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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a surpisingly lush dark gold, with a nice head of off-white and intricate lacing. Smells of watered down vegetable juice and government-issue honey. Flavor is a spikey rush of artificial sweetener and corn, with a slight floral finish. Watery mouthfeel. I guess this would be okay to drink if I was IN Spain, but I’m in Houston so it doesn’t work for me right now.

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>

På hotellrommet i Granada, 0,33 boks: klar gylden med fint hvitt skum (som de fleste andre denne ferieuka). Floral bitterhet med llitt gress og kokte grønnsaker. Kort avslutning. OK for 1 euro, men det er det hele.

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.
