Bomber in Puerto Rico. Pours golden with pillowy white head - some neutral/generic grain - rice? Flavor is richer than expected from the aroma - still getting some rice. Some very slight butterscotch and a tad sweet on the finish. Hops balance out the malt but have no discernable flavor. bellco33 (821) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Poured from bottle: Upon opening the bottle, all I can smell is skunk. Pours yellow with half inch of white foam. Smell of skunk increases. First taste, well, this was a bad idea. I have never eaten a skunk’s asshole, but I can imagine this is pretty similar. Undrinkable, but I didn’t vomit, so that’s a plus. Down the drain it goes. Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2002
Lager style, Little Head, not particularly notable, marginally better than most domestic beers. I had this many years ago, but just had a bottle the other night. Decent all around. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Hm, a Dominican beer, a first for me I think. Has a distinctively urban taste, hard to define exactly what that means, but it’s urban. Harsh aftertaste, light red-gold color. Bottle says " pilsner-style", but tastes doubtful... I could be wrong. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2007

Clear golden with a rocky white head.
Aroma is grainy, with some light corn notes, no skunk detected yet.
Flavor is mostly light nothingness, with a touch of sweet corn and mild grassy hops.
Fairly mild beer, would pair well with a mild cigar like a Macanudo.
very little aroma. golden and clear with little head. slight malt taste but overall little flavor. a little watery tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Dubya’s favorite beer because its his job in Mexican. eh. It was ok. near the end it felt more like a malt liquor than a lager. maledictum (789) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - AUG 22, 2011
Pale golden coloured. Sweetish, corn aroma, clean, low bitterness. This is really not a beer to sip on, but works as a thirstquencher OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz green bottle served in a pint glass
A - Mostly clear pale straw color. A big bubbled white head vanishes rather quickly.
S - Sweet corn, grain husk, lager yeast, honey.
T - Follows the nose with sweet but light malt, lager yeast, chalky bitterness toward the lackluster finish.
M - Low carbonation, syrupy body.
This beer is just bleh. I actually shuddered after a few drinks. Glad I only bought a single. If I’m ever in the Dominican Republic I’ll stick to wine.
Serving type: bottle

A friend brought this back from the Dominican for me. Pours a pale yellow with a nice sticky white cap, great retention. The Aroma is the standard pale lager grassy and hay. The flavor is pretty much the same. That being said, it is everything a pale lager should be, and nothing a pale lager shouldn’t be. Really by definition this style of beer is suppose to straight forward, one dimensional, cold, crisp and refreshing. And that is exactly what this beer does, and does well.
