Beer added by: Noelito76 on 09-06-2005

“La suave con carácter”, Presidente Light es la primera cerveza light elaborada en República Dominicana. Esta propuesta, con un menor contenido de alcohol y un sabor suave que preserva la herencia de calidad de Presidente, está dirigida a un público con carácter y personalidad que disfruta de un producto suave pero que busca el verdadero sabor a cerveza. Prueba de ello es la aceptación que goza entre los consumidores dominicanos desde su salida al mercado en febrero de 2005.

A: Clear pale yellow hue with very light 1/2 finger white fizzy head.

S: Buttery aroma with slight hints of bitterness in the nose

T: Slightly sweet buttery flavor. Trying to search for more to this beer, but it is not complex at all.

M: Very thin beer. Carbonation dissipates very quickly and is barely detectable at the end.

D: Decent drinkability, if you like bland beer.

12oz bottle

A- Green 12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a pale golden yellow color with a thin fizzy white head.

S- The aroma is pretty light and faint with some grainy malt along with a touch of hay and a hint of hops.

T- The taste is very light bodied with some pale malts and a clean finish.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

D- Overall, Presidente Light is a decent light beer but nothing I have any interest in purchasing again.

Presidente Light has a medium, fluffy, white head, some lacing, and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. The aroma is faint, but one can detect, with deep inhalations, sweet barley malt and a touch of avocado. The flavor is light, of course, but sweet bread and a shade of hop bitterness shows up. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Presidente Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and imminently drinkable. If there is such a thing as a perfect light beer, this could be it.

A had a few of them from a bottle during my vacation in DR just to try it out, since I've never seen the light version in the states.

It's simply a watery version of Presidente. Light yellow in color. Not very much carbonation or aroma. Taste is typical for a light beer with no presence of hops and mouthfeel is, well, watery as I said. Drinkability is poor because you just don't feel like you've had a beer (even at adjunct standards) after you drink one of these.

12 oz bottle pours a clear yellow with a large cap of pillowy white head. Retention and lace, like Presidente heavy, are both fantastic for an adjunct lager.

Nose smells like a bag of Corn Nuts with some sulfurous lager yeast and some weird lemon-juice aroma.

Taste is extremely light on the malt, cereal grains at best. That odd, lemony sourness is still there. Certainly not a lot of flavor for any flaws to hide behind. Its not very good, stick with the standard Presidente while you are relaxing in Punta Cana.

I had a party and some one left this landmine in my fridge. Who does that?

Light hay color, white head with fairly good retention for a lager. There's even a few drifts of lace! Still pretty pale and ugly. For what it's worth the bottle art is weak too.

Smells like grain and hay. Taste is sugary with a dry cardboard aftertaste. Not that crisp.

Not as bad as I had feared, but in all fairness, I was very afraid.
