Anemic with a little sparkle. This has a sugary aroma - similar to Corona, et al. Ingredients include rice (no surprise) and E-405. Urrggh!

Its the typical spanish beer, the type more commonly served in small frozen glasses called ícañasí and drinking it is more a means to wash down your favorite tapa then an end in itself. As such these types of beers tend to be quite refreshing, easy to drink, but with very little substance.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Standard appearance and a watery aroma, but overall the beer is not particularly hoppy or either chemically tasting, but generally refreshing.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very faint hazy amber colour with a small short lasting white head. Wood and dusty faint aged caramel malt aroma. This beer has more of an aged Brit ale than a lager character and palate with relativley low carbonation and a medium smooth soft body. Mild malty sweet flavoured start, slightly sour bitter middle and blandish chemically dry finish. Itís certainly different but not sufficient or good enough to really stand out.

Really nothing special here, but among standard lagers, I thought there were a couple of nice touches in this one--a hint of perfume in the aroma (perhaps interpreted by some as chemical). Typically tapas bar stuff.

This stuff is pretty awful.Itís really cheap and does the trick.Good for backpackers in Spain looking to save some cash on beer.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Neutral flavour, but the finish has a very unpleasant bitterness with a chemical touch.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Awful stuff. It was either this or the equally bad Dorada Especial at most places in Tenerife. Tastes like a mediocre malt liquor.

At first it tastes nice - but you soon realise it is too heavily carbonated and leaves a poor aftertaste.
