1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can courtesy of a friend who brought it from Spain (thanks Ivana!)
Poured a yellow body with a small thick white head that went away at a medium pace. A remarkably empty aroma... hard water and some dust. And the taste was just as empty as I feared after smelling it. Quite watery, light beer, some grain and dust...popcorn? hm. Almost no hop, what little there is hard to discern. A typical watery run of the mill lager that might as well be made in Hungary.

Another typical lager from Spain. Quite a bitter one, but not much complexity and almost no hops aroma nor flavour. A bit too heavy.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
aroma started out sour, but fast evolved into a spicy flavor, which was intersting. flavor might well be a tiny bit more full than san miguel extra, but it is not at all as good as the reborn san miguel xv. i get a little sweet notes somewhere that are nice. they go away and in comes a rather nice bitterness.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, thx to Tarjei. Pours a pale golden body with a minimal white head. Quite fruity on the nose, with yellow apples and a touch of tropical fruits. Some grains and a little lemon too. Malty flavor with yellow apples and some hoppy bitterness. Thin body. Slightly papery and cellar-like in the finish, due to it soon reacing BB-date? There’s also some fruits and a decent bitterness in the finish. A really boring beer, but not foul. (080720)
