330 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, grass and some hay. Flavour of grainy malts, sweet honey, cardboard, grass and hay. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Decent and easy-going pale lager.

Can from Carrefour in Madrid. Bright golden body with big head. Nose is corny and dry. Taste is also dry, malty, wheat and spices. Okay.

ComradeK (1084) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2012
330ml bottle Pours a clear light gold, with a small and rapidly fading white head, which leaves little lace. The aroma has some white bread and a rather off metallic note. Artificial lemon hops and some spice up front lead into a fairly uninteristing grainy body. A pretty dull lager.

Uit een flesje. Iets donkerder dan pils. Goede plakkerige kraag. Ruikt hoppig. Smaakt tamelijk bitter en vol. Goed te drinken

Soft pale Lager, much better from Tap than from bottle, but good. Available especially in the south of Spain

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2012
On tap at a bar in Granada. Pale golden colour and a small white head. Aroma of regular lager, maybe a bit more sour. Taste is balanced, no particular tastes that comes through alone. A bit boring maybe, but okey if i have few choices.
