1.53/5 rDev -35.7%
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.

1.65/5 rDev -30.7%
Appearance: Nothing offensive, but then again nothing special. Poured with a finger of head that left slim lacing and didn't retain. Pale gold that you'd expect from a light lager, with a lot of carbonation going on.
Smell: Not as much skunk as I would expect given the green bottle and sunny climate. However it's still there, and behind it nothing but some light musty grain.
Taste: I was honestly hoping for watered down Presidente. Instead I got an awful wet cardboard taste that turned to a taste I can only describe as metallic clay. I wasn't able to finish it.
Mouthfeel: It tastes like drinking seltzer water, as the carbonation is out of control. In addition, that awful metallic aftertaste lingers. The only thing I will give it is that the shift between tastes is a brief refreshing reprieve.
Drinkability: It could quench your thirst I suppose, but the seltzer feeling making is hard to keep down and the carbonation leaves you belching and/or bloated. It's rare that a light beer fares so poorly here.
Final Thoughts: Light beers should be more subdued then their standard counterparts. This one manages to be more painfully aggressive then the standard Presidente. I think this is because whatever elements made Presidente decent (I would assume the amount of malt) seem absent here giving the seltzer taste that is hard to get down. If you go down to the Dominican, stick to the standard Presidente, as drinking this stuff is sure to leave you in a bad mood.

1.8/5 rDev -24.4%
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.

2.16/5 rDev -9.2%
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.
