3.18/5  rDev +14.8%

Straw yellow with a loose, white head with decent last leaving chunks of foam.

Smell is sweet, some vegetable.

Taste is generic, sweet, corny.

Mouthfeel is a little watery, lacking crispness.

Drinkability is okay. Fizzy yellow beer that beats the Caribbean heat, but there are (slightly) better options here. Super stupid slogans, on the box, something like “beer brewed by a guy from a recipe from another guy.” The label says “The One, and another one, and another one…”

Thanks to a friend for bringing this back from Dominican Republic for me.
22 oz. bottle - philosophical writings in English with some Spanish. A beer for English-speaking/American tourists, I presume.

Pours straw yellow with a foamy, lasting white head. A nice head retention for the style.

The smell is of light grain, some mild cooked corn and a slightly floral touch.

The taste is not much - inoffensive, but almost not there at all. There is a mild, subtle light malt sweetness, a touch of cooked, buttered corn, maybe a vague floral note to balance sweetness. It has a crisp enough finish. Buttered corn stands out, if anything does.

Light-bodied and on the slick side of things. Light, but not overly fizzy (more watery than fizzy).

Not a bad refresher, Slick and largely inoffensive. Could use more flavor - there are better, and much worse, of the style.

I am from DR and i even like this beer much than Presidente. Because it has a combination of ingredients and flavors a little more balanced than the others.

This beer is good to someone who has never taste a Pils beer in DR cuz it is smooth, soft and gentle, without that strong bitter at the end that scare a lot of people.

A nicely branded beer for the Dominican beer market. Pretty much the same as their other offerings though. Bottle on my last night at the resort. From notes.

A - Light golden pour with one finger of soapy white head. Bright. Lot's of carbonation and decent drapes of lace with a film of retention.

S - Grainy with a slight herbal hop, plastic, fresh cut grass, slightly boring.

T - Grainy with herbal hop that is mild but there. Not offensive. Gentle balance blends the two elements nicely.

M - Well carbonated, light to medium bod with a crisp mildly grainy/hoppy finish.

O/D - Good. A decent Carribean lager considering the ingredients list includes corn and sugar. Better than average for an adjunct lager.

1.73/5  rDev -37.5%

This wonderful brew concluded my trip to the Dominican Republic.

A- Pours a crystal clear gold color with a thin white head. Just like Presidente.

S- Not a whole lot different than Presidente. With grass, corn and stale bread.

T- There is a really strong powerful stale bread taste to this brew. This horrible taste dominates everything. Not a fan of this at all.

M- Very light in body and a ton of carbonation.

O- By far the worst beer of our trip. I didn't even finish this one.
