2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cL bottle; couldn’t make out the bb date, but seems to end in 05. Nice fresh, light malt aroma accompanied by noble hop. Darkish brassy gold color with a white head that quickly flattened. Near medium bodied, with moderate, creamy carbonation. It starts very fresh, with a grapey, fruity note. The malt is only moderately sweet, and it seems the hops are fruit and floral. The finish is crisp, clean, and has enough bitter to balance. Actually a pleasure to drink this one. Probably because there was enough floral character to reward an ale palate. It is good stuff, and I might prefer it to some of the lighter, relatively tasteless, ales.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 33 cl. bottle with a freshness date in the bottom center of label, sampled at a cool cellar temperature in a pint glass.
Poured a clear lager golden with a foamy, bubbly white head that slowly settled into a thin lacing.
Aromas of husky grain, honey buttery, lightly spicy and floral.
Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
I find the taste to be more Euro Pale Lager than American Macro Lager, sweet pale malty and grainy, a little lemon honey buttery, mild herbal, spicy hops that provide a nice cleansing bite at the end, dry and clean in the finish.
An average, drinkable Euro Pale Lager, refreshing on this hot and humid late spring day.

better than the average spanish brew, lil bit of pale flavor to it, wasnt a fan of the bitter aftertaste or the smell, which warns would be drinkers away.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
OK, lets go to spain. I didn’t know spain had so many beers imported into pennsylvania. 12 oz brown bottle, oops I mean 11 oz (rip off!). Poured a hazy brown, light orange, yellow in my steeler stein (130000). Smells like it may have lots of alky in it, sort of strong ale-ish. It sure smells stronger than the rating on this site. The haze clears after a few minutes. The initial taste also seems to indicate there is more alky in there than what is stated. The flavor is a bit industrial or unrefined. Turns into a bitter bite after an average flavor start. Nice beginning impression that fades into an ungentle continuing plateau. Finish hangs for a while. OK beer, worth a try.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Another European Pale lager that has all of the characteristics of the American Pale Lager: Light herbal hopping, light bready caramel maltiness, big carbonated mouthfeel (in a blatant attempt to distract from the lack of flavor or texture), a corny adjunct flavor and a quick dry finish. The only advantage here is a unusually beefy ABV for the style.

Can: a bit better than expected from a Spanish brewer, some flavour but still a lot of artificial aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sample at Gourmet Food & Wine Expo. Yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma is fairly sweet with a hint of herbal hops. Decent mouthfeel with good carbonation. Flavour of sweet, fresh malt with a quick finish. Not bad for a mainstream Euro-lager.
