4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer was made again for Puerto Ricans that like mostly pale lagers. It is a must in PR because the hot weather. Also, the maker of this beer is the same as the only other beer in PR, Medalla Light. Silver Key is my favorite because its refreshing, when served ice cold. This beer is the local competition for Coors Light which is also widely sold in PR.

10 ounce can shared by Butters at Slutfest 5, 4/25/15. Clear golden, thin fizzy head, poor retention. Aroma of grainy malt, grass, skunk. The taste is grainy malt, corn, grass. Thin, watery. Yay new country!

SF5, thanks butters, Virtually no aroma. Flavor is horrifyingly sweet corn and carbonic bite. Cardboard on the finish. Remarkably bad, I had been really hoping for less flavor.

Can shared at the End of History tasting. Getting in my Puerto Rico ticks. Aroma of wet cardboard, corn, and mineral water. Pours clear with nice bubbles. Taste is light grains, metal, and cardboard. Wow, I feel bad for PR.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Crystal clear golden coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of water and a touch of metal - nothing at all here. Light-bodied; Water water and more water in the flavour with the faintest hit of malt, metal and citrus - there really is nothing going on. Aftertaste shows ice - yes, ice crystals, probably because of the low ABV, but that is the only thing noteworthy - ice crystals as texture with absolutely no flavour. Overall, perhaps a good beer for the heat of Puerto Rico, but a plain and unexciting beer for sure. I sampled this small ten ounce can purchased from SuperMAX (de Diego) in San Juan, Puerto Rico on 11-October-2014 for US$1,00 sampled on 12-October-2014.

Clear yellow. Slight grain flavour. Not terribly different from Medalla Lite. Whatever, its Puerto Rico.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Pale yellow w/fizzy white head. This is like diet beer flavored soda pop. Watered down grainy flavor that really isn’t there. Like others have said, it’s very similar to Coors Light. Not even good as an alcohol delivery system as it hardly has any. Luckily it’s only 10 ounces like all canned Puerto Rican beer.

Probably spent more effort in selecting a name, than in making a good beer. KEY from Coors Keystone Light, and SILVER from Coors Silver Bullet.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
10 oz can. Pours a clear very pale straw colored body with a minimal fizzy white head that vanished pretty quickly. The nose is really very minimal, just some very minimal corn notes. The flavor is very bland and watery, bug unlike the last PR beer I had, it’s not offensive in the slightest. Bland and boring for sure, but very easily drinkable. Very much PR’s answer to Coors Light. Light bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Short and actually rather crisp finish. This is the best of the three commonly available beers in Puerto Rico, which I guess isn’t saying too much.
