1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, alc. 5.5 % (BB 10/2008)
Pale yellow color, decent, although vanishing white head. Strong aroma of iron, corn and then when it warms up, raw alcohol. Grainy-papery malty flavor and suprisingly quite alcoholic. Harsh alcoholic aftertaste - similar to Baltic/Nordic strong lagers. Also hints of herbal hops. Quite different than their 4.7 % lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nose has some cereal and slight banana. Pours slightly more golden than the less special stablemate. Flavour is like a slightly more mature standard, but still nothing hugely special. A reasonable, bog standard, hot weather lager.

0.33 l can. Golden color with small vanishing head. Some maltiness, alcohol, herbal hops and glue in the aroma. Malty, chewy, estery and lemony flavor. Unpleasant.

A Mes rate: Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08
Fairly hazy blonde with a thin white head. Rather sweet, malty aroma with a bit of paper and veg but inoffensive thankfully. The more I drink of it the more sweet, malty and sickly it gets. Swift finish, thank god.

Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest 08. Slight haze on a gold colour with thin white head. Smells like a pale lager. Bit of lemon. Inoffensive lager. Bit ugly.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
the original version sold in canarias has 5.5 % alcohol; not the best comercial lager, but not bad at all; perfect for a late-afternoon beer with friends in a common sunny day in fuerteventura.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Straw with an OK head. The aroma is mild, the carbonation is high. The flavour is slightly perfumed and moderately bitter. It’s boring, but is served an awful lot of places on Tenerife. 1559

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Head was spare to small with a white slightly frothy sparkle. Spare lacing. Clear slightly sparkling body. Color was pale yellow. Aroma was light straw, hay, grass and cardboard with some notes of sweetness. Light bodied with a thin texture and an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with light notes of bitterness. Short finish. Bit better Cervecera from the Canarias.
