3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this one bottled in Valparaiso, Indiana. Light golden color with a bubbly, white head. Clean grassy malts and a bit of flowery hops in the nose, effervescent, with sweet maltiness and some leafy hops in the background. Clean finish. Not bad for a pale lager.

el spain ish version, thanks ma -- Smell is of usual euro lager .. Big head on the pour, and the lacing is of medium strength .. Dark Yellow Gold .. Refreshing at its best, but does have a sour like back taste. Pass on this beer...

Bottle. Orange-gold color. The beer tastes like the metallic head - even after any head has faded. Not awful, I can drink it. But I wouldn’t recommend this. It has a very drying effect on the mouth.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice rich gold color with just a little head.
Very slight skunk in my bottle, along with malt, and a touch of yeast. Smooth, but ample carbonation makes it pretty nice and refreshing. Decent pale lager, actually. Maybe a touch drying in the finish which gives it a slightly unique character. Very drinkable and I wouldn’t mind having again if for some reason it was availabe.

Just when you think you’ve found a Pale Lager that will be different from the rest, you get let down. As far as pale lagers go this one is suitable but not distinct

The appearance of the beer was white with golden yellow and nice initial head. Malty aroma. The mouthfeel was on the thin side, and the taste extreme metallic, if you are looking for that sort of thing.

33 cL bottle as Especial Premium Lager. Clean grassy aroma with a hint of hop spice. Brassy gold color with a rapidly flattening white head. Thin bodied, a bit fizzy. Starts with malt, backed by grassy hop. Well balanced, clean. Mild bitter in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Aroma was surprisingly rich with caramel and toffee, with a slight hop presence and some grainy notes. Taste was sweet, almost cloyingly sweet, finish has a bit of bitter hoppyness, but not enough in my opinion. Mouthfeel was satisfactory, medium/light. Overall it was less then average but better than i expected.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a clear golden yellow beverage with a medium sized white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was somewhat balanced with significant contributions from a roasted malt nose. There were also some hints of creamed corn however. The body was light with a soft carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off lightly sweet but quickly turned a bit bitter and harsh leaving a dry, tart mouthfeel toward the end of the medium-length finish.
