I was introduced to this beer in Punta Cana, DR when on vacation in 2016, and the resort seemed to think this was the only available beer, since it was the only one available!

Picked up a 6-pack at the grocery store, and poured a cold one into a snifter. Look is golden clear, with a 1/4" white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is spicy, hops and skunk notes mostly. Taste is clean initially, light corn and a little malt come thru, but transitions mid-mouthful to a hoppy taste with a little spice. Beer feels very light, is carbonated well, and leaves a faint aftertaste. Beer is refreshing overall.

This is comparable to other light pilsener beers, and I do prefer this to the other macro brews. Recently this beer has been on the shelves in many places, and at $7.39 a 6 pack is a good value-- a little more than the American macro brews but this also tastes better than those beers. Recommended for a hot summer day for sure.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pilsner glass. 2" white foamy head drops slowly with soap-like lacing. Color is clear straw with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma is mild but includes pleasant bread dough, cracker, and floral notes. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with a mostly dry finish. Flavor is also mild, though not unpleasant. Grain notes, some sweetness akin with biscuit dough, with a hop bite in the finish of the taste. Overall an easygoing light lager.

Lager, island style. A bit sweet like Japanese labels. Metal hints are not distinctive. It’s perfectly OK if you are in an all-inclusive Carribean resort. It is weird to drink IPAs in such environment. Otherwise skip it as any other lager.

Why do we all need to label all Adjunct Lagers as "poor?" Of course it is not a craft beer or something high class but still it can be something to enjoy at the right place and the right time.
For example, tonight it went really well with chickpea crurry. What I like about adjuncts is that they don't really have any remarkable taste. This one has a slight fruity, apple-like tone with a slight bitterness to it, but still it is okay to drink it, especially with hot food or on a hot summer day.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

Look is clear light gold, not much head and zero retention 2.75

Smell is sweet malts, biscuit and caramel. Little to no hops. 2.00

Taste brings those sweet malts forward even more than on the nose.There is a definite maize taste to this one. 1.75

Feel is light with high carbonation. Not really much of finish, except to leave a corn aftertaste. 1.75

Overall,this is not a good beer, but sitting on the beach in the Caribbean makes it much more tolerable. One bottle of this is enough though. 1.75
