3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Light, not ambitious pilsener. Good for sauna. Not much to tell about aroma or taste - well a little bit watery.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Jaune claire avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme des céréales, un goût similaire. L’après goût est dégueux, un peu métallique comme une bière désalcoolisé bon marché.

A light simple lager for a summer day with some friends and a small talk. Nothing special but drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a yellow body, with a low frothy head that leaves no lace at all. Poor malty and metallic aroma, along with a light metallic taste, with notes of corn. Very thin bodied, medium carbonation, watery texture, corny aftertaste. I’m definately getting sick of poorly made lagers.
