COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Presidente is a Dominican icon of quality and pride. This leading product of great tradition has maintained a vigorous presence in the local market for almost seventy years and has kept a strong linkage with freshness, entertainment and young adults. Presidente is a Pilsner type beer made from top quality raw materials that definitely makes it the best beer, the real taste.

Very light yellow color with lots of bubble action. Slight skunky aroma that comes from the bottle. The taste is fair enough-a little domestic and a bit weak, but overall not bad for what it is. Just drink really cold and preferably on a boat in the Caribbean.

Bottled. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Pale golden colour. Good frothy head. Little soda-fruity along with plug-hole. No bitterness. Probably all malt but something with the water went wrong. Bodegas rating covers what there is to say about this beer, look down two ratings.

Lousy, lousy beer. I didn’t have very high expectations, yet I was still disappointed. Pretty much tastes like nothing, and what little flavor there is, isn’t good.

Slipstream (2145) - USA - JAN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2008 This is a Dominican beer sold as a midpriced import. It is rarely available in good beer shops, but bodegas often have it. It has the same unpleasant odor that you find in Yanqui macrobrews. It is very fizzy, perhaps as a way to stimulate the nerves in the mouth and distract from the weak flavor. Like its American cousins, the stuff does not taste bad, it just doesn’t taste like much. It should sell for less than it does; or perhaps it should not be imported at all, since it does not offer anything that is not already available in every gas station and supermarket in the land.

THOUGHTS: Finally rating the beers I had on New Year’s Day. Another typically bad pale lager. Sure it must be quite refreshing in a tropical climate, but hell it was supposed to snow the night I tried it and it wasn’t hitting the spot. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium yellow with nice carbonation and a small, fizzy, white head that fully diminished. The aroma was light malt and light grassy hops. Very weak aroma. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, acidic and bitter, while the finish was moderately sweet and bitter, lightly acidic and a little sour with a short duration. The wasn’t much flavor. There was a little malt and a little grassy hops that were well balanced, but very, very weak. The light body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a light astringent finish.

Skunky and dirty nose. Light gold color with a quick fizzy head. Rough, grainz taste; tight dry end. Thin-ish and overall just not a pleasant brew to drink.

Nuffield (3740) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Crystal clear, bright, somewhat light yellow/golden color, good foaming white head that remains longer than expected. This is one of those beers where you don’t know if the skunk aroma you get is accident or just a natural by-product. At any rate, no awards for aroma, which is dry and includes a faint odor of a cigarette ashtray or the smell of the clothes of a two-pack-a-day smoker. It is crisp, with fewer off-putting adjunct flavors that one might expect. This remarkable achievement of Dominican Republic brewing must have been made possible by the dilution of the beer, because the beer finishes very quickly with a lasting sense that this is carbonated water and a dash of "essence of beer #62b" flavor additive. In sum, this beer achieves some of what you expect of a warm-climate beer--crisp, palatable, not overly offensive--but is deeply flawed and worthy of drinking only if there are no better alternatives or you’re seeking to try a beer from the Dominican Republic, as I was until tonight.... //Re-rated October 2005: skunky sweet, drier flavor, not too complex, plain yellow, goes flat quickly...all told, a 1.5 (3-3-3-2-6)

When I asked, the bar tender said it tasted like Heineken. I don't like Heineken but even Heineken is better than this beer. He must have been confused by the green bottle. Although, I would drink this beer over Heineken for the pure fact that I am anti yuppi.

This should be called bland beer and not Presidente. Like just about every other crappy pale lager. It does its job.
