Tastes strange. Funny aftertaste. not one of the better spanish beers. Unless you like that funny aftertaste, that is...

crazyvin (1994) - New York, USA - AUG 4, 2005
not bad, but really light. I wonder if it has aything to it being a pale lager. some malts little hops really smooth and refreshing. Golden in color with a thin white head.

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Clear, light gold appearance with a small head and surprizingly good lacing. Aroma had a mild maltiness to it with a hint of corn. Bland, but no off flavors in the taste.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 2, 2005
25 ml bottle purchased in Geneva. Poured clear dark yellow with a small and rapidly diminishing white head. Very faint aroma, lightly sweet and grainy - like corn flakes - with a barely detectable floral hoppiness. Flavor was just plain bad, watery with a mild sweetness, but predominantly tasted like wet, metallic cardboard with an astringent woody finish. Light body and agressive carbonation. Not good...

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2005
12 oz bottle. A nice beer to start the evening off with, even if you’re not into plae lagers. Color is cloudy straw with a very short lived head. Taste isnt too bad though, some sour corn but then it seems to corret itself out or my palate got used to it. Nice use of malts, so it’s got that goin for it. Theres just a faint metalic taste but it’s worth overlooking.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2005
Pretty average lager, but not too bad, had more of a bite to it than I would have thought it would. great on this refreshing California night, but not a beer I’d seek out.

ALLOVATE (2476) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2005
Tasted from the bottle and poured into a tall stem glass. Clear medium gold with a ½" soapy white head that stuck around for the length and left a little web. Dry toasted chaff, sweet sugary malt and pasty hop aroma. A little biting carbonation upfront obscured things in it’s otherwise clean mouth feel. Grainy and sweet with a hint of bitter hops, it had an odd alcohol spice to it, hot and medicinal in the back that seemed in reasonable balance with the flavours. Finished off quite crisp and a little sour. Not bad, unlike the normal bland Pale lagers, but still a one dimensional beer that suits the summer months.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2005
MGC under a smallish short lasting white sudsy head. Light sweet malts and faint flowery hop nose. Medium low carb soft palate. Lemonade and malt like sweet start fading quickly to a stale hop bitter with a touch of sweetness back at the end. Doesn’t come anywhere near the commercial description, more like the opposite. probably a fair beer in the mower stakes.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2005
Just a very average lager. Fresh, malthy flavour. Avarage, but not bad. Actually nice to have in the sun :)
