This is the first time I had this beer since my trip to Puerto Rico about a decade ago. I remember drinking little 10 oz. cans on the beach. Anyway, poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some hints of grains. Taste is light and really bland. Some corn, not much else. Feels light in the mouth and overall, nothing offensive, and fine on a hot day, but greatly lacking in flavor.

I am fairly certain I could make this beer. All I need is water and some light syrup. There really is nothing there. But.....I love it. I am usually sitting on a beach in Puerto Rico or being dragged into the ocean to die by the undertow when I am drinking it (the ocean water is a little higher quality than the beer).....but it is perfect. This beer should never be exported from the island. Craving my next Medalla

It's water with corn and a touch of alcohol. Nothing to it. One can easily tear through 18 of these and binge on delicious fried foods next to the beach..not saying I did...but one could...
