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.

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

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.

Bottle, in Castries, St Lucia. Pale golden colour, white head you know the drill. Not much to say here. Refreshing beer without major flaws. Works well here.

Honestly, I’m surprised at this tropic lager. Many of them come out quite terrible. This one isn’t great. Pours a clear golden with small head and mild lacing. Malt forward toasted hops with a hint of sweet and hint of bitter. Decently well rounded. short sweet finish.

Take St. Lucia off my list. Friend brought it back from a cruise to the Caribbean. Similar to almost all of the other Caribbean lagers. Nothing offensive here. Taste was like cardboard smell was of adjuncts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for sharing! Smooth grainy beginning. Hints of grainy sweetness, not much depth. Refreshing with a slightly grainy body. No bitterness and easy to drink.

On tap at Saint James Club Morgan Bay. Pale yellow gold color . Brief white head disapates quickly. Flavor is grainy malt and light in body. Some bitterness in finish. The hotter the temp is at the pool, the better this tastes. Overall, this is just another Caribbean lager swill that keeps you from dying of thirst.

In bottle and tap in St Lucia .. not a good beer at all. Quite light, skunky and no real flavor at all ... I would not recommend this beer, or drink it again myself

Tastes like paper with some skunk. Luckily I didn’t have to drink much of this at the tasting as Travlr, who provided the beer in the first place, stole my glass partway through. Cheers to you sir!

Bottle @ travlr’s. Light gold with a small head. Nose is pissy and awful. Ass juice. Taste is what I’d imagine a piton tastes like. Lemon and cardboard skunkiness. Freezing cold, this wouldn’t be terrible as a beach beer. Light body, very strong carb.

Bottles all over St. Lucia. Pale yellow pour from the clear glass bottle. Kinda flavorless. Nice and refreshing on a hot day but not much to it otherwise. I’d drink it again but wouldn’t go out of my way to seek it out.

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.

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.

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.

Small bottle drank at 10:30 in the morning of 6th March 2014 outside a little shack bar just north of Rodney Bay. I wasn’t going to have a beer, but at 2% ABV I figured it didn’t count as a real drink. Very shandy like in nature, half beer, half lemonade, which is most likely what it actually is. Refreshing enough but not really my thing, plenty of lemon flavours if that floats your boat. Gives me a second tick from the brewery I suppose, otherwise it was a complete waste of money.

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

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.
