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.

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...

Clear golden. Not much head. Flowerish aroma with some sweetness and a slight hint of sourness Bland, and slightly unfresh taste, with artificial sweetness.

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.

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.

Het bekenste bier in de Dominicaanse. Het is een goede pils voor warme dagen, maar persoonlijk vind ik Bohemian beter, meer smaak hebben.

Gulbrun farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter korn og noe malt. Smakte noe syrlig og med en noe tørr avslutning.

On tap at a Cuban restaurant in Miami Beach. Light gold pour with little head. Flavor reminded me more of a light pilsener than a pale lager. I found no offensive off flavors in the beer and found it to be very easy to drink. Price was a little high, $6.95, but that is MB.

Reviewed from notes.
Though it says it is a "pilsener type" of beer, uh...here’s my take on it.
Poured into a pilsener glass, the look is quite clear with a slight yellow coloring to it. A vast array of fast rising carbonation rises to fill a rapidly dieing bubbly head. Lacing is nowhere to be seen.
The smell leaves a lot to be desired. No matter how many times I’ve had this I can never get barely anything out of this.
The taste was somewhat sweet but watery if that’s even a descriptor for taste (is there actually any flavoring in water - I’ve been drinking water longer than drinking beer and in my opinion, there’s no taste to water).
On the palate, this one sat exceptionally light and extremely sessionable, probably could pound these all day if I was on a beach in the Caribbean.
Overall, would I have this again? Hell no. I’d actually say this is probably on the lower end of the pale lagers.
