1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap at various places in Aruba. Clear pee yellow. Weak white foam. No retention or lace. Nose is creamed corn, pineapple, something like diacetyl with browned butter and rancid dairy. Taste is papery, bland, some pineapple juice, creamed corn, slick diacetyl. Finishes surprisingly lactic like sour dough bread. Brewing flaws galore.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can shared by pilsnerpeter. Pale golden/straw colour. Aroma of corn and DMS. Really strange and not that good. Salty and lightly briny. Tropical lager that is very lean and light.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2012-02-26. Crisp dark yellow body, small fast fading white head. Mild aroma, lightly grainy cereally character. Flavour is similar, mild cereally grainy character to the malt, light bitterness but a sweet overall impression. Average body. Inoffensive but not particularly appealing either. Can from Blankboy

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huge, just yellow-coloured, very dense head fed by heavy carbonated yellow-golden beer. Herbal, dry and quite grassy. Slightly milky nose as well, milk-ripe grain, maybe. Not bad. Dry, nearly spicey, slightly grassy pilsener. Unfortunately a bitterness, that is totally metallic, comes up, and supersedes most else. Quite watery, light. Aftertaste is still this unfortunate metallic. Started off quite promising. Too bad about the finish. Thanks, Dean!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Courtesy of fishingnet. Thanks for landing me a sweet new country rating. Pours clear watery gold and thin bright white head. The aroma has a mild skunkiness to start followed by cereal, hay and sugary sweet malts. The taste is light and refreshing. I can picture consuming this on a hot day on the beach. The taste is sugar sweet malts backed up by a shiv of lemon zest, cereal, grainy malts and some faint vague hops at the end.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
25cl bottle, thanks Tderoeck for the share.
Dorée, col blanc.
Arôme garde ce sale bouquet métallique de malt avec un houblon qui se glisse difficilement.
Palais est typique du style, dans ce cas ci, très médiocre en comparaison de la version ’chill’ nettement plus rafraichissante. Malt pils/pâle avec un houblon quasi imperceptible et ce fini horrible de maïs.
