2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Had this beer in Aruba when I visited a few years back, and I just found my notes. Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head. Aromas of weak malt and hay; pretty much a standard lager aroma. Flavor isn’t anything special either; weak malt, slight bitterness, and grass. But man, is this refreshing during an Aruba summer! A very efficient way to beat the heat, since it is more or less like water. Honestly, not bad at all.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Backlog. Drank this from the tap in the brewery in 2006, though made with filtered seawater not a sign of saltiness. Grain, rice, grassy hops, clear pale golden, minimal white head, sweetbitter, medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, light bitter finish, bit watery, rather smooth, great thirstquencher.

~Scent of spicy saaz hops, some sourness and wet straw.
~Pours a very clear gold color with small diminishing white head.
~Saaz hop flavor with sour malty hay... taste much sweeter and better at the brewery.
~Light bodied, med to high carbonation, spicy bitter finish.
~Excellent Pilsner. Refreshing brew. Great for a hot day at the beach. If you can get it straight from the brewery tap. Taste much better than at a bar or resturants tap.

Can in Aruba. Light gold with quickly fading head. Sweet bread / cereal with leaves. Strong carbonation for the body but it goes well with the climate. Finish starts sweet but end with bitterness. Not bad.

A gift from my boss on a recent trip to Aruba. Thanks Chuck! Pours out a typical yellow color with a huge quick disappearing head. Aroma had some corn, sugar and hops to it. Taste was rather refreshing with a crisp bitter finish. Over all a nice brew.

An ok drinker. This was brought back by a friend from her honeymoon for me! Typical pale lager. Maybe a little light. I had this from a can.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A powerful, yet inconsistent aroma, with a fruity character. The beer is pale with a light head, and its flavor is predominantly bitter, with a light, sour effect. It was lively with a medium body and retained its bitterness in the finish. Overall, not a very impressive beer, but one that I enjoyed in Aruba, and would certainly sample again on a return visit.

Bottle. Pours a clear very pale golden with a small white head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of light pilsner malt, hay, and a hint of floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and crisp finish. Not Bad.

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