1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

(Bottle) I guess it takes cleaning up one’s cellar as I found this beer Argo gave me 18 months ago. Pours a thin, white creamy head with a straw coloured body. Nose of canned corn and soap. The flavour is mildly vegetable with a corn malt base though it is still somewhat crisp and carbonated. Below average.

Bottle. Pours very thin with a minute, yet frothy head. Very pale in color, urine-ish. Smells of hopps and yeast. Flavor is simple. Dry to the palate. I wouldn’t want to savor this beer again, but drinking it is fine.

Light yellow colored, little vanishing white head. Lemony and estery, slightly cardboardy and corny aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor
is also lemony with this drying cardboard. Surprisingly clean flavored, high carbonated. Corn in aftertaste.
