CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 1, 2011
This is perhaps one of the tastier Spanish lagers. Takes on the taste of the can, so find in bottles. Slightly creamy, similar to Mahou in that respect, but retains some bitterness. Differentiating between various incredibly bad Spanish lagers is somewhat like picking your favorite shit in the bowl when you’re done, but this one does manage to stand... squat? above.

Mellonius (73) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAY 26, 2011
330 ml bottle in Rio, Brazil. Typical golden coloured lager with almost no head formation. Smells of malt and corn. Very watery mouthfeel, with a faint citrusy note. Reasonable hoppiness that doesn’t really take off but lingers on for quite a while. A refreshing beer that is not bad for hot days. Might be good company for japanese food.

AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours light golden, some bubbles and not much head. The nose is pale malt or rather hay. More hay on the taste, it has a little lemon afterwards but really the hay continues. The palate has medium body some texture to the end but could do with a cleaner finish. Overall, definitely better than your average beer but could do with more IBUs.

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
Bottle. Clear gold, average white head. Cereal grains and light skunk aroma and flavour. A decent euro lager.

crossovert (12486) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
11.2 oz brown bottle. Best before NOV 10. It pours a vibrant gold, the head is very adjunct lager-like and unpleasant to the eyes. It leaves some lacing. The smell is super skunky, funny because it is a brown bottle that is also within it’s due date. Do they purposely skunk it? The flavor is watery, there is some typical macro flavors here, a slight bit of hops, not much. Pretty bad. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-16-2010 22:21:06

omhper (24790) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2011
Draught at random bar in Madrid. Clear golden, small head. Fruity nolse. Mid sweet with light-medium body. Fruity with some resiny hops and growing spicy bitterness. A bit more hoppy than the average commercial lager.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
25 cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours a clear golden liquid with a small bubbly white head, that manages to last throughout the beer, leaving a little lacing. The aroma is herbal spicy, mainly hops, but with a hint of roasted malt. It tastes maltier, but with the same hoppy touch that you can smell. It is somehow sweet, and medium bitter. Averagedly carbonated and smooth, it also feels a little watery (not much). Kind of long bitter finish, with a nice aftertaste. Very refreshing. The presentation is very good (bottle ok, the crown cap rocks!). One of the best commercial spanish pale lagers.
