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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Drank on one of the most beautiful beaches, Palm Beach Aruba. I think this beer smells like Heineken , looks like and tastes like it ,just comes in a little smaller bottle. This beer is skunky, typical green bottle type beer.

As the only beer mass brewed in Aruba, Balashi is a drinkable light pale lager. Nice color, and watery taste makes this a decent beer to drink while lying on the beach in the sun!
