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.

Can shared by Uncle John - thanks! Clear light gold pour, minor head. Corn, somewhat sweet, not bad for the style.

Huge, just yellow-coloured, very dense head fed by heavy carbonated yellow-golden beer. Herbal, dry and quite grassy. Slightly milky nose as well, milk-ripe grain, maybe. Not bad. Dry, nearly spicey, slightly grassy pilsener. Unfortunately a bitterness, that is totally metallic, comes up, and supersedes most else. Quite watery, light. Aftertaste is still this unfortunate metallic. Started off quite promising. Too bad about the finish. Thanks, Dean!

25cl bottle, thanks Tderoeck for the share. Dore, col blanc. Arme garde ce sale bouquet mtallique de malt avec un houblon qui se glisse difficilement. Palais est typique du style, dans ce cas ci, trs mdiocre en comparaison de la version chill nettement plus rafraichissante. Malt pils/ple avec un houblon quasi imperceptible et ce fini horrible de mas.

20cl bottle from a friend. I drank this at the brewery in Aruba in 2006. A nice lager for the Aruban climate.

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.

14/IV/2012 - 22cl bottle @ home - BB: 2/V/12 (2012-354) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the bottle!

Clear light orange beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: nasty, rotten hay, pretty skanky, corn syrup. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: some citrus, bit hoppy, grains, hay. Aftertaste: slightly bitter, corn sweetness. Terrible, even when chilled in the freezer. Nothing hides the terrible aroma.

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.

Many thanks to kevnic2008 for sharing. Golden colour with a grainy-malty nose. The beer starts neutral-grainy, malty-sweetish and a bit more intense than the "Balashi Chill". Malty-grain is dominating the quite watery picture with hints of a malty sweetness. Easy drinkable and very refreshing. Nearly no bitterness in the end. Nice for what it wants to be.
