Can, on tap, and in a bottle (a very tiny, little bottle... how cute!). Better double fist these. Pours golden and clear with a small white head. Any aroma you get will definitely have some corn and cereal notes. The palate is pretty simple and follows the nose. Listen, this beer isnt trying to win anything at the GABF, but it is perfect for the scorching hot sun of Aruba. You can easily drink the little 7 oz. bottles by the dozen.

BuckeyeBoy (7052) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Bottle Pours out a gold toppd with a small head. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Tast was of malts and light grass. Not the grass you were thinking of (spring grass).

jake65 (3493) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Bottle: Bright yellow pour with no real head. Sweet honey and malty scent. Malty taste with a small grassey feel. Not bad, not good. Thanks Jordan.

OldGrowth (3399) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2009
bottle, Iguana Joes, Oranjestad Aruba. best by July, 19, 2009. Weak aroma, corn, dough, hay. Pale clean golden color, no head or lace. Bitter flavor, though mildly so, like aroma. Lite body, watery mouthfeel, dry bitter finish, another classic Caribbean lager,

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

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
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.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2008
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

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2008
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.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2008
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.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2008
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.
