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.

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.

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,

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can courtesy of blankboy - thanks, Paul! Clear bright yellow-gold with a thin wisp of head. Aroma of corn husk, toasted grain & dried grass. Body is clean and crisp with a nice level of carbonation. Flavour is also quite clean, with toasted cereal, a hint of honey, and grassy hops in the finish. Not to my taste, but fine enough for what it is - and if I was in Aruba, I’d have no problem drinking a bunch of ’em.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can: Thanks Lauren. I am glad you enjoyed your honeymoon. Pours pale golden with perfect clarity, some effervescence, and almost no head retention. The aroma has some mildly sweet pale malt notes, with a touch of brewing cereal- although it is not adjunct ridden. Body is a bit fizzy on the palate, but not as thin as some pale lagers of the Carribean. The flavor displays some cheap pale malt upfront- watery grains, with a straw presence. There is just a slight hint of grassiness from cheap hops. A generic pale lager of the Carribean.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, thank you Blankboy! Clear yellow, small white head. Aroma is mild bit clean, faint light hops. Taste is also very clean - light body, foamy mouthfeel, some light dusty hops present. Better than what I was expecting, I could drink a few of these in the right setting.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle thanks to SpringsLicker. Pours pale yellow with a large white foam. Aroma is that skunky Carribean lager, hay, some sweetness. Taste is as expected, sweet malt, adjuncty, hay, grass. Would do its job on a hot summer day.

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.
