330 ml can bought at 759 Store in Lung Sum Avenue, Sheung Shui.
Piss golden yellow colour; Razor thin head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Small sticky lacing with active carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with strong corn, bread, faint lemon and smelly light grass; Near zero sweet taste of malt, with light wet card board, strong corn and toasted grains, bread, light lemon and muted grass; Light body, thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is corn-loaded macro Pale, with unusual malty thickness, very dry and bready. Light wet cardboard managed to ruin the pleasure; Hoppiness is lemon hint and smelly grass nose, low citrus and grass taste, and noatable muted bitterness for semi finish; Very dry after taste, easy to mouth.
Comments: Another cheapo macro, this time from Spain. Adjuncted as it may, it does show some good dryness and malty characters that most macros wouldn’t bother. Quite a spunky one for me, if only without the light cardboard.
