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....

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.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Pours clear pale straw with no head. Highly carbonated. Aroma is not too offensive. Flavor was typical pale lager grainy crap This is a ’when in rome’ beer for me. I wouldn’t drink it unless I was in Puerto Rico.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle: Pours a pale golden with a white fading film of head. The aroma displays some sweet grain/white bread and cereal/maize. Fizzy and thin bodied. Dryish flavor for an adjunct lager, but it’s dominated by a vacant rice flavor and has no hop bitterness. Eh.

Many a bottle and can while vacationing/on business in Puerto Rico. I mean, just look at the description and you can tell what to expect here. Honestly, it was a middle-of-the-road macro light lager. That’s actually a compliment; it’s no less shitty than the rest. Overall nonoffensive but not good. I ultimately chose to go the mojito/pina colada route primarily.

PorterPounder (6143) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl. - Walgreen’s - 12 oz bottle. Pours a very pale golden with nary a trace of head. Slight bubble action to redeem it somewhat. Aroma is that of a stale beer burp and hints of wet metal shavings. Flavor is bland and dull. Some corn notes, a bit of wet cardboard and just a touch of honey sweetness. Slippery thin mouthfeel. Oh well, add a new "country"!

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2012
10 oz can. Pours a clear straw yellow with a minimal fizzy white head that fell to a wispy partial film. The nose is pretty minimal, some light corn and not a whole lot else. The flavor is typical pale lager, rather watery and laced with a light corn undertone. Short, slightly soggy pale malt finish. Light bodied with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Nothing to write he about, but not so bad with the weather here.

MacBoost (1488) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Drunk many bottles of this in Puerto Rico. Fizzy, yellow alcohol delivery system. Stocked in the mini fridge of upscale hotels. Scroll past unless you are in the Carribbean.

TBone (13819) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle at Ponce Mall. Clear pale golden color, small white head. Grainy, sweetish malty aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish malty and a bit rubbery. Enjoy ice cold! Otherwise another tropical lager.
