1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle marked: L#5 13:13 May 20 08. As soon as I clip the top off I notice the inevitable green bottle skunky sensation, which I cannot stand. Pours yellow-gold. I do not use a lime wedge. Aroma is less skunky in the pint glass and slightly more corny, grassy, and a whiff of malts. Lots of carbonation. A litle bolder than some pales but still not all that great. It leaves a dry aftertaste in my mouth.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle- Pale, pale yellow with a fizzy and short lived white cap. The nose is grassy with lots of pale malts and a heavy dose of vegetables. Tastes of mild bitter grassy hops with veggies and straw. Quick and spritzy finish. Not offensive, just not good.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Drank a lot of this in the DR. Pours a bright golden orange colour with a large head. Aroma is of tropical fruit and slight corn. Taste is pretty light, well carbonatned. typical for a pale lager but refreshing nonetheless.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Initial taste comes across a bit light, yet the beer has a heavy alcohol/tobacco aftertaste. Ideal if you’re a fast drinker and don’t want to bother the waiter too much when you’re having a dinner with your girlfriend :-)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Found this at a bar in San Juan, Puerto Rico. $4 for a bottle. Ubiquitous american lager color and appearance. Typical cheaper pale yellow cheap beer aroma, but not offensive. Decent bubbly carbonation. Taste is mildly bitter but not quite like a good pilsner. Has hints of a cheap american malt liquor on the finish. A pale lager but I’m not sure if this is mild enough to pass for a session brew.

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com)
As I recall, smooth pilsner style. Watery and macrobrewed.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Typical South American style pilsner style beer. Only this one has a funky smell. Quite odd actually. It MUST be consumed ICE COLD.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Um... I thought my beer may have been skunked but it was unlikely because I purchased it in a a Dominican neighborhood, so i think it just rather sucks. Aroma was rotted skunked vegetables. Taste was pretty much the same. This beer was barely drinkable. my friend didn’t even finish one.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
THOUGHTS: Finally rating the beers I had on New Year’s Day. Another typically bad pale lager. Sure it must be quite refreshing in a tropical climate, but hell it was supposed to snow the night I tried it and it wasn’t hitting the spot.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium yellow with nice carbonation and a small, fizzy, white head that fully diminished. The aroma was light malt and light grassy hops. Very weak aroma. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, acidic and bitter, while the finish was moderately sweet and bitter, lightly acidic and a little sour with a short duration. The wasn’t much flavor. There was a little malt and a little grassy hops that were well balanced, but very, very weak. The light body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a light astringent finish.
