1.8/5  rDev -30.2%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

A: Clear pale yellow hue with very light 1/2 finger white fizzy head.

S: Buttery aroma with slight hints of bitterness in the nose

T: Slightly sweet buttery flavor. Trying to search for more to this beer, but it is not complex at all.

M: Very thin beer. Carbonation dissipates very quickly and is barely detectable at the end.

D: Decent drinkability, if you like bland beer.

12oz bottle

A- Green 12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a pale golden yellow color with a thin fizzy white head.

S- The aroma is pretty light and faint with some grainy malt along with a touch of hay and a hint of hops.

T- The taste is very light bodied with some pale malts and a clean finish.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

D- Overall, Presidente Light is a decent light beer but nothing I have any interest in purchasing again.

Presidente Light has a medium, fluffy, white head, some lacing, and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. The aroma is faint, but one can detect, with deep inhalations, sweet barley malt and a touch of avocado. The flavor is light, of course, but sweet bread and a shade of hop bitterness shows up. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Presidente Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and imminently drinkable. If there is such a thing as a perfect light beer, this could be it.

A had a few of them from a bottle during my vacation in DR just to try it out, since I've never seen the light version in the states.

It's simply a watery version of Presidente. Light yellow in color. Not very much carbonation or aroma. Taste is typical for a light beer with no presence of hops and mouthfeel is, well, watery as I said. Drinkability is poor because you just don't feel like you've had a beer (even at adjunct standards) after you drink one of these.

12 oz bottle pours a clear yellow with a large cap of pillowy white head. Retention and lace, like Presidente heavy, are both fantastic for an adjunct lager.

Nose smells like a bag of Corn Nuts with some sulfurous lager yeast and some weird lemon-juice aroma.

Taste is extremely light on the malt, cereal grains at best. That odd, lemony sourness is still there. Certainly not a lot of flavor for any flaws to hide behind. Its not very good, stick with the standard Presidente while you are relaxing in Punta Cana.
