Pours a clear golden color, topped with medium sized white frothy head. Badic malty aroma, some grainy notes. Taste is sweet, malty with mild bitterness in the finish. A tad metallic in the aftertaste. Average, drinkable lager.

BlackHaddock (6347) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
5th beer in a Lager tasting session with my son on 15th Sep 2014. 330ml bottle: BBD 14th Apr 2015. Poured your regular Lager look, golden, bright and clean, with a full white crown. Sweet and malty but otherwise odourless and tasteless. Nowhere near as good as I expected, but still better than some we shared during the evening.

Taboada (923) - Compostela (Galiza), - SEP 11, 2014
330 mml can tasted on 08/09/2014. Typical spanish lager with blond appearance with low body and medium carbonation. The taste is malty and grainy with a good intensity. Next one please!

Watery, tasteless. Good colour and foam though. Just to drink when there is nothing else around.

ShivanDragon (3426) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
@Spanje, blikje, 33cl, 5.4%, schenkt gouden met witte kraag, te weinig koolzuur om de kraag te voeden. aroma is moutig, nou niet echt bijzonder eigenlijk; eerder wat onaangename kenmerken. smaak is metalig(moutig), zwak bitter, iets onaangenaams, licht zoet, glad, néé ben er niet weg van, ook iets van nat gras, lichte body, lage co2.

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2014
330ml bottle courtesy Ashton McCobb. Pours clean pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of honey malt and light lemon. Taste is more of the same. Astringent bitter finish. OK.

Light to medium body. Golden color with intense and balanced carbonation. Sweet aroma, herbaceous with notes of malt. Malt flavor and a hoppy bitterness.

No huele a nada, casi no tiene sabor, lo que la pone por encima de la mayoría de las industriales españolas que huelen a metal y saben a dios sabe qué.

radagast83 (7325) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2014
At Jaleo in Washington DC. Poured a clear, yellow fizzy pour, with a small white head. Aroma was pale malts, grass, slight skunk. Flavor was pale malts, weak hop flavor, mostly just fizzy carbonated water. Inoffensive, for the most part.

330 ml can. L6833511224. BB 17/12/14. (Alcampo) La Zenia, Torrevieja, Spain.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Grainy malt, hay and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is mild grassy hops, earthy notes and sweetish malt. No the worst pale lager...
