Pours a light yellow color with a faint corn aroma. Taste is light, dry, no true distinct flavor except for light corn. A bland light beer.

Many thanks to kevnic2008 for sharing. Grainy nose and pale colour in the glass. The beer starts neutral with hints of a sweetish sourness. Grain, refreshing with a malty sweetness, that remains until the slightly grainy finish. No bitterness there. Smooth and sweetish-neutral aftertaste.

Easy light beer. Not one of those that stays with you for years, but the one that kills your thirst immediately on the Arubean beach on a hot day.

Ernest (6727) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle (in Aruba airport). Head is initially very small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain, husks), with a note of DMS. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation. Yet another weak, shitty tropical lager.

Location: Tried this from a number of cans in Aruba both poured into a glass and straight from the can, 9/16/14

Aroma: The aroma is light and fruity, kind of papery too, otherwise, similar to Balashi
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow color with a small, fizzy head that doesn’t leave much lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, a little fruity, with some corn and paper
Palate: The body is light, it is easy drinking, with a very thin finish
Overall Impression: It’s not a good beer, but it drinks alright in a pool or on a beach. It is definitely a different beer than Balashi, but not necessarily better or worse.

A thouroughly boring and partly undrinkable beer. Bought this along side the much supperior Balashi. Very watery and Carona-like.

Had this on Aruba. There was not much of a head and no lacing. There was a weak aroma and the taste of various grasses.
