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.

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.

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.

It's a ultra light beer meant to be drank couple of degrees above freezing in really hot climates as athirst quencher. Not as horrible as the score reflects. But there's nothing special about it either. It's pale bland bready fizzy and yellow... When in Puerto Rico on a boat or at the beach you can down 6 easy and be ok.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Undrinkable...unless you know how to make a good beer-a-colada. Start with a huge cup, 1/4 full of ice. Pour in 2 cans of Meddy Light, squeeze in 1/2 lime, and add Tequilla. Then add more Tequilla. Stir and enjoy (ok, so it is actually a beer margarita, but beer-a-colada is more fun to say. Especially after your 3rd one) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medalla Light was made for the type of beer that is commonly drank in Puerto Rico. The weather is hot all year around. So, Puerto Ricans like light pale lagers. They are not bitter ale drinkers or Belgian beer drinkers. The beer is good, tasty and refreshing.

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.

Not offenssive; light and refreshing on a very hot day. Better drunk quite chilled; if you let it warm, you’ll regret it!

I hate to say that I do not like this beer especially being Puerto Rican. I couldn’t tell the difference between this beer and water. I guess it is a good beer for someone who likes an extremely light brew.
