UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 Interesting 330ml bottle which has no paper labels. All information is "carved" directly in the glass. Served in a small chalice.
A: Pours a orange golden color. Clear. Forms a medium creamy fluffy and aired head leaving many spotty chunks of foam and some lacings in the glass
S: Sweet and biscuity. Notes of honey. Lager yeasts. Flowery hops
T: Sweet upfront. Notes of honey, caramel malts and bready Lager yeasts. End is slightly bitter
M: Light to medium body. Medium to high carbonation. Sweet malts aftertaste
O: Medium drinkability. Not a beer that Iíll drink againr

I guess a bit cleaner than the original. Though, thereís not much noticeable difference and there isnít anything extra special about this. Itís pretty common. Clean, light pilsner style. The higher alcohol might be the difference. Straw, sweet, short finish.

Spanish beer, itís just not very good. That feeling of going into a tapas bar and thinking, hmm itís warm and Iím thirsty, letís have a beer before moving on to the red, it canít be that bad, surely? And yet somehow it always disappoints, why didnít 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 Iíve 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...

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.

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.
