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.

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.

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.

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.
