1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Presentation: 11 oz. can with the packaging date printed on the bottom. Served in a Samuel Adams pint glass.
App: Very clear yellow color. Develops a soapy, 1 finger head that disappears quickly. Leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The smell is faint, and underwhelming. There’s mainly hints of malt, corn and grains in there.
Taste: It’s quite bland, but it balances the malt sweetness and hop bitterness well. It’s not unpleasant at all. There’s some grain in the background as well.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, as expected. Average carbonation. Smooth and a bit watery. Easy to drink.
Overall: As one would expect from an American light lager, nothing special. Just something very drinkable to chug down cold when eating something or when nothing else is available. As a beer, or even in it’s segment, this is a middle of the road brew, not terrible, but not particularly good either.

Just had to try this new Light Lager offering in Puerto Rico. Disappointing; created for the masse$. Big marketing effort focusing on national pride, but no pride at all in producing a quality product.

Easily the worst beer of Puerto Rico. I drain poured this in favour of a Medalla Light - go figure. Tastes sour and wacky. Makes me think about bad life choices and such. Cheap though, if that’s your thang.
