1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 ml can from supermarket on Easter Island. Official Real Madrid sponsor design. Pours a clear bright gold color with a big white airy head that diminishes quickly and recedes into a small lacing. Aroma is weak and diluted but clearly showing more bready malts than any hops. Pretty neutral with notes of white bread, grains and touches of biscuit. The hop presence is almost imperceptible with tiny grassy/herbal hints. Taste is neutral, devoid of any alpha acids, bready and with soft metallic hints. After the undefined and very mild grainy sweetness, in the aftertaste you have a glimpse of a herbal note. Almost as tasteless as a Corona but with a bit more of malt. Not as highly carbonated as other macrobrewed Pale Lagers, it is just as light bodied. Weak and watery. I’ve had worse, much worse, but there is nothing here to justify the cheap $. It’s not even very refreshing. It’s just an odorless, tasteless, neutral and boring Pale Lager, not offensive but without any redeeming qualities.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Can) Clear pale gold with tiniest white head. Unpleasant aroma of corn and vegetables. Light bodied and fizzy like soda. Unpleasant taste - corn and artificial metallic bitterness. Would not choose again, but would not refuse it if it was the only beer available.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Industrially produced lager with a slightly pronounced hoppy bitterness. Nothing special about this beer. It is best when drunk ice cold, as tastes hardly its extract like malt side and its equally boring shortage of hops.

330ml. 4 pack, In a jug . Hola amigo hermano ...I don’t eat a lot of Spanish food but this would obviously go well with tapas and an economy going down the crapper . Soft body , sweet, but not relentless like san miguel or some shit . notes of chewy hay , grass, metalic pennies , toffee ,honey .a nice dry bitterness . My inner Lager-lout self thinks this is more than decent .
