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.

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)

Can brought back by a newlywed. Clear pale yellow body under a foamy head. Wet bread and pseudo-saaz hops. Light flavor - watered down pale malt and light zippy stem hops. No flaws, really. Just a solid pale lager with hops you can actually detect.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a thin gold body with no head. The aroma is light malt, light hops, sea air. The flavor is oddly not very bad. Plain Jane as can be but meets the style well. The palate is medium-light bodied, decent. Refreshing. A good example of a pale lager.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Pale amber/yellow. Thin dusty head. Odd grainy macro aroma, which actually turns me on after a few more sniffs. Fizzy cardboardy fruit. Kind of oddd... sweet and ricey or something

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Pours a clear off yellow color and a fluffy white well laced head. Smells bad! Stale grain, touches of cardboard, and a light grass hop. Palate is very thin. Flavor is not aweful as I expected... its very light kinda grainy with hints of sweet malts and a tiny touch of hop Very easy to drink if I plug my nose.

Not much head; goes down easy on the beach. Light tasting, inoffensive taste lingers, inoffensively.

Many of the carib lagers are quite similar to each other...light in flavor, not overbearing on the palate, and enjoyable in the hot sun on palm beach. A refreshing light drink that does not repeat later at night.

Had this on on draught on de Palm Island, Aruba. Medium yellow color with a medium white bubbly head, A fairly standard lager without a whole lot going on, satisfactorily drinkable on a hot day on the beach. Not bad.

While in Aruba I had many of these. I really enjoyed drinking them. Light and very drinkable beer...especially on a hot day in the hot Aruban sun. A definite must try if you go to Palm Beach!
