3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on on draught on de Palm Island, Aruba. Medium yellow color with a medium white bubbly head, A fairly standard lager without a whole lot going on, satisfactorily drinkable on a hot day on the beach. Not bad.

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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
~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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

bottle. Poured clear straw coloured with a small white head. Light dry hoppy aroma. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Grainy corn flavour with a hint of granny smith apples. Finishes a little metallic.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.
