sweet malts, in a cheap tasting way. head is decent...medium golden, flavor is not as thin as i thought it would be.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2004
My third sample bottle from a distributor this evening. Pours yellow with a white head. Nose is rather grainy and dusty. The taste is also somewhat grainy with malt. Not very good at all. I think this was the worst I had this evening. Unpleasantly stale finish. But hey, I picked up Spain as another country - the only positive from this.

bierkoning (10379) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2004
Grainy sweet apple aroma. Grainy and dusty flavor, some sharpness. Skunky vegetable-like aftertaste. Poor quality beer.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2004
The things we do to pick up another country. Any ingredient list that specifically says "maize" doesn't really encourage a lot of hope. Medium yellow, fizzy head. Smells like cornflakes and soggy bread. Flavor is thin, watery, and unpleasantly adjunct laden. Ashy hop finish. Not good.

defCon (19) - Albany, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2003
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 (1517) - 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.

ppcpilot (21) - Port Allen, Louisiana, USA - OCT 14, 2003
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.
