I traveled through western PR last winter and this beer was everywhere. It is certainly better than Corona or Heineken, both of which left me feeling tired in the Puerto Rican heat. This beer is lighter than anything I ordinarily drink by several degrees, but it’s just the thing when you’re having a barbeque on the beach.

Pours straw colored with a creamy white head. Smells of straw, hay, some earty hints, dry malt. Tastes of rice, water, some pepper, some citrussy touches, hints of caramel. Not bad for a light beer.

Just came back from PR and I must say I really enjoyed the Medalla light. It has all the simpleness of a mass produced brew, it was very lite and very drinkable. Especially in the heat after snorkeling it helped rinse the salt water out of my mouth....

A 12 oz can from the Hampton inn in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I had this while lounging next to the pool with my wife. When you drink in San Juan, this is the only Puerto Rican beer you’ll find. Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager color and appearance. Aroma like most cheaper american lagers but not really offensive. Fairly easy to drink but does have a hint of cheap american malt liquor in the background that makes it come across a little unrefined. Not much bitter attributes and well behaved for the most part, with background metallic hints. Decent carbonation. Finish has that mild american malt liquor alky linger.

I am from Puerto Rico and I can safely say this beer is horrible. Smells like aluminium/metal and tastes like dishwater. We make excellentrum and we should stick to that. I guess there can be worse...

Can hand delivered from another co-worker from PR. Pours a pale streaw yellow with a minimal head. the body was surprisingly full for an island brew. Sweet and whispy. No hops whatsoever. Finish fast and empty. I am solidly defining this beer as a "Lattitude/ attitude determinate beer" Even though it was humid muggy and generally uncomfortable last evening in Pennsylvania when I consumed it, I am certain that it would have tasted better even in the face of a hurricane if I was sitting in Puerto Rico. A pleasant experience but a bit like keystone light in a can.
