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.

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!

Draught: without the watery texture and flavour, this would not have been so thirst quenching and delicious on the luscious and fluffy, white sandy beach at the resort on my Honeymoon. Clear enough to transmit the intense aquamarine water color and an aroma that doesn’t mask the sweetly bitter salt water, this was a perfect treat on the hot beach just after lunch…

Pretty good beer. Fond memories of Aruba attached to this beer. I even have a Balashi coaster which i love. Standard pils/lager with some sweet cornish hints. Not a lot of complexity. Watery finish without a bitter slighty skunky aftertaste.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2005
This was actually a surprise from the standpoint that it wasn’t disgusting ... and it was actually a hair better than most Dutch exports upon which it’s based. This poured like the Euro pils it is; a big airy head over a corn-starchy aroma. But the flavor is clean and malty-crisp with a fruit syrup finish. Not too bad.

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2005
Golden colour with freakishly large bubbles. Fairly grassy aroma with hints of malt and grain. Watery body is bready-corn syrupy sweet with grassy top notes. Light, uninteresting, but drinkable.

robpet (98) - Stone Mountain, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Nothing spectacular here, but surprisingly good for what you might expect on a small island off the coast of SA. Light flavor, but very clean. Slight hops finish. Perfect for the hot sun.

skortila (4347) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2004
Another beer for in the hot sun. Watery, sweet and just slightly hoppu. Clear, pale yellow/golden colour with a white head. Not really interesting in this cold country.
