MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Darker gold than expected, puffy head. Sweet nose, lots of chemicals. Little flavor, and the flavor that’s there would be better served if it just took a walk and came back later. Sweet, then dies under a toxic wall of chemical garbage. This is what you get if you brew a beer with weed killer and you do a really, really bad job brewing it. Yecch.

Like Mulman, had this at a fancy tapas bar in Chicago where they talked it up and down. OK for a beer from Spain. Typical lager. It did go well with the food that we ate.

highlandlad (1417) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2005
One of the better Mediterranean lagers. Certainly one of the best-looking. Poured pale gold with a 2cm head that showed good retention and actually laced. Aroma showed more hop character than is typical of the region, with some biscuity malt fading to wet cardboard and maize. Flavour is sweet initially, with lots of upfront malt and maize. Restrained finish. Of its style and region, this is pretty bloody good. Nice hop-malt balance. (330ml bottle, Randwick Cellars, best before Oct 05)

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2005
bottle, at a fancy tapas bar in NYC called ~n, where they think this is a special beer. pale yellow color, white foamy head and sudsy lacing. aroma is dead grass, metallic. flavor is dry straw, metallic. lots of carbonation.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2005
I am going against the grain here by stating that I enjoyed this beer. I found it to be well presented in the glass as most beers tend to be but the nose and flavour were surprsing. Goodmaltiness and a real crispness that surpassses most of the Euro pale lagers. Subtly dry in the finish and the sort of beer that would be a welcome accompaniment to a barbecue or some fresh shellfish.

hotstuff (4139) - Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2005
Bottle. Poured a small sized white head, sparse lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, cloudy, carbonated, and a straw yellow hue. Malty, hoppy, sweet aroma. Flavor was malty. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Just a regular lager.,.. from Spain. Hoppy, lots of carbonation. Not much malt. Light, refreshing, if you like Bud/Coors/Miller you can drink this and pretend you like real berr... hell it’s from Europe isn’t it?

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2005
Yes presentation is fine but it doesn’t get any better after that. I don’t know what selected hops they chose to put in this cos all I can pick up is the malt and the maize.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 This is a fine looking brew, but then you’re left with your basic dead skunk in the middle of the road, and it’s stinking to high heavens.

This probably tasted better for me because I was drinking it in a Tapas Bar last night. But yeah it’s not very inspiring,however you can taste the maize in it.
