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!

One of the better beach beers. It is what it is. Yellow lager, thin head, nothing discernible, but thirst quenching.

Bottle. Pale yellow color with minimal white head. Boiled corn aroma and taste, typical southern lager.

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!

I’m guessing thanks to fezmonkey for this, from the snafu raffle ;) pours with a decent looking head which soon fades, typical macro pale lager but something strange in the flavor i can’t quite place. decent, but i wouldn’t wanna drink it regularly.. unless i were in aruba.

Thin light pour, lasting white head, very carbonated, a bit bitter, maybe a slight hint of apple, finish was almost metallic, nothing special.

I guess you have to try it once while you are in Aruba. Then order a real beer.
