I am from the city where it is made and I love its taste. Maybe this is because I am used to it but I love it.

Cerveza especialmente indicada para paladares expertos. Posiblemente la mejor rubia fabricada en España.

Para mi esta cerveza es la mejor de España, con diferencia. Se caracteriza por un sabor único con tono fuerte, con carácter. Carece de una presentación buena en botella normal y corriente. En Aroma es respetable consiguiendo el olor a cerveza pura.

GoufCustom (823) - HONG KONG - JAN 13, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Aeon in KCP, Kowloon City.

Golden yellow color; Near zero head and residual white foam which last for about 10 seconds; No lacing with slight carbonation; Slightly pungent smell of malt, with slight grains, bread, lemon and light grass; Near zero sweet taste of malt, with light grains, strong bread and dough, very light lemon and faint grass; Close to light body. Thin, very dry and crisp palate; Mouth feel is surprisingly un- macro, with strong malt, no sweetness, low grains, very dry akin to Asahi Super Dry – perhaps more so - and very bready and doughy. How about that! Hoppiness is very light lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Some shades of bitterness but because that’s no sweetness so that’s okay. Just dry bready finish; Very dry after taste. Easy, fulfilling and crisp to mouth.

Comments: Talk about shocker and this is one of those. It has all the niceties of an ideal Pale Lager - lean, dry, clean, bready, nice to mouth, no bad after taste - it has all and then some! So dry it’ll make Asahi Super Dry nervous, so doughty it’ll put many macro Premium Lagers to shame. Very enjoyable and highly recommended!

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.
