1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Drank too many of these to count while in Puerto Rico last week, because it is basically the only thing available down there. Don’t even think of finding a Dogfish Head or anything like that. This is a bud light type beer. I guess they like it because its always so damn hot down there, anything heavier would only slow you down.

Ok... I’ll try to be fair because I am Puertorican and highly supportive of this beer. Also let’s not take into consideration all the awards the beer has gotten. It’s a beer with little appearance and little aroma. But the beer was not created for that. It’s a party beer. Appropriate for long nights of drinking because u won’t get that heaviness feeling u would get with other beers. Perfect for the beach for its refreshing nature. After all it was made and marketed only for PR for years. It just recently started exporting it. Try it to other light beers in the market and ill guarantee you’ll like this one better. Don’t expect much just enjoy it.

This stuff is everywhere in Puerto Rico, and pretty cheap ($4-5 for a six-pack). Not bad as light beers go. Crisp, dry, and watery with a bit of corniness. Nothing special, but refreshing for a day on the beach.

Utterly lower-middling; but very fun when served ice cold on a San Juan porch

UPDATED: APR 18, 2013 The ’Miller Lite’ of Puerto Rico. Available everywhere, seemingly in every store, bar and restaurant. Limp, lifeless, soulless beer. Nothing distinctive at all. Drink only as a last resort.

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

When I lived in Puerto Rico, this was my go to beverage of choice. But, then again, I didn’t have many other options... Reminiscent of Corona Light, but better in my opinion.

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.
