Thanks to Darrell for bringing this back from Aruba for me. The beer is light golden and clear with virtually no head. Sweet corn, malt, adjuncts aroma. Sweet and cloying. Good thing it comes in a small bottle. Syrupy yet light on the palate. Artificial sweetness. A beer for the masses to be consumed at the beach. A fun tick, but that's about it.

Drank from a can in a taxi on the way back to the airport in aruba. Bought a six back of these for an inflated price and it was definitely a bad idea XD

A amber clear. 3

S. 2.5 or 3. Rotten malt

M 3.5 appropriate. Light body

O 2.5. Didn't ever enjoy it.

Overall: Brand-new 2011 beer from Balashi, Aruba's national brewery. If Corona Lite had sex with Miller Genuine Draft Lite, this beer would be their progeny. Not at all worth it.

A: bottles are only like 10oz! WTF? Bottle appearance is of a underfed, pasty Corona. Very, very thinly yellow colored "beer". Medium carbonation.

S: just like Corona. Lemony grass, sour-smelling.

T: JUST like a cross between Corona and Miller Genuine Draft. Both Lites. This is not a good beer by any measure.

M: is their one? No taste = no aftertaste.

Medic25 is absolutely spot on the money: this beer is frantically YELLING for a lime wedge or Something to give it flavor. Yikes & yucks! Get it whilst you can, this "beer" won't be around long...

A new offering from Aruba's national brewery. The marketing seems geared towards a Corona-type vibe, and the taste corresponds. Color is a clear straw yellow with a clean white head. Slightly sweet aroma. Taste is very clean and light, a very bland corn flavor with the slightest bit of bitterness. Finishes very cleanly, since there was little flavor to start with. This beer is calling out for a lime wedge.
