What can I say that hasn't been said or wasn't expected?
Its Puerto Ricos answer to Watery American brews like Bud Light and Miller Lite which from my experience has no presence in PR. It seems like competition for Coors Light which has a strong presence on the Island. Its watery, doesn't taste like much, and much be consumed ice cold or that nasty stale flavor shines.
It was a bit cheaper than Coors Light at local spots, so you can save a $1 here and there.
Generally around $1/can at liquor stores and $2.50 at bars. If you're curious about local brews, give Magna a try for some more flavor.
The kicker was seeing it priced at $5/pint at the PR Airport. A deal when Imports were in the $7-9 range.
It is what it is...Cheap and drinkable. Much like a Corona in Mexico.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Pale straw colored with a short white head that dissipates quickly. Crystal clear with low carbonation.

Nose
Lightly bready and caramelly with touches of apple cider.

Taste
Lightly bready sweet malts with dollops of caramel and a handful of raw grains. Hints of corny adjuncts and just a nip of some nondescript hop notes.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp and clean.

Overall
This Light Lager is A-Okay! This is much better than it's American counterparts.
