2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Enjoyed this beer quite a bit when I was in Spain. Poured a light gold into the glass with a small white head. Aroma was corny and sweet. The beer was light and refreshing but still had a nice flavor to it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Forgot to rate this bad boy for obvious reasons. On tap at trinity hall, Euro 2008 finals between Spain and Germany. The Spaten and Estrella were flowing. Pours a glowing light yellow honey color with a sort of soapy bright white head. Nose is metal, earth, corn. Taste is actually kind of smooth and crisp. This is really basic and weak as far as taste goes and kind of off flavored, but at least it is refreshing? Dammmmm

11.5 oz bottle @ Cafe Iberico Chicago. Nothing impressive here! Pale golden colour with a foamy white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of grass. Grassy bitter flavor, but too watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear golden color with a one finger thick white head. Has some lively, tiny bubbled carbonation. Decent lacing. Aroma is sweet grain and light herbal hops. Flavor is pretty good. Grain flavor that isn’t too sweet with a light herbal hop presence. Palate is creamy and a touch dry. Medium body. This beer is better than the score reflects.
