We pour a brew of light straw. It produces a pillowy head of white foam, standing two fingers high. Thick lacing appears around the glass as it departs. Due to the pale coloring, and the lack of sediment, there is complete transparency to the drink. Carbonation looks to be active. The aroma is a smattering of adjuncty grain. There is a slight bittering of barley detectable, and a hint of lime, but the nose is otherwise filled with chalky maltiness. As we sip adjunct malts and corn crash up front. This is bitter, with no other exclusive flavors popping through. The middle becomes less bitter, with a wash of more grain. The finish is more of the same, with a curious plastic bite coming through towards the base of the tongue. The tip of the tongue, at the finish, shows a flash of untraceable sweetness, that otherwise disappears among the adjuncts. The aftertaste breathes with little flavor, as a faded version of the beer's central tasting theme. The body is light and the carbonation is quite high. The mouth is bombarded with carbonation, giving the illusion of a creaminess to each sip, but there is no coating otherwise. The mouth is left wet and slightly puckered. The feel is towards watery. The abv is actually on the high end for the style, and the beer drinks with the simplicity of any adjunct lager.

Overall, what we found most enjoyable about his brew was the look. For the quality of the beer, and the price, there was a surprisingly robust head atop the beer. While the coloring was mute, and the tastes bland, this was one nice thing about a beer that fits comfortably around the same level as its competitors. This would be the type of beer you would expect to cost a buck at the ballgame.

I had this Dominican Republic beer while visiting Zurich, Switzerland and Florence, Italy, which have large Dominican populations. It pours light yellow, over-carbonated, and the head dissipates rapidly with no trace. It has a light malt taste, with traces rice, citric, dish water, and grasses. It has a sweet aftertaste, with very little edge going down. It is not filling and you can easily through a six pack back.

Poured from the bottle into a dimpled mug.

A: Crisp and golden with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Appears to be heavily carbonated, with lots of bubbles rising from the bottom and stuck to the sides of the glass. Looks exactly how I'd expect a tropical lager to look, if not a bit darker.

S: Sort of weak grain with slightly fruity notes. Very small hint of skunking, nothing too offensive.

T: Much like the smell, watery and grainy with slight fruit and even slighter skunk. It's not bad, but it's not really impressive. Not too different from other tropical lagers.

M: Thin with lots of carbonation, true to the style.

O: This is a beer that's very much like other tropical lagers I've had. It's not my favorite, but it's not repulsive, either. It's just kind of there. I've rated it relatively highly because it is, in my opinion and experience, exactly what I expected from a lager exported from a tropical country. It gets lots of points for being true to the style, but loses points subjectively, because as true to style as it is, it's not a style that I'm in love with by any means. Beats the hell out of Corona, though.
