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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
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.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
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

JorisPPattyn (9530) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2007
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!
