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.

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

Suttree (5379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2010
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...

decaturstevo (5342) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Yellow pour with white head and lace. Lemon, corn, and light malt aroma. Sweet corn, earthy hops and perfume. Thin and fizzy.

Strykzone (5337) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - 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 (5076) - 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.

Beer4000 (4926) - 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.

77ships (4844) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2012
22 cl. bottle shared / thx to Tderoeck – crystal clear golden, smell & taste is lots of sweet corn syrup, skunky, old vegetables, old hay, synthetic hops in aftertaste, old hay, very slightly better in an unimportant way than the Chill version

skortila (4724) - 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.
