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.

333ml can courtesy of blankboy - thanks, guy!! Clear pale gold, large lasting bright white waxy head. Sweet aroma, clover and garden hose. Taste follows, even sweeter, little harsh. Light body, sweet, decent carbonation .... on a beach, I wouldnt spurn this.

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.

egajdzis (6233) - 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.

Suttree (6194) - 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...

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.

(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 (6020) - 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.

Can thanks to Jeff! Clear golden body with nose of corn and malts. Way past due dat but still a decent pilsener. Tasty, a bit sweet and quite smooth. Can imagine it goes down well cold on a tropical island.

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
