2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
07/12 A 0.33 l bottle at some bar at the main square in Zaragoza. It poured clear yellow body with medium sized head. Weak malty aroma, some fruits, raisins, corn and plastic. Flavor was lightly sweet and acidic, honey, corn and some herbs. Thin bodied with short, rather bitter herbal hop finish. Really wanted to try it, thinking it was something special. I failed.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (330ml from The Way Hostel, Madrid):
There was some corn and grassy aromas once you really made an effort to notice them. Some basic malts made a brief appearance as well and the beer had a ever so slightly skunky aroma to it towards the end.
A pale golden colour with tinges of yellow and a tiny patch of white for a head. The beer is quite clear and has a few bubbles rising to the surface too.
Some cheap malts and a little bit of malts had me thinking this was more of a pale lager than a pilsener. It was poor and pretty bland overall.
Bland on the palate with a slightly skunky feel and some grain in there too. There was a slightl tang to the drink but nothing much if I’m honest.
A rather awful excuse for a beer in my book and I definitely need some clarification on what style of beer this one is meant to be. It tastes, looks and almost smells like a pilsener or pale lager but it claims to be a pale ale so I’m confused. Either way it wasn’t a good beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 330 ml bottle, poured a clear pale amber with a small white head. Not much in the way of aroma, mainly some light grains. That comes through again in the taste, lifted somewhat by some fruity hops. Body is thin and watery. Quite drinkable, but not all that interesting.

33 cl bottle @ vPBF, no BBE info
Aroma is rather strong on butter and some grainy malt. Flavour has grainy malt, some butter and hints of hay. An English Pale Ale? Really? This feels exactly like a Pale Lager.
