1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml. bottle, pours a golden colour with almost no head. Smell of hop and herbs and some skunky thing. Medium body, boring palate. Taste of malt and some caramel. So, smell of hops, taste like malts and it pretends a pale ale when it really looks a like a common lager and if it wasn’t for the sweetness it would taste like a common lager. Confusing? Yes. And bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. To put it simply, this is a pale ale which doesn’t deliver. Not much hops to be find. Sessionable but with nothing to it. Not good

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden beer with good white head. Slightly weak aroma. Fruity nuances but a metallic off flavor. In mouth it presents a dry and a little bit sour flavour. Good bitterness for the style. Very light bodied and quite low carbonation. Good taste but aroma and palate make me not enjoy it.

Una cerveza amarillo claro con espuma blanca. Tiene un cuerpo ligero y fino gas que la hacen refrescante. Olores y sabores cítricos y amargos. Sabor poco intenso. Refrescante.

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.
