GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
My best friend just returned from Spain and while there he said that the two most popular beers in Spain were San Miquel and this one. So in an effort to see what the Spaniards are drinking, I popped the top on this and gave it a go. Aroma was lightly skunked, corn flakes and suprisingly a hop aroma (albeit very weak). Appearance was yellow, clear and fizzy. Mouthfeel was light, clean. Flavor was mostly corn and malts. Nothing bad, but I don’t see the appeal. Well, I do see the appeal because it’s inoffensive, nearly tasteless and reminded me of the BMC swill here in the States. So this must be the Swill of Spain. Yea for me.

Cybercat (3801) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2007
I poured this into a glass to better appreciate it. Color is a nice golden with a very thick head. Aroma is strong and malty, but not complex - rather typical of a lager. Flavor is mostly malty and fairly bitter; finish is smooth. Not an exceptional or exciting beer, but worth a try.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden colour. Bit sweet and slightly fruitish aroma, wwhich appear a little bit more in the flavour and with a bit more caramel. Simple but ok beer.

hopscotch (9963) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle... Hazy, light golden lager with a small, fluffy, white head. Decent retention. Honey and herbal hop nose with a flavor to match. Leans far onto the sweet side of balance... medium sweet and lightly bitter. Medium-bodied and almost creamy with moderate carbonation. Sweet, watery finish.

toulstrup (15) - Maalov, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is floral, hay and slightly hoppy. Flavor is light sweetness with a medium bitterness in the finish. A pretty standard lager, but would do good as a summer thirstquencer after gardenwork :-)

3fourths (8481) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle. Softer corn and piss nose than Presidente (tasted side-by-side), but still a bit stency and sweaty. Less crisp, more plain and slightly more "frothy", but on the overall scale of frothyness it’s still low. Regular Generic International Lager taste. Drinkable if you’re just thirsty.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2007
How funny. I’m posting my review right after Suttree, and I feel that I could crib his text exactly. An inoffensive typically Spanish pale lager. Thin mouth, sweet malts, floral hops rather than bitterness, nasty metalic finish.

Suttree (5407) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2007
Look, I’m gonna be honest here. I bought this and rated it because I hadn’t had it before. It’s as average as average can be, Hell, you could probably rate it with out even tasting it.

goozen (3257) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2007
Bottle at North End, Leiden, Netherlands: Decent golden Lager from Galicia, Spain, but its a simple fine lager nothing more.

Cajun (197) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - APR 5, 2007
Bottle - Golden with white head. Typical pale lager, but slightly better than, say, Bud or Miller. I’m getting some malt nose, but not much else. Flavor of malt, citrus maybe, fruit hint. Not much hops to speak of. Average brew.
