500ml can. ABV is 4.6%. Very pale straw yellow colour, big white head. Grass/hay aroma. Taste is slightly grassy, sweet malt, corny. Leafy, grassy aftertaste. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2009
500 mL can. Pale gold with a ring of head. Aroma of straw, mostly. Maybe some corn. Flavour seems off: hay and sweetness. Cardboard and a slight bitterness at the end. The guy who wrote the "Commercial Description" musta been drinking something else. Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
500ml can from the LCBO. Pours a beauitful straw colour with thick foamy head. Looks good from a distance, and is best kept that way. The aroma is corny, and it tastes......well, it tastes like the can it came in. I couldn’t finish it. First drain pour of 2009. There is a reason Spain is known for wine. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2009
POurs slightly hazy golden color with generous white head. Nose is disappointingly a little vegetal, with a suggestion of pears and an herbal quality. palate is somewhat creamy, crisp, and a pleasantly mild malt focus. Light overall, but that vegetal component comes through and is somewhat putrid. SmallOne (79) - SWEDEN - APR 24, 2009
Light yellow in color Aroma of some malt. The flavor has some corn and ricy notes. A clean taste with some bitter notes. What you ould expect form a pale lager.

500mL can from the LCBO. There was such a staggering amount of this stuff at the store I found it at, I was actually stunned. The LCBO must be one of Spain’s single biggest importers by now, I’m serious. Anyways this thing poured out a pale yellow with a large white fluff, looking highly carbonated. Upon first whiff I get a ton of TIN and metallic hops on top of some corn husks and adjuncty suspiciousness, as well as some wet-dog awfulness. The flavour is mercifully brief, an okay blend of corny malts and minor hoppy dryness, and salt? Weird. Quite fizzy and fleeting on the palate. The flavour is actually far superior to the weird and generally not pleasant aroma. Well I guess it’s somehow important that I got to try a Spanish beer, though I doubt this is the best the country has to offer. barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2009
500 ml can from the LCBO. pours pale yellow with a rocky white cap and excellent retention. aroma is of sweet grainy malts and floral hopping. thin rice malt body with more hops then i was expecting. a tin bitter finish. unremarkable lager that would do in most pale lager situations. spain tick!!

Pours a nice pale golden yellow colorwith a thin white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is very clean, some citrus and straw, but also some pale lager mainstays like corn. Flavor is the same, very clean, if a little on the bitter side. Not bad, not great, just a pale lager. Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2009
What’s this? A bright red 500 mL Can to get the bull all PO? It looked like a little matador’s cape rolled up there on the shelf when I picked it up. Visually this is one of the better I’ve seen with a frothy head that settles to a thin but tenacious foamy film that laces the sides of the glass beautifully over that pale clear straw body. In all of its other aspects, it echoes the lyrics of an old Trooper tune:
"You looked a whole lot better to me
From twenty feet away
You’re just a 3 dressed up as a 9
You’re only, wastin’ my time".
Aroma is corn, floral, and earth with a mustiness about it. flavor is predominently corn and steamed rice and an astringent corn husk aftertaste; not that pleasant. No olés for this wimpy thing. lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2009
Pours gold with white head. Smell is yeasty and malty. Taste is yeasty, sweet and malty with a very light bitterness. Mostly a sweet and yeasty pale lager, and not as crisp and dry as I like. Thin body and prickly carbonation. Drinkable, but there are pale lagers I like quite a bit better.
