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.

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.

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

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2008
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.

Reminds me of a caribbean style beer, similar to el presidente. Sweet pilsner flavor with plenty of carbonation.

vikingguy (933) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
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.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained not much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear yellow and a sweet water taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a light malty touch . This beer smells malty.

Grumbo (883) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
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.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Can. Ok, for a lager this wasn’t to bad, that’s why I have a higher rating. Refreshing on a hot summer day.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can
Aroma: A bit musty, salt, seaweed
Appearance: Clear straw/golden, bubbly with short lasting foamy white head
Taste: A bit of sweetness, no bitterness, some slight off-putting flavors in the finish
Palate: Although it appears highly carbonated in the glass, fairly flat, thin mouthfeel
Overall: For a pale lager, this isn’t too bad.
