Overall not a bad beer, but without going back to aruba I dont intend to drink any elsewhere. Clearish, bland macro beer taste, but it was great on the warm beach.

Clear and crisp with nice carbonation. My brother brought some back from Aruba and this was pretty good - even canned. I’ve had a number of European pilsners which suffered in comparison.

Clear yellow color, thin white head, medium carbonation. Aroma is light hoppy, some malts. Taste is moderately bitter and a bit sweet, slightly salty, though nice balance. Bit dry palate, but still refreshing. Very decent lager.

Draft - This was a good drinking beer; perfect for the warm weather in Aruba. Very little hops but something about looking at white beaches and palm trees makes this beer taste better when you drink it.

Nice crisp clear beer. The bottle I tried was skunked though. Low hop. Some malt. It would have been good if it wasn't skunked. Good summer beer.

Beer was skunked (it had a long trip). I don't want to pan it for that. Malty golden beer with low hop. Seems like an OK beach beer....

Drank on one of the most beautiful beaches, Palm Beach Aruba. I think this beer smells like Heineken , looks like and tastes like it ,just comes in a little smaller bottle. This beer is skunky, typical green bottle type beer.

Aruba is hot, so the lightness of this beer is a nice welcome. Plus it is free in all of the casinos and it is hard to say too many bad things about something that is free.

Clear, yellow, thin head and lace. Nose of pale grainy malt and a bit of adjuncts. Light bodied, water texture, a bit of malt development thats nice, bit of a lemony twang that was suprising and pleasant. Slight bitterness. Best green bottled little island beer I ever had.

Maybe I like this beer because it’s pretty much the only beer you can get in Aruba, and the weather would make natty light taste good. Not far from water, Little hoppy, a little color, a little fizzy, a little malty. Like Red Stripe and Zambezi, think of what you want your beer to be like if you lived in the desert.
