Carib is a lager of European origin. It is a pale golden straw colour with a rich head formation. It is slightly aromatic, with a neutral balance between malt and hops, sweet and bitter. Medium-bodied mouth-feel leads directly to a semi-dry finish with only a hint of bitterness. No accented hop or malt character. Refreshing drinkability for a parched and thirsty palate. Diacetyl should not be perceived. Carib is brewed using sugar as an adjunct. The "clean label" policy applies i.e., no additives that have to be declared.

Clean and crisp, best drank ice cold and perfect in 275ml format. No preservatives leaves you feeling good as gold the next day. The Grenadan brewed is far better than the Trinidad counterpart though I must say. Enjoy this A+ beer

    Pours wan yellow with a frothy eggshell head. Weak aroma offers fresh malt, noting else, may be a bit skunky - possibly from being in a clear bottle. Flavor features a little malt, a bit of apple, a bit of hops. Texture provides OK body and so-so fizz. Well, had to try it.

    Pale yellow small white lacing foam ring. Not the best aroma and taste, but then I am in cold climate while drinking this and just finished an good IPA. I have tasted and not finished the bottle. (Parijs 201411)

    Straw coloured pour with a white foamy head that left scattered lacing. Aromas of grass and skunk. Metallic grassy taste. Overall not overly enjoyable...likely refreshing in the hot Caribbean sun but I've had better "tropical" beers.

    330 capped and translucent bottle. Poured in an English dimpled pint a clear and golden-orange coloured P L with a one finger light beige foamy head that had no retention and no remaining bubbles. Soft carbonation. No lacing. The aroma is a pronounced skunky feeling and, in a second stege, faint hoppy notes. The flavour is malty notes, corn, cardboard, paper and ... bland. The mouthfeel is light crispy, thin, fizzy and sparkling. The texture is watery. This light to medium bodied P L has a dry skunky finish. Drinkable ? Yes, and I expected no more and ... I get what I expected !

    pours nice pale yellow, with a nice head that disappears quickly. Has a nice aroma of hops and grains. This beer is great on beach under the Caribbean sun then it is when brought into the states. It is better ice cold and with a slice of lime. Has a nice clean crips taste. my rating is an average of Caribbean and here.

    Beer purchased in Caribbean by one of my many beer mules and then smuggled back to Canada in his bum (just for fun). I’ll shall do this review from the bottle because I don’t feel like infecting one of my glasses with whatever vile skunk juice lurks inside this clear bottle. Brew is bright piss gold with lots of bubbles constantly floating to the top. Aroma is epic skunk stink with, sweet corn and random chemical. OH joy I can’t wait to put this in my mouth!! Ha my wife sitting on a different couch say’s it smells like I’m smoking bad pot. Taste is about the same to slightly better than the aroma. Very sweet, lots of white bread and corn with moderate skunk. Beer taste fake. Label says best before 2012 so I know it’s not expired. I’m done with the vile crap 3 sips in and this beer gets the dump, I have not dumped a beer in a very long time. Awful awful beer.

    A pale yellow pour into a tall pilsner glass with a tall fluffy white head and just a bit of lacing. Good carbonation. First smell is slightly skunky then sweet malts albeit weak. Taste is thin and watery but with a slightly sweet maltiness. Dry finish. Drinkable but only if there is nothing else.

    This is about the thinnest, wateriest, skunkiest nastiest stuff that I can recall ever putting in my mouth. Uuughhhh... No head - whatsover - no lacing, just really bad beer that tries to pretend to be good.

    A swill wannabee. And it succeeds. A pale yellowish colored lager. Where’s the head. I blinked and it was gone. Not even a lingering lacing to write home about. The body is thin to watery. A Metallic, corn aroma. And, a really bad skunky taste

    The taste was a cross between a typical Mexican lager (like Corona) with a touch of Heineken. A bit on the skunky side. Poured a decent enough golden color from the clear bottle with a fleeting head. Probably would have tasted better with a lime. Not worth paying an premium for.
