2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can - thanks to DeEtta for this one (for putting up with Mike stuffing his suitcase with shitty local beers). Pours very light golden with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates almost immediately with a bit of lacing. Aroma of grain, corn syrup. Flavor is light to medium sweet, light grassy bitter finish. Not bad for a pale lager.

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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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
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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
250 ml bottle purchased by durwoodx, shared by Huhzubendah. Thanks guys! Pours a clear light golden color with lasting thin head and slight sudsy lacing. Aroma is mild and sweet: corn, yeast, bread. Flavor is mild - honey, corn and light vegetal grassiness. Not terrible, looking forward to something more palatable.

Thanks to Darrell for bringing this back from Aruba for me. The beer is light golden and clear with virtually no head. Sweet corn, malt, adjuncts aroma. Sweet and cloying. Good thing it comes in a small bottle. Syrupy yet light on the palate. Artificial sweetness. A beer for the masses to be consumed at the beach. A fun tick, but that’s about it.

Very nice sweet beer which has to be drunk with a slice of citron. This will bring up the flavor perfectly.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Smell of straw. Pale golden colour, high white head. Aroma of straw, grain, metal, rubber. Slightly bitter. Lively carbon. Rather gross.
