Caybrew
July 13, 2017 - bottle at Blue restaurant. Clear golden pour with limited head. Aroma and taste that was grainy, sweet and very light hops. Wanted to try a local brew, so gave it a shot. Would have been better drinking at the beach.

White Tip Lager
Bottle @ Burning Soul tasting, thanks to haddock. Pours clear gold, small white head, aroma of light corn, pale malts. Taste is clean, largely inoffensive lager aside from the odd corn note. Could be worse.

White Tip Lager
28th May 2017: 33cl can between five at the Burning Soul brewery, a present from my daughter and taken by me to the tasting session. Could have been a lager from anywhere in the world: usual look, clear, clean and light golden, fast fading white head. Not as bad as I was expecting to be honest, light hoppy aroma, the taste an OK blend of malts and hops.

Отличный карибский лагер. Сама пивоварня находится немного далековато от порта но оно того стоило! Пиво очень понравилось

Clear, pale yellow, thick white head. Grainy aroma. Grainy flavour, sweetish with some kind of bitterness and perhaps even some spice. But that might be the Fiji snacks from earlier. Nice, fluffy mouthfeel.
