unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2009
33cl bottle. Clear pale golden color, thin white head. Plain, same old pale lager. Bready aroma, some hops, light malt. Zero nose! First sip is a wammo blammo of bitterness. Not expecting a full hop flavor with such a non-existent aroma. Nice clean malt flavor, overwhelming hop bitterness character. Better than expected.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Clear, dark gold color. Frothy white head. Nice lacing. Malty, sweet aroma - very faint. Crisp and easy to drink but lacks in significant flavor.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2008
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of corn, malts, light caramel, earth, skunk, and grass. Poured gold in color with tiny white film of a head. Clear. Sparkling. Small lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and a bit cloying and lightly bitter. Tastes of corn, caramel, light grass, grains, and a slight spiciness. Light body. Thin, watery, mineral texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, corny, lightly dry finish.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Pours pale yellow with a mostly receding wispy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn, grainy, industrial lager yeast. Taste is lightly metallic, herbal, with a light sweetness. Thin bodied with lively carbonation. Not very impressive.

rlgk (17322) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2008
(EBF 2008) Pale golden, small head. Sweet boring aroma, sweet flavor. About what you can expect from a spanish lager...

sat down at Corona Cigar company with a nice smoke and I must say I expected a little more out of this one - pretty crappy and bitter!

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottle. From SR Liquors bought for a rating. Pale yellow godlen body with a quickly diminishing light white head. Corny malt sweetness no hop or etoh to enjoy here. Pretty useless for purposes of enjoyment.

Maverick34 (2915) - New York, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bottled. Slightly less nasty than Estrella Damm. But definitely not good. Spain, Italy, and Greece are in the running for worst beer nations.

ekstedt (6422) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2008
Draught at EBF 2008. Pale golden, small white head. Bready, papery, sugary, sweet with low bitterness. Yeaek.
