Review of Presidente Cerveza
From the Caribbean island nation of Dominican Republic comes Presidente Cerveza from the Cervecería Nacionál Dominicana in Sanrto Domingo. Unfortunately, the green bottle was a warning of the skunky aroma to follow. Not surprising with a label proclaiming in English "Fine selection of Malting Barley, Hops and Corn Grits", this medium-bodied beer had a light gold color and little noticeable flavor. Typical for this region's "Pilsner Type Beer", the brews are clean but nothing spectacular. It's interesting that the breweries feel that there is an export market for this type of product in this day and age.
