As I recall, smooth pilsner style. Watery and macrobrewed. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Typical South American style pilsner style beer. Only this one has a funky smell. Quite odd actually. It MUST be consumed ICE COLD. mansquito (6926) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2008
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. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 20, 2008
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.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2008 not a bad beer kind of tastes like a heineken, but a bit better. overall its fairly cheap and i found it in a liquor store in the bad part of town, but id assume thats not a surprise cazort (568) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2008
This was one of the more disappointing beers I’ve had from central America. The name "Pilsener" is a joke...this is a pale lager, in my opinion, one step down from one like Yuengling but perhaps a small notch up from the American macros. It’s pretty bland and has a creamy taste. To its credit, there’s no unpleasant sourness. Almost no bitterness. Worth trying once. Ironically, it does not go well with Dominican food...which is quite rich and flavorful and, in my opinion, demands a more powerful beer.

330ml bottle. From Shropshire - vintage unknown. Crown and bottle in decent condition. Served chilled and poured carefully. Some carbonation remaining. Fairly pale. Some remaining sweetness. Little bitterness. There’s very little about this to suggest any great age. An acceptable drink. daniel0017 (455) - Yukon, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
341mL bottle - Had at a resort in the Dominican Republic. Clear brownish gold with no head and carbonation. Inoffensive yet boring nose: Grassy and dull. Flavor is equally boring with no hops and a rice and barley presence. As the drink warmed, it stayed relatively drinkable. Palate is stale and watery. Drink if nothing else available.

[Tasting @ yespr – Courtesy of yespr] Clear golden with tiny short lasting white head. Aroma is very weak grassy with cardboard notes. Watery taste with light grassy notes.
