Had this in St Martin.

Very light crystal clear pilsner

Light malty aroma, little macro lager, bit of mineral sulfury like note, hint skunky but not much, toasted pilsner lager, not bad. Grassy skunky bitterness like old hops.

Straw yellow, with a minimal head. This brew was a hit on the boat. Won't 'wow' you with its complexity, but for its style it's less forgetable than the competetion. I actually enjoyed pairing this our low country boil. Less metallic off flavors that you find in AB adjuncts.

This beer is proof to me that it don't matter a lick what bread tastes like when it's a gorgeous 85 degrees and nothing but he gorgeous Caribbean Sea before you. Cheerio, cheerio, I'd drink this any day and recommend it gladly!

Drank many from an all inclusive resort in St. Thomas, They were cold and I was relaxing by a pool and beach so by default this beer was excellent.

We had a nice day in St.Kitts, where they make this. In spite of drinking a few of these and variants of it.

It is a typical light yellow and big-bubbled It is not very aromatic. The taste is boring. Slightly sweet.

It is refreshing and easy to drink. The price is usually pretty low. If you are finding this beer, most likely you also won't be finding many alternatives. Suck it up and enjoy the sun and the waves.

Pours a clear yellow gold with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied, normal amount of carbonation. Sweet finish.

Very watery. Similar to corona without the taste. Known in trinidad as a girls beer.

A really lackluster beer. Essentially a slightly smoother version of rolling rock, coors light, or any cheap, light lager. Not bad for what it is, just not anything special.

Nothing more than a light beer to be slurped down on a beach.

A light lager that has a little bit of bitter after taste. Something like the typical american light beer with the added bitter taste. Worth trying once or when in Rome!
