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.

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.
(From small bottle, twenty-something cL)

Bottle Pours out a gold toppd with a small head. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Tast was of malts and light grass. Not the grass you were thinking of (spring grass).

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 12, 2012
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.

OldGrowth (2649) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2009
bottle, Iguana Joes, Oranjestad Aruba. best by July, 19, 2009. Weak aroma, corn, dough, hay. Pale clean golden color, no head or lace. Bitter flavor, though mildly so, like aroma. Lite body, watery mouthfeel, dry bitter finish, another classic Caribbean lager,

kaser (2624) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2012
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

Bottle: Bright yellow pour with no real head. Sweet honey and malty scent. Malty taste with a small grassey feel. Not bad, not good. Thanks Jordan.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2010
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!

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2006
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.

Aruba beer. Do a little dance. Make a little love. Get down tonight. The beer comes in this cute little bottle that looks like it should be served on airplanes by those arrogant pricks that fake smile at you and ask if you would like a snack, knowing full well that six peanuts and a shitty processed sugar cookie is only herding you toward numb obedience and an inevitable slow and miserable death. Like I said, small bottle. Sweet smelling. Adjuncts, corn, cigarettes on the beach, middle age chics acting like they don’t regret that tattoo they got back when they used to maybe be sexy, but now their gunts cover up the ridiculous rhinestones on their bikini bottoms that stopped fitting after they had their third ill-advised child with some GED toting douche bag who rides a motorcycle to Buffalo Wild Wings so he can try and beat his low life middle age peers in bar trivia, where questions like "Chief Suggam Bagadix surrendered his manhood in which battle?" get the night shift crowd all hot and bothered. I would like to visit Aruba someday.

(Can - 8 oz.) Pours a yellow color with a fizzy looking white head. Not much aroma, but some light grains could be detected. Grass and grain in the taste, complete with a mild metallic aftertaste. Good palate for a pale lager. Some bitterness as well. The can I had might have been a little old, but I can’t imagine this beer tasting any better.
