2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
.Purchased a can Six-Pack for 67pesos at a Mexican Walmart. This beer has that unmisteakable sour/grassy hop taste that only European Lager have.However the beer ltough was good in aroma kinda strongish for a P-L, has a rough but fitting palate for this kind of beer ,pure and simple,and a bit salty,but good.

Bottled 50cl. Poor bubbly white head. A pretty good pale lager. Highly drinkable and without too many flaws. Decent bitterness. Some nice lacework. Pleasant on a hot day.

Sigh...diversity in geography, but not diversity of taste. As pale lagers go, this one is demonstrably worse than others, with sour-metal corn malt and uncomplementary hops about the only (weakish) flavors present. Assuming that this export (with the admittedly neato super-long-neck bottle) is the Cinco Estrellas [there ARE five stars on the label somewhere). Not a good introduction to Spanishness

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Grainy and too sweet - not particularly pleasant even by the standards of pale lager.

Big can purchased from the convenience store outside my hotel in Madrid. Pours piss lager yellow, which really needs to be its own Crayola color, Aroma is wheatgrass and faintly of lemon. Taste matches the nose well, and the mouthfeel is effervescent. Not overly bitter or funky. Just a good beer to accompany some tapas.

o slogan di questa birra dovrebbe essere "The classic beer-hater’s beer" sarebbe sicuramente più appropriato
