2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Blankboy. My 1st ever beer from Aruba (and by the looks of it, the only one available there) Appearance: quite light orange, vigorous carbonation, medium white head. Aroma: Mildly hoppy, a little hay and cardboard, tiny amount of fruit. Flavour: Mildly grassy, a hint of hops & fruit, not a lot else really, not bad, can certainly imagine drinking it in a nice sunny atmosphere.

This poured a pale yellow color with some odd lemon detergent aroma. The flavor is Heineken. Yes folks I didnt describe it I said Heineken. We’ve all had it before, you know the taste. Lets hope its cheaper and less trendy though!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear off yellow color and a fluffy white well laced head. Smells bad! Stale grain, touches of cardboard, and a light grass hop. Palate is very thin. Flavor is not aweful as I expected... its very light kinda grainy with hints of sweet malts and a tiny touch of hop Very easy to drink if I plug my nose.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at tasting at stevo’s. Pours a golden yellow with white head. The aroma is freshly-mown hay, lemon, light skunk, and a touch of bran. The flavor is very mild with hay-hops, touch of grain, not much else. Very simple, but actually decent for what it is.

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.

Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Clear pale yellow color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Grassy nose. Flavor is muted grassy and lacking. Clean but wicked dry finish. Gift from a traveler 220ml bottle from Aruba.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a cute 8 oz can. Fluffy white head of fine bubbles. Light cereal and rice aroma with a bit of spicy hops. Color is a light gold. Slightly fizzy in the mouth. Clean and very refreshing with some more cereal grains, rice and a decent bitterness from the hops. Light flavor with nothing really to take offense to with this one. A decent light lager that is typical for the style except for maybe a little extra hops presence.
