Poured on tap into my Club Med cup, and occasionally a 32 oz. 'beach cup', this brew pours a hazed golden straw in color. A rich and somewhat resilient cap of white foam leaves lots of sticky lacing.

Nose is of pale malts exclusively. No adjuncts can be found and the beer offers a thick grainy pils character. Hops however, never made it into the kettle.

More simple coarse bready notes in flavor and the neutral texture carried forward to the feel. A rather basic and minimalist approach to a brew, and likely all malt in my experience. Still better than many an Adjunct brew, but the lack of hops on the nose and feel keep this from being a go to beer. I actually preferred the Turks Light over this by the pool, or the Amber with dinner. Bit too coarse and bready overall. (778 characters)

Appears as a normal lager, decent color when poured. Slightly bubbly but the overpowering smell of a hair-perm chemicals was extremely offensive. Very sweet, with harsh metallic finish. Tolerated it with a lime wedge. Otherwise practically undrinkable. (257 characters)

Franks this on the beach at grand Turks and thought it was a pretty good lager. Better than bud (96 characters)

This is an addendum to my previous review. I was really looking forward to re-loving this beer and sharing it with my brother in law. It was good, but it was different. I would not change any of my notes from my previou review, I would only add that there was a significant amount of watered-downedness to this brew. I was a little disappointed. (345 characters)

Had to try the "local beer" on vacation. Drank from glass bottle. Taste is generic, light and inoffensive. A little sweetness from the adjunct grains, and not much else going on. Light on hops. Some metallic (salty?) taste on the finish. Not a terrible brew after being out in the sun all day -- better than a Bud, better than a Corona. (342 characters)

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. (424 characters)
