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.

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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
250mL clear bottle ubiquitous in Aruba. What the f*** is up with these ridiculous beer bottle sizes. R u serious? Clear straw pour. No head formation. Pineapple, paper, lemon nose. Taste is inoffensive, pineapple, yellow apple. Seltzer palate. Like Amstel Bright. Not much there to hate on.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refrigerated 0.22 cl clear bottle. Clear pale golden, light body, low carbonation, white head. Taste is clean light malt. Refreshing and better than most light beers in my book. Surprising not skunky.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Much better than the namesake brew. Aroma lacks more than just pale malt and citrus. Taste is refreshing, excellent for a sunny cloudless day on a pier in the Caribbean

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Borderline undrinkable. Vaguely Corona-like, with the added tastes of rusty metal and corn syrup! Mmm!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Clear yellow golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, grains, grass. Faint, flat, uninteresting. Low body and carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light gold with small white head. Aroma of sweet corny malt and some sourness. Taste - much like the smell, corn flakes, grassy malt, a touch of caramel and some funk. Poor.
