2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
