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.

(11.27oz (very exact numbers here, thanks guys!) can best by 1-16-11 thanks to zdk9) clear water-like color with a ring of bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, brown sugar and light raisin. Taste of earth, light grain, decent amount of flavor for the style with a slick finish. Honestly for what it is, not bad!

bottle. Poured clear straw coloured with a small white head. Light dry hoppy aroma. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Grainy corn flavour with a hint of granny smith apples. Finishes a little metallic.

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!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2010
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 (6504) - 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.
