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.

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.

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.

Location: 8 oz can my parents brought me from Aruba, 12/29/13

Aroma: The nose is full of sweet malts, corn, hay, and the rest of what you’d guess
Appearance: Pours a clear gold color without much head or lace to it at all
Flavor: Tastes much the same, sweet malts, corn, and boredom, pretty much what you’d expect
Palate: The body is light, it has an average-to-lively carbonation, and a somewhat thin feel
Overall Impression: I wasn’t all that impressed by this one, but I wasn’t particularly disappointed either. This beer was basically exactly what I expected it to be.

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.

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.

Can - brought back from Aruba by Mike B - thanks!. Pours pale yellow with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is grain, cardboard, corn syrup, hay. Flavor is about the same. Pretty much right down the middle of the Pale Lager fairway.

Had about 50 of these in Aruba, it is their local beer so just drinking local. Decent beer? Slightly skunky taste unless it was super cold. Typical lager compares to red stripe in my opinion ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
