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.

JoeZasada (317) - Beaumont, Alberta, - MAR 18, 2011
Can. Pours a very pale yellow with a white head that lasts; lots of carbonation - you can hear it bubble. Grassy, slightly sour aroma. Taste: some malt, like cereal, a slight touch of grassy bitterness. Finishes with grassiness. For a carribean pale lager, this is pretty good.

MarkoNm (2799) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 5, 2017
Pours clear yellow golden, topped with small white head. Grainy nose, corn and slight chalk. Sweet malty start, a hint of bitterness in the finish. Short aftertaste. Light body. fresh and sparkly feel. Wouldn’t be half bad in Aruba’s heat.

NordicV (2361) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2017
Flaska. Ljust gyllengul öl med ett ganska snabbt försvinnande vitt skum. Mycket maltsötma i både doft och smak. Även lite hö och säd.

BNAstoutlover (5) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2017 does not count
Many a bottle on the island. A bit too malty for my taste, but good color and finish. Great go to when in Aruba and dealing with the limited options of imports and wanting to drink local.
