33cl bottle. Pours golden with very gentle bubbles and a thin white head which disappears fairly quickly. The nose is a bit sweetcorn but not too much and quite a big malt profile. The taste is more of the pale malt with a light lemon/grass note on the end. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a clean finish though the finish drops more quickly than expected.

Can from a supermarket in Los Boliches, Spain. Clear pale golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Mslty caramel aroma, fruity, bready, some peas. Thin malty bready flavor with caramel and paper notes. Thin bodied and quite boring.

In Legado de Yuste glass. Playing KB Dark Side. Drinkable macro beer. Not much else to say

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Color amarillo pálido con un par de dedos de espuma de baja retención. Aroma malteado. Sabor también, con bastante presencia de maíz que le da un tono dulzón. Bastante bebible, algo aguada. La cerveza básica del grupo y también claramente la peor, aunque compite bien con el resto de lagers industriales básicas españolas.

Premium ist hier erstmal nix. Aber eigentlich ist es recht klassisch trinkbar fuer den Ottonormalurlauber. Malz, etwas Getreide, ein wenig Zucker - alles ok hier. Perlung ausgeglichen. Kein Klassiker halt.

McTapps (5734) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
The beer has got a clear deep golden colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of malt, hops, bread, mild fruits and straw. Easy drinkable, refreshing.

While the Alhambra fortress of Grenada is certainly something worthwhile to experience, the same can't be said about this eponymous beer from that ancient city. Southern Spain's regional alternative to Mahou, perhaps a better option than Sevilla's Cruzcampo. A light and bland pale lager, pours a bright yellow with spritzy head, smells sweet and flowery. Minimal hops or bitterness throughout, but has a slightly more enjoyable sweet malt flavor compared to Spain's other industrial brews, and is usually fresh-tasting. Still weak in every category. Drinks like water, good for quaffing down with a meal due to it's light body. Probably cheaper than water in most cases too; points for being economical if nothing else.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells like nothing. Pale amber in colour, the foam is bubbly and white. The cheap tropical pilsner taste is very standard, and the aftertaste is too long and sticky.

Well it’s light and flavorless. Quick finish and a little bit sweet. No hops and only a bit carbonated.
