2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold. Nose very sweet, a bit sour. Flavor is reasonably decent, some bright fruit, quite grassy. Too sweet, per usual, but certainly not awful.

Bottle. Golden colour with a slim bubbly white head. Sweet malts and a pretty intense whiff of some fruit or other, possibly apple. Sweet and malty taste with some grassy hops and a touch of spice. Light bodied but not thin. Better than I was expecting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice golden color,small but long lasting white head.The aroma was light malt with some hops and a some what floral side.The taste was malty with a bit of a caramel side and hops with a somewhat bitter side coming on towards the middle.Nothing great but still doable,it’s worth tossing atleast one back for laughs.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color with a fluffy/spritzy off white head. Caramel and dry malt aromas. Mild malt sweetness with a touch of herbal/grassy hops. Very much a euro style lager.

Pours yellow with a very thin white head. Almost non-existent. Some light malt and a hint of apple in the aroma. Fairly bland flavor but with a hint of fruit and spice that makes this one stand out just a bit from the standard pale lagers out there. I still don’t see myself purchasing this anytime soon.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is a bright yellow with a white head. Aroma is a thin bit of malt. Flavor has a apple cider bitterness to it that does give it a distinct taste. Probably an above average pale lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Warm golden color with giant tower of foam. I swear there’s a hint of pepperoni in the aroma; there indeed is some incongruent spiciness to this otherwise standard lager ...

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
An ok pale lager, earthy, more hopped than I would expect, for a spanish beer. I was pleasantly suprised by this one, nothing great, but not bad!

Described to me as a pilsner, and it was good enough to fool me. On the high end for the category, the beer is yellow, and has some hop bitterness. Now I finally have the elusive Spain rating.
