COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Huge, just yellow-coloured, very dense head fed by heavy carbonated yellow-golden beer. Herbal, dry and quite grassy. Slightly milky nose as well, milk-ripe grain, maybe. Not bad. Dry, nearly spicey, slightly grassy pilsener. Unfortunately a bitterness, that is totally metallic, comes up, and supersedes most else. Quite watery, light. Aftertaste is still this unfortunate metallic. Started off quite promising. Too bad about the finish. Thanks, Dean!

236ml can. Pale body with thin white head. Almost no aroma at all. Flavor is slightly bitter, some kind of sourish (a little hint of apple juice) and a hint of bitterness. Palate is watery. No aftertaste to talk about, just a little metallic feeling. A very typical mainstream lager.

I found this beer to be totally forgettable. Thin, and barely worth the two bucks the cruise ship hawkers charged. I got it mainly because I didn’t have the cap in my collection. Bland. I’d rather drink water.

I’m guessing thanks to fezmonkey for this, from the snafu raffle ;) pours with a decent looking head which soon fades, typical macro pale lager but something strange in the flavor i can’t quite place. decent, but i wouldn’t wanna drink it regularly.. unless i were in aruba.

A powerful, yet inconsistent aroma, with a fruity character. The beer is pale with a light head, and its flavor is predominantly bitter, with a light, sour effect. It was lively with a medium body and retained its bitterness in the finish. Overall, not a very impressive beer, but one that I enjoyed in Aruba, and would certainly sample again on a return visit.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma is straw and light malts. Taste is not terrible for a pale lager. There is a little hop bitterness in there. It was great on the beach.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pale straw color with a bright white head. Grainy, fruity aromas, well carbonated, not much hops. Refreshing, but kind of thin. Had on tap and brought a bottle back. Seemed to taste better on the beach, but what doesn’t?

Golden-yellowish with a stale smelling aroma. Not overly distinctive to initial taste, but found myself enjoying it as much for the reminders of Aruba as for the taste itself

Can, 0.236ltr. Pale golden beer with a small white head. Light fruity aroma, quite weak, with apples and hops. Fruity flavor with malt and some apples. A bit thin body, with a slightly metallic finish. I guess this works best on the beach. (060530)
