2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sold in the stores of El Corte Ingles, where You can also get Mahou clasica. Can states clearly the beer is made by mahou. also "With the guarentee of mahou" whatever that means. Either this is a beer of its own, or it should be an alias of mahou clasica.
Pale yellow, small fluffy white head.
aroma:sweet, faint bitter hops, faint alc bitterness.
flavor: sweet, caramelly, faint bitterness, very faint metallic note.
I compared head to head, el corte ingles and mahou clasica. bought from the sae shelf in the same store, and tasted at the same teperature at the same time in two different glasses. The two beers are much the same. The el corte ingles beer is a little lighter yellow, it is a bit more bitter from alc,both in flavor and aroma. As the two cans were brewed on different dates, this could be the reason. The two cans 33cl are physically not the same as if they were fro two different botteling plants. The opener is square on the clasica, while it is round on the el corte. The imprint on the top is not the same too. the bottom part of the cans is different.
For a discount lager, sort of a little vienna like, this one is fine-fine.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml can, from Super Cor, La Manga. ABV is 4.8%. Golden colour, low head. The aroma has some malts, otherwise it is "industrial" and uninteresting. The flavour is maltier than the Aliada Tipo Pilsen (which was displayed side by side), and there are some hops in the finish - unfortunately the bitterness is metallic and unpleasant.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Die Dose sieht billig aus, aber hässlig ist sie nicht. Geschmacklich beitzt es einen etwas anderen Malzgeschmack als wie er bei deutschen Bieren meist vertreten ist, das liegt wohl an dem anderen Klima, im verlauf des Tests wird es noch etwas herb.
Test vom 23.5.2009, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 7,7,6,7,7,6 - 6,45
