Cakes (348) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
12 oz Bottl e Had this at a seaside bar with the locals waiting out a brief shower in St. Lucia, at a stopover on a Carnival Cruise. Bright golden beer with lots of bubbles. A small head dissipates fast. Sweet grainy inoffensive aroma. Fizzy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Sweet but finishes neat and clean with good crispness. Best chilled. Unexpectedly good, better than most macrobeer US lagers, or Mexican ones for that matter.

Flaska på restaurant i Castries, St Lucia. Hälls upp guldfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. Blaskig i både doft och smak, där gräs och majs är det enda som märks av. Kolsyrig munkänsla. Men ett nytt land blev det i alla fall.

"Slightly beery" is the way to describe this offering. On draft in St Lucia hotels and in bottle in the airport at the bar. Very pale, reasonable effervescence, almost nothing on the nose and very cold. Insigniificant bitterness. Draft was served in small plastic glasses. On draft and in bottle it had little flavor with no outstanding features. All in all a disappointment as it is really the only offering on the island of St Lucia.

Meh... I really can’t say this is an appalling beer, I’ve tasted a lot worse but it really doesn’t have much going for it other than the refreshing qualities that you find in most lagers if served ice cold. A little sharper and slightly more sour than some although the hop rate is still quite low. On the other hand if St. Lucia had great beer then it really would have too much going for it for one little island.

SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle: Poured a golden with thin white head. Aroma was a little slinky cardboard. Taste was mild to sour grain, very thin and wet. Smooth finish.

Thanks Lauren for the st lucia tick. Initially a blast of sweetness. Taste is sweet grain maybe some corn. Pretty regular lager.

A pretty bad beer. It doesn't quite make it to a spot on my "beers so bad, they're good" list. Was almost like Bud Light in every way. Another country off of my list. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another pale yellow Caribbean beer that goal is not flavor but rather to be refreshing when served cold on a beach in St. Lucia
