1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Upon cracking the cap with my bottle opener: IMMEDIATE skunk smell ejaculation. Just like Rolling Rock. This is low grade bad. Seems to be popular amongst the hipster set for its ironicalness. Sad

Many thanks go out to Pailhead for this little delight!!! Served out of a can, but the can was green which means skunk, right??? Adjunct laden. Slightly sweet up front. Nothing else really striking about the flavor. It is fizzy and yellow. Well, cross a country off I guess.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle on location in the Dom Rep. Clear pale yellow liquid; no head; no lace. Minus 1 appearnace points for the green bottle. Faint aroma of hay; to taste crisp and bitter, clean finish. Great swill.

My sister loves this stuff and brought a lot back with her from the Dominican. Piss yellow with a fizzy head. Kinda skunky (green bottle). Aroma of nada; no hops, no malt, hey... is that corn I smell. Might be as good as some other pale lagers from Latin America, then again might not.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 On tap: Light malty, skunk, and corn. Pale yellow with a white head. Okay retention. Lightly sweet up front with a skunky corn hop finish. Slightly better than the Bohemia Especial. Very similar to Miller Lite. Much better from the bottle than on tap.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Typical pale lager, brewed in a country where thirst quenching is more important than taste. So, it’s not great, but on a hot day in the Dominican Republic, i would definitely drink this beer.

Bottle. Poured a medium sized fizzy white head with sparse lacing, transparent, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. Malty, skunky aroma. Malty aroma. Slightly tingly mouthfeel. Light bodied. Nothing great going on here.

Had this one for the first time on the beach in St Martin, so I guess my rating may be a little high due to the setting. Drank right out of the bottle. Had a typical aroma you’d expect from this style, but does not taste nearly as bad as Corona. Must enjoy this one ice cold or it will taste terrible, must also make sure its fresh, or it will also taste terrible.....ie don’t have it unless you are pretty close to the DR.
