Aroma: Sulfur was my first whiff followed by a freshly mowed lawn with hints of a bread malt character. My favorite lager glass is not the best for swirling the beer to get more aroma release, it’s better suited to showcase the beauty of the lager. With a bit of time to percolate the sulfur has dissipated into a faint mineral character.
Appearance: Beautiful! I just love the sparkle of a lager! The continuous stream of bubbles replenishing the head and well just the fact that there’s head! Frothy, full, rich head! The color is very pale yellow/golden; the color of dry hay and crystal clear.
Taste/Palate: Alright, the nose did not tell me how delicate and smooth this beer would be. The malt is upfront with a full and rich feel with mild sweetness and a slight lemon zest. This is immediately followed by the very mild and balancing hop spice. The beer finishes with a refreshing but light acidity and retains the very pleasant malt profile which continues to revel layers of flavor.
Overall: A very nice lager of Spanish origin. I’m not super familiar with the ways of the Spanish beer makers, but I feel that this beer is made in the Czech style and does great honor to that style. It’s 85 degrees out right now and this was the perfect refresher. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 13, 2006
Very nice, smells a little like Belgian Wheat beer, but it tastes different. Very foamy and a little like Vanilla IceCream. enidlesim (73) - - JUN 27, 2016
Favourite Spanish beer. Nose is rich and colourful: floral and beetroot earthy sourness. Pour is golden, light head, bubbly. Faint head lasts.
Taste is sweet and malty yet a refreshing summer lager with great hopping. It's like a Spanish "drink on the beach" lager but with depth and body.
A wonderful drink for the summer heat and perfect with handfuls of tapas.

Aroma is bready malts and a hint of spice. The flavor is bread, fruit/berries and a crisp and slightly finish. Jonb5 (550) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
330ml bottle, poured into Stone snifter. A: Pale golden, clear, quite lively looking, small head, low amount of lacing. S: Sugar beat, candy sugar. T: Really strong malt backbone, hints of rice kicked in at the finish. M: Slightly heavy body and thick texture, moderate carbonation. O: Maybe the hardcore hophead wouldn’t be a huge fan, but it’s the perfect beer for a hot day in Barcelona. ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a clear golden yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is a clean slight hop and fruit smell. The taste is similar to the smell with a little bit of bitterness on the back end. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2005
Very pale blond color. Very nice Saaz aroma, persistent, so rare in bottled beers… Very weak body structure, poor malt, nevertheless quite sweet and well hoppy. Average bitterness, but aromatic hops. A good surprise. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 A Mes rate: bottle in our appartment in Barca.
Very slightly buttery but a lovely blend of German and Czech character sorts things out well enough. Clean as a whistle pale gold with a thin white head. Wow, this is actually really tasty. Good slightly sweet malt, really nice delicate citric hops. Lovely balance of sweet and bitter. Very drinkable and without the sharp bite of the usual macro lagers. A pleasant surprise.
