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.

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.

bottle, Iguana Joes, Oranjestad Aruba. best by July, 19, 2009. Weak aroma, corn, dough, hay. Pale clean golden color, no head or lace. Bitter flavor, though mildly so, like aroma. Lite body, watery mouthfeel, dry bitter finish, another classic Caribbean lager,

Can courtesy of blankboy - thanks, Paul! Clear bright yellow-gold with a thin wisp of head. Aroma of corn husk, toasted grain & dried grass. Body is clean and crisp with a nice level of carbonation. Flavour is also quite clean, with toasted cereal, a hint of honey, and grassy hops in the finish. Not to my taste, but fine enough for what it is - and if I was in Aruba, I’d have no problem drinking a bunch of ’em.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2008
Bottled. Courtesy of omhper. Pale yellow with a low fizzy white head. Sweet aroma of straw, sugar and corn. Light-bodied with touches of hay, canned mushrooms, corn and peas with mild undertones grass and lemon. Sweet short finish of cookies and peas.

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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2009
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 isn’t 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.

Can provided by PilsenerPeter. WOOHOO!!! Skunky, almost spicy aroma. Kind of smells like steak. And tidepools. Easy drinking, pure shitty lager flavor. Nothing special, nothing terrible, really.

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2008
Nose is corn with a hint of malt, yellow, tiny white head. Taste is corn, light bodied, thin, Thanks for the new country Radek Kliber!

PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Can: Thanks Lauren. I am glad you enjoyed your honeymoon. Pours pale golden with perfect clarity, some effervescence, and almost no head retention. The aroma has some mildly sweet pale malt notes, with a touch of brewing cereal- although it is not adjunct ridden. Body is a bit fizzy on the palate, but not as thin as some pale lagers of the Carribean. The flavor displays some cheap pale malt upfront- watery grains, with a straw presence. There is just a slight hint of grassiness from cheap hops. A generic pale lager of the Carribean.
