mzaar (2710) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2011
Smak rund och len, något vattnig, med inslag av hö och ljust rostbröd - innan det rostas. Doftar trä och örter, dock väldigt svagt. En väldigt ordinär lager.

teddybeer (3312) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 1, 2011
Can 33cl. Blonde beer with white head medium persistent. Hoppy aroma. Bitter taste and average body. Lively carbonation and bitter final. The name of 1516 of this beer wants to tell us that has been brewed according Reinheitsgebot Law, but unfortunately this beer is not the same as other German beer according this Law.

Golden color, medium to low head. Not much aroma. Doesn’t taste much, some bitterness maybe. Drinkable when the weather’s hot.

Fin (9362) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2011
Can from Eroski Supermarket, Logrono, La Rioja, Northern Spain 02.07.11 consumed outside Frank at Camping Barenas, nr Santo de la Calzederas, La Rioja, Spain 02.07.11 Pours gold with a white head, metallic edge noted straight away, maltiness also picked up. Bit dry at the end with a light bitterness. This just about did the job but that is one of the few positives that I could take from this beer. A5 A4 T6 P2 Ov11 2.8

Un mal ejemplo en España de lo que debería ser una cerveza pura al estilo alemán. La “hermana mayor” de la San Miguel… esta cerveza, bajo mi opinión, se queda por el camino. La intención es buena pero el resultado nefasto.

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2010
Spain’s attempt at brewing nasty pale lagers in the German purity law. 33cl bottle in Bilbao, Spain. golden pour, white head. aroma, regular hoppy, pale malts nose with some lingering grains. flavors, citrus, light lager like palate, medium bitterness, grainy, dry and bubbly finish. Watery mouthfeel with a touch of hops. Not horrible but list within a sea of other mediocre Euro pale lagers
