A Spanish Bock, or an Amber Lager, or a Vienna Lager. Whatever it is, it is very refreshing and tasty.

Bottle. Pours clear amber. Aroma of malt, bread and treacle. Slightly sweet taste with a touch of sour. Found this to be a decent beer to drink while in tenerife and certainly a big step up from dorada.

(Cas) Cuando la bebí de joven fue todo un descubrimiento, ya que no me gustó nada debido a su intenso sabor, pero con el tiempo he aprendía a disfrutarla y a no dejarme llevar por las primeras impresiones. (Gal) Cando a bebín de mozo foi todo un descubrimento, xa que non me gustou nada debido ó seu intenso sabor, pero co tempo aprendín a disfruta-la e a non deixarme levar polas primeras impresions.

Tricker (376) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
Bière dorée de 6.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un petit col au versement. Elle possède un odorat sucré, légèrement amer. Elle possède un goût moyennement amer, style limette. Il y a également un petit goût torréfié, mélangé à l’amertume et un goût de malt. Son goût est simple, mais elle est enivrante. Finale légèrement salée. Rafraîchissante avec une petite tranche d’orange et/ou d’agrumes.

pumpkinhead2 (748) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Bière jaune-orangée, véritablement ambrée, parfaitement limpide, bonne effervescence belle et uniforme, et surmontée d’un col blanc cassé, pas tellement large, mais bien dense, mousseux et persistant. Arômes de pain légèrement grillé, céréale sucrée, léger sucre fruité (baies, petits fruits, fraise… tendance réglisse rouge…), houblon végétal et aromatique, tendance floral… Par moment, les effluves prennent davantage la direction du grain rôti voire de la noisette. Nez agréable, complexité intéressante, mais l’intensité est faible, ça en devient difficile de bien apprécier les arômes. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, breuvage bien mousseux, onctuosité plutôt faible au palais. Au goût, pain légèrement grillé, céréale sucrée, petits fruits et réglisse rouge, accompagné d’un houblon végétal (branchage, feuillage…) et floral. Bref, ça rejoint pas mal le nez! Amertume minimale au cours d’une finale où transperce surtout l’alcool, mais celui-ci reste tout de même agréable et bien intégré. Par moment, il me semble également déceler quelques saveurs de foin. Bon goût, complexité moyenne en bouche, intensité qui y est heureusement bien supérieure par rapport au nez. Bière plutôt sucrée qui ne cache pas nécessairement son relativement haut taux d’alcool. Sans rien avoir d’extraordinaire, elle est quand même bien bonne!

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle: Poured a bright amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention. Aroma of light grainy notes with light diacetyl notes is more or less pleasant. Taste is also grainy with some diacetyl notes and a thin finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. I was not a big fan of the malt bill used in this beer.

AlfredoGarcia (254) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 17, 2016
AMber color with decent foam. Lager smell, but well done, sweter and more consistent. Taste is of a good lager, citric ending and honey and nuts in mouth.

mathieuc (3131) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a very clear strong golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is skunk-like for the first few sniffs but transforms into bready cereals after that. Some alcoholic notes here and there. Light corn impressions. Taste is of sweet caramel, cereals and is lightly bitter. Some alcohol again. Lager fruitiness. Clean enough but that isn’t saying much. Moderate body, medium carbonation. A boring caramel-driven lager with no real problems.

tom10101 (5000) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle (330 ml) bought at an SAQ store. Clear orangey-golden with a small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is grainy and quite corn/sweet forward. There’s also mild herbalness and a white grapes impression. Taste is moderately sweet with a bit of an honeyed presence, but also unfortunate sweet corn impression, herbal notes and a bit of alcohol. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Grainy finish with lingering sweetness. A bit of alcohol heat. It might be horrible because of the travel but it’s at least mediocre at start to end up as bad. Unbalanced, too sweet and the corn impression is unpleasant. Down the drain...

Panzerfaust (784) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 5, 2016
330ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center as "Hijos de Rivera 1906 Reserva Especial". Pours a clear copper color with a medium off-white frothy head that disappears quickly and leaves an irregular lacing. Aroma is malty, grainy and nutty. Clear notes of cereal grains, corn, almonds, walnuts and some roasted sugars. Not strongly caramelly by all means, and hops are not present at all. Taste is well balanced with some restrained sweetness, and some low nutty bitterness. Nice flavors of nuts, toasted bread, a bit of red apples. It has some nice attack but ends up a bit watery. Some alcohol presence is felt. Overcarbonated unfortunately. It stings. Almost medium bodied. A correct, even enjoyable Vienna with a few flaws.

Eructoblaster (3709) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle - 330ml. Light amber, limpid body with heavy carbonation and an average, fading, white frothy/bubbly head. Bland malty/hoppy aroma with corny, sweet, and grassy hints. Its fair malty/hoppy taste carries herbal, sweet, and some woody notes. Alcohol is noticeable. Ends with a short bittersweet, metallic finish. Drinkable, at the most.
