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.

Grumbo (875) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle brought back from Aruba by Lyn. Country #111. Pours a pale gold colour with small white head. Aroma was evident as cap was being removed, unusually so for a pale lager, fresh, hoppy, corn and grass. Light bitterness to taste, light body and typically thin texture, average carbonation, with short lasting bitterness to finish.

A perfect beach beer from Aruba. Very refreshing and hint of citrus taste. Nothing special about it. Perfectly refreshing when served cold though.

One of the better beach beers. It is what it is. Yellow lager, thin head, nothing discernible, but thirst quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ryanscourt (926) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Reminds me of a caribbean style beer, similar to el presidente. Sweet pilsner flavor with plenty of carbonation.

Lekker koud op zijn best in de warmte van Aruba. Simpel fris doordrink bier. Iets te zoet.

Ernest (6729) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Can (in Aruba airport). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cereal, grain, husks), with notes of DMS and egg white. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation. Another wretched tropical lager.

Pours golden out of can. Aromas of yeast and hay. Taste is malt and grains wit habit of hops. Clean finish.

vipinvelp (2837) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Pale yellow no foam left. Typical barley taste and aroma. Probably much better when drinking on s warm beach in country. (Arnhem 201502) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
