erickok (4467) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 Pretty heavy again on the carbonation. Provides for a crisp and a bit astringent aroma, with a thin malty base. Even drier than the normal San Miguel, especially in the end. Light herbal, too. Not too bad actually. (33cl bottle in a Valencian bar)

Kosmokrator (668) - ITALY - MAY 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 Classico color oro con una fine schiuma bianca. Aroma davvero debole e gusto banale ma non orribile, con un tocco dolciastro e qualche traccia di luppolo; al palato è discretamente bilanciata. Vien buona giusto per una grigliata.

vipinvelp (3160) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2012
A good beer for Spain. Crisp and somewhat tintling by the carbon gas. Nice darker yellow color and foam head. Tasted great with the Spanish sausages served. Perfect for Spain.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Pours golden blonde. Light malt flavor with hints of grass and bread. There is a nice refreshing bite but there’s not much to it.

mzaar (2298) - 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 (2932) - 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.

Fin (8704) - 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
