3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Green 330ml bottle. Dark golden pour with a considerable, full sized white frothy head which is long lasting. Lots of clinging sticky lacing stuck on the glass. Smells pretty clean with a light grass hop scent. medium sweet malt character with bread and grain notes. Citrus hop accents, imparting a light lemon note to the brew. Some lemony and grassy aftertastes. Medium body, medium carbonation. Does not show its 6.4% strength and remainsa approachable and drinkable, and looks good in the process.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear golden. Aroma of graininess, alcohol, acetone, sweetish flavor, grainy, with alcohol. Rather light-bodied, slightly sticky.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden color with large soapy white head, fair lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grassy, grainy and dusty. Taste starts moderate sweet grainy with toasted malts’ note, following is grassy sour and dusty, mouhfeel is dry, while finish is moderate bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. This one looks nice, but sinks into oblivion after few sips...

Very sweet nose. Golden beer, no carbonation. Solid white head. Oily texture, malty taste. Aftertaste is slight hops and more malt. Alcohol is present throughout. Not bad, not outstanding.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blonde body with ok head. I wasn’t expecting much from this, but it was a surprisingly crisp and well-balanced, easy-drinking pilsener--an excellent complement to seafood. Clean, feintly floral, and crisp finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambar, dos dedos de espuma. El aroma es cereal. En boca es potente, con cuerpo apreciable y agradable sabor tostado y cereal, de predominio dulce pero sin empalagar. De hecho se bebe muy bien, pese al alcohol (fenomenal si está helada). En general es una buena cerveza, disponible en cada vez más bares dada su creciente popularidad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 Bottle. Fairly standard appearance, medium carbonation. The aroma is reminiscent of butter and comfortably hoppy. Clear liquid, appetising. The taste is better than other lagers around here, definitely a good choice among other similar beers. Bitterness is fresh and not overwhelming, typical for a lager, and the flavours are well-developed (while not as complex as those in ales, these are arguably good for a regular lager). The texture is pleasantly thin, which renders it very drinkable and refreshing.
I’d recommend this lager instead of other Spanish ones, since it is very nice and interesting. In Spain, it is widely available in most bars/restaurants.
