Presidente is a sparkling, crystal clear pale straw colored cerveza with a thin white head that has good retention and lacing. It smells like someone ran over a skunk. It's very light bodied and watery with a scratchy finish. It tastes like funk. Corn and funk. And skunk. I guess someone had this tiny green bottle under a grow light for a while.

I tried this at Bison County the other day, after the bartender told me that the manager actually took it off of one patron's bill after tasting it and seeing how awful it was. I couldn't even get through a small glass of it.

A: Pours a clear gold yellow with a thin white foam. How exciting.

S: Imagine the worst thing you've ever smelled. Then put it in an already bad beer. Lots of skunk and that's about it.

T: See the smell. It was awful. No hints of malt, hops, or anything. Just a horrible taste that I couldn't wait to get out of my mouth.

M: Crisp! It was cold. I'll give it that much.

D: Don't drink this beer. Ever. Please. I beg of you. It was downright awful. Perhaps in the Dominican Republic, where it's fresh, it's mildly better, but man, this was one horrible beer.

I spent 2 weeks in the Dominican Republic and this was the only beer I could get. Unless I can travel with a backup of good beer, I would have a hard time going back, though the beaches made up for it...

The appearance is golden clear that resembles a typical American light lager. The smell is almost unbearable with big time corn and no hoppiness. The taste is as bad as it smells, lots of corn and light malts, nothing else. The mouth fell is pretty dole. Overall, itself a terrible beer. Even then, I drank a lot of it since I do love beer (even bad beer) but despite the stated 5% ABV, never felt it.

Stay away unless its your only choice...

First had: bottle at some Cuban restaurant in Manhattan

It was the only alternative to Corona, and ended up being a slightly better selection. Slightly.

Poured a clear straw color...uhoh, I see where this is going...carbonation, and a thin fizzy head that fizzled out to nothing. Mostly grains and staleness in the aroma. Weak taste of grains, corn, metallic hops. Bitter and very unflavorful, very light, and not very drinkable at all, unless bland and unimaginative and adjunct is your thing.

Clear straw colored beer with good carbonation. White head, not much retention and very little lace.
Smells bad, astringent grassyness and sour hay-like.
Taste just as bad as it smells, far to sour to even be called citric.
Feels pretty watery, lacks any kind of body that would make it stand out from water.
If you are into sucking feet this is probably the beer for you. I couldn't stand it. Maybe I had a beer gone bad.

Well, a Dominican Republic beer. Let's try it.
Full golden color, almost amber. Ugly foam, cocacola-like, quickly falling to zero.
The smell: corn, sugared water. Macro lager.
Quite useless.
Unsignificant taste, washed out. No body at all. No personality. Nothing.
I just can't finish it.
