3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fancy green embossed 33cl bottle: poured @ home into a Duvel glass on 16 Nov 2012. Looked fine, in fact it looked good, a nice clear, clean, light amber body waith a full white head (at first).
The aroma was of malts and nuts, with a mini yeast presence in the smell as well.
The taste was more malts than hops with the alcohol content also being detectable in the mouth feel. Fairly thin for a ísuper lagerí and Iím sure three 33cl bottles would give almost anyone a hangover, even so I quite enjoyed the thing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice old-style bottle. Pours a clear golden color, topped with about two fingers of white frothy head. A very mild malty aroma, some grainy notes and slightly smelly. The taste is sweet, doesnít feel like 6,4% really. Nice bitterness in the end, but very unpleasant metallic/alcohol aftertaste. Not bad all together.

Looks like a plain pilsener, but tastes a little different, with a slight sweetness, a bit like fruit tea.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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...
