With an average BA rating of 2.73, Presidente is not getting the love it deserves. I do not know the average rating of Adjuncts, put I find this average compared to its peers. in fact only the slightly metallic finish needs work.

Now as for whether the owners (AB InBev) are the most progressive among the Big Boys, that loses Presidente a few points. But the masters did by a brand better and maybe Presidente can teach a think or two.

It grow on ya

I'm not a big fan of pilsner. But Precious wanted to go to a Dominican all-inclusive resort, and the only beer they serve is their local beer El Presidente. They call it "Agua Dominicana", Dominican water. I picked up a six-pack to try it, and I wasn't happy. It was drinkable, but I wasn't crazy about it.

But then came our trip. Five days at a tropical resort in Dominican Republic. The only beer was El Presidente and El Presidente Light. I grew to like it. Then I grew to love it. I was pounding these bad boys. The last day I had ten beers before lunch, and as the bus took as away, l almost had a tear in my eye; almost.

Ok so it's not the best beer in the world, but it is now one of my favs because it reminds me of a great week hanging out with some extremely awesome people.

From notes 10/13/13: Pours a clear deep straw producing 2-4 fingers (depending on the bottle) of soap bubble, white, somewhat to moderately lasting head that leaves variable lacing from little strings and motes to bubbly webs, ring and sheets (depending on the bottle). Aroma is light, grainy malt, cereal, sweet and slightly bready with a faint hint of honey, citrus and grassy hops. Taste is sweet but thin, light white bread and corn a hint of honey, some very thin grassy and lemon hops. Finishes clean and sweet with mild spice that leads into a sweetish aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light bodied, moderate carbonation, thin but smooth. Very drinkable and refreshing but light on character, aroma and taste. My guess is this is a fine example of a Dominican Republican lawn mower or lazy days on the beach type beer.

Your typical beach beer, I guess. A little more muscular at 5% than you might expect. And it does try hard to look good -- moderate head to a full film, surprisingly lots of lace. Clear gold coloured brew, plenty of carbonation action. A proper bite from said carbonation. After that, just ordinary. No nose to speak of and pretty much the taste of water, a hint of hops and then sweet corn as it warms up. Inoffensive, but unremarkable.

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.

One more note about this beer-- I bought a 6-pack recently, and sat the beers in the fridge on their side for a few days to fit in the fridge--WOW what a big mistake! 3 out of the 6 beers violently erupted when popping the bottlecap, with a shitload of foam! Even in the bottle it has about 2" of foam. I have had Presidente beer a few times, but I will not do this again. So-- if you do partake in this beer, store them in the fridge upright please LOL-- I have had a few 6packs before
and none of them have done this.

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.
