2.35/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Got this while I was honeymooning in St. Lucia.

A: Pours a relatively clear, straw yellow body with a small, white head with decent retention and even some lacing until the finish.

S: An interesting blend of some barley and adjuncts. A strong corn and rice smell some through. A slight earthiness is evident, reminding me a bit of how Heineken smells, but with some sweeter notes.

T: Not much of a taste to this one. Slight bread and rice notes are evident, but are more evident in the aftertaste. Seems like the beer is watered down a little bit.

M: A light and surprisingly refreshing mouthfeel despite the fairly bland and bready tasting beer. A decent mouthfeel for the hot, humid climate that is typical of the region.

D: A mouthfeel and taste that, I guess, is built for the region. Fairly depressing what they have done with this beer or haven't really expanded too far with the beer styles, especially since they are a good source of pure cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, and other spices and oils. I guess if I ever go back to St. Lucia, I'd have to give their Shandy a go; that's something I would hope would be made of ingredients from the island itself.

The best thing about this brew should be pretty obvious - you are probably going to be drinking it in the shadow of the Pitons (I was). St. Lucia is a drop dead gorgeous place that I think I could fall in love with. The people are nice without being overly so.

The beer, on the other hand, is not great. It looks, smells and tastes like a medium grade American crappy lager. There isn't anything distinguished about the brew.

It is well made with no major flaws, but it is uninteresting. It is nice to have one for refreshment while enjoying the amazing beauty of this island. I bought a Piton Beer t-shirt!

The first of three beers brought back to me from the Caribbean.

Pours a very clear gold. No head. Nose is malty sweet. Flavor is much of the same. Smooth and consistent and I don't really get any aftertaste or wavering from the way things start off. The body is much thicker than I would have expected. A nice drinking beer and more interesting than I was anticipating.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

10 oz bottle

Pours light clear golden with dissipating white suds.

Coppery malt aroma with sugar adjunct and a light pilsner hoppiness.

Light sugary malt flavor with a mild hoppy bite.

Thin body with a sting of carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

An average lighter lager, nothing special. Have it because its cheap and cold. Otherwise, probably the least interesting of the Caribbean beers I have tried.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A- Deep golden colored body, virtually no head, just some clear fizzy bubbles on top.

S- Bready yeast that smells slightly sour, some sweet honey-like aroma as well.

T- Really lot a whole lot going on, really like any pale light lager.

M- Slightly fizzy, very light bodied, but drinkable.

O- It's an island beer and serviceable for drinking on a beach, but nothing great.

275 ml. pry off bottle poured into a glass mug. Shows a golden straw, clear with a thin cap which offers average retention and lace for the style.

Nose is grainy of pale malts and perhaps a light corn adjunct. Hops are light and Noble in character but certainly present to a degree.

Decent flavor, light and neutral perhaps but pleasant. Not quite as interesting as Banks Lager but a decent drink on St. Lucia.
