Hazy gold with two fingers of white head. Good amount of lace.
Smell is all malt.
Taste is malty with some herbal hops in the finish.
Mouthfeel is light to medium and medium carbonation. Finish is mildly sweet.
Overall a malty and tasty lager.

From the bottle, it pours a very clear, very light golden with a small head. Very light in the nose. Very light in the mouth. Just out of the sweltering heat, a chilled bottle is great, but not so much otherwise.

Just got back from Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and it's either Presidente or they actually had Budweiser this year for the first time. This beer is a lot better out of a bottle that is ice cold, it just has a crisper tastes to it and I could drink all day this way. In the resort it was either out of a can or tap and not that cold,both not good this way but you can drink it. It has a pilsner smell and taste to it, brought some back I purchased in the airport on the way home and will share with a few friends. It was better than the Budweiser bottle to bottle if they sold it where I live I would defiantly buy the bottles stick in the ice chest and drink all day goes very good with lobster or any seafood.

The only beer available at my hotel on a recent visit to the Dominican Republic. A very average lager. Not much at all to the aroma, just some malts and grains. Tastes of sweet malts, grain and a hint of hops. Drier than most AAL's. Watery mouth feel, light bodied. Drink it fast while ice cold otherwise what ever flavor is present disappears.

I drank an ungodly number of these in the Dominican republic. One bar served them in a bottle, these tasted great in the heat. Poured from a refilled milk carton, not so good. Dry, extremely light bodied, and slightly odd tasting, this is a bad lager, but if you find yourself on a beach with few other choices, you'll drink it. Or swing for the pina colada.

Had this in the Dominican, I believe it has a higher alcohol content there than in the U.S. The DR is sweltering, they serve this ice cold, it's the only beer option, and it is strong. These factors may have contributed to my positive review.

Had this at our resort in Punta Cana where the beer choices were Presidente or Presidente and if you didn't like those you could have Presidente. So this is a situational beer, and IMHO not really as bad as some have reported. You can't drink hard liquor 24/7 (for very long anyway) and you can't drink the water so this was a not too bad substitute for those situations where you needed something cold and quick and maybe to wash down a meal. I've had worse.

Cooked veggie smell and taste with a enough of noble-type hop flavor and skunk to remind me of a pilsener. I wouldn't call it a pilsener, but it reminds me of one. Off flavors make this one of the lesser beers from south of the border. Will not be having it again.

Taste: crisp, thin, some bitter hop some salty. Nose has mellow hop aroma. Gold, clear, with a very carbonate foam, not much lace. Medium lite beer for hot weather.

Looks and tastes as a mass produced Pilsner should. Smells a little more sulfury than most. Green bottle and I think this was slightly skunked or stale. Whatevs it's vacation
