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.

I guess you have to try it once while you are in Aruba. Then order a real beer.

Can shared by pilsnerpeter. Pale golden/straw colour. Aroma of corn and DMS. Really strange and not that good. Salty and lightly briny. Tropical lager that is very lean and light.

A perfectly reasonable thirst-quenching beer for a tropical climate. Other than that, not much to say about this non-descript offering. It is what it is... you are paying for a beer that is brewed with more emphasis on being refreshing than flavorful. You know what you are getting with it. Fairly non-descript

Thanks to pilsnerpeter for sharing this in a can. I didnt get too much skunk out of here- lots of doughy malts mixed in with some corn and a slight DMS- cooked corn. Flavor si much of the samel celery and corn, but also has an enticing doughy mlat character which isnt bad at all. Clean and crisp finish.

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.

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.

An ok drinker. This was brought back by a friend from her honeymoon for me! Typical pale lager. Maybe a little light. I had this from a can.

Cute little 8oz can shared courtesy of egajdzis. Poured a lighter and clear yellow color with a small sized white head. Aroms of straw, grains, and grassy. Tastes of the same with corn. Body and tastes on the watery side.

Thanks to egajdzis for bringing home this 8 oz can from his trip to Aruba. Pours a translucent yellow with no head. Aroma was grainy malts, corn, grassy, lemon and floral. Flavor was sweet and corny, grains and pretzels.
