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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
"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 canít say this is an appalling beer, Iíve tasted a lot worse but it really doesnít 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.

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.

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

12oz bottle from Sandals St. Lucian, St. Lucia. The bud light of the carribean is all I can say about this beer. Itís not too bad when you are this close to the equator.
