I guess I’m rating this crap under the right listing. Mine just said Zaragozana, not Ambar Especial... so I’m going by the ABV. Anyway, not good. Pale (like sickly pale, not hops) and soapy. Watery crap that has a somewhat developed palate, but not even this can save the beer. Not for me, speedy. $1.69 a 12oz

DraftDodger (844) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2016
La Boca restaurant, Los Cristianos, Tenerife 20/3 2016. 50 cl from draft (chilling cold). Pours clear yellow with white head. Evaporates almost completely quite quickly. Sweet Aroma of malts. Pretty neutral. Fizzy carbonation and watery palate. Taste is sweetish. Malty and grainy. Light bitterness and saltiness in aftertaste. Very standard industrial lager. Good for pizza and not much else.

zacgillbanks (4028) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle from Aldi, Washington. Pale golden in colour with a thin white head. It has a sharp sugary sweet fruity flavour followed by a thin slight watery and soapy finish. Not good.

ferrinche (64) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - FEB 8, 2016
Típica lager mediterránea, una cerveza muy plana, le falta cuerpo, pero que siempre son una gran opción para cervezas de diario y para días de calor, ya que entran muy bien.

SilkTork (5499) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2015
330ml dark bottle, filtered, cheap from Aldi. A slightly sweet, slightly malty lager. It’s OK. Drinkable and cheap enough - but a rather small bottle for such an everyday lager.

From Aldi. Slightly orange cordially. Glycerine, boiled sweet, honeycomb melt. Empty release. Heart tragic.
