Aroma has starchy tones and grainy malt. Flavour has grainy malt, some starch and hints of cardboard. Also some sweet corn tones. Quite typical for a pale lager from an exotic country. And no, this is not a pils in any way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best beer on the island. A decent pilsner for an African island. Colour and Appearance are decent, initial taste and body of this beer have some weakness but all in all a good beer in the sun on a hot day.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Lanzarote. Very disappointed, not very good. Smells and tastes like malt liquor. Not bad to drink with spicy or flavorful food or tapas- okay bitterness, but not good on its own. Had it in a bottle and it was worse than the can. Sad as it is the local beer of the CAnary Islands. They could do better!!!
