Pale gold (4) pour with almost no/thin white head; no cap or lace to speak of; excellent clarity. Lite citrus and Corn Pops nose. Flavors of corn, lemon, lime, and cracker. Watery light mouthfeel, moderate minus carbonation. Overall, it tastes like a Corona Light with a lime in it.

Brought back as a gift by a friend. Pours a very pale and very clear golden beer with no head retention. Aromas of hints of grain. Tastes of malty, grass, grain & vegetables with a moderate sweet aftertaste with mild bitterness. Overall a pretty standard Caribbean beer, which no doubt would taste much better on the islands.

Not sure why BA is saying this is no longer brewed when it's still kicking strong down on the little island of Saint Vincent.
It's alright. If there is nothing else.

Color: light tan straw / yellow
Not too hoppy but has more carbonation than I expected.
This one you can drink as easy as water, because it is a pretty watered down beer.

It's small island - and it's dirt cheap. The alternative is drinking Corona, Guinness, Heineken like the locals like to do... but you're probably in Saint Vincent on a boating trip, so don't bother with the stuff you can get back home. Since your stop in Saint Vincent should just be a short one (for your own safety) just buy a few crates of this, put the bottles on ice, and drink a few cold ones on your trip down to the Tobago Cays or Grenada.

I got this as part of a raffle prize from the Lancaster County Brewers March '11 meeting. Poured chilled from the green 7oz into a tulip.

A very clear golden straw with fluffy yet quick receding head of white . The lace is there and retention is decent. The carbonation is visible and rises rapidly. A mild sweet malt scent with lots of adjunct in the aroma, mild yeast ester with slight bready tinge. The feel is good with some mild sweetness and gentle dry elements in the finish with moderately high carbonation.

The taste has some mild fruit tinges and gentle yeast flavor with mild spice, the malt is light in sweetness with subtle adjunct elements. I enjoyed this overall and it is a shame they put this out to pasture since it would make a good lawnmower beer. It is not heavy on the malt or hop flavor, but what it has is pleasant I was wishing it came in a bigger bottle, the 7 oz was gone quickly.

280ml green bottle with a "birthday" of 1/2/07 stamped on the bottle. The label states it won a gold medal in Brussels in 1993. Pours a very light straw yellow with a small quickly fading head but OK lacing. Smells of macroness abound. Lots of the rice smells but also decent honey like malts as well as some low level hops. Watery, watery, watery. Its even more watery than the BMC lite beers. It has some flavors and I'm sure its great if I'm sitting on the beach in St Vincent, but IMHO it is just too damn watery, surprising since its stated ABV is 4.8% As a macro it is below average. On the upside you could drink a ton of these.
