3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This selection comes originally in draft and now, bottled. The review is for the bottled version. The flavor is refreshing, as a German lager should be. The hops are subtle in the mouth. I perceive a light difference between the draft and the bottle, I guess I prefer the draft but this one is good also.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz Bottle, purchased at the brewery. Mineral, salt, mangrove, and almond aroma. A little messy. This wasn’t quite as all over the map as I thought it might have been. Some moderately fresh pilsner malt flavor, some warmer fermentation products, a generic green bitterness, and low alcohol presence. It really feels like a "brewpub" beer with some house yeast character adding some sulfur and vegetable flavors mid-palate.

Malty aroma with delicate hops. Slightly hazy with a thin head. Very nice, smooth beer though not as crisp as I'd like a pilsner. If this is considered as an island pils it's great and I would drink it every day. Falls a little short as a continental pils though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: A bland golden-blond beer of some kind. Meh.
How: Tap at Pizzeria de Pirilo, San Juan, PR.
The look: Clear pale golden, body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is very discreet to say the least, light cereals presence, light fruity and grassy hops notes. Taste is just as low-profile as the aroma. Some cereals, a bit of honey, light fruity flavors (citrus fruits, apples), ends with shy grassy hops. Carbonation is a bit too much, almost like a soda-pop. Extremely boring although nothing offensive per say. With its mouthfeel, fruity esters and everything this beer doesn’t even feel like a lager. I thought that maybe there was a freshness problem or Pizzeria de Pirilo were not treating their beers properly, but then a few days later I was Old Harbor beers directly at the brewpub and realized this is just a shitty brewpub. I had many Old Harbor beers while I was in PR, and all I can say is the brewer of Old Harbor and I have one thing in common, apparently we both don’t give a shit about the Old Harbor beer.

Pint on tap at Caribe Hilton. Golden with a lasting ring of creamy bubbles. Nose is sweet corn and dry grass. Tastes of caramel, dry grass and a hint of corn and lemon. Medium body has low carbonation, is well balanced and finishes crisp.

I preferred Coqui. Low carbonation, slight cereal with some mash malt. Finishes a bit sour with small bitter note. Sticky consistency stays on tongue. Low carbonation. Tap at brewpub.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap, brewpub. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a minimal white head that fell to a thin ring. The hops on the nose is pretty light, a little grassy with some crockery malt. The flavor is a little off, not very crisp or clean, seemingly not well lagered. A lot of off notes on the finish especially. Very minimal bitterness throughout. Not sure that I can be convinced that they are all malt here. Light bodied and fizzy with a short finish.
