2.26/5 rDev -15.7%
Completely clear, and a very pale yellow color, this seems to be more along the lines of what I've come to expect from the mass-produced international beers of what is arguably the worst style out there, as the fizz that would be a head never actually forms more than a thin layer (which is something) and it ends up looking like tainted seltzer, though a tiny spot or three remains in places.
Vegetal and husky, this goes one direction of two terrible options these sometimes take; at least it's not sickeningly sweet, though it's got that awful "cooked" sort of smell that translates to the taste, though less aggressively. Grains come out more strongly then, building up a sort of astringent nature into the finish. Malts and the vaguest hint of herbal hops flavor try to save it and give it just the slightest boost from the aroma.
Much more on the dry side than many, this one builds up to a sort of chalky finish. That said, it's crispness is consistently strong, and it's not horribly unclean. It avoids stickiness, which is something.

2.65/5 rDev -1.1%
Poured from 12oz green bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: light golden hue with a moderate effervescence and no haze. Head is a thin finger of frothy white foam. Par for the style.
Smell: adjunct-y malt aroma, but too light to be truly offensive.
Taste: a bit of plasticy flavor and a little bit of corn pops on this otherwise lightly flavored brew. Not the best adjunct lager out there, and not the worst.
Mouthfeel: light body with a decent carbonation which is refreshingly fizzy.
Overall: eh. I wouldn't seek this beer out again, unless I found myself in the DR and wanted a local quaff on the beach.
