Purchased at the LCBO as a single. 330ml bottle served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well. Pours a nice white head that stays for a while. Color is exactly what you see in the clear bottle

S- Pretty good. almost sorghum smelling.

T- Very good. Light yet flavorful. Definite lager bodied goodness.

M- Dry and slightly sweet aftertaste

O- Very good. I always buy Carib when in the Caribbean. Refreshing and full bodied for a lager

Food Pairing

This nice light beer goes well cutting through... Curried Goat. The heat of the curry can still be cut through by this wonderful little lager.

Has some aroma, kinda like sweet corn? Yeah, boil some sweet corn, add a little hops and you have it. Sweetness at first then goes hoppy---but a very weak taste. Head disappears after poured, very yellow color. Looks like any clear-bottled tropical beer. Didn't give me "bitter beer face", but just barely better than the cheapest domestics.

Pale golden pour, poor half finger head, fast to a not so sticky lace.
Smells nice, tho weak, some lightly toasted grain, faint honey-like sweet malts, faint floral hops.
Taste isn't bad. Has that adjunct lager corn, but it isn't too sweet and sticky, but cooked, like polenta. So, toasted grains also. Vegetable stew feel, light citrus, faint honey. A bit of earthy hop presence in the finish, mild bitterness.
Light body, medium carbonation. A tiny bit of unwanted sweetness gets through to the aftertaste, but it isn't horrible.
A really nice adjunct, nice surprise.

I like this one. Has a grainy tone to it and a thick malty sweet edge. Consistent profile with a nice profile. I like it. Easy to drink. Certainly better than a lot of the BMC stuff we're stuck with in the States. I'd go for it again, if my choices were limited.
