2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Balashi) Small bottle shared by vipinvelp at home, thanks! New country tick.
Golden pale in colour with a small white head, low retention and minimal lacing left behind.
Aroma of adjuncts, can’t really tell what, some dirty hay.
Taste of maltose, sweet, with hay and dried grass.
Medium thin body, average carbonation, quite dry though.
Well, probably tastes better in an Aruba beach.

Pours a golden yellow color with a sweet malt aroma. Taste is malt, corn, and a light sweetness. A dry finish with little aftertaste. Thank you Willie Veloz for bringing me this beer direct from his vaction in Aruba.

Many thanks to kevnic2008 for sharing. Golden colour with a grainy-malty nose. The beer starts neutral-grainy, malty-sweetish and a bit more intense than the "Balashi Chill". Malty-grain is dominating the quite watery picture with hints of a malty sweetness. Easy drinkable and very refreshing. Nearly no bitterness in the end. Nice for what it wants to be.

I went in vacation in Aruba and Balashi was about all there was beer wise to drink. It is a lot like Heineken that has been watered down with Schlitz.

Nice golden color with a disappearing white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet, like corn. Flavor is sweet and grassy. Watery body and no end.
