You expect a little less from the island lagers, mostly something drinkable to sip while on vacation. Gold color. Crisp, refreshing taste with hoppy finish, good in tropical climate of the Caribbean. Goes well with cod fish fritters, which are a staple of the island.

Bottle courtesy of my friend. Citrusy, quite refreshing. Some skunk in the taste department, probably from the clear bottle. Also detected some corn, typical of the adjunct lager style. Overall I would probably have this again, just have to get down to St. Lucia to score some more.

Let's be honest, you're drinking this if you are on vacation and if you're lucky to be doing that in St. Lucia - they you deserve crates of this. It's cheap, refreshing, and can throw back a dozen before you realize you have. But hey! It doesn't matter. You're drinking this in St Lucia.

Yellow gold color. Clean. Smooth. Best (like any beer) when it is served Ice Cold!
Good at 8am, at 12pm, and at 6pm, at 2am, and at 8am again.

The guys at the brewery are proud of their work and they work hard at what they do - which is nice to see considering it's a small island.

Side note: they also brew one with Lemon "Piton Lemon" (2.5% content). Be a man and just stick with the original.
