We had to take a sip before taking a photo
- Amstel bright (Curaçao)
- Balashi (Aruba)
- Corona Light
- Heineken Light
- Polar (Venezuela)
No surprise to see Amstel and Heineken because they're from Holland. But what caught my eye was Amstel bright. No, that's not a typo.
Amstel bright was originally brewed in Curaçao, and is now brewed and exported out of Holland. The taste of this lager is 'lighter' than an Amstel Light, and somewhat similar to Corona Light. Amstel bright is the perfect beach beer: crisp and refreshing with 5% ABV. It's normally served with a slice of lime but tastes fine on its own.
Balashi is another lager brewed in Aruba. Very light and must be served very cold. I'll admit, it was very watery and bland. Not my favorite especially after being introduced to Amstel bright.
From Venezuela is the Pilsener type beer called Cerveza Polar. Another easy drinking beer with little flavor.
Clearly, my favorite beer was Amstel bright. A smooth beer perfect for the beach.
