2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22cl bottle brought back from Aruba to the UK by a friend. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is grainy, light malt, bit of corn maybe, light hops, thankfully not skunked at all. Taste is the same as any typical macro lager, grainy, light sweet malt, corn, hint of fruit, almost no bitterness. Thin body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Yeah for a Caribbean lager it’s not bad actually, I’m sure it tastes even better on a hot sunny day sitting beach in Aruba.

In bottle from store in Aruba .. very light and easy drinking. Nothing special but easy to manage while sitting on the beach.
The Balashi Special (Carnaval 60) was better

Drank this on a beach in Aruba. Typical beer that you find in the Caribbean. Pale yellow, thin head. Refreshing on the beach when served cold. Not flavorful.

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!

Nice golden color with a disappearing white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet, like corn. Flavor is sweet and grassy. Watery body and no end.

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.
