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.

cheap (5363) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2016
So, to help fill my country list, i get a bottle of this hay smelling beer form my boss! THANKS DAVE! Clear pale yellow. Taste is the same, just a very mild hay like sensation all over my palate. laid back and friendly, not bad! Civilized and enjoyable. Seems much less than the 5% listed here. No real hops here, just simple good fresh lager. Deep golden color? That is a farce. A better cheap pale lager fer sure.

LazyPyro (598) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016
22cl bottle brought back from Aruba to the UK by a friend. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is grainy, light malt, bit of corn maybe, light hops, thankfully not skunked at all. Taste is the same as any typical macro lager, grainy, light sweet malt, corn, hint of fruit, almost no bitterness. Thin body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Yeah for a Caribbean lager it’s not bad actually, I’m sure it tastes even better on a hot sunny day sitting beach in Aruba.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold. Not much aroma but some grains and perfumey notes. Taste is crisp clean with a decent amount of skunk. Pretty typical macro lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can sent from the States. Pours gold, clear with a single finger bubbly white head. Aroma of light malt and grain. Taste of light malt, cereal and some grass. Touch metallic, not too great.
