackhaddock. Pours clear amber with foamy thin head. Sweetcorn aroma. Moderately sweet lager taste, balanced and inoffensive. Actually surprised I didn’t mind this.

Reviewed from notes. My brother brought this back from a trip he took down there. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a glossed over yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than thirty seconds leaving barely any lacing. The smell had some light toasted cereal/grainy notes with a light lemon trying to come in. The taste was slightly sweet but it seemed in a slight misleading sort of way because as it warmed, it seemed like it lost flavor and became watery. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and sessionable. The carbonation was barely there. Overall, weird beer to me. It was fun to try but probably wouldn’t have it again.
