I had more than a few of these on my honeymoon. It reminded me a lot of an Antiguan beer (Wadadli) I had a few years back. It is very nice in the hot Aruba weather.

Maybe I like this beer because it’s pretty much the only beer you can get in Aruba, and the weather would make natty light taste good. Not far from water, Little hoppy, a little color, a little fizzy, a little malty. Like Red Stripe and Zambezi, think of what you want your beer to be like if you lived in the desert.

Had this on on draught on de Palm Island, Aruba. Medium yellow color with a medium white bubbly head, A fairly standard lager without a whole lot going on, satisfactorily drinkable on a hot day on the beach. Not bad.

In the US, this would be a mediocre Americn macro. Tastes more like a watered down Heineken. In the hot dry days in Aruba, this beer becomes a lot more palatable. They have this eveywhere down there.

Beer was skunked (it had a long trip). I don't want to pan it for that. Malty golden beer with low hop. Seems like an OK beach beer....

Nice crisp clear beer. The bottle I tried was skunked though. Low hop. Some malt. It would have been good if it wasn't skunked. Good summer beer.

Draft - This was a good drinking beer; perfect for the warm weather in Aruba. Very little hops but something about looking at white beaches and palm trees makes this beer taste better when you drink it.

Clear and crisp with nice carbonation. My brother brought some back from Aruba and this was pretty good - even canned. I’ve had a number of European pilsners which suffered in comparison.

Nothing spectacular here, but surprisingly good for what you might expect on a small island off the coast of SA. Light flavor, but very clean. Slight hops finish. Perfect for the hot sun.
