This has got to be one of my favourite bland lagers of the current time. I’ve had the stronger stuff in Spain but this is what they sell over here at my local tesco, with a 3 for 2 offer, so 12 bottles for a tenner, not bad value compared to the other of wishy washy UK lager like Stella, Bud, Carling, Fosters Gold etc which retail at £8 for 12. Granted I haven’t had it in anything other than a bottle, but it’s crisp, with a pleasing lagery taste. It holds well in high quantity, which is very important for me as I tend to drink at least 8-12 bottles in a session. The alcohol content is also pleasing for this purpose, at 4.6 it doesn’t get me as drunk as 5% stuff would, but lasts the same amount of time. It smells like a lazy Spanish afternoon, and would go great with tapas. The colour I assume is pale golden, as the Spanish stuff is. It also has an added benefit in that I’ve had no ill effects the following morning, as I do so often with the now 4.8% major brand lagers that we have in this country, which have also become very metallic. I assume this is because of a lack of chemical filtering. It has corn, and citrus in the nose, very grainy taste, with a mild hint of citrus. Light beer for light summer days. Lovely.

Veldig lys og god øl. Lett drikkelig og passer utmerket på varme sommerdager. Litt skuffende farge

Hiszpańskie piwo z Lidla. Jak to zwykle bywa - cudów nie należy się spodziewać. Oczekiwać można ewentualnie, że nie będzie się nadawać do wylania. I myślę, że tutaj możemy mówić o sukcesie ;) Barwa złota, biała piana na dwa palce. Aromat mocno słodowy, ale nic nie cuchnie, jest ok. W smaku również dominuje słód. Goryczki brak, piwo jest nieco wodniste. Wysycenie średnie. Ale tak naprawdę, nie ma tragedii. Jak na koncernowy lager, jest ok, da się wypić.

Kind of a regular salty Mediterranean lager - fairly good body and refreshing with food.

klukas (79) - Rijeka, CROATIA - AUG 8, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Appearance: Clear bright golden colour, with medium white foam. Aroma: No actual aroma, usual lager (maybe a hint of grains, even citrus?). Palate: Light, watery; moderate carbonation. Taste: Moderate bitter aftertaste, but not much. Overall impression: Light, drinkable, but not very enjoyable. I expected more. Cute bottle and label.

Wendigo (130) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 5, 2016
0.5l can. Light malty aroma. Extra pale yelloq color, no head. Taste is light malty. Light body, extra watery texture, fizzy carbonation, bitter finish. It is not a bad beer, it is an empty beer, like blended with water, strongest is the finish. Difficult to rate, if the aroma and taste is almost missing.
