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.

Bottled (thanks omhper!). Golden colour, with small sparkling bubbly head. Aroma is rather sweet with some malts, hay, cardboard and maize. Flavour is about the same with some bigtime grassyness lurking in the background.

Bottled, thanks jjpm74! Pale golden with brief head. Sweet and fruity. Some very light grassy hops tries to cover a rather mushy and fruity body. Low bitterness. A simple tropical lager.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2006
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)

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.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2005
Golden colour with freakishly large bubbles. Fairly grassy aroma with hints of malt and grain. Watery body is bready-corn syrupy sweet with grassy top notes. Light, uninteresting, but drinkable.
