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.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Draft at a bar in San Juan: Clear and straw colored; virtually headless. Light, watery mouthfeel. Light and bready malts. Some white wine notes. Fair amount of bitterness -- relative to the light malts. Herbal, bitter hops. No major offenses or off-flavors to complain about, but the beer was definitely boring.

Thin yellow and fizzy here. Too many adjunct flavors. Not much to recommend here.

Was at an all inclusive resort in the dominican. It was all i could drink for a whole week. So i convinced myself to like it. yellow, watery and did its job. Quench my thirst.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2003
Clear yellow coloured, initially large, but fading head. Skunky Carlsberg aroma, but i like that. Quite watery, but it's a lager i could drink more often (obviously apart from the fact i have to travel a few thousand kilometers to get some...).

Not bad, as crappy hot-weather lagers go. Overly sweet, artificial adjunct breadiness. Not harsh or offensive.

Simple beer that is similar in style to the green-bottled euro-lagers. Kind of boring, but drinkable. Light malt crispness and lime-like hop bitterness present. Also skunky, but it doesn't do too much harm here.
