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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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
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.

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.

Pale golden colour. Low head. Honey pastilles, hay and alcohol aroma. Bit sweet in flavour with honey here as well along with subtle notes of grassy hops.

Very cute 22 cl bottle. It must be that most people can’t stand much more than that before they turn to the higher-priced beach-side frozen drinks with little umbrella toothpicks. Standard rich yellow with some fizzy head. Quite effusively grassy aroma, though not reaching skunkiness. The flavor is more paper mulchy up front, with a mid-palate sweetness that belies the generally dry, hop-driven profile. Finishes with a noticeable hop note, even spicy at the end, peppery. It reaches into the kind of Germanic hops at the end that don’t suit my tastes, but at least my bottle--which is quite fresh, brought to me from a friend on holiday--doesn’t display any metallic or off-notes that some report. The palate is a bit limp, despite the moderate carbonation. Overall, I would rank this as "above average" from the "international lagers" of the world (beers from countries that have just one or two breweries and no brewing tradition), in that it shows evidence of real ingredients and not obviously laden with adjuncts. But were I on the beaches of Aruba, after one bottle, unless the fruity drinks were just too much money, I’d be looking for something with rum in it. Thanks H.N. for bringing the bottle!

(can - 8 oz) First off, props to the little can. I’m a huge fan. Clear yellow color with a fizzy white head. Looks like your normal run-of-the-mill pils. Aroma is light and bitter with some hops, grass, and corn. Flavor begins slightly sweet with a hint of corn and some hops, followed by a thin and watery body and a slightly bitter and sweet finish. Finishes clean.

Can thanks to Jeff! Clear golden body with nose of corn and malts. Way past due dat but still a decent pilsener. Tasty, a bit sweet and quite smooth. Can imagine it goes down well cold on a tropical island.
