1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
05/12 On tap in some inn near Atletico Madrid stadium. Poured golden body with medium sized froth head. Grainy, corny and grass hop aroma. Flavor was sweet, corny with inferior hops. Medium bodied with long finish that showed some corn acidity. This is supposed to be their premium over cinco estrellas, well, both are pieces of crap.

Had that one a million times in Madrid on tap and in bottle. Interesting one as it still is a pissy lager but gives me a tender sweetness with the amount of carbo which I like. Therefore I enjoyed it every time accompanied by a little snack. Definitely not rocket science but not crap beer at all.

On tap & bottle at many places, over the years. Mainstream lager. At least the advice you in the label: "corn" as ingredient. Nothing more to say about this one.

Out of the two Mahou beers I’ve tried I prefer this. It’s less heavy and sickly than the Cinco Estrellas. It is still very corny, but as it warms up in the sun it still stays quaffable.

La cerveza Mahou de barril es toda institución en Madrid, donde la sirven con una cremosa espuma sin gas. Eso no significa que sea una buena cerveza. Es quizás un refresco.

Very pale in colour but at least keeps its head nicely. This is fine for what it is, quite crisp and clean with some hop character, making a perfectly drinkable pale lager.

25 cl. bottle. Grass, floral aroma with a bit of biscuit. Crystal clear pale straw. Mild grassiness with a bit of balancing hop. Thin-medium body. Okay. Not as much flavor as the Cinco Estrellas

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale golden look with average white head. Grainy and light malty aroma. Light sweetness and very light bitterness on the taste. Typical lager. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation, short finish. Whatever.

On tap in Madrid. Pale golden with a white head. Light malty aroma with a hint of cooked vegetables. Sweet and grainy with a lightly sour and surprinsingly bitter finish. Drinkable beer on a hot day. (2012-08-16)
