Bottle dated "best by 6/29/16" into pilsner glass. In Turks and Caicos so presumably it's quite freah from the brewery a couple of miles away. Pours a deep, clear amber with a decent tan head. Initial impression is sweet biscuit malt, molasses, and tropical fruit. Medium mouthfeel; medium to low carbonation. Sweetness is off-putting: I can drink exactly one of these before I feel like brushing my teeth or something. Unfortunately, this is probably one of the better brews available here. Might have to start drinking rum.....
