0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Aroma-Slight grassiness and the smell of carbonation. Appearance-Very pale, no head. Taste - Wan flavor influenced by slight malt and fillers (rice). Palate- Fizzy like a soft drink. Light briny mouthfeel mixed with baking soda. Overall- Think back to your preschool days, when the teacher tried to get the Kool-Aid to go further by doubling the water while halving the sugar. That explains this beer. Puerto Rico should thank God that they make good rum, because they are in no danger of producing a good beer.

bottle brought back from Puerto Rico by the lovely Linda. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a thin white head. Nose is skunky grain. taste is yucky. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with good carbonation and a slight bitterness. Blech! Drainpour.

I admit I drank a few of these in Puerto Rico and in the hot sun it worked OK, but really a pretty bad lager.

Outstanding beer. The only beer that I drink when I go to Puerto Rico. It needs to be sold here in the United States!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours like carbonated urine underneath a white, fizzy head from the 12oz. bottle, but hey, when in Puerto Rico you gotta go local, right?: Aroma of corn and malts dampened by lots of water. Flavor is similar, but sweeter than I expected. Something unexpected! Bonus point for that. Drinkability: Just horrible. Rebuy: Only in Puerto Rico. #268 on 04022010, DG.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden in color with a light soapy head. Crisp, tinny malt aroma. Very little body and light in mouthfeel. Sweet malty flavor. Non-offensive and refreshing for a day in PR.

Had this on my recent trip to Puerto Rico, the most widely available beer there. The color was pale golden. The head was thin, fizzy, and white. The aroma was a little yeasty. The flavor was corny. The palate was thin bodied and watery. The finish was abrupt and lacking. It was nice to have this beer on a really hot day but just that.

It has to be kept in mind that this is a LIGHT beer. As such, to make a direct comparison to other beers is unfair. Compared with other light beers, I find this beer ranks right among them. It is a good light beer. This is also the unofficial national beer of Puerto Rico (for now) and is very much a part of everyday culture. Respect. But, when rated amongst all beers, I find it will always have the lower hand. Aroma to me was below average. No hops. No hops even in taste (nor are they meant to be there.) Taste I found slightly cooked and sweet. My taste buds almost registered a buttery taste but it was right at the threshold so acceptable. Palate light thin and fizzy but with large bubbles that rapidly disappeared as did the foam. In a nutshell, a fine light beer, especially for the tropics.
