2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Spain. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is sharp, slightly spicy hops, some metal, sour apple and slightly chemical. Flavor is quite bitter, slightly spicy and hoppy. Above average carbonation. Not too bad.

Pours yellow with a lot of fast fading foamy off white head. Not quite cheesy aroma, but not impressive. A tad thin mouthfeel, rather dull taste, and not very drinkable. No hook at all. Thanks for bringing back Mark.

bottle. Poured pale straw coloured with an initially large white head that deminishes. The aroma is corn malt. Light grainy malt flavour. Light mouthfeel with average carbonation. Lingering light metallic finish. Meh.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Sulfur was my first whiff followed by a freshly mowed lawn with hints of a bread malt character. My favorite lager glass is not the best for swirling the beer to get more aroma release, it’s better suited to showcase the beauty of the lager. With a bit of time to percolate the sulfur has dissipated into a faint mineral character.
Appearance: Beautiful! I just love the sparkle of a lager! The continuous stream of bubbles replenishing the head and well just the fact that there’s head! Frothy, full, rich head! The color is very pale yellow/golden; the color of dry hay and crystal clear.
Taste/Palate: Alright, the nose did not tell me how delicate and smooth this beer would be. The malt is upfront with a full and rich feel with mild sweetness and a slight lemon zest. This is immediately followed by the very mild and balancing hop spice. The beer finishes with a refreshing but light acidity and retains the very pleasant malt profile which continues to revel layers of flavor.
Overall: A very nice lager of Spanish origin. I’m not super familiar with the ways of the Spanish beer makers, but I feel that this beer is made in the Czech style and does great honor to that style. It’s 85 degrees out right now and this was the perfect refresher.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle (in NZ). Skunky malt aroma. Not much of an improvement in flavour either, quite vegetal. The type of beer that gives beer a bad name.

In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours dog piss yellow with a huge fluffy white head that disappears fast. The aroma is just slightly like a boiled turnip, but the flavor is not all that bad. It is somewhat candy sweet and not perfume-like at all. My expectations were low for this, and I am a bit surprised at its non-suckness.

Pours a hazy pale yellow into the glass with a white head. Notes of malt and some yeast on the nose with a touch of citrus hops there. Easy to drink but its a bit bland really. Not a bad brew but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.
