“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.

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.

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.

The Dominicans classic, fine for going out and drinking on the beach.

A-Pours corn yellow with an inch of foamy brilliant white head. Coats the glass with rings of thin, pasty lacing.

S-Whoa. Not good. If you were to eat a large pepperoni pizza, wash it down with a gallon of orange juice and then puke it all up, this is what it would probably smell like. Harsh stomach acid stench, green apple, corn. Borderline offensive.

T/M-Just a whole lot of nothing. Watery macro piss. Fermented corn juice. Light bodied with very low carbonation and almost no discernable flavor profile.

O-Hell no.
