This beer is not bad and itís cheap. Tastes like what would happen if you mixed Amber Bock and Killianís together, and I always thought that this was just Amber Bock with a private label for Bahama Breeze.

On tap at the Bahma Breeze in Raleigh North Carolina. Was a nice brew that was a deep reddish color with little to no head. Flavor is a bit malty and sour but all in al a great brew.

Had this one on tap at Bahama Breeze. Aroma is not very tantalizing, mostly malt and it has an almost stale quality to it. The color is nice, though, a deep reddish amber. Flavor is like a half-assed knockoff of Killians, malty and mildly sweet with a slight sour aftertaste. On the upside, it was incredibly cheap.

In the words of Lars Ulrich from the NAPSTER BAD! CARTOON SERIES, "ARUBA, BAAAAAAD!" It has the Killian redness that is distictive to that brew, but boy, it fails every other category. It doesn't exit well and it leaves a stingy aftertaste. What do you expect when 32 oz. is sold for $2.00? Even more, what does Bahama Breeze know about beer?

This is not the best house brew, it's true. One can tell the ingredients are not of the highest quality from the taste. It has a stubborn almost cardboard-like taste ingrained in it with which one can only after much numbing alcohol ignore. It is all right - and better than most light beers at Bahama Breeze if not all, but I find it lamentable that Bahama Breeze will probably never have Killian's - a better brew - on tap just because of Aruba Red, the Bahama Breeze beer of questionable quality and dubious origins (e.g. see the 'Legend of Aruba Red' at your local Bahama Breeze).

i had a sip of this also at the bahama breeze restaurant in the chicago area. not the best house brew i tasted. after i tried a few sips from my dadís i went to hatuey beer which had a much better taste to it. the aruba red had a very nice aroma to it though but a very bad taste to it. it didnít even sit well on the palate it was very harsh going down.

I was all excited to try this beer specially brewed for this resturant. Bahama Breeze is a nice caribbean upscale resturant with some really inventive fusion cuisine, so Iím expecting their house beer to be as great as their food. Well, guess again. This beer was pretty red, pretty plain and pretty bad I choked down one and switched back to something less noisome. Oh well. Lots better than Red lobsterís red claw crap.
