Previous review hit the nail on the head(no pun intended)
This was made to directly compete with Stella Artois, Peroni, & Heineken. All 3 have a very strong presence in Puerto Rico, but carry a pretty high price tag. I didn't spent too much time looking at prices, but a quick look says its about 50% cheaper at local bars and liquor stores because its a local brew. It was about $3 at local bars and $8/6pk at liquor stores.
Its not my style, that's for sure. If you're into the above mentioned 3 Imports, give this a try as a cheaper alternative. That's about as much credit as I can give it.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer has a crystal clear deep yellow body with a thin snow white film that fades to a ring and a gentle carbonation of big bubbles.

S- The clean aroma has only a dry grain hint when it is very warm.

T- The clean soft corn note has a hint of sweetness in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This beer is the big brother to Medalla and it shows with the faintest of sweetness and almost a hint of grain in the nose. This beer is light and empty, but there are no off flavors either.

Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with a finger of head. It looks nice.

It smells like corn, rice and crayolas. Weird.

A nice sharp bitterness at first, mellows out to a sweeter finish. Simple but fairly good.

Crisp and clean texture, moderate carbonation.

A descent adjunct lager.

Half finger head with poor retention on a Straw yellow body. No lacing. Bitter aroma with corn and pale malts. Flavor is a little musty and tart with light malts. Moderate to high carbonation and heavier side of light body. Overall refreshing but very plain.
