2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s tough to give this beer a bad rating especially since I feel I have grow to love this Aruba brew. This is a crisp clean beer that has a slightly bitter flavor. Palate is not terrific, but the smooth taste in a hot Aruba day is. The one issue with this beer is that it must be near freezing temperatures to really taste good, otherwise it is crap. Enjoy.

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.

Had one in aruba ( of course ) on honeymoon. It’s a caribbean lager, slightly darker and more bitter than I would have expected. Every beer within a hundred mile tastes about the same. Viva aruba!

Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma is straw and light malts. Taste is not terrible for a pale lager. There is a little hop bitterness in there. It was great on the beach.

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

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden yellow with some bubbles and small head. Aroma is minimal. Light body. Crisp and sort of refreshing, the slightest amount of bitterness and brief off-dry finish. Unobjectionable, but I would move along folks, because there’s nothing to see here.

Bottled, thanks Omhper. Clear golen. Aroma is as can be expected except it has an odd sweetness to it.. like honey-drops (the candy). This beer makes me wish I was in Aruba instead.

Drank this from the tap in the brewery in 2007, though made with filtered seawater not a sign of slatiness. 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.

Golden-yellowish with a stale smelling aroma. Not overly distinctive to initial taste, but found myself enjoying it as much for the reminders of Aruba as for the taste itself
