2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Spanish beer, it’s just not very good. That feeling of going into a tapas bar and thinking, hmm it’s warm and I’m thirsty, let’s have a beer before moving on to the red, it can’t be that bad, surely? And yet somehow it always disappoints, why didn’t I have a nice Albarino or some chilled red and a big glass of water?
This one is pretty boozy and syrupy, feels like a headache before you start, slightly corny but actually not the worst hot country lager I’ve had.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper color with moderate head. Aromas of cereal, toasted malts and cotton candy. Sweet flavors of malt,corn syrup, and candied fruit. Full for a lager. Not normal for me and a lager but nice...

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Tesco in Ryde shared with McTapps. Honestly, I have never tasted piss-like stuff which had that high abv. The only aromas i have found in are rice, malt and corn. A thin and watery aftertaste containing bread and some toast finishes that one off. Absolute waste of time and money. This one should not be named reserva, more likelly something like reserve squad.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Tesco in Ryde. Pours out in a clear light amber-golden colour with low, steady head and medium to thin body. Aroma of hops and grains. Taste of sweet hops, sweet bread, malt, wheat, light abrley and flowers. Herbal finish with unpleasant acid hints. Might be refreshing when you are really thirsty but otherwise it is rather awful stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dorée-medium, carbonation moyenne, mousse blanche à grosses bulles disparaissant rapidement.
Nez malté céréales et agrumes, goût similaire avec une légère amertune peu persistante.
Bonne pale lager industrielle, mais manque de corps.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle at some tapas bar in Barcelona. The green, etched label bottle is pretty cool. That’s about all the nice things I can say though. Pours a dark gold with some white head that completely faded fast. Nose of grass, corn, some malt, a bit skunky too. Flavor is the same, lemon, malt, cracker, grass, skunk. Watery finish.
