This was actually pretty good. Before my wife and I checked into the hotel we went to a supermarket and picked up some snacks and drinks. I was set on buying their other local beer and just making due with that. But when i saw this and the word craft next to it, I was sold. A Puerto Rican craft beer. I was not disappointed it's got the body of a well done lager the taste of one to. Thicker mouth feel when compared to the other beers of PR. I really liked it.

Previous review hit the nail on the head(no pun intended)
This was made to directly compete with Stella Artois, Peroni, & Heineken. All 3 have a very strong presence in Puerto Rico, but carry a pretty high price tag. I didn't spent too much time looking at prices, but a quick look says its about 50% cheaper at local bars and liquor stores because its a local brew. It was about $3 at local bars and $8/6pk at liquor stores.
Its not my style, that's for sure. If you're into the above mentioned 3 Imports, give this a try as a cheaper alternative. That's about as much credit as I can give it.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer has a crystal clear deep yellow body with a thin snow white film that fades to a ring and a gentle carbonation of big bubbles.

S- The clean aroma has only a dry grain hint when it is very warm.

T- The clean soft corn note has a hint of sweetness in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This beer is the big brother to Medalla and it shows with the faintest of sweetness and almost a hint of grain in the nose. This beer is light and empty, but there are no off flavors either.
