Poured from a bottle into a shaker, the beer is a pale, copper-gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and no substantial head. Aromas of tangy floral and sweetness, with a toasted grain backbone. Fairly muted, and fairly standard. Flavors are extremely muted, and the increased carbonation provides a sharpness that makes the drinkability dip a bit, which is surprising for an island style lager. Toast, with buttery notes, and that's about it. Sharp, light, crisp bodied, but too much so. The aftertaste is more of the tangy sweet and floral, with that buttery character still kicking around. Light, effervesced, clean aftertaste. I can see why this has never come stateside.

Similar to Corona but bottle is smaller. I'm bringing my own cans of real beer at the end of this month. Aruba was great wasteland for Craft beer 2 years ago when I went last.

Poured from a clear bottle that says "Drink it Ice Cold." Yes, to avoid having to actually taste it. Pours a clear light golden with only the slightest white head that disappears quickly. The nose consists of skunky grains. The taste is marginally better, with biscuitous bready notes. The mouth is light, and goes down easy. Roughly equal with Corona or any of the mass-produced pale lagers/cervezas. I can say it's any worse than they are, but neither is it better.

Enjoyed at casa tua restaurant in Aruba from bottle

A. Don't have a glass to pour it in so it's hard to judge appearance. Perfectly clear golden color. Head is white and seems to stick around in the bottle. Unable to judge lacing

S. grAiny but not incredibly grassy. Slightly skunky but not as bad as I expected. No hope on the nose.

T. 4
Very refreshing when enjoyed cold. The skunky smell doesn't really carry through on the taste. Sweet up front and slightly bitter and grainy on the finish. Even As the beer warms it remains inoffensive as a cerveza

M. 4.

Crisp and refreshing. Light body with medium carbonation. The medium carbonation is refreshing compared to the heavy carbonation of light lagers

O. 4.

A good shot at the cerveza style. Does well to stand up to the task.

10 oz had in St. Maarten.

Pours light gold with some white suds for a head.

Smells like sugar and light barley malts.

Light watery barley malt flavor.

Light body with a crisp carbonation.

Very boring and unmemorable. Its not bad, just not at all interesting.
