Perhaps the dirty taps in the Dominican Republic influenced the taste of this beer. More like carbonated water with some beer flavoring (and weak flavoring at that). I’d take it over Corona and maybe Carib. Or maybe I’d just get tequila instead.

Without a doubt, one of the single worst beers that I’ve ever tried to drink. Unpleasant vegetable/grain/skunk smell. Like bad Miller, due to the corn. Lazy label, green bottle... and why would you ever advertise that you use ’corn grits’ right on the label? Thin, with a bitter quinine and metal flavor. Unfit for marinade.

Well, what are you going to do? But I do drink it on the couch when Pedro pitches

Golden color with a fluffy white big bubbled head that disipated quite quickly. Grass hop aroma. Slight oily/sulfur odor. Slight malt sweetness on the start. No real dominant flavors. No real faults. Slightly dry acidic finish.

I stayed in Dominican resort for a week and this was the only beer available. It became all I knew. Much better on tap than in bottle, mainly because refrigerators didn’t work. Drinking this cold is necessary, not bad in the heat, but nothing to write home about.

Kind of a rancid, skunky taste thing going on here. Geez. They really underwhelm ’ya with this brew. It goes beyond forgettable into just plain bad.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Pours a clear yellow with a thick off-white head, grassy aroma, fizzy body, starts and ends lightly bitter.

Another Miami beer for me, the lager style is good for hot weather, but this popular Miami brew is generally green bottled skunkiness.

IN dominican, this is what they drink. It was on tap, never had it out of the bottle. It tasted quite watery, but not a bad taste.
