2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz US import bottle, hence no bb. Pale yellow with firm whipped eggwhite cap. Fresh enough filtered proteins, grain husks in aroma. Onset starts pleasantly citrus-hoppy, mild cardboard. Mid slump, going off into spent grain and mais territory, resurfacing with aluminium herbal notes. Dry paper finish. Not as bad as expected, hence I would spontaneously combust into eulogy: A credible enough Dominican icon of quality and pride that has kept a strong linkage with freshness, entertainment and young adults. In that particular order.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Presidente) Bottle 355 ml, from a trade with vipinvelp, thanks Werner! New country. Served into a glass tankard, ABV 5%
Golden yellow colour on the body with a tall and sopay white head sitting on top. Very good retention, leaving medium lacing behind.
Aroma has fresh grass, light malts, some lemon notes.
Tastes okay, again some grass, metallic notes, band aid, the lemon notes again notable on the finish.
Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side.
Well I just came back from a twelve hour day at work, and I wanted something that doesn’t need to be dissected. This one hit the spot.

A mildly sweet pilsener. Aroma is nearly non-existent. Nothing particularly special.

Bottle. Pots light yellow with off-putting aroma. Heavy carbonation yet light head. Not much going on in this pils.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at Ben and Sonja’s. Presidente is a great name for a hot country lager, conjouring images of dictators, hot weather and corruption. Scorchio! Buono estente! Chris Waddle! Terrible beer, adjunct, slightly corny sweet, lacks hop character. I’ll take the recommended lime next time.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
At MIA airport. Not horrible. Lots of disjointed aroma and flavor of cheap malt and slight infection. Clear gold with moderate white head.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
An inoffensive lager. Drink it when it’s very hot and it will do nicely. Otherwise entirely forgettable. Boring label.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light malty, floral, very low bitterness, crisp, very refreshing. For a macro industrial lager is not bad, perfect for a hot weather.
