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.

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.

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.

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

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
