1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

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?

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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)

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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
