Mediocre pils, but light and relatively refreshing on a hot San Juan day at least. Finishes a little rough. Meh. 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.

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. Hkrivera (153) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - JUL 19, 2014
This selection comes originally in draft and now, bottled. The review is for the bottled version. The flavor is refreshing, as a German lager should be. The hops are subtle in the mouth. I perceive a light difference between the draft and the bottle, I guess I prefer the draft but this one is good also.

22oz Bottle, purchased at the brewery. Mineral, salt, mangrove, and almond aroma. A little messy. This wasn’t quite as all over the map as I thought it might have been. Some moderately fresh pilsner malt flavor, some warmer fermentation products, a generic green bitterness, and low alcohol presence. It really feels like a "brewpub" beer with some house yeast character adding some sulfur and vegetable flavors mid-palate. MWMBeerguy (203) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Malty aroma with delicate hops. Slightly hazy with a thin head. Very nice, smooth beer though not as crisp as I'd like a pilsner. If this is considered as an island pils it's great and I would drink it every day. Falls a little short as a continental pils though.

In short: A bland golden-blond beer of some kind. Meh.nearbeer (5555) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2013
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.
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. 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.
