Half finger head with poor retention on a Straw yellow body. No lacing. Bitter aroma with corn and pale malts. Flavor is a little musty and tart with light malts. Moderate to high carbonation and heavier side of light body. Overall refreshing but very plain.

(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.

Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with a finger of head. It looks nice.

It smells like corn, rice and crayolas. Weird.

A nice sharp bitterness at first, mellows out to a sweeter finish. Simple but fairly good.

Crisp and clean texture, moderate carbonation.

A descent adjunct lager.

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.

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.
