Bottle from my brother. Pale gold with a thin head. Aroma of grainy malt. Flavor is similar, a little bread and citrus bitterness.

Aruba beer. Do a little dance. Make a little love. Get down tonight. The beer comes in this cute little bottle that looks like it should be served on airplanes by those arrogant pricks that fake smile at you and ask if you would like a snack, knowing full well that six peanuts and a shitty processed sugar cookie is only herding you toward numb obedience and an inevitable slow and miserable death. Like I said, small bottle. Sweet smelling. Adjuncts, corn, cigarettes on the beach, middle age chics acting like they dont regret that tattoo they got back when they used to maybe be sexy, but now their gunts cover up the ridiculous rhinestones on their bikini bottoms that stopped fitting after they had their third ill-advised child with some GED toting douche bag who rides a motorcycle to Buffalo Wild Wings so he can try and beat his low life middle age peers in bar trivia, where questions like "Chief Suggam Bagadix surrendered his manhood in which battle?" get the night shift crowd all hot and bothered. I would like to visit Aruba someday.

11 oz. can that I received as a gift from someone who just got back from a vacation in Aruba. Pours a crystal clear gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first sip and left no lace. Mild aroma of corn cereal and some grassy hops. The flavor is corn cereal up front followed by some harsh grassy hops. Thin, watery body.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 On Draft 1/27/10 at the brewery "Beer Garden" in Aruba while on shore for the day, while on the "Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise". Not bad for the style. Decent white head, Clear medium gold color. The flavor was a bit skunky, although this sample was draft. Woody, hop aroma, faint malt as should be. The Brewmaster is German, and he does a commendable job brewing a boring style of beer as well as any.

Bottle: Bright yellow pour with no real head. Sweet honey and malty scent. Malty taste with a small grassey feel. Not bad, not good. Thanks Jordan.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a thin gold body with no head. The aroma is light malt, light hops, sea air. The flavor is oddly not very bad. Plain Jane as can be but meets the style well. The palate is medium-light bodied, decent. Refreshing. A good example of a pale lager.

Can, on tap, and in a bottle (a very tiny, little bottle... how cute!). Better double fist these. Pours golden and clear with a small white head. Any aroma you get will definitely have some corn and cereal notes. The palate is pretty simple and follows the nose. Listen, this beer isnt trying to win anything at the GABF, but it is perfect for the scorching hot sun of Aruba. You can easily drink the little 7 oz. bottles by the dozen.
