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.

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.

Thanks to SpringsLicker for adding Aruba to my ’beer map’! Pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma was very light malt, some green-bottle skunk, and a touch of fresh grass. Flavor reflected, added a note of sweetness, and was quite crisp in the finish. Drank half before dinner, to make sure I didn’t confuse or ’compound’ the delicate flavors, and had the rest with my curried chicken & rice. Worked well. For what it was ... I enjoyed it!

Can thanks to Jeff! Clear golden body with nose of corn and malts. Way past due dat but still a decent pilsener. Tasty, a bit sweet and quite smooth. Can imagine it goes down well cold on a tropical island.

22cl/7oz bottle-courtesy SpringsLicker-pours a dissipating white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet corn/grain. Taste is sweet corn/grain, secondary herbal/medicinal hops (hallertau?).

Suttree (6358) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle from Springslicker. Bonus appearance point for the absolutely adorable little bottle. Anyway, typical tropical lager. Some mild skunk, some corn, probably tastes better on a boat...

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2010
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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 On Draft 1/27/10 at the brewery "Beer Garden" in Aruba while on shore for the day, while on the "Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise". Not bad for the style. Decent white head, Clear medium gold color. The flavor was a bit skunky, although this sample was draft. Woody, hop aroma, faint malt as should be. The Brewmaster is German, and he does a commendable job brewing a boring style of beer as well as any.

Inoffensive and drinkable...not much flavor. Tastes a little of cheap alcohol and grain. Comes in a small can...maybe 8 oz...good thing because i definitely didn’t want more.

Crisp and refreshing beer I had while in Aruba on my honeymoon. A great beer to session with before dinner and late into the evening while smoking cigars on the beach.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Courtesy of Oscbert. Pours a clear light gold with a small white layer of foam. Aroma is mostly of hay, grass, not much else. Flavor repeats with hay and finishes with a little sweetness. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Upper-medium carbonation. Overall, fair plus.
