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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

Just a very average lager. Fresh, malthy flavour. Avarage, but not bad. Actually nice to have in the sun :)

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.
