caramel, banana, golden, white foam, lightly bitter, average carbonation. Pleasing aroma, but very distant and difficult to grasp. Middle-of-the-road taste, abrupt finish. Would probably be a good, safe choice for a long night of tipping back.

Clara de color oro pálido, espuma blanca algo más persistente que el resto de comerciales espańolas. El aroma es dulce a malta con algunas notas cítricas y fruta. Carbonatación media. Acuosa. El sabor dulzón de maltas con notas cítricas muy discretas. Un clásico.

Zlotta (2255) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2016
On tap at ’McDonald’s’ (Girona Airport). Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, slightly creamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy and a bit floral aroma of fresh grass, grains and some citrus. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy and a bit floral taste of fresh grass, citrus and some grains, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite nice actually!

Gezapft in einer Hotel Bar in Madrid. Malssüße in Aroma und Geschmack, etwas bitter im Abgang. Für ein Pale Lager ist es okay.

The_Osprey (6574) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
330ml bottle at home in Richmond, as ’Mahou ***** Cinco Estrellas 1890 Cerveza Especial’, 5.5%, BB Jan 2017. Golden orange, translucent, lightly sparkling, very large off-white head leaving nice lacework. Aroma is airy with some damp clothes, carpet underlay, vague cereals. Body is light, spritzy carbonation, touch foamy. Taste is sugary and nutty malt up front, some white pepper, a touch gluey. I have to say - this has a lot more flavour than the majority of mass produced pale lagers. Not fantastic by any means, but better than expected and inching past its competitors.

37,50 NOK, Vinmonopolet Sarpsborg. Nesten pĺ samme prisnivĺ som mange av de norske butikkřlene. Aroma og smak bestĺr av malt og noe grřnnsaker(?). Kort avslutning. Denne var ikke sĺ verst. Passer godt pĺ (sen)sommeren.

Gulbrun klar med hřyt hvitt skum som legger seg fort. Lukter gress og noe maltekstrakt. Lett. Kornete med lett bitterhet i avslutningen.

Butelka 330 ml. Kolor jasnozłoty. Piana w normie, biała, gęsta, drobna, ale stosunkowo szybko opada, myślałem że będzie dłużej. Raczej słabo nasycone CO2. Aromat i smak całkiem ok, dobre jak na powszechne piwo jasne. Pijalne, lekko goryczkowe, dobry balans. W sumie - lepsze niż się spodziewałem, daje radę.

A mi sí me gustó. Con estos calores de verano cae de maravilla. Una espuma cremosa, abundante y cero aroma y sabor neutro.
