COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This was actually a surprise from the standpoint that it wasn’t disgusting ... and it was actually a hair better than most Dutch exports upon which it’s based. This poured like the Euro pils it is; a big airy head over a corn-starchy aroma. But the flavor is clean and malty-crisp with a fruit syrup finish. Not too bad.

(11.27oz (very exact numbers here, thanks guys!) can best by 1-16-11 thanks to zdk9) clear water-like color with a ring of bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, brown sugar and light raisin. Taste of earth, light grain, decent amount of flavor for the style with a slick finish. Honestly for what it is, not bad!

Bottle: Yellow, clear. More husk. Light bran, wheat with a more pleasant malty biscuity note in the nose. Still thin though.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2008 Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted notes, some citrus, and a light grassy hoppiness. Taste was toasted, bready malts, tart citrus, low bitterness, with a sweet, corn finish. Really not horrible, without that corny taste, this would be pretty OK.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Pale lemon yellow with small white head. Corn sweet, stale herbs, stale cornbread aromas. Sweet, lightly carbonated, slightly sticky. Sweet, simple, corny, grassy, and innocuous.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Thanks to pilsnerpeter for sharing this in a can. I didnt get too much skunk out of here- lots of doughy malts mixed in with some corn and a slight DMS- cooked corn. Flavor si much of the samel celery and corn, but also has an enticing doughy mlat character which isnt bad at all. Clean and crisp finish.

20cl bottle from a friend. I drank this at the brewery in Aruba in 2006. A nice lager for the Aruban climate.

Bottle from Springslicker. Bonus appearance point for the absolutely adorable little bottle. Anyway, typical tropical lager. Some mild skunk, some corn, probably tastes better on a boat...
