Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2003
Dry, straw aroma, with alcohol twinge. Interesting gold. Strong metallic twang, a little vanilla, not sweet, hoppy finish. This is looking for food, perhaps pasta or fish.

Holdwine (1071) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Actually, this was not as bad as I thought it would be. Bud could learn something from these folks about the use of corn (which they list right on the label). Comes off well when mixed with varied tapas (as it should). Sweeter lager that isn't too carbonated. Clear gold in color little initial head that fades. I've had worse. Now, about them saying that Spain is one of the best beer-making countries in Europe....

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. It's got quite a bitter bite, more so than expected, but is unfortunately metallic and unbalanced.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2003
This is your typical standard lager, clear and golden with fizzy bubbles, and no character. Very thin body with a peppery bitter finish. It's still drinkable, but not worth any more than BMC.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - FEB 9, 2003
Smells like cleaning fluid. Deep gold color and a low foamy head. Medicinal taste and an unpleasant astringent finish. Thin.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2003
Sweet corn and ammoniak smell and taste. Really unpleasant finish. Head looks like somebody spitted on this brew. Arrrrgh.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2003
it is a normal lager.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2002
O.K., despite the proud addition of "Maize" in the ingredients, this stuff is actually way better than most macro brews from BMC. Mixed in among the sweet corn, it actually has a little bit o’hops in it and a nice dry finish. If I ever go to Spain, I will drink this again.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Add some mayo or sour cream to this beer and it would be a nice salad dressing. I don’t know why exactly, but I think I’d like it.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Very, very dry lager. Corny, which probably also explains the straw taste and hint of cardboard. Straw colored and straw tasting.
