Poured with a lovely, large, thick, foamy, frothy, fluffy, cream colored head that soon settled down to large islands and lots of clingy lace. Color is a clear, copper amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is malty beer with a little caramel. Flavor is the same and mainly malt with just enough bitterness and tang to compliment and round the beer out. Body is good and carbonation perhaps just slightly soft. Finish is like flavor, a little fruity, and of average length. Decent stuff; I’ll have more.

Great beer. I wish it were available in the states, but i fell in love with this beer while vacationing in the turks & caicos. Great beer to relax near the water with.

12 oz clear glass bottle on Grand Turk island. Appropriately amber in color, and very clear. Despite the clear glass bottle, it was not skunked at all. Aroma and taste were of crisp toasty malt balanced nicely by nondescript hop bitterness. All in all, this was a decent beer by any standard. Or maybe I was influenced by being so desperate for something other than a Dos Equis onboard the cruise ship. Dos Equis and Becks were as good as it got on the Emerald Princess ship.

On tap at Danny Buoy’s in Turks and Caicos. Pours a nice amber with a decent white head. Aroma of mildly roasted malt and some subtle hopping. flavor of toasted malt and hops. Not bad. Probably one of the best beers produced in the Caribbean? Refreshing and surprisingly good.

I cant recall how many bottles of this I threw back during my spring 2006 stay on South Caicos Island. Being there for 4 months doing marine bio research with only 500 other inhabitants on the island, this was the closest thing to craft beer you could get. Trenchtown bar down the road served it up, alongside Guinness (Caribbean export) and Heineken. Simple toasted malt flavors and a low hop profile. Extremely simple, yet exquisitely refreshing when served ice cold. The best beer the TCI has.

Dogbrick (7998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of a traveling colleague. The beer is a clear dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates to an outer ring quickly. Minimal lacing is evident. Mild roasted malt and hops in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of toasted malt and light hops. The finish is mildly hoppy and does not linger long. Slightly above average overall, and better than I was expecting.

This interesting offering brought by fishingnet. Thanks Ben. Pours clear amber with thin tan head. The aroma starts with caramel sweetness, pomegranate, boysenberries that have been run over on a dusty gravel road, cactus and onion. Hmm? The taste is smooth with caramel and then moving toward berry and pomegranate juice, vegetables, gravel road and soft pillowy salted and steamed cauliflower. It gets more and more caramelly sweet into the finish. Weird as well as intriguing stuff.
