Limited edition "Official beer of Pirates Week - Cayman Islands".

12 oz can / 4.5% / BB April 2015 / Purchased and consumed near the brewery on GCI.

This is a Caribbean style lager with marginally more malts and, perhaps, some slightly darker malts than average. The malt load creates a lasting aftertaste of biscuits and brown bread.

Feel: Light but not watery body with medium-high carbonation.

I would classify this as an English bitter, based on the smell, base malt flavor and overall appearance.

Smell -was of toffee and butter

Taste - slightly bitter with a decent, mild pale ale or pilsner base? Would have tasted more flavorful with a fresh British base of pale ale malt. Hops were bitter, but not strong, maybe Kent Goldings or Fuggles variety?

Mouthfeel -is low based on the perceived low finishing gravity. If a more flavorful base malt was used, the perceived mouthfeel would have been higher, but the low final gravity made it easy to drink, or "bang on" as the Brits say.

Overall - a nice British style bitter that is clean and very easy to drink without much in the way of fermentation character. Maybe would have persented better if brewed as an ale as opposed to a lager, none the less, I would order it again.

Thanks to Eric for this one!
Served in a tulip glass.

Dark golden color, tarnished brass, bright clarity with bubbles rising. Foam fizzles away quick, leaving a thin ring around the edges.

Wet grains and butterscotch in the aroma. Buttered wonder bread.

Taste is okay, more of the same. Seems a little sloppy with some diacetyl in there. Soggy grains, buttered toast. Finishes clean with a very mildly bitter finish. Carbonation seems to ebb away after a few minutes sitting in the glass. Not bad, not that good either.

12oz can

A - Pours a light golden color. Very clear. Some bright white head.

S - Strong pilsner malt notes, some light hopping in the background.

T - Light easy flavors to start, some pilsner malts and a hair of grainy/nuttiness. Finishes lightly sweet.

M - Moderate carbonation, somewhat heavy in texture. A little bit sweet and sticky.

O/D - A light and easy beer. Easy drinking, great island beer. Nothing too exciting.

Friend brought this beer back for me.

Appearance is light golden.

Pours with minimal head.

Smell is not very pleasant.

Taste is flat and uninspiring.

Two sips of this beer and I tossed it. I'd classify it as barely drinkable. Good thing it's only a seasonal production.
