Bottle quickly downed in St. Kitts. What can I say, it’s a bland and soul less lager. The only upside is the fact that it’s clocking in at 5.2%. A plus in my opinion.

Bottle by the beach on St Croix. A yellow beer, served with a lime. Thin, sweetish, cold, wet, mostly inoffensive and extremely forgettable.

From bottle 31.12.15. Transparently pale golden. Initially foamy, but diminishing white head. Sweet aroma with succade, grass and flowerfields. Similarly sweet taste. Very low bitterness. Artificial sweetner in aftertaste.

Bottles, as pictured, in various places in St. Lucia. I really enjoyed this beer...surprised to see it rated below Piton, which I found to be much worse. Pale yellow pour, obviously, white head. But it had a little bit of flavor that was lacking in the Piton. Not hoppy, not malty, but just a little mild hint of both along with the classic, you know, watery meh pale lager feel. I drank many of these on the beach, much preferred over both Heineken and Piton, which were my other options. Sad to see they use sugar in the brewing process, but I’ll let it slide.

Lore (1267) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 22, 2014
Pale yellow colour, almost no head at all; aroma of sweat and faeces; I was reluctant to taste first but finally I made the mistake and gave it a chance...horrible!

Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesey of Benzai. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of skunk, old stuff and dust. Flavor is light bitter, light carbonated and overall not that interesting.
