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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml brown bottle, embossed. Says 5.4% alc on this one
Regular Euro lager appaearance light golden with a large fluffy white head.
Aroma is pretty grassy/grainy. Some doughy scents too.
Taste is semi-sweet, quite noticabl malty with peppery hoppiness appearing soon after and in the after taste.
Quite "soft" on the palate, lowish carbonation.
Overall an average European lager, but its quite nice and better than American macro type lagers.

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.

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.

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...

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a two inch white head that slowly collapses. Taste is of malt, caramel, wheat, yeast and bread. Similar aroma. Has a decent body, with a clean finish. A pretty decent lager.
