Brought from my in-laws on their recent trip to the Dominican.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, best before 25.04.14.

Huge white head, good retention with a clear light yellow body. Sides of the glass are coated, not bad. Smell is of lemon, nothing offensive. Taste is average, clean malt; nothing off but nothing that grabs me. Glad there was no skunkiness and i can imagine having a few of these on the beach.

The previous reviewer and my local, in-person trader, tone77, recently dropped off a big-ass bottle of this for me and when I got home this evening, I was ready to open it up and give it a shot.

My aggro pour produced a massive two-plus fingers of dense, bone-white head with excellent retention. Color was a straw-yellow with NE-quality clarity. SRM = 3 to 4. Nose was quite pleasant, especially for the style, to the point that I wondered if it might have been misidentified. A scan of the label's ingredients included "maiz refinado" so it is correct, but they hit upon just the right amount to use in making this beer. It had none of the usual stench of silage and I would have guessed Euro Pale Lager if pressed for an identification. Mouthfeel was medium and it really had a nice, clean lager taste. I wonder why they even bothered with such scheiss as maiz if it was not going to really do much for the beer. I would be entirely remiss if I did not mention the beautiful lacing as the head fell. Finish was semi-dry, very pleasant and refreshing and perfect for a humid late-August afternoon after work. Worth a try if you come across it, but probably not worth seeking out.
