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.

Pale amber/yellow. Thin dusty head. Odd grainy macro aroma, which actually turns me on after a few more sniffs. Fizzy cardboardy fruit. Kind of oddd... sweet and ricey or something

Got this on Aruba. There is a faint sweet smell with grasses. There is no lacing and the brew is clear the taste is unremarkable.

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2011
Can in Aruba. Light gold with quickly fading head. Sweet bread / cereal with leaves. Strong carbonation for the body but it goes well with the climate. Finish starts sweet but end with bitterness. Not bad.

Oscbert (1277) - Lincoln, California, USA - OCT 9, 2009
~Scent of spicy saaz hops, some sourness and wet straw. ~Pours a very clear gold color with small diminishing white head. ~Saaz hop flavor with sour malty hay... taste much sweeter and better at the brewery. ~Light bodied, med to high carbonation, spicy bitter finish. ~Excellent Pilsner. Refreshing brew. Great for a hot day at the beach. If you can get it straight from the brewery tap. Taste much better than at a bar or resturants tap.

Had this on on draught on de Palm Island, Aruba. Medium yellow color with a medium white bubbly head, A fairly standard lager without a whole lot going on, satisfactorily drinkable on a hot day on the beach. Not bad.

Derek881 (1266) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2006
A powerful, yet inconsistent aroma, with a fruity character. The beer is pale with a light head, and its flavor is predominantly bitter, with a light, sour effect. It was lively with a medium body and retained its bitterness in the finish. Overall, not a very impressive beer, but one that I enjoyed in Aruba, and would certainly sample again on a return visit.

Strangebrewer (1259) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2010
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.

Bottle. Had this beer in Aruba when I visited a few years back, and I just found my notes. Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head. Aromas of weak malt and hay; pretty much a standard lager aroma. Flavor isnt anything special either; weak malt, slight bitterness, and grass. But man, is this refreshing during an Aruba summer! A very efficient way to beat the heat, since it is more or less like water. Honestly, not bad at all.
