2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned 330ml. -from local shop in Calella, Spain. I saw it in 4-pack in Lisboa and thoght to buy it later...but after that I haven’t seen it for more than a week, and in meanwhile I’ve been in 30-40 shops/supermarkets... Was my search worth it - honestly, not really...Reddish brown coloured, medium sized tan head, mild malty nose. Light roasted malt, strong caramel and discreet fruity presence with sweet finish. Too sweet overall.

Little beige head. Nice brown colour. Light malty aromas but it becomes better in mouth. Not very bitter and a little sweety. It seems stronger than it is. Good refreshing beer!
