Clear bottle; pale yellow, slightly darker than a Corona.

Nothing discernible in the nose.

Tastes slightly sweet with a bitter aftertaste. This was nice and refreshing.

Decent mouthfeel with some body and foaminess, but remaining crisp.

This was surprisingly nice on a hot day and left me wanting more.

A sweet lager like ale. Some of floral aroma. Sweet taste with some citrus, floral and slight hop flavor. But the sweetness overwhelms everything else. It will do in a punch but not something I would buy given other choices.

Thanks to Eric for this exotic post-Shark Week canned lager from the Caymans.
Can dated 13/173-174 BBE: DEC 13

Pale gold with racing carb streams, a two finger head of white foam. Unbroken skim and plenty of spindly lace around the edges after the first couple sips.

Clean inoffensive aroma, light impression of wet grain and white bread.

Mellow feel, a little papery, buttered biscuit, apple, vague pilsner malt. Feels clean, light and crisp without any astringency or off flavors. Pretty decent for what it is, nothing wrong with a little White Tip poolside.

Appreciated for the conservancy efforts of sharks against pochers and hunters, the beer is worth the effort for taste as well.

Standard straw in color, the beer releases a creamy white head that retains fairly enough with minimal lace. It's the typical appearance for Lagers designed for warm weather consumpiton.

A mix of pilsner malt and raw barley sets the stage in aroma, along with light bready flavor, mild sulfur notes, light apple-like esters, moderate floral hops, are all engulfed in an overall malty scent.

Medium sweet flavors for a lager seem very malty with light breads, yeast flavor, and soft grain taste. Sulfury notes seem to take the shape of match sticks and cause some rougher flavors. But the spicy hops round out the finish with a clean and understated bitterness. The richness of malt seems to be all malt, but without a whole lot of clean yet bland malt flavor.

Medium bodied and with a malty creaminess early, the beer retains its structure until quite late in the taste where a combination of hop dryness, mild alcohol, and sulfury bite round out the finish.

Oddly malty in that the malt flavor doesn't have much flavor- yeasty, bready maybe but it's interesting to see a non-descriptive malt character to come from a clean pilsner such as this.

Given to me by Jeremy2027.

This beer is brewed by Caybrew for charity. 5 cents for every beer purchased goes towards Shark conservation. Can says it's brewed from the FINEST malts and hops...we'll see...

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance-Dark yellowish body with a soapy white head that dissipates nearly immediately. very clear. Barely any lacing.

Smell-Sweet malts, light citrus. Lots of grain as expected. Some funkiness.

Taste-Follows the aroma for the most part. Sweet up front. Stays sweet throughout with a light citrus note towards the end.

Mouthfeel-Actually very drinkable. Pretty refreshing, not overwhelmed with carbonation.

Overall-By no means will knock your socks off, but would drink this over a BMC any day.

When in the cayman drink like the Caymanians! White Tip is slightly better than Cay Beer but still nothing special - very generic
