2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle from Richmond Beverage in Richmond, VT (May 2008), served cold in an Allagash glass. Pours clear, slightly oily-looking light gold, small to moderate snowy head is surprisingly long-lasting....corn-sugar noticeable in aroma, but some faint fresh grassiness helps matters considerably....light bitterness on the tongue helps cut thick almost-cloying sweetness, but doesn’t offer much in the way of real hop presence....dull mouthfeel, not much of a finish, but not terrible either.

Golden pour from draft at Emilio's. Super bright with white head. Grassy and lager wheat taste. Not bad. Has decent flavor

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ home. Pours golden with a clear white head. Taste is malty, with a light sweet aroma. Light hops, average carbonation. Although it looks fancy and it tastes ’different’ from most pilseners, this beer is surely not as good as it pretends to be.

Leicht malziger Geruch. Im Geschmack dann nichts. Zum Ende bitter, kaum Hopfen. Keine Fehler, aber unendlich langweilig.

This is widely available outside Spain. The quality fluctuating from batch to batch. If it is on sale - be careful, you might not like it. Malty hoppy and fruity to some extent. Nothing much to say.

500ml can. Average lager. Clear and golden, minimal head. Nothing special, but much better than San Miguel....

Bottle @ home. Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, grain. Tastes the same. Bit to sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
"Jewel in the crown", "universally appreciated", "finest selection of raw materials", and "meticulous brewing process". Maybe if these ass clowns spent less time writing flowery descriptions full of false promises, and more time working on their recipes, then this beer wouldn’t suck. But they don’t, so it does. I would like to meet one of these "numerous generations of master brewers".....so that I can kick him square in the nuts for being a pretentious idiot responsible for making crappy beer. If the description for this beer were "this tastes like piss, but it’s cheap!" then I’d probably give it 4/5. But for what it claims to be, I should give it a 0.5/5. Let’s go with 1.5.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a one finger head of fizzy foam that fades very fast. Upon fading it leaves a very light level of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is a mix of a grainy, bready and slightly hay-like smells. Along with these aromas comes some smells of a light fruitiness and a little bit of a grassy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter and fruitier taste with a little breadiness backing up the sweet. .The sweet is mainly of a caramel taste with the fruit being of a more apple and apricot flavor. As the taste advances some light earthy and herbal flavors come to the tongue and in the end, leave a rather crisp but fruity and sweeter flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the crisp nature, the thinner body is quite nice, although for the lager style a little more carbonation may have made it slightly more refreshing. Overall the feel was decent.
Overall – Crisp and refreshing, but nothing all that extraordinary here. A decent summer party brew.
