Turk And Caicos' corona. Light but good.

Bottle dated "best by 9/16/16" into pilsner glass. In Turks and Caicos so presumably it's quite fresh from the brewery a couple of miles away. Pours a light straw color with a thin, white head. Initial impression is Corona with a little sweetness added. Which actually makes it slightly better than Corona, but still not very good.
Hey, it's from the Caribbean. About what you'd expect.

Basically an American macro pilsner style beer. If you've had cheap American beer you've had something like this. Looks like yellow suds, smells like corn, tastes like a Pabst and drinks pretty easy.

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

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.

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.
