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.

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

Can. Ok, for a lager this wasn’t to bad, that’s why I have a higher rating. Refreshing on a hot summer day.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall not a bad beer, but without going back to aruba I dont intend to drink any elsewhere. Clearish, bland macro beer taste, but it was great on the warm beach.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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?

2.8 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.
