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

Reminds me of a caribbean style beer, similar to el presidente. Sweet pilsner flavor with plenty of carbonation.

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.

Got this on Aruba. There is a faint sweet smell with grasses. There is no lacing and the brew is clear the taste is unremarkable.

Aruba beer. Do a little dance. Make a little love. Get down tonight. The beer comes in this cute little bottle that looks like it should be served on airplanes by those arrogant pricks that fake smile at you and ask if you would like a snack, knowing full well that six peanuts and a shitty processed sugar cookie is only herding you toward numb obedience and an inevitable slow and miserable death. Like I said, small bottle.
Sweet smelling. Adjuncts, corn, cigarettes on the beach, middle age chics acting like they don’t regret that tattoo they got back when they used to maybe be sexy, but now their gunts cover up the ridiculous rhinestones on their bikini bottoms that stopped fitting after they had their third ill-advised child with some GED toting douche bag who rides a motorcycle to Buffalo Wild Wings so he can try and beat his low life middle age peers in bar trivia, where questions like "Chief Suggam Bagadix surrendered his manhood in which battle?" get the night shift crowd all hot and bothered.
I would like to visit Aruba someday.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
250 ml bottle purchased by durwoodx and shared by huhzubendah. Thanks guys! Pours a clear light yellow color with a few tiny bubbles masquerading as head. Active carbonation has bubbles ascending from the base of the glass. Aroma is mild with light citrus, corn and an unpleasant yeasty note. Flavor has several different things happening at once, none of which are positive. Corn, a certain sourness, and a chalky paper-like unpalatable aspect tie it all together. A drain pour.
