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.

I drank this everyway it comes....draft, small baby bottle and oddly tiny cans. Poured a thin light golden straw color with a slight bubbly white head. Aroma of malt and a sligh touch of citrus. Palate is thin and harsh at the same time. Falvor is a bit of malt and some citrus. This is nothing but a subpar pale lager but after you see the prices you have to pay for this swill, $12.00-$15.00 for a six pack and thats from a grocery store or factory direct!!!!, you will trully long for a good ole Miller Lite 30 pack for under twenty bucks.

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.

So, to help fill my country list, i get a bottle of this hay smelling beer form my boss! THANKS DAVE! Clear pale yellow. Taste is the same, just a very mild hay like sensation all over my palate. laid back and friendly, not bad! Civilized and enjoyable. Seems much less than the 5% listed here. No real hops here, just simple good fresh lager. Deep golden color? That is a farce. A better cheap pale lager fer sure.

skortila (5685) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2004
Another beer for in the hot sun. Watery, sweet and just slightly hoppu. Clear, pale yellow/golden colour with a white head. Not really interesting in this cold country.

(Balashi) Small bottle shared by vipinvelp at home, thanks! New country tick. Golden pale in colour with a small white head, low retention and minimal lacing left behind. Aroma of adjuncts, cant really tell what, some dirty hay. Taste of maltose, sweet, with hay and dried grass. Medium thin body, average carbonation, quite dry though. Well, probably tastes better in an Aruba beach.

Bottle: Yellow, clear. More husk. Light bran, wheat with a more pleasant malty biscuity note in the nose. Still thin though.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Pale lemon yellow with small white head. Corn sweet, stale herbs, stale cornbread aromas. Sweet, lightly carbonated, slightly sticky. Sweet, simple, corny, grassy, and innocuous.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Thanks to pilsnerpeter for sharing this in a can. I didnt get too much skunk out of here- lots of doughy malts mixed in with some corn and a slight DMS- cooked corn. Flavor si much of the samel celery and corn, but also has an enticing doughy mlat character which isnt bad at all. Clean and crisp finish.

The look is clear, golden in color, and has a thin white head. The smell is corn, grains, floral, and cereal. The taste is floral, cereal, malts, and grass.
