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.

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?

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.

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!

Got this on Aruba. There is a faint sweet smell with grasses. There is no lacing and the brew is clear the taste is unremarkable.

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.

You know what? This beer is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, it suprised me. Aroma is nothing to speak of a bit of funk and skunk. Taste however is nicely hoppy of Sazz, mouthfeel fuller than I expected and carbonation about perfect. Finish is clean and crisp.

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.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
250 ml bottle purchased by durwoodx and shared by huhzubendah. Thanks guys! Pours a clear light yellow color with a few tiny bubbles masquerading as head. Active carbonation has bubbles ascending from the base of the glass. Aroma is mild with light citrus, corn and an unpleasant yeasty note. Flavor has several different things happening at once, none of which are positive. Corn, a certain sourness, and a chalky paper-like unpalatable aspect tie it all together. A drain pour.
