One of the most corned-up beers I've had. Otherwise, teh chemical offflavours. Gentlemen, we don't need another Corona

No way in hell this is pilsener, just another Mexican-style swill, clear golden color, nose smelled of skunked corn, slight malt in the nose, very heavy body & very filling, I almost couldn't have another beer (not this one again, though), after drinking just one of these

Label says Pilsener. Tongue says corn. Color says lager. Taste is heavy, especially for a pils. Almost managed to maintain the head.

no head on a skunky-ish nose. Clear-nasty looking color. No bad flavor...well no flavor at all actually. Fizzy mouthfeel. uggy.

willblake (2632) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Bottle (3/2/04) This stuff is ubiquitous in Florida. Poor Floridians. Fairly dark jaundice yellow; small head that lasts. Aromas of microwaved turnip greens, cream corn, Georgia paper factories. Flavor in keeping with the aroma; tons of corn, white bread, somewhat winey. Horrid aftertaste of slimed iceberg lettuce - despite a rather dry finish from this international lager. Almost my first 0.5 rating, but it doesn't look so bad from a distance.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Deep straw in color with a small white head that lasted the duration of the beer.Aroma was of skunky hops and mild corn.Flavor was of corn and canned vegtables. Clean dry finish.

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Clean lager aroma. Pale gold in color with slow carbonation. Has a peppery bite. Better than Bohemia Especial (DR). Drinkable. Tastes better in the DR than in the States which I attribute mostly to short shelf life and partly to environment. I found during my first tasting in the States a couple of years ago that, like Corona, it was helped by a slice of lime. This seemed less the case in the DR.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2004
A very boring vegetable oil appearance, with a little bit of grainy soda head. Lots of adjuncts in this one. The flavor has a nice grassy hop bite, but still seems unbalanced, as if something is missing.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 Rerate - after waking up the next morning and still tasting the "corn grits" every time I burp, I have decided to knock it down a few notches. Original - 1.6 Skunky, stale vegetable aroma greets you as you pop the top of this third world classic. Very light golden appearance with a decent white head and good bubble action. It's all downhill after that. Boiled corn flavor - and it says right on the bottle - corn grits!!! The aftertaste is quite metallic as well, feels unfinished; needs work. Not the most pleasant experience - but not a drainpour - plus I added another country to my list.

Enjoy this on a hot day under the Dominican sun. The beer is rather filling & full of flavor. At many bars the bottle is pulled from the cool-box and covered with frost. Delicious.
