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.

Clear yellow color, thin white head, medium carbonation. Aroma is light hoppy, some malts. Taste is moderately bitter and a bit sweet, slightly salty, though nice balance. Bit dry palate, but still refreshing. Very decent lager.

Yellow pour with white head and lace. Lemon, corn, and light malt aroma. Sweet corn, earthy hops and perfume. Thin and fizzy.

Strykzone (4910) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting by a member who brought it back from Aruba. Might be a new country for me. Very clear light golden which is pretty much what is expected. A thick white head. Some decent carbonation. Some light honey in the nose. This is fairly well hopped for a pale lager. There are European hops that bring some dryness and a hint of spice. This stands up well to its style.

14/IV/2012 - 22cl bottle @ home - BB: 2/V/12 (2012-354) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the bottle!

Clear light orange beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: nasty, rotten hay, pretty skanky, corn syrup. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: some citrus, bit hoppy, grains, hay. Aftertaste: slightly bitter, corn sweetness. Terrible, even when chilled in the freezer. Nothing hides the terrible aroma.

skortila (4481) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2004
Another beer for in the hot sun. Watery, sweet and just slightly hoppu. Clear, pale yellow/golden colour with a white head. Not really interesting in this cold country.

Thanks to egajdzis for bringing home this 8 oz can from his trip to Aruba. Pours a translucent yellow with no head. Aroma was grainy malts, corn, grassy, lemon and floral. Flavor was sweet and corny, grains and pretzels.

Beer4000 (4440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2006
236ml can. Pale body with thin white head. Almost no aroma at all. Flavor is slightly bitter, some kind of sourish (a little hint of apple juice) and a hint of bitterness. Palate is watery. No aftertaste to talk about, just a little metallic feeling. A very typical mainstream lager.

I drank this everyway it comes....draft, small baby bottle and oddly tiny cans. Poured a thin light golden straw color with a slight bubbly white head. Aroma of malt and a sligh touch of citrus. Palate is thin and harsh at the same time. Falvor is a bit of malt and some citrus. This is nothing but a subpar pale lager but after you see the prices you have to pay for this swill, $12.00-$15.00 for a six pack and thats from a grocery store or factory direct!!!!, you will trully long for a good ole Miller Lite 30 pack for under twenty bucks.

travita (3928) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2013
The look is clear, golden in color, and has a thin white head. The smell is corn, grains, floral, and cereal. The taste is floral, cereal, malts, and grass.
