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

Can brought back by a friend from Aruba. Very smooth and easy session. Great for the beach. Reminds me of Heineken

I have very fond memories involving this beer since quite a few were consumed at our wedding and honeymoon in Aruba, but take that away and I find very little else about it appealing. There’s a very strong, skunky scent and the taste is malty in a watery, cheap way. Beautiful island, though!

Can - brought back from Aruba by Mike B - thanks!. Pours pale yellow with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is grain, cardboard, corn syrup, hay. Flavor is about the same. Pretty much right down the middle of the Pale Lager fairway.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can courtesy of blankboy - thanks, Paul! Clear bright yellow-gold with a thin wisp of head. Aroma of corn husk, toasted grain & dried grass. Body is clean and crisp with a nice level of carbonation. Flavour is also quite clean, with toasted cereal, a hint of honey, and grassy hops in the finish. Not to my taste, but fine enough for what it is - and if I was in Aruba, I’d have no problem drinking a bunch of ’em.

Had about 50 of these in Aruba, it is their local beer so just drinking local. Decent beer? Slightly skunky taste unless it was super cold. Typical lager compares to red stripe in my opinion

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Gold with small white head. Sweet corn malt on the nose. Tastes like, well...a carribean lager (most taste pretty similar to me). Sweet corn, grassy hops...not much else. I suppose this would be nice on a beach in Aruba but otherwise, just a sweet boring lager.

Bottle thanks to tderoeck. Nose is musky and metallic. Light watery gold with small white head. Taste is metallic, starting sweet and going to slightly bitter. Has something harsh on the palate, and is over carbonated. Bleh...

22 cl. bottle shared / thx to Tderoeck – crystal clear golden, smell & taste is lots of sweet corn syrup, skunky, old vegetables, old hay, synthetic hops in aftertaste, old hay, very slightly better in an unimportant way than the Chill version
