2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Neutral colour of gold and aroma of hops. But it has got a very interesting taste of ice-cream.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Very interesting lager with a decent sweetish aroma and taste. Full body with aroma of honey and bubble gum. Nit a rocket but easy to drink. A bit above average.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dirty yellow body and an imbalance head that looks like someone spat in the middle - rather than any disseminating ring. Generic squashed malt nose. Tight carbonation and diluted hop scheming help the initial taste but this crumbles apart completely on the overall palate. Cheap digestive biscuit dryness, tickly finish frantically salvaging some flavour through refreshment but nothing good enough to keenly go back to the pouring.
I really don’t understand what’s premium about this, other than where I bought it and how cheap it was in comparison to the better known bottles on the same shelf.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33 L bottle, in courtesy of yngwie. Thanks mate! Dense yellow-shaded blond head. Shiny, deep gold colored body. Faint bready malts to the nose. Whiffs of metel and grass. Fairly clean, light sourish-sweet malt flavor. Noticable grassy bitterness. Light to medium full. Soft sparkling carbonation. Light astringent endnotes. Not very exciting, but not worse than the similar eurolagers.

No es la Premium Cristal, con eso lo digo todo! Es una cerveza del montón, a la altura de cervezas españolas. Tiene algo más de cuerpo, pero no acompañado de un sabor más estructurado.
