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.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 6, 2008
Another typical lager from Spain. Quite a bitter one, but not much complexity and almost no hops aroma nor flavour. A bit too heavy.

trapez (1514) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle 0.33 l. Bought in Spain. Golden yellow colour with small white head. More bitter, more malt than usual for Spanish beers.

Pinball (10799) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2008
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.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2008
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)

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 14, 2008
courtesy of Antonio Rey Ruiz - clear and bright golden colour under a foamy and fast collapsing white foam; corny and slightly herbal nose; moderate malt body with a light and slightly harsh bitterness; quite dry herbal finish - acceptable

Bottled. Pale yellowish golden colour with mediumsized white creamy/fluffy head. Aroma is grassy, grainy and hayish with some mild rubbery notes. Flavour is the same with a harsh bitterness coming in the finish. Aftertaste is grainy and hayish.
