12 bottle served in a pint glass

A - Pours a clear reddish amber with a firm 2 fingers of head.

S - Sweet grainy malts, some metallic notes, gingerbread, burnt caramel.

T - Grainy husky caramel, steely malts, butterscotch, gingerbread, some fruit mixed, old grassy hops come in on the back end, there's a mineral note that runs through the entire drinks, finishes a little rugged with scorched caramel.

M - Medium body, smooth carbonation,

This isn't bad. Grainy caramel malts seem to dominate with some mineral notes mixed in. The best option if your wanting to drink local beer in Turks and Caicos.

12oz clear bottle into a goblet in the room...

A: cool information on the label about the "fez" cactus, etc; pours a chestnut brown with some amber highlights; off-white, 2-finger head; not much lace - maybe a few strands.

S: Sweet caramel malt; toast; hazelnut; not bad, but too sweet.

T: Bready sweetness - almost banana bread; light toasty / nuttiness; has a bit of a lasting sweetness.

M: Medium-bodied; high carbonation; leaves a sweet coating on the palate.

O: Not a bad amber; fairly drinkable, although a bit too sweet; down here, I think I prefer the lager.
