330 cl bottle fm supermarket. Color is light yellow with a average white head. Aroma is of soft malts and hops. Flavour is the same, with pleasing bitter aftertaste.

Rating this beer not because I was sure that I couldn’t find it after I actually had it on ratebeer, so I had to refer to my notebook to find out what I wrote about it. Had it in Barcelona about ten months ago. Why I decided to try to find it now is beyond me. Pours bland golden, with frothy white head. Aroma pretty bland and leads you into the very slightly hoppy taste coupled with the undertones of corn... crispy and ’refreshing’, but overall, just another boring beer.

Bottle. Much like just about any European pale lager, or Central American pale lager. Decent with Tapas. Grassy notes, no hop taste. Fine, inoffensive, plain.

Draught in some dodgy bar in dodgy ex pat haven on Costa del Sol. One of the better spanish beers I’ve thus far tasted, but frankly that ain’t sayin much brudda. The note of bitterness saves it from utter mediocrity and makes it just about drinkable. Just stick to the wine in spain methinks.

theisti (3766) - Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Draft at Cafe Ba Ba Reeba in the Las Vegas Fashion Show Mall. Pour is darker golden with a ton of carbonation small bubbles. Small white head collapses right away. Aroma dusty dirty, mineral mild hop aroma. Chemical dirtiness shadows the nice earthy hops. Taste is a lot cleaner, more bright mineral earth hops and watery malt. Nice mineral element to the aftertaste. Reminds me of a Stella quite a bit. Palate is light, watery brief - taste is clean and refreshing enough.

Goba (71) - BRAZIL - OCT 21, 2009
Unimpressive beer, very pale yellow body, almost no foam and the scent was very weak malt and little hop. The taste was slim to none, very weak lager, with quite a lot of water. Aftertasteless, almost, save for little malt and little hop. Nothing absolutly wrong, but no justification for much more than 1.7.

Nekronos (3967) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 20, 2009
Nt bad, a little too corky in taste and bitter but not floral. Can be annoying after several bottles.
