0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
33cl can, thank god it wasn’t larger. Looks almost ok for a pale lager, a bit too light in color, and the nice head disappeared before I had a chance to lift the glass. Still, I have never seen a beer look so close to urine, so it’ll get a point for matching the appearance to the taste. And that’s all there is to the taste. Aroma? nope. Surprisingly the palate isn’t that bad, a bit too sweet, but if anything else in the beer matched the palate it would be better.
This beer is probably better on a hot day on the beach in spain than in the winter here in Norway though, so maybe I’m just doing it all wrong :)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 25 cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours a pale golden liquid with small-medium white head (lasting somehow throughout the beer). The aroma is light; basically hopped, herbal, citric, a little artificial maybe, but good. A hint of malt also. It tastes accordingly, but maltier. It is averagedly carbonated, smooth and with a nice, medium bitter, malty aftertaste. I used to be critical with this one, but found that not only it is decent, but also good if you pour it correctly. It is a light pale lager, but nice to go with "tapas". The presentation (bottle and crowncap) is awful, though.

Sold in the stores of El Corte Ingles, where You can also get Mahou clasica. Can states clearly the beer is made by mahou. also "With the guarentee of mahou" whatever that means. Either this is a beer of its own, or it should be an alias of mahou clasica.
Pale yellow, small fluffy white head.
aroma:sweet, faint bitter hops, faint alc bitterness.
flavor: sweet, caramelly, faint bitterness, very faint metallic note.
I compared head to head, el corte ingles and mahou clasica. bought from the sae shelf in the same store, and tasted at the same teperature at the same time in two different glasses. The two beers are much the same. The el corte ingles beer is a little lighter yellow, it is a bit more bitter from alc,both in flavor and aroma. As the two cans were brewed on different dates, this could be the reason. The two cans 33cl are physically not the same as if they were fro two different botteling plants. The opener is square on the clasica, while it is round on the el corte. The imprint on the top is not the same too. the bottom part of the cans is different.
For a discount lager, sort of a little vienna like, this one is fine-fine.

nice, surprisingly (for that kind of beer) strong aroma. a bit citrussy, which turns into cereral/spices which is a dissapointment. clear yellow, white head that starts real nice and soft, but soon goes away. sweet flavor, girlie beer. faint but not totally missing bitter aftertaste. sort of okay, but nothing much to write home about.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle in Spain 2 years ago.
Straw-coloured with a short-lived head.
The smell is a bit bland, so is the taste. Just a typical Mediterranean pils.
