One of the better beers from the carribbean. Best enjoyed on a beach. Has a smooth, crisp refreshing taste. Not much of an aroma and is rather high in alcohol percent when pruchased in the Dominican Republic.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 The other ratings seem to all tell the truth about this beer. It’s skunky in smell and taste. It has a light malt and corn taste but is also sour. Very similar to other Caribbean and central American beers.

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.

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.

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.
