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.

Courtesy of fishingnet. Thanks for landing me a sweet new country rating. Pours clear watery gold and thin bright white head. The aroma has a mild skunkiness to start followed by cereal, hay and sugary sweet malts. The taste is light and refreshing. I can picture consuming this on a hot day on the beach. The taste is sugar sweet malts backed up by a shiv of lemon zest, cereal, grainy malts and some faint vague hops at the end.

Dorwart (2607) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2008
Poured from a cute 8 oz can. Fluffy white head of fine bubbles. Light cereal and rice aroma with a bit of spicy hops. Color is a light gold. Slightly fizzy in the mouth. Clean and very refreshing with some more cereal grains, rice and a decent bitterness from the hops. Light flavor with nothing really to take offense to with this one. A decent light lager that is typical for the style except for maybe a little extra hops presence.

jimhilt (2621) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Clear pale yellow color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Grassy nose. Flavor is muted grassy and lacking. Clean but wicked dry finish. Gift from a traveler 220ml bottle from Aruba.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear very pale golden with a small white head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of light pilsner malt, hay, and a hint of floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and crisp finish. Not Bad.

Homer7530 (10) - New York, USA - MAR 15, 2008
In the US, this would be a mediocre Americn macro. Tastes more like a watered down Heineken. In the hot dry days in Aruba, this beer becomes a lot more palatable. They have this eveywhere down there.

Bottled (thanks omhper!). Golden colour, with small sparkling bubbly head. Aroma is rather sweet with some malts, hay, cardboard and maize. Flavour is about the same with some bigtime grassyness lurking in the background.
