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.

Overall not a bad beer, but without going back to aruba I dont intend to drink any elsewhere. Clearish, bland macro beer taste, but it was great on the warm beach.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold. Not much aroma but some grains and perfumey notes. Taste is crisp clean with a decent amount of skunk. Pretty typical macro lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden yellow with some bubbles and small head. Aroma is minimal. Light body. Crisp and sort of refreshing, the slightest amount of bitterness and brief off-dry finish. Unobjectionable, but I would move along folks, because theres nothing to see here.

Clear, yellow, thin head and lace. Nose of pale grainy malt and a bit of adjuncts. Light bodied, water texture, a bit of malt development thats nice, bit of a lemony twang that was suprising and pleasant. Slight bitterness. Best green bottled little island beer I ever had.

Courtesy of Oscbert. Pours a clear light gold with a small white layer of foam. Aroma is mostly of hay, grass, not much else. Flavor repeats with hay and finishes with a little sweetness. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Upper-medium carbonation. Overall, fair plus.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pale straw color with a bright white head. Grainy, fruity aromas, well carbonated, not much hops. Refreshing, but kind of thin. Had on tap and brought a bottle back. Seemed to taste better on the beach, but what doesnt?

Its tough to give this beer a bad rating especially since I feel I have grow to love this Aruba brew. This is a crisp clean beer that has a slightly bitter flavor. Palate is not terrific, but the smooth taste in a hot Aruba day is. The one issue with this beer is that it must be near freezing temperatures to really taste good, otherwise it is crap. Enjoy.

Had one in aruba ( of course ) on honeymoon. Its a caribbean lager, slightly darker and more bitter than I would have expected. Every beer within a hundred mile tastes about the same. Viva aruba!

You know what? This beer is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, it suprised me. Aroma is nothing to speak of a bit of funk and skunk. Taste however is nicely hoppy of Sazz, mouthfeel fuller than I expected and carbonation about perfect. Finish is clean and crisp.
