   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 10/20

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.

275ml bottle, thanx JS. Clear pale yellow with a thin, disappearing white head. Not much going on here, some malt aromas, light malt, corn flavors. Light bodied, attenuated finish. Drink it very cold on the beach.

Cold, this is crisp, slightly bitter and refreshing. As soon as it warms at all it becomes flat and insipid. Typical holiday lager really.

На пляже очень хорошо идет! Средний лагер но по цене 6 долларо& за 0.25 много не выпить

Appearance: Zillions of tiny bubbles appear in a light gold body and under a 3 finger snow white head. The color looks a little like ginger ale. Smell: Corn, cereal and a bit of lemon. No sign of being lightstruck thankfully despite it being in a clear bottle. Taste: Lemon rind with some faint corn and a slight grainy feel. A touch of tartness actually makes the taste surprisingly tolerable. Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated and prickly. Smooth with a mild bitterness. It is a bit watery but i’m surprised that it has some support to it. Drinkability: Better than most for the style. Quenches your thirst though the lack of depth in the flavor makes this a one-note affair Reviewed on: 01-02-2010

Can on January 28, 2017. Thanks to Brian FL (non ratebeer). BBE 12/17.
Clear golden color, white head. Malty, grainy, some cardboard, a hint fruity taste. Cardboard aftertaste. Cardboard, sweet scent. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.

SinH4 (6113) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 Bottle, thanks luttonm! Clear glowing yellow color with small white ring. Aroma is corn, papery, touch of cardboard, not too bad. Taste is corn, papery malts, a little little touch of fruit. Medium carbonation. Maybe drinkable-ish if really cold.

Recently have been enjoying much of this local brew in Saint Lucia, both bottled and on draft. When approached with the modest expectations of a standard Carribean pale lager, this brew does satisfy as a reasonably hopped and minimally-adjunct polluted thirst quencher that pairs great with plates of local seafood and views of Saint Lucia’s amazing tropical scenery and oceanfront vistas. Pours with a decent appearance, golden yellow and lots of fresh lacing to form a white soapy head. Aroma has some dank vegetal hops and bready grain, some industrial metallic off-notes, which precedes the flavor profile of pale malt, bread, grain, and some lesser-quality grassy hops. Not overly sweet and a slightly bitter finish, light bodied and drinkable. Decent overall, and although the beer alone may not be worth the trip, a visit to this beautiful island is still heartily recommended!

Pours a light clear gold with light white head and carbonation. A malty and grain aroma. A water down malt and grain taste with little other flavor. Only thing that makes a Piton better than a Miller is that the view includes the beach.

rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
Bottle thanks to Rick. Clear pale golden beer with almost no head. Malty papery cardboard aroma, bready, some fruits. Malty cardboard flavor, papery, some grapes.
