Cakes (363) - 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.

Small clear glass bottle given to me by Ed5388, thanks buddy. Poured a clear medium density birght yellow body with a small to avergae quick fading fizzy bright white head. Aroma is skunk, grain, cereal and dry bread. Flavor is sort of flat, luckily the skunk is contained to the aroma and doesn’t come through, touch of old sweeter dough, dry grains and some lightt toast. Meh, flavor better than aroma at least.

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold...minimal whte head. Light honey/grain malt scent. Flavour of corn, grain malts. Light....actually a hint of spicy hops. Really pretty decent.....not a bad pick for a day on the sand.

Bottle (courtesy of my brother and his lovely wife - hopefully they continue taking cruises). Tinny barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Lightly sweet lemon, barley malt and hay flavor. Not a bad pale lager.

BOSSbrewer (1683) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle at porch nite thanks to Raith. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Slight corn aroma. No malt. Fairly sweet corn and not much else in the flavor. Very thin and light bodied. Drinkable but not much else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle in St. Lucia. Very very pale with a thin white head. Tiny malt aroma. Body is ultra light and no real malt flavors at all.

ciaranc (917) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 29, 2014
Draught at Grand Pineapple, Antigua. Pale yellow Caribbean lager, yellow, fizzy, decent white head. Not much aroma, grainy notes. Taste is a nice dry malt. Watery, fizzy, short finish. Entirely inoffensive, works well in the 30 degree heat.

Drinkable. Clean. Pale lager. Akin to a carona, though not the big market. Lime would add flavor i guess.

mzaar (1640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
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.

MoleyBub (5) - Alabama, USA - MAR 4, 2014 does not count
"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.

Vladivostok (250) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
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.
