1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle sampled in July 2006: Pours a clear pale golden with a thin ring of white bubbles. Aroma of lightly grainy mild pale malt and earthy faint European hops. Body starts very thin, watery and fizzy with very little going on at all. Bland and extremely thin and watery, but I guess that’s what they intended...

Bottle/can/draft in PR. Best served ICE cold on draft. Very simplistic beer with minimal flavor. Not bad, not fantastic.

Thanks to my sister in law for this 10oz can. This wasn’t bad for a light beer. Had a better flavor than the main 3 light beers. Good beer for warm weather.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2008 10oz can. My mother brought this back from Camuy, PR. Bright yellow and clear. no bubbles cascading. Thin light white head. smells like a bag of corn chips. NO FLAVOR! only bubbles.
HERE’S THE RE-RATE:: I had this beer again and on a beautiful day on this enchanted island this beer is sooo damn tasty while chilin’ at la playa. Long live Jobos.

Can/bottle Olde San Juan. Tried Medalla again recently. I forgot how much I enjoyed it when I was in Puerto Rico 15 years ago. Brought me back.

Not a good beer. Just regular fizzy corn water. It’s not skunked with is a plus, but probably the only one.

Awful, just awful. Being from Puerto Rico imagine my distaste with this horrible excuse for a beer. If anyone plans to visit the island, you should check out Old Harbor Brewery in Old San Juan, its a brewpub and their in house beers are excellent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear golden yellow with a thin off-white head. Very grainy sweet aroma. Notes of tart dough. The flavor was sweet and malty but light and thin at the same time. Not much of an after taste with a mild bitter finish. It could have been worse.

The cheapest beer and easy to drink massive quantities. Why bother with any other while in PR? It’s good for you (calories, carbs, alcohol values are impressive). I’d take it over water down there any day. Brings pride and happiness to all. Taste was fine; bland but why care?

Well here it is. The number 1 brew in Puerto Rico. Thin white head of large bubbles. Good carbonation. Reduces quickly. Light malt and bread aroma. Maybe even a little vanilla. Color is a medium gold. Wow, what an absence of flavor. Colored fizzy water. Nothing there or at the finish. Almost like drinking seltzer water. Started ok but a great big disappointment with the flavor. Then again I was not expecting much. Puerto Rico can keep it.
