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.

egajdzis (6377) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2008 Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted notes, some citrus, and a light grassy hoppiness. Taste was toasted, bready malts, tart citrus, low bitterness, with a sweet, corn finish. Really not horrible, without that corny taste, this would be pretty OK.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle courtesy of my parents trip to Aruba. Best by November 4, 2007. Smeller green bottle. Pours golden with a thin but sustained white head. Smells of apples, dry pilsner malt, some sugar, hints of citrus. Tastes slightly tarte with a strong dry pilsner malt base, some sugar and hints of citrus. Palate is slightly watery. Refreshing enough for a hot climate beer.

236ml can. Pale body with thin white head. Almost no aroma at all. Flavor is slightly bitter, some kind of sourish (a little hint of apple juice) and a hint of bitterness. Palate is watery. No aftertaste to talk about, just a little metallic feeling. A very typical mainstream lager.

Suttree (6297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle from Springslicker. Bonus appearance point for the absolutely adorable little bottle. Anyway, typical tropical lager. Some mild skunk, some corn, probably tastes better on a boat...

RobertDale (6229) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Can. Thanks John! Pours a pale gold with an average white head. Mild aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, corn, and some grass. Some metallic and skunky taste. Typical Caribbean lager.

(11.27oz (very exact numbers here, thanks guys!) can best by 1-16-11 thanks to zdk9) clear water-like color with a ring of bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, brown sugar and light raisin. Taste of earth, light grain, decent amount of flavor for the style with a slick finish. Honestly for what it is, not bad!

ben4321 (6144) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Location: 8 oz can my parents brought me from Aruba, 12/29/13

Aroma: The nose is full of sweet malts, corn, hay, and the rest of what youd guess
Appearance: Pours a clear gold color without much head or lace to it at all
Flavor: Tastes much the same, sweet malts, corn, and boredom, pretty much what youd expect
Palate: The body is light, it has an average-to-lively carbonation, and a somewhat thin feel
Overall Impression: I wasnt all that impressed by this one, but I wasnt particularly disappointed either. This beer was basically exactly what I expected it to be.

Yellow pour with white head and lace. Lemon, corn, and light malt aroma. Sweet corn, earthy hops and perfume. Thin and fizzy.

Had about 50 of these in Aruba, it is their local beer so just drinking local. Decent beer? Slightly skunky taste unless it was super cold. Typical lager compares to red stripe in my opinion ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
