The beer has a deep golden color totally clear and transparent, with a bitterness which is soft to the tongue and nose however with an aroma of fresh hops, a short aftertaste and easy on foam. The combination of all feels fresh and smooth to the mouth when cold, perfect for Aruba's hot climate.

Not much head; goes down easy on the beach. Light tasting, inoffensive taste lingers, inoffensively.

Nothing spectacular here, but surprisingly good for what you might expect on a small island off the coast of SA. Light flavor, but very clean. Slight hops finish. Perfect for the hot sun.

bottle@home , pours clear yellow with a nice head. If I place myself in 35 dgrs in the shade with a nice tropic view and a little bit thirsty than it is quite OK. That’s why I rated this a little bit higher.

12 oz. can; gift from a friend; What can I say about this beer? There’s almost nothing to it. Crystal clear, pale yellow color, with a thin white head. Slight aroma of lemon and honey. Tastes about what you would expect. I’ve never had a beer with such a short finish. Actually it did make me burp. Maybe it does taste better on the beach in Aruba.

A perfect beach beer from Aruba. Very refreshing and hint of citrus taste. Nothing special about it. Perfectly refreshing when served cold though.

Bottle thanks to tderoeck. Nose is musky and metallic. Light watery gold with small white head. Taste is metallic, starting sweet and going to slightly bitter. Has something harsh on the palate, and is over carbonated. Bleh...

Pretty good beer. Fond memories of Aruba attached to this beer. I even have a Balashi coaster which i love. Standard pils/lager with some sweet cornish hints. Not a lot of complexity. Watery finish without a bitter slighty skunky aftertaste.

From long ago. The beer itself was decent for what it was. Would I have it again? No. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maybe I like this beer because it’s pretty much the only beer you can get in Aruba, and the weather would make natty light taste good. Not far from water, Little hoppy, a little color, a little fizzy, a little malty. Like Red Stripe and Zambezi, think of what you want your beer to be like if you lived in the desert.

Aruba is hot, so the lightness of this beer is a nice welcome. Plus it is free in all of the casinos and it is hard to say too many bad things about something that is free.
