Bottle. Pale yellow color with minimal white head. Boiled corn aroma and taste, typical southern lager. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - 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. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2013
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. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Pale yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is of grain and corn. Taste is the same. Martinus (4701) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2011
Given by a friend. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, rather sweet, faintest hint of hops. Light bodied. Supposedly brewed by a German brewer with imported German malts, though in reality it is just another beer brewed for and in a warm climate. Refreshing though.

Bottle as gift from a friend. Typical lager look, clear golden, medium white head. Aroma is rather skunky, malty and cardboard. Flavour is medium sweet, not much else. All the characteristics of a decent lager, but really nothing more. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Thanks to egajdzis for bringing home this 8 oz can from his trip to Aruba. Pours a translucent yellow with no head. Aroma was grainy malts, corn, grassy, lemon and floral. Flavor was sweet and corny, grains and pretzels. vipinvelp (4540) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Pale yellow no foam left. Typical barley taste and aroma. Probably much better when drinking on s warm beach in country. (Arnhem 201502)

Review from notes sampled the week of 8/6/2008
Honeymoon in Aruba and lets just say craft beer hasn’t come into vogue on this scorching desert of an island. Balashi is the Aruba beer and you can find it everywhere. I got the chance to try this on tap, in green 12oz bottles and in brown 7oz bottles, it makes no difference the beer is a pretty crappy macro lager. Smells and tastes like you’d expect light with hints of corn, honey, grains, and some skunk. I often found a mineral taste, but not always. When in Aruba this is certainly your freshest choice, but certainly nothing to get excited about.
