hopscotch (10080) - 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 (8598) - 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 (1374) - 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 (5541) - 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 (3378) - 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.

madsberg (10708) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Bottled. (Txh to Ungstrup for this free bottle). Light golden coloured. Light hazy. Fluffy off white head. Aroma is light grainy and light fruity. Has some vague spicy notes. Flavour has light flowery notes and some vague caramel. Is medium to thin bodied. Sweet and fruity end with no bitterness whatsoever.

patrick767 (3727) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2007
bottle - Pours pale yellow and a really hard pour yielded a moderately sized head with some lacing. The aroma is mostly corn. Not too many beers list their ingredients when one of those ingredients is "maize", so at least they’re honest about the cheap adjuncts... I guess. The commercial description of a "dry hoppy lager" seems offbase as there is only a very mild hops taste to be had here. It’s mostly just sweet, corny maltiness. the body is kind of thin and and the finish clean. My bottle says that Spain is "one of Europe’s leading beer-brewing countries". That’s also amusing as I’ve yet to hear of a truly good Spanish beer. In Spain the three beers that virtually every bar I visited had on tap were San Miguel’s, Heineken, and Amstell Light. Yes, only one of those is Spanish. There’s a reason for that...
