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.

Crisp and refreshing beer I had while in Aruba on my honeymoon. A great beer to session with before dinner and late into the evening while smoking cigars on the beach.

Dark Daughter, Emily, brought this back from a trip to Aruba for the fun of it. Nothing expected and nothing received from this pale, watery, dishwater drink. The islands are noted for their rum. Stick to that.

Can brought back by a newlywed. Clear pale yellow body under a foamy head. Wet bread and pseudo-saaz hops. Light flavor - watered down pale malt and light zippy stem hops. No flaws, really. Just a solid pale lager with hops you can actually detect.

Gift can. Smell of malt and starch. Golden colour, midsize white head. Aroma of hops, metal, grain. Rather dry hoppiness. Medium bitter.

Draft - This was a good drinking beer; perfect for the warm weather in Aruba. Very little hops but something about looking at white beaches and palm trees makes this beer taste better when you drink it.

Beer was skunked (it had a long trip). I don't want to pan it for that. Malty golden beer with low hop. Seems like an OK beach beer....

I found this beer to be totally forgettable. Thin, and barely worth the two bucks the cruise ship hawkers charged. I got it mainly because I didn’t have the cap in my collection. Bland. I’d rather drink water.

Balashi is the beer brewed in Aruba from sea water. While on an Indiana Furniture trip to Aruba Balashi was the beer to drink. It was served everywhere you went. It was refreshing in the windy 90 degree climate. There is a slight bitterness but very smooth. This not a beer with much complexity. It a fun beer to drink while sitting on the water’s edge soaking the sun. The bottles were mostly small less than 9 oz. It went quickly.

Draught: without the watery texture and flavour, this would not have been so thirst quenching and delicious on the luscious and fluffy, white sandy beach at the resort on my Honeymoon. Clear enough to transmit the intense aquamarine water color and an aroma that doesn’t mask the sweetly bitter salt water, this was a perfect treat on the hot beach just after lunch…

Pale amber/yellow. Thin dusty head. Odd grainy macro aroma, which actually turns me on after a few more sniffs. Fizzy cardboardy fruit. Kind of oddd... sweet and ricey or something
