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.

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.

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.

12oz clear bottle served in a pint glass

A - Pours a golden pale color with a thick bright white head. Very active carbonation along with stellar head retention. Great looking beer.

S - Pale malts, grassy hops, light cereal grains, chalky yeast.

T - Like the nose, pale malts, slightly grainy, has a light cereal sweetness to it. Grassy hops add some bitterness, slightly salty on the finish.

M - Full carbonation, body has to heft to it but its light and clean.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Having this fresh, im sure makes a big difference. It's light, refreshing, and actually not offensive. I've definatley had worse lagers this week.

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