I thought it was the same than the lager normal. Vry hoppy, and for my taste it is a PIlsener. A little tiring, but good one.

Soft pale Lager, much better from Tap than from bottle, but good. Available especially in the south of Spain

courtesy of Antonio Rey Ruiz - clear bright golden colour under a foamy white head;; solid grassy nose with a touch of dust and pepper; good malt body, some sweetness and slightly oily; moderate bitterness before a quite long herbal finish - great balance

Een mooie schuimkraag als je het uitschenkt. Een mooie heldere kleur. De geur is zoals het moet zijn, niets meer, niets minder. De smaak valt ook heel goed mee, meer smaak dan een doordeweekse pint. Een meevaller

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2004
Bottled. Fizzy golden larger, again with a generous fizzy white head. Lovely larger malts and hops in this one. Refreshing and crisp and certainly distinguishes itself again its little brother the premium larger.

Jotaigna (9) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2011 does not count
A clean tasting lager for those hot spanish afternoons. Little hop aroma and almost no malt. Pours light straw and clear with small bubbles and white head. Taste is delicately malty and subdued bitterness, even more than typical european mega brews. It has a light body, pleasant maltiness and when its cold its super refreshing. I was downing it with tapas in Granada at the time, and it went down well.
