look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance-golden off color with minimal head and lacing, ok clarity.

Smell-normal adjunct stuff like corn and grain with a weird sour kick that wasn't very pleasent at all.

Taste-very thin, grainy on the toungue, goes down easily but with no more flavor than any American adjunct lager of the same type.

Mouthfeel-thin but pleasent enough, not too much going down in the first place.

Drinkability-while any lager on the hot beautiful days in the Dominican Republic will work, if faced with the choice stick with Presidente.

Overall-while I heard from some that this stuff is better than Presidente, the one I sampled was very dissapointing and not even close to Presidente, which isn't exactly the king of all beers itself. Pass on this one, if your in the D.R. stick to Presidente, if your anywhere else, stick with something else, as there are way too many beers of the same type that outrank this.

A - light yellow with some little gold in it. Very clean.
S - pretty much sweet and sugary, however not interesting at all.
T - little malt with sweet flavor, but nothing much more. At least some bitterness at the end.
M - very low body, not complex. Medium carbonation at the end but carbonates for a very short time.
D - pretty easy to drink

Overall it is not a good beer but if you're in Dominican republic, you'll probably have not much choices.

Appears to but another piss/straw yellow pilsner, very clear. The smell was quite unassuming. Only with deep inhilation could one trully smell anything, and then the smell was very stale. The taste was sweet but was interrupted by the almost over carbonation. Again with the carbonation so high, the moth feel was "bubbly" and slightly sticky sweet - this is beer not champagne, right? Some how this beer still turns out to be quite drinkable once you become used to it's "style". Or maybe it was only enjoyable after one too many Cuba Libres?

12 oz bottle. Pours golden, with a large, foamy, white head, good lacing. Aroma is of grassy hops, maybe some malt in the background. Light, slightly crisp body. Flavor of hops and biscuit malt, practically no finish. Exceeded my very low expectation.

Pours a gold straw color wirg a pathetic head and too little lace. The aroma is of barley malt, corn and leafy noble hops. The corn is more pronounced in the taste than the aroma. Delicate malt mingles with very light hops behind the corn. The mouthfeel is thin and a bit metallic. The finish is herbal and not very bitter.

This is only slightly tastier than a Canadian macro. I guess it would be good in a hot tropical climate, but the corn taste is too strong. Not worth seeking out.

Had a 330ml bottle brought back for me from the Dominican, green glass led to a little skunking! But trying to ignore that, this seemed like your typical pale lager. But to its credit I thought I could taste some pilsner malt which blended in nicely. No hops, but certainly some malt for sure. Carbonation low, texture slightly offset. Yea, no surprises here, Im sure I would have enjoyed it more could if they brought me back some of the sun and warm weather of the Dominican to go with it!
