Troobie99 (60) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2002
My rating is suspect because the bottle I got was in Oregon and Im not sure it was perfectly fresh (and damn those clear bottles!). Ive had beers like this under tropical sun that were like droplets of nectar. But an old bottle under cloudy NW skies is something else altogether. I say go to Trinidad and try it--either way youll be happy.

gripweed57 (1861) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2017
From old tasting notes. Medium gold color. Fine bead white head. Light malty aroma. Zesty tart grainy malt palate hints at citrus. Refreshing light dry finish and mild lingering aftertaste. Decently refreshing, especially when on a beach in the Bahamas.

minutemat (5148) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2017
275ml bottle, thanks to Blackhaddock for this donation! Pours clear gold, thin white ring. Aroma bears some sweetcorn traits, grassy. Taste follows with more of the same, moderately sweet but not unpleasant. There are definitely worse Caribbean lagers.

PanMarek (404) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Pale, clear yellow pour with small, quick white foam. Corn and grassy in the nose with mild manky notes. Sweet taste with touches of hay and cracker malt. Thin, watery body, light fizz, sour finish. Comparatively little bitterness. Not quite as evocative as the Kalik, but close.

solidfunk (8595) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Not horrible as long as you keep your expectations low like like Hollywood movie sequels. Golden clear and tasteless. Some light cloying tang from malt. Bottle at bar in Woodbrook.

pkbites (910) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Light beer consistency. Corn and other grains. Crisp, light, sweet. Thirst quencher but little else. Bottle @ Lucky Lobster, Hopkins, Belize.

mansquito (6091) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2016
At work: pours gold with a crappy white head. Aroma is sugar and light skunk... how can one avoid with clear bottles. Taste is sweet and mostly inoffensive.

LazyPyro (929) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Clear straw colour with a small white head. Aroma of slightly bread malt, corn, grass, grain. Taste: sweet grains, corn, grassy hops. Sweet with little to no bitterness, thin texture. Average Caribbean lager good for a country tick. Easily drinkable and refreshing.

GlasgowTAD (1640) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle in Trinidad. Pours clear golden with large white head. Aroma is straw and grass. Taste is buttery straw, corn, grass.
