1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark straw to light golden in color. Taller, foamy white head. Certainly skunk or actually closer to fox scent. Hints of grain and herbal hops. Sweet chalky flavors with quite some amount of floral hops. Somewhat watery in feel. Sort of sugary and syrupy flavors at time along with the grain and husky. Some hints of alcohol Mid to late quaff drag this one down further.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at Tenerife, served ice cold. Pale golden colour, creamy white head. Very moderate aroma, a little malts, citrus and a hint of vomit. "Neutral" pale lager flavour, nothing offensive but not much to make you happy either, some weak hops in the finish.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: The aroma is a strange combination of sweet grain, straw, metal, and maybe even a hint of strawberry. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts lightly sweet with some grainy notes in the background. The sweetness builds into the finish with some light grassiness. It certainly tastes better than it smells, but thatís not much of a compliment. Light bodied with somewhat fizzy carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Maybe my bottle was relatively new, but I thought this was a pretty decent lager from start to finish. A little funkyness in the aroma, apples. Still, a nice hoppiness and one that I found worth trying.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light brown/dark amber bottle. Aroma is grassy with weak hops. Yellowish pour, with a small white foamy head that all but disappears. Flavor is weak malts with a heavy influence of grass. Nearly indistinguishable from any other pale lager.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gift from Spain. Golden color with white head. Aroma, caramel and toffee. Taste, sweet with notes of caramel, bittersweet finish. Better than I expected, but nothing special.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is like creamed corn with grain. The appearance is slightly hazy gold with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall itís nothing worth mentioning other than to say itís not good.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Clear golden pour, bleached white foamy head, decent lace. buttery, white oak aroma. Plain, pale lager flavor. Sweet malt, very insignificant presance of medicinal hop flavoring. Not a great lager, better than some others. When in Spain, I guess?

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A fresh bottle from the distributor, Sampled at 1702, Tucson; April 2010,br>
This beer pours into my glass with a brilliantly clear, light cider-yellow color. It is topped by a fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The beer smells more like cider to me than anything, but also has some nuttiness to it as well as a touch of grain.
Interestingly enough this tastes of toasted nuts underneath a more omnipresent cider like flavor. Perhaps a touch of cardboard is found here and the beer is lightly sweet which is somewhat offset by the fizzy, light texture. Some green acetaldehyde is also found here. This is certainly a beer meant to be drunken ice cold; this is a touch on the warm side, so it is not crisp and refreshing and instead has too much flavor for a beer of this type.
