330ml bottle. A: Pale colour, small head, retained a layer of foam on top, had
surprising amount of lacing. S: Minimal euro lager like aroma, some hay. T: Fairly
sweet, slight grain and diacetyl. M: Slightly heavy body for style, minimal
carbonation. O: OK for a hot day in the Dominican Republic, nothing offensive about
it.

12oz. bottle poured into pilsener glass.

A: Pours a transparent straw yellow with a fizzy white head that dissipates rather quickly. There is a bubbly cap that retains for a good while, with a few strands of lace left behind. An astronomical amount of bubbles rising to the surface hints that this brew might be a bit overly carbonated... However, this looks substantially more pleasant than most BMC products here.

S: This is where I'm getting worried. Lots of corn and cooked grains. Light hint of malts and a weird hop aroma that I'm not sure if I'm happy to detect or worried about how off it smells.

T: Flavor is a bit on the clean side, inoffensive side, which certainly puts it a notch ahead of BMC. Lots of lightly toasted cereal grain flavors with just a tad hint of malt sweetness in the finish. A dab of hop bitterness lingers on the tongue after the swallow. As the beer approaches room temperature, a bit of a metallic boozy flavor can be detected above the malts in the finish. Not overly offensive, but definitely worth noting that this beer should be consumed fairly chilled.

M: Lots of crispness and a quite effervescent carbonation, but isn't overly carbonated like I feared. A solid body that dwells just below the medium range, but substantially heavier than light lagers. Goes down surprisingly easy.

O: I'm not a fan of pilseners nor lagers/adjunct lagers, but I have to say that I'm honestly impressed by this. I hold Dominican cuisine near and dear to my heart, so when I saw a Dominican brewed beer in the cooler, I had to pick it up to see what it was all about. While it's very much along the lines of a BMC offering, Presidente offers more flavor, a lot more character in the mouth, and serves as a refreshing beverage alongside some summer food. Will definitely be keeping this in mind for my next family BBQ.

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.

Switzerland & Italy May-June 2013
