The beer has a deep golden color totally clear and transparent, with a bitterness which is soft to the tongue and nose however with an aroma of fresh hops, a short aftertaste and easy on foam. The combination of all feels fresh and smooth to the mouth when cold, perfect for Aruba's hot climate.

12 oz can from Barb as a gift from her trip - thanks! Lacks any real taste but might be good for a hot summer day on the islands.

Bottle as gift from a friend. Typical lager look, clear golden, medium white head. Aroma is rather skunky, malty and cardboard. Flavour is medium sweet, not much else. All the characteristics of a decent lager, but really nothing more.

(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.

Erzengel (6224) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2015
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.

Received can as a gift. Nothing much to say here, standard macro lager used on the beach. Same as any other
