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.

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.

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.

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>

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 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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This site makes me fill in a bunch of words to describe this in what can really be described in only two words. Industrial Lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Six pack from King Richard’s liquors, Michigan City, Indiana. Darkish yellow pour from a 12 oz bottle. Thin white head. Aroma of light malts, caramel, promising hoppiness. Slightly sweet maltiness at the start with a good bit of hops in the finish. Pilsner-esq astringent hoppy end. Light bodied and rather thin palate. Not bad at all.
