Created to compete with the likes of Heinekin, et al, this one certainly hit the mark. Problem is that Heinekin is terrible. I'd much rather go with Medalla Lights or some Presidente from the next island over, if I'm looking to pair with some empanadillas or just hanging on the beaches.

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.
