Not a pilsener...more like a pale lager, smell of cereal , corn, hay, and a couple of stale hops.. taste is more of the same, with a sticky palate...average cutting grass beer.

Basically Puerto Rican Heineken but a little sweater. Served to me in a bottle so I couldn't really judge this beer but I think it would fall right about where I rated it. Not bad in a pinch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Yellow, fizzy. Slightly more grain flavour than the Medalla Lite. A very special craft, indeed.

pkbites (643) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Average looking yellow pour. Aroma and flavor is grainy as all hell. No hop presence. Soury, slight skunk. Heavy duty grain. This is not good. Bottle in San Juan, PR.

unclemattie (4035) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Green, 12oz bottle. Made in PR. Yellow pour, no head, lots of fizz. Aroma of corn meal, steamed vegetables, skunk, grass. Tastes of corn, sweet, some skunk hops. Light-Medium bodied for a pale lager. Better than most other pale lagers down here. (3767)

nearbeer (3432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2013
12 oz. Clear golden with a lasting creamy head. Nose is creamed corn and a hint of skunk. Taste is scorched popcorn and a touch of rubber. Light body has medium-high carbonation and finishes dry.

A little better than Medalla light. A little harder to find - is the slight rarity factor affecting my rating here? Hmmm...

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
This is a beer is a marketing marvel, and a sub-par brewing product. Modelled after mass market light lagers, it tastes just as bland.

kramer (4688) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear very pale yellow body with a minimal wispy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty bad, smells slightly skunked with lots of corn and a little soggy pale malt. The flavor is a mirror of what comes out on the nose, lots of corn, some slight grassiness, and some slightly light struck hop extract notes on the finish. Very light bodied and watery with fizzy prickly carbonation. Kinda reminds me of about half of all Heiniken bottles that I’ve had. Not so good.
