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

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11 oz. can that I received as a gift from someone who just got back from a vacation in Aruba. Pours a crystal clear gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first sip and left no lace. Mild aroma of corn cereal and some grassy hops. The flavor is corn cereal up front followed by some harsh grassy hops. Thin, watery body.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Given by a friend. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, rather sweet, faintest hint of hops. Light bodied. Supposedly brewed by a German brewer with imported German malts, though in reality it is just another beer brewed for and in a warm climate. Refreshing though.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a thin gold body with no head. The aroma is light malt, light hops, sea air. The flavor is oddly not very bad. Plain Jane as can be but meets the style well. The palate is medium-light bodied, decent. Refreshing. A good example of a pale lager.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can, on tap, and in a bottle (a very tiny, little bottle... how cute!). Better double fist these. Pours golden and clear with a small white head. Any aroma you get will definitely have some corn and cereal notes. The palate is pretty simple and follows the nose. Listen, this beer isn’t trying to win anything at the GABF, but it is perfect for the scorching hot sun of Aruba. You can easily drink the little 7 oz. bottles by the dozen.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can provided by PilsenerPeter. WOOHOO!!! Skunky, almost spicy aroma. Kind of smells like steak. And tidepools. Easy drinking, pure shitty lager flavor. Nothing special, nothing terrible, really.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 On Draft 1/27/10 at the brewery "Beer Garden" in Aruba while on shore for the day, while on the "Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise".
Not bad for the style. Decent white head, Clear medium gold color. The flavor was a bit skunky, although this sample was draft. Woody, hop aroma, faint malt as should be.
The Brewmaster is German, and he does a commendable job brewing a boring style of beer as well as any.
