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....

355ml bottle from bar in San Juan. Rating from September 2014. Pale lager that is the same as all the others, pretty ordinary.

With gratitude to SS, who swiped this one from her father in law’s fridge in the great country of Puerto Rico. The Puerto Ricans have voted in various referenda over the years, and have always voted to stay part of the United States, until RateBeer wiped away democracy on the island nation in one fell swoop. But I digress. Crystal clear golden yellow color, white coca cola head and champagne bubbles. Aroma of wet grass. Taste is indistinguishable from virtually every other commercial light lager I’ve tried, which is not necessarily a bad thing, especially since this one seems to be very fresh. Thirst quenching and inoffensive.

Same as any other light beer. You can drink a lot and still won’t get drunk. Better coat the system with something stronger first

RobertDale (3334) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle at World of Beer in Key West. Pours a pale gold with an average white head. Mild aroma of malt and grain. Taste is thin and watery malt and grain. Not bad, just not much there.

Another six pack I was burdened with while in Puerto Rico. The beer had a light gold color with a small white head that had short retention, and low cling and lacing. The aroma was mostly grain and adjunct, with slight notes of hops. The taste was fairly grainy and bitter, with a slight sour effect, and quickly became worse as the beer warmed. Its body was very light and thin with a somewhat dry mouthfeel with little carbonation and life.

Small can, slugged on the streets of Old San Juan, midday. After watching countless locals swill this as at grimy neighborhood bars across Puerto Rico, I couldn’t help myself. I had to know what I was missing. I’d been hiking the hills of Old San Juan and worked up quiet a thirst. Recent newspaper reports said that low alcohol beer was better at re-hydration than water and are they ever right! This ice cold mini can went down fast and refreshing. I didn’t even notice a buzz. The residue left on my tongue was a metallic, urea quality with a bit of plant material. Cold, fast, and refreshing.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Golden in the glass. The beer starts smooth, slightly watery. The mainpart is very watery, slightly malty, slightly sweet. The aftertaste is very watery, slightly grainy, watery.

Better "island beer" than corona so if you are in a pinch for craft beer, it's not a bad substitute. Very neutral taste, similar to Amstel Light but with more malt aroma a taste in the form of a light crackers taste. Not a bad beer to session with on the beach. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
