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

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

Clear, yellow, thin head and lace. Nose of pale grainy malt and a bit of adjuncts. Light bodied, water texture, a bit of malt development thats nice, bit of a lemony twang that was suprising and pleasant. Slight bitterness. Best green bottled little island beer I ever had.

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.

Courtesy of Oscbert. Pours a clear light gold with a small white layer of foam. Aroma is mostly of hay, grass, not much else. Flavor repeats with hay and finishes with a little sweetness. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Upper-medium carbonation. Overall, fair plus.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale straw color with a bright white head. Grainy, fruity aromas, well carbonated, not much hops. Refreshing, but kind of thin. Had on tap and brought a bottle back. Seemed to taste better on the beach, but what doesn’t?

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 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.

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.

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!
