Can @ Corralejo.
Pours fine clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has light sugary sweetness, apple, mild sweetener. Medium prickly carbonation, thin and watery. Light metal and sweetener but also a fair note of malts. Okay for the style.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled at Madrid Barrajas Airport. Clear pale golden, rich firm head. Black currant-like wort aroma. Mid sweet with light body and clean mouthfeel. Sharp bitter finish. Quite unpleasant, although less so than the regular non NA San Miguel...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
25cl Bottle from a local supermarket. It pours a clear golden liquid with a surprising small-medium white head: it looks pretty good. It smells almost of nothing, a little hops and white vinegar. It tastes accordingly, with a little cardboard like in other n/a beers, but lighter; there are also shy notes of malt. It is not too watery and has a decent body, with average carbonation. It finishes dry and almost without bitterness. I appreciate the effort on this beer, as it really feels like a regular pale lager, but without taste. Much better than local competitors, except for Aigua de Moritz. Nice presentation (bottle and crown cap) for a n/a.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can 0,33 l. Pale golden, lazy lace, not very appetising looks. Malty, citric, lemonady and a bit sour flavor. A bit different than most non alcs. A bit flat. Has a bit of an aftertaste actually, bitterish.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Nice little 250ml bottle picked up during beer shopping at Centra Colosseum Park in Oslo. The best part of this one was, in fact, the bottle and partial the appearance of a loose, foamy white head with lacework on the glassware, and a straw-yellow coloured body. Smell of vegetables and hard water. Even more vapid vegetables in flavour. Some unidentified sour ending. Won’t buy it again. There are better n/a beers than this, even in Norway (hotel room, Oslo 13.10.2009).

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden with a small white head, aroma of cabbage water, metal and malt, flavor of grain, corn flakes, acid and vegetables. Body is quite watery.
Same bottle but with lemon, same appearance, aroma of artifical lemon and tea, flavor is the same, generally it tastes like a nice ice tea and not like a beer.
