A: A darker gold than most adjuncts. Not much head and no lacing.
S: Neutral overall, but a sweet scent.
T: A slight sweet taste. Trying to figure out what it tastes like, and honestly, tastes waxy.
M: Light, a little creamy, though.
D: It's okay for the style, could drink this in hot weather.
Overall, Aruba did an okay job.

The only thing I really liked about this beer was that I drank it in Aruba. I had two, in fact - one draft and one can. I guess I liked one other thing - they were much cheaper than the crap beer they were serving on the Coral Princess cruise ship I was on.
It actually had a funky unnatural color. Sort of green. It came recommended, but the source of the recommendation was unreliable. The taste was very forgettable. You want to forget it. But the bar I had it in was pretty cool - open air, by a mall. They had a stuffed Santa suit passed out at the bar (the holidays were approaching). The can I bought in the cruise terminal and drank it while shopping. It was 2 or 3 bucks, but still cheap compared to the ship.
I wonder if it is their water that makes it worse (the style is also at fault).
Still, it was nice to have a cold one on a nice hot day in Aruba. Right about now I would like to be back there.

Enjoyed from bottle at airport out of Aruba. Green small bottle
A 3 simple cerveza clear. Lacing apparent on bottle.
S 3 skunky without much character. Slightly grainy.
T 4. Very much like Heineken. Very refreshing beer. Sweet up front skunky was doesn't carry through badly. Nice and bitter on finish good with a lime
M. 4. Light bodies with ample carbonation
O 4. I enjoyed many of these down on the happy island of Aruba. It is a great summery beer.
