1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright yellow-gold hue, at the opening of the bottle the skunky swell came out, sweet pale malt, shy floral hops aromas, follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a light sweet malt character and a shy bitterness on the finish.

2004 bottle. A little bit of light rust-gold overtones on a clear yellow body. Small white head with good retention. Aroma of corn flowers, some grass. Flavor has light bread, powdered sugar and cake frosting. Some grassiness as well. A bit skunky on the end, with some slight corn-flavors. Light body, not overcarbonated for the style. I’m impressed that they come out and say that this is made with corn grits on the label. These Latin American pale lagers all taste very similar. I wonder if someone started a recipe a while back and it just gets passed around as each country starts its brewery. Must be.

This should be called bland beer and not Presidente. Like just about every other crappy pale lager. It does its job.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I was surprised to see this labled as a pilsner on the bottle because it is definitely a pale lager. Corn flavours and golden carbonated pour. Nothing special, like many other beers of this style.

eh, thirst quencher with a kick for the tropics. better than a corona or something. light and mild; especially considering alcohol content. not much to note.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice head for a pils. Nice golden head. Much drier and hoppier than other Caribbean beers...but still not very good.. A bit creamy, more like a cream ale with old, mossy hops.

Nice golden colour. The taste is not special at all, a beer like a thousand others. Not surprisingly.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew marked Dec 29,2003, poured a large sized head of foamy white colored mostly lasting finely sized bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body. The aroma contained grassy and malty notes. The mouth feel was tingly and crisp with an astringency in the aftertaste. The flavor contained the same astringency with a slight malt background. Over all a beer I’d skip.

Another Dominican Beer, another mild entry. Not a big aroma, pale yellow collor, nice head. Slightly bitter taste, but not a lot of taste. On the whole, I enjoyed Red Stripe from Jamaica better than the Dominican beers. I got a can(!) of this at the Puerto Plata airport....
