3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank this from the tap in the brewery in 2007, though made with filtered seawater not a sign of slatiness. 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.

333.3 mL can - pours clear/yellow with thin white head - Aroma is mildly skunky sweet. Taste is very bread-like. Faint and quickly dissipating.

Inoffensive and drinkable...not much flavor. Tastes a little of cheap alcohol and grain. Comes in a small can...maybe 8 oz...good thing because i definitely didn’t want more.

Can. Pours a very pale yellow with a white head that lasts; lots of carbonation - you can hear it bubble. Grassy, slightly sour aroma. Taste: some malt, like cereal, a slight touch of grassy bitterness. Finishes with grassiness. For a carribean pale lager, this is pretty good.

A perfectly reasonable thirst-quenching beer for a tropical climate. Other than that, not much to say about this non-descript offering. It is what it is... you are paying for a beer that is brewed with more emphasis on being refreshing than flavorful. You know what you are getting with it. Fairly non-descript

I have very fond memories involving this beer since quite a few were consumed at our wedding and honeymoon in Aruba, but take that away and I find very little else about it appealing. There’s a very strong, skunky scent and the taste is malty in a watery, cheap way. Beautiful island, though!

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light maltiness. Sharp carbonation. Light straw aroma. Not the worst light lager in the world.

Clear and crisp with nice carbonation. My brother brought some back from Aruba and this was pretty good - even canned. I’ve had a number of European pilsners which suffered in comparison.

Thanks to SpringsLicker for adding Aruba to my ’beer map’! Pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma was very light malt, some green-bottle skunk, and a touch of fresh grass. Flavor reflected, added a note of sweetness, and was quite crisp in the finish. Drank half before dinner, to make sure I didn’t confuse or ’compound’ the delicate flavors, and had the rest with my curried chicken & rice. Worked well. For what it was ... I enjoyed it!
