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.

Pale yellow colored beer with a slowly fading head.Aroma is grainy.Taste is light and fresh.Goes down very easy.It has no special hops or malts but when you get a light beer you already know that.Perfect for hot summer days or those autumn football games.I would recommend and purchase again.

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.

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.

Poured on tap at a mexican restaraunt in Florida. The beer is an extremely bright yellow color that is crystal clear, with a moderate amount of carbonation bubbling. Thin layer of white, foamy film of head that actually retains and clings to the glass as you drink. Slight citrus effervescence to the aroma, with some toasty malt characteristics, as well. Flavor is extremely light cereal flavors and slight citrus tart on the end. Crisp and light in mouth, with a slight roundness most lagers don't have. Almost watery, with no discernable aftertaste, and your typical crisp finish for the style. Goes with anything for food, just like a glass of water...definitely better options out there friends...
