Lata. Color ámbar. Espuma blanca poco densa y persistente. Aroma muy vago, quizá con alguna nota frutal. En boca es agradable con leves notas de cacao (algo que me sorprendió, tendré que probar otra para confirmar este punto) Final levemente amargo. Bebible

Tja. Wie erwartet nun mal ein simples, duennes und vollkommen laffes Piwo ohne Seele. Trinkbar, leicht malzig, etwas Mais und Reis. Geht.

Dorada clara. Espuma de un par de dedos. Aroma herbal. Agradable en boca, con recuerdos herbales, predominio dulzon malteado, toque carbónico que llega al paladar y un final ligeramente amargo y seco. Bebible.

Bottle from supermarket on Mallorca. The beer has got a clear golden colour with a small head and thin body. Aroma of cheap beer and malt. Taste of mild hops, malt, mild citrus fruits, grass and grains. Watery-thin finish. Nothing good.

Very easy to drink, very easy to forget. Pours pale with white head. Aroma is mild: bread, iron. Taste is bitterish and watery, not very long-lasting.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 18 March 2016: Bottle from Carrefour. In Teku glass. Watching True Detective 2x03. Much better than the canned version I previously took. This one hasnt that nasty sweetness and is pretty decent for its price 24 May 2015: From Dia. Playing Kings Bounty Dark Side, in cup of Legado de Yuste. Supersweet. Very bad. The can was hit, so maybe it was in bad state, although no leak were appreciable. Overall: 0.8

Tasted 29/3/15. Draught at cafe Bandolero, Cordoba, Spain. Poured a crystal clear amber with a one-finger white foamy head that retained well and laced well. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma of malt and grain but no obvious hops. Taste of sweet malt followed by a slight bitterness. Smooth, crisp, soft, refreshing with a lingering slight bitterness fading to slightly metallic.
