Tap @brewpub. Hazy orange color, medium-sized off-white head. Grainy, a bit sticky aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Grainy, sweetish malty flavor with light spicey German type hoppyness in the finish. Quite typical brewpub lager. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2013
I preferred Coqui. Low carbonation, slight cereal with some mash malt. Finishes a bit sour with small bitter note. Sticky consistency stays on tongue. Low carbonation. Tap at brewpub. 3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold with a short white head. Aroma is fruity in the way of Cascade hops (pineapple, apricot, melon). Medium-light bodied, sweet with moderate bitterness. Noticeably rough and a little silty / yeasty in the mouth. Juicy-fruity and tropical with medium to high finishing bitterness. Seems decent enough, maybe not lagered long enough given the roughness but the hops certainly show, I don’t pick up any fermentation problems, and the bitterness is palpable. It’s a little too fruity-tropical with a pineapple gelatin candy note that I’ve experienced before in American-hopped German Pilsners, but compared to what else is available in Puerto Rico it certainly has merit. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Tap, brewpub. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a minimal white head that fell to a thin ring. The hops on the nose is pretty light, a little grassy with some crockery malt. The flavor is a little off, not very crisp or clean, seemingly not well lagered. A lot of off notes on the finish especially. Very minimal bitterness throughout. Not sure that I can be convinced that they are all malt here. Light bodied and fizzy with a short finish. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
In short: A bland golden-blond beer of some kind. Meh.

How: Tap at Pizzeria de Pirilo, San Juan, PR.
The look: Clear pale golden, body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is very discreet to say the least, light cereals presence, light fruity and grassy hops notes. Taste is just as low-profile as the aroma. Some cereals, a bit of honey, light fruity flavors (citrus fruits, apples), ends with shy grassy hops. Carbonation is a bit too much, almost like a soda-pop. Extremely boring although nothing offensive per say. With its mouthfeel, fruity esters and everything this beer doesn’t even feel like a lager. I thought that maybe there was a freshness problem or Pizzeria de Pirilo were not treating their beers properly, but then a few days later I was Old Harbor beers directly at the brewpub and realized this is just a shitty brewpub. I had many Old Harbor beers while I was in PR, and all I can say is the brewer of Old Harbor and I have one thing in common, apparently we both don’t give a shit about the Old Harbor beer.
Sampled at the brewpub in Old San Juan. Creamy thin head. Just plain clean beer aroma. Pale yellow but I do detect a hint of haze in there. Some grassy flavors in the mix. A little more pilsner bite than the OH Coqui, but for the most part seems to be about the same recipe. Has a more intense pilsner bitter finish but is not over the top. nearbeer (5557) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2013
Pint on tap at Caribe Hilton. Golden with a lasting ring of creamy bubbles. Nose is sweet corn and dry grass. Tastes of caramel, dry grass and a hint of corn and lemon. Medium body has low carbonation, is well balanced and finishes crisp. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Gold. Nose is grassy hops and seems more full-bodied than the later already with deeper malt and higher IBU. Delicious lingering bitterness. Impressive and sessionable. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 21, 2012
Draft: Poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma was light grain. The taste was soft grain very thin and watery. unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2007
27 oct 07, on tap @ Old Harbor Brewery in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Clear golden color. tan head. Aroma of light malt with some hop florals. Flavor is a sharp bitterness. Followed by malt backbone. A textbook Pilsener.
