My favorite light beer. THE beer in my home country. That being said, not something I miss.
Straw color, straw aroma and taste with some earth, some detectable fruits.

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.

Was given a six pack of cans from a co-worker. Super light, probably very refreshing under a palm tree after a nice session at Rincon . I think with this one its all about location.

I'ts just a summer brew for crissakes! Good if you're at the beach and it's over 80 degrees, believe me been there done that. This is not a real beer, just refreshment.

Wow, I didnt think it got this bad. I got a can, or 5, of this stuff in the San Juan Airport and it was pathetic. No taste, no alchohol, no point. Might as well drink a club soda.

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
