Without comparing it to other lagers, Spain impresses you very quickly. A slightly bitter aftertaste, but goes down smooth. Yellow/Gold appearance with a frothy head.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2004 Gold color with a big lasting white head. Malt (bread/corn) aroma. Flavor is a little sweet, malty and has a little bitterness. Has a little hop bitterness in the finish too. Very good for a lager.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Pale golden color with a nice sized head that stays much longer than most lagers. LAcing all the way down the glass. The aroma has a solid european malt background and a quieted adjunct presence. The hops don't stand out much in the aroma. The flavor is has a light hint of DMS but is a well rounded buscuit malt profile. Finishes lightly bitter from the hops. This was a very nice international lager, I wasn't expecting this tasty treat.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Dark golden color. Slight hoppy aroma.Taste is somewhat sweet with a touch of hops.A bitter feel hits the mouth as you near the end.Finishes clean and a little dry. Would be great with spicy food.

Looks and smells like Bud...tasted very bitter and overcarbonated. A pass for me.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Hoppy/pine taste very golden looking with a sweet after taste. Again, 75 characters needed to keep this on my list.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Served very cold on a hot day. Was a nice gold color with a bit of head. The first taste was one of a sharp bitterness on the front of the tongue. What followed was a subdued sweetness with a bit of corn flavor. Not very complex, actually downright simple. Was ok beer. Really not much to say about it. Pass it and go for something with a bit more character.

skortila (4436) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2003
Decent lager. Malty, hoppy pilsnerstyle aroma, not really skunky. Clear golden colour, good head. Taste is hopbitter, malty and a moderate bitter palate. Okay.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2003
a very good beer, it tastes to me like a mexican beer tastes, even has the same smell. in my opinion this tastes like dos equis lager with more alcohol, a very good beer.
