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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 Drank this from the tap in the brewery in 2007, though made with filtered seawater not a sign of saltiness. Grain, rice, grassy hops, clear pale golden, minimal white head, sweetbitter, medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, light bitter finish, bit watery, rather smooth, great thirstquencher.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can
Aroma: A bit musty, salt, seaweed
Appearance: Clear straw/golden, bubbly with short lasting foamy white head
Taste: A bit of sweetness, no bitterness, some slight off-putting flavors in the finish
Palate: Although it appears highly carbonated in the glass, fairly flat, thin mouthfeel
Overall: For a pale lager, this isn’t too bad.

A fine lager from Aruba courtesy of GT. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aroma of corn, apple, plastic, and grain. The flavor is much the same. Quite bland and just mostly sweet. Grain, corn, and apple. A touch of plastic and water on the finish.

GT2 (8163) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Tap at various places in Aruba. Clear pee yellow. Weak white foam. No retention or lace. Nose is creamed corn, pineapple, something like diacetyl with browned butter and rancid dairy. Taste is papery, bland, some pineapple juice, creamed corn, slick diacetyl. Finishes surprisingly lactic like sour dough bread. Brewing flaws galore.

The look is clear, golden in color, and has a thin white head. The smell is corn, grains, floral, and cereal. The taste is floral, cereal, malts, and grass.

Pale and malty. Corn and grass. It’s ok for what it is but I much prefer a chill. Thank you, Aruba
