Notes/Commercial Description:
“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.

3.88/5  rDev +62.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled poured into a wide flared tumbler, Presidente is super pale gold with a while head leaving scattered lace.

Smell is, sweet cereals, a little grassy, and a very faint hint of sulfur.

Taste is very simple and bland, there's just a little corn like sweetness. Nothing offensive, clean and simple, which is all I'd expect from the style. The sweetness is light and provides a little character.

Mouthfeel is bone dry, some crispness from the fine carbonation.

Drinkability is high. This beer is made to be drunk all day long in the Caribbean sun, for which I think it's well suited; although I wouldn't no, I'm in Santo Domingo for business, and grabbed the light from the grocery store by mistake. No harm no foul, if anything I'd guess the regular one has a higher likelihood of off-flavors. I'm sure the scores are more based on many BAs distaste for light beers in general rather then how well this one accomplished it objective.

2.16/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from 12oz green bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium-light golden hue with no haze and a very strong effervescence. Head pours a finger of frothy white foam which quickly dissipates. 'Sok.

Smell: wet grain, adjuncts, and bad memories. Not actively disgusting, but still quite a turn-off.

Taste: a lot like the aroma. At first, there's little flavor at all; then, however, the wet grain and bad-beeriness just take over. Blech.

Mouthfeel: light body with enough carbonation to remain interesting. Not special, though.

Overall: this beer holds little interest for me. It reminds me of drinking bad beers in college or while tailgating. That said, it's not actively horrible -- just not a great beer.
