Typical Euro lager, nothing offensive, some sweet malts and slight bittering (grassy).

Sven1973 (252) - GERMANY - SEP 28, 2016
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 (6351) - 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 på samme prisnivå som mange av de norske butikkølene. Aroma og smak består av malt og noe grønnsaker(?). Kort avslutning. Denne var ikke så verst. Passer godt på (sen)sommeren.

Vighals (3162) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2016
Gulbrun klar med høyt hvitt skum som legger seg fort. Lukter gress og noe maltekstrakt. Lett. Kornete med lett bitterhet i avslutningen.

wojownik17 (271) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 22, 2016
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.

Lacho (72) - USA - JUL 10, 2016
A mi sí me gustó. Con estos calores de verano cae de maravilla. Una espuma cremosa, abundante y cero aroma y sabor neutro.

cracjo (9) - aranda de duero, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2016 does not count
no me parece una gran cerveza, un lager como muchas otras, aroma poco convincente, a malta y cereales no identificados, dulce al final.
