Light, refreshing, crisp, clean.
It's not Corona - it's not supposed to be.
It's not Carib - it's not supposed to be.
It's Turks' Head.
No heavy aftertaste, no heavy head, no bitterness.
The white sands of T&C have the domain of this pour to themselves.
Would love to have this up North of the 44th, but sadly, cannot.
Great with a wedge of lemon, and the local conch-fritters.

Don't like? Don't drink.
Like? Drink.
Simple.

12oz clear bottle served in a pint glass

A - Pours a golden pale color with a thick bright white head. Very active carbonation along with stellar head retention. Great looking beer.

S - Pale malts, grassy hops, light cereal grains, chalky yeast.

T - Like the nose, pale malts, slightly grainy, has a light cereal sweetness to it. Grassy hops add some bitterness, slightly salty on the finish.

M - Full carbonation, body has to heft to it but its light and clean.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Having this fresh, im sure makes a big difference. It's light, refreshing, and actually not offensive. I've definatley had worse lagers this week.

Had this a few times while in the Turks and Caicos...

A: Pours from the bottle a light, clear, gold with a minimal white head which leaves no lace; while this isn't the best looking beer, I suppose its a pretty good example of the style.

S: Not much; maybe some wet paper / graininess; maybe a touch of corn.

T: Not much to it; very light grainy malts and some dry, slightly bitter hops on the end; kind of tastes like Bud and Corona mixed together.

M: Light-bodied; high carbonation; a good thirst quencher.

O: Not the best looking, smelling or tasting lager I've had, but it is pretty darn refreshing down in the Turks and Caicos; for that reason, I'm giving its overall score a little bump - plus, I'd rather have the local stuff than Bud Light, Corona, etc.

1.6/5  rDev -39.4%

A: thin head on a mustard yellow clear body.

S: minimal aroma. Mostly typical pale malts of an adjunct lager with a musty/bitter note.

T: grand turk is a nice island but they can keep their lager. 

M: light body and high carbonation. Surpisingly dry finish which greatly affects drinkability/refreshing character  which is usually the only redeeming quality of this genre.

Overall: always glad to try new beers. This one will likely have my lowest review however
