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 (565) - 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 (449) - 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.

33 cL bottle. Pours clear yellow with a dense white head. Dry grassy aroma. Flavour is mild malty at first before a more solid and dry bitterness takes over into the finish. Straightforward caribian pale lager. Mild sweetness towards the finish. Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle.[Tasting session @ yespr, thanks for a great evening Jesper] Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Clear light sparkling body with a yellow colour. Aroma of light grass and hint of cardboard. Watery sweet malty notes. Light bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Light sweet and bitter flavour. Light dry and bitter finish. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle. Pours a transparent yellow with a tiny fizzy head that’s gone in no time at all. Lacing? Pfft, this is just water. Aroma is skunky corn and nothing else. Same with the flavor. Watery, kinda drinkable I guess, surely for getting hammered and NOTHING else. Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2008
pours a clear gold with full whtie fluffy head. sweet sour corn aroma. light front to finish, mild caorn background and no complexity. TheHumanKeg (6) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 29, 2008 does not count
I tried both Presidente and Presidente light while doing volunteer work in the Dominican Republic in San Jose De Ocoa
the beer is stored there in freezers that often stop working due to power outages therefore they sweat than when the freezer kicks back in the bottle freezes and is enclased in ice. To get to the point, when your doing volunteer work that includes heavy labor in the hot sun all day you want something ice cold, refreshing and slushy. That’s what Presidente provided because it’s not strong (at all), it’s light can be skunky when exposed to the sun, it’s refreshing, very fizzy and great on a hot day and A VERY GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO WATER considering us foreigners have bad effects to the water there. I drank it every day for the entire month I was there working.
