1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Hm, a Dominican beer, a first for me I think. Has a distinctively urban taste, hard to define exactly what that means, but it’s urban. Harsh aftertaste, light red-gold color. Bottle says " pilsner-style", but tastes doubtful... I could be wrong.

This stuff got me curious. Very skunky aroma. Bottle says brewed with "finest corn grits". Maybe that’s what I’m tasting, difficult to describe...not unpleasant, but not something I’d readily reach for again. Very fizzy, aggressive bite with alcohol aftertaste.

Bottle. Not a really bad beer, but not so good either. Pours golden with a large white head that diminishes fairly quickly to nothing. Aroma is strong, toasty malts and rather prominent hops. Much more flavorful than I expected, light malt sweetness with fairly assertive hop bitterness and a lingering finish. Light body and aggressive carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. An OK beer. Light yellow color with a fizzy white head. Malty aroma, but somewhat skunky. Could have been the green bottle. Decent taste. Crisp. Malty, no hops. Had this on the beach today so I guess it’s OK for that but other than that nothing much to look forward too.

Draft/Bottle/Can - Not really a good beer - in spite of the heat and the fact that it was cold. Skunky, even right from the tap. No hops and little malt flavor. I’ll stick with the DR rum instead

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Straight from the source and still skunky. Pale gold. Thin white head. Some grassiness in the nose. Sweet. Herbal mint notes. Regular yellow junk.

Well, this isn’t the greatest beer in the world and the "pilsner-style" description is pushing it a bit, but it does have a little malt and hop character, which is more than can be said for the scores of boring Caribbean lagers that I had sampled before. Bottled, le Lezard Vert, Guadeloupe.
