2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours light gold with a soapy white head that actually leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is sweet corn, grassy hops, paper, and slightly metallic. Flavor shows the same, but strangely enough there is some alcohol presence on the finish. Overall body is light, moderately sweet, and finish is lightly bitter.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Especial Premium Lager. 5.0% ABV. I assume this is the same beer, with a lower alcohol content. The name is the same, but the ABV differs. Dark gold in color with a loose white head. Aroma of cardboard, alcohol, toffee, pear. Surprisingly bitter. Rather thin in body and dry. Not much in the flavor deptartment but hints of toffee and alcohol.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear yellow with some fizzy whiteness that quickly dissapears. Aroma a tad bit sweet and a tad bit grassy. Flavor is typical watery sweet malts and corniness though there is definitely something else, almost chemical tasting in there. Not bad, but probably wouldn’t buy again due to the extra off taste.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Decent lacing. Sweet, grassy hop and grain aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a touch of maize and a bit of hoppiness in the finish. Smooth and drinkable lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Beer is clear, light copper-gold. Head is initially larger-than-average, frothy, white. Diminishes quickly leaving chunks of lacing on the glass.<P>
The aroma is malty with trace notes of husky toasted grain; Hoppy with trace notes of wild flower; Intermittent trace buttery note—maybe diacetyl.<P>
The flavor is light-to-moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic with short, lightly bitter, lightly sweet finish. Some grassy metallic in the retros.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.<P>

[US West Coast Trip 2013] Aroman är det intressanta i denna ölen, tydliga inslag av rödvin. Likaså smaken men dessvärre inte med lika stor prägel. Väldigt ljus.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
33cl bottle from some stupid store in my city. Pours a dark, clear gold with almost no head. Aromas of cooked veggies and rotten meat. Taste is horrific...cooked veggies, butter, beans. No. Amoung the worst I’ve had.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bleh. Typical sweet, grassy pale lager. Maybe a bit more malt and a hint of complexity above your average American pale lager, but still plain and tasteless. Spanish Budweiser.
