2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours a very pale clear yellow color forming a medium white fluffy head. Medium retention and some lacings left
S: Very "Adjunct" in the nose, I mean, you can feel the corn and the adjunct malts which is not a positive point, I would say. Corn, sweet malts and grassy hops
T: Follows the nose. Corn, sweet malts, adjunct malts. Mild on the hops. Metallic aftertaste
M: Extremely light body. Medium to high carbonation (artificial carbonation). Mild bitterness
O: Not recommended

Pale yellow clear body with white head. Aroma is some odd chemical, hay Palate thin with medium carbonation and mouth feel. Aftertaste paper and medium short hops finish. Nasty stuff.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Leighton for the country tick. Yellow / pale straw coloured pour with a light fleeting white head. Aroma is sweet wort, honey malts, no hops. Flavour is grainy, lager yeast, some honey and straw. Palate is crisp dry and refreshing. Not terrible carribean lager, a bit of malt in there.

"only beer i saw from the Dominican, looking to expand my horizons. not as bad as some south of the border will, for sure, but really not very good either. your standard yellow beer that manages to be less offensive than many."

Bottle, Royalton Punta Cana. Very average lager, has a fairly crisp taste, with a slightly odd lingering aftertaste. One to drink absolutely ice cold when in the DR but not recommended anywhere else!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Shared 330 ml green bottle at local tasting. Pale golden colour, low white head.
Weak sweetish aroma, notes of grass and artificial candy. Bland flavour, but not offensive. No doubt drinkable under the Dominican sun, but far from a great beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Shared bottle during RBHD Mosterøl gathering. Clear golden body with a small white head. Wet carboard and sugar on the nose. Sweet and light bitter. Light bodied. As bland as they come, but drinkable on a warm beach, perhaps...

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden. Not much head. Flowerish aroma with some sweetness and a slight hint of sourness Bland, and slightly unfresh taste, with artificial sweetness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
OMG..This beer has nothing to envy the best beers of the world. Perfect for the tropical climates where it should be consumed. It is found throughout the eastern USA.
I am not going to get into the descriptive minutia that the rest of you indulge in. Suffice to say, this beer is no different to other famous names you all like to revel about in your worldly spins:
Stella, Becks, Heineken, Perroni, or Nastro Azzuro.
Ok, I’ll admit, I have a weakness for lagers, pilsners and green bottles.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle brought back from the DR by Dave, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a clear light golden color with a huge fluffy white head that leaves quite a bit of lace on the sides. Aromas of sweet bready pilsner malt with an hint of sulfur and some faint floral essence. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side with a hint of spice. Light body with a huge amount of carbonation and just shy of watery in the mouth. I’ve had much worse, but I could see a few of these going down easily on a beach somewhere.
