Drinkable. Local beer in Puerto Rico. If you don’t want to spend $10 for a Sam Adams, there is no other alternative. Actually, not a bad light beer.

Had a ton of this in Puerto Rico and non of it was very good. Watered down with a sickly finish. If your there I say stick with the DonQ rum.

I am from Puerto Rico and I can safely say this beer is horrible. Smells like aluminium/metal and tastes like dishwater. We make excellentrum and we should stick to that. I guess there can be worse...

Compare to any super light lager. Not worth the trouble, unless you happen to be in PR.

The cheapest beer and easy to drink massive quantities. Why bother with any other while in PR? It’s good for you (calories, carbs, alcohol values are impressive). I’d take it over water down there any day. Brings pride and happiness to all. Taste was fine; bland but why care?

My favorite light beer. THE beer in my home country. That being said, not something I miss.
Straw color, straw aroma and taste with some earth, some detectable fruits.

Can/bottle Olde San Juan. Tried Medalla again recently. I forgot how much I enjoyed it when I was in Puerto Rico 15 years ago. Brought me back.

Was given a six pack of cans from a co-worker. Super light, probably very refreshing under a palm tree after a nice session at Rincon . I think with this one its all about location.

I'ts just a summer brew for crissakes! Good if you're at the beach and it's over 80 degrees, believe me been there done that. This is not a real beer, just refreshment.
