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.

One of the better beach beers. It is what it is. Yellow lager, thin head, nothing discernible, but thirst quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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

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.

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

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.
