Aroma: not very intense aromas here. Very light hints of malts and nothing more. Not even hints of the "double hops" promoted in its label. Disappointing. Appearance: excellent appearance. Amber color with huge creamy slightly off-white head made of medium-to-big sized bubbles. Perfectly clear. Medium Brussels’ lacing. Medium retention. Taste: low-to-medium sweetness, low-to-medium bitterness, no sourness. A mono-dimensional beer. Flavors of kilned malts, maybe burnt sugar and nothing else over here. The alcohol level and its warming effect is quite noticeable. Palate: medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, not very long semi-dry finish of kilned malts and some bitterness. More like a malt soda than like a beer. Overall: very good appearance and not very much else to discover here. Some very light aromas of malts, some flavors of kilned malts and that’s all. Boring. Mono-dimensional. Not very good but better than the average mass industrial brewery’s beer.

Bottle at home in Hackney / sourced from Ocado. Pours crystal clear gold with a creamy, white head. Simple cereal and pale grains in the aroma. Lightly sweet, with somewhat dry papery accents, crisp cereal grains, hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more crispy cereal, straw, slightly husky pale grains. Pretty basic macro lager. Not overly sweet, though, which is good.

Butelka 330 ml. Kolor jasnozłoty. Piana w normie, biała, gęsta, drobna, ale stosunkowo szybko opada, myślałem że będzie dłużej. Raczej słabo nasycone CO2. Aromat i smak całkiem ok, dobre jak na powszechne piwo jasne. Pijalne, lekko goryczkowe, dobry balans.

(Bottle, Hotel Vivanta by Taj, Gurgaon, 13 Nov 2016) Pale golden colour with brief, white head. Malty nose with cereal, bread and hay. Malty taste with notes of bread, cereal, hay, a touch of citrus, boiled vegetables and hardly any bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Boring and fairly tasteless.

Ambarina, espuma blanca de retención media. En nariz se notan maltas caramelo, lúpulo con ligeras notas herbales y cítricas, ligeramente especiada. En boca, de cuerpo medio y carbónico correcto, maltosa y un final ligeramente seco con sabores especiados. Una mahou clásica con notas especiadas y algo más cargadita de lúpulo metiendo variedades más aromáticas y con un toque a malta caramelo. Decente y bien balanceada.

On keg at Bar Victor in Cortes de Baza. A simple pale lager which is similar to other beers served in the area. I would stick to the stunning red wine made in the region, but if you need a beer, this one will do.

From Carrefour. In Alhambra Roja glass. Playing A Golden Wake. Not completely unpleasant but this doesnt seem a beer at all but more of a low alcohol cocktail, and becomes tiresome pretty quickly

Cuando la echas en el vaso tiene buena pinta, color ámbar, espuma espesa etc. Pero la pruebas y es un desastre. Nada de lúpulo, sabor a alcohol fuertísimo. Es como beber un whisky malo. Más que "doble de lúpulo", deberían llamarla "doble de mala".

Más de lo mismo pero vendiéndolo como algo muy diferente. La típica "tostadita" de las que hay bastantes ya en el mercado y que ésta no mejora.

The beer looks very good, beter than i had aspected. The color of the beer is a rather dark amber. The beer is quite clear. On top a nice layer of rough, but soft white foam is formed. The foam collapses, leaving a nice thin soft drape. The smell of the beer is nice. It is not that strong. I really smell some toasty aromas. I smell nice toasted malts and some roasted malts. It gives the beer a nice bitterness. I also smell some bitter os. I also smell some sweeter malt aromas and some fruity things. It is nice. The taste is nice to. Quite sweet malt flavours, with bitter toasted malt flavours and that bitter, slightly savoury nutty flavour. The balance is good, i like it. The body of the beer is also good. Medium body, smooth texture and rather light carbonation. The finish is quite long and contains a nice alcohol flavour. I like it.

The beer looks nice. the color of the brew is a nice rather dark golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear. On top, a nice crispy head is formed. It looks quite tasty. The foam collapses to leave a nice layer of foam. I like the smell. Already at the first sniff its clear were drinking a barrel aged beer. The oaky aromas are really clear. It reminds me a bit of Irish whiskey. Oakwood, some light iodine smell, some alcohol. I love it. There are also some sweet malt aromas, a fruity touch reminding me of banana and some more herbal hop aromas. It is in good balance. The oaky, whiskey like thing ting is even stronger in the taste. I taste oak, iodine, cherry, sweet banana. All in great balance. It is one of the best premium lagers I’ve ever had. I can’t believe it. I wish it was for sale in the Netherlands. The palate is good. Body is medium light and texture is a bit creamy even. It’s very smooth. Carbonation is medium low. The finish is nice, not to special. Great beer.

The beer looks perfect. It’s like a beer should look. The color of the beer is very dark brown, almost black. The deep dark color is amazing. The beer seems clear but the darkness makes it hard to tell. There are some particles floating around maybe. On top of the beer a nice soft greyish layer of foam is formed. As the foam collapses, a nice thick soft drape is left. The smell is nice. It’s not that strong though. I smell some delicious sweet malts, some raisins, bitter toasted malts and some hints of fresh bitter hops. The smell has a nice syrupy sweetness, also contains some caramel and nice spicy aromas. The taste is great to. I taste lovely flavours of gentle coffee, chocolate and caramel. The lovely sweet and bitter malts are enhanced by a tiny hoppy freshness. The beer is good and very tasty. I love the palate to. The body is medium, so is the carbonation. The beer feels very smooth, even creamy. It’s perfect together with the flavours and aromas. The finish is long and contains nice dark chocolate. Great beer.

The beer looks like a regular beer. The color is a nice dark golden yellow. The beer has perfect clarity. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, but a nice rather thick drape is left. The smell is nice but simple. It’s white mild. Just some light sweet malts and some bitter hops. The taste is the same. Nice seeet malts and bitter hops. I like it, it’s an easy drinkable beer. The body is light. The finish is rather short but nkce. Good one.

From El Corte Ingles Nervion. In Mahou Barrica glass Playing Blackwell Epiphanh. The oak notes are stronger than in the 3 months "original" version yet not oveewhelming still, and feels more alcoholic. I think I prefer the "original" one as its more drinkable.

En fin, no se puede esperar gran cosa de una producción de Mahou. En este caso, la barrica en vez de darle notas aromáticas o proporcionar algún regusto, amortigua de alguna manera los peores defectos de las otras cervezas populares de la compañía, como son el desagradable su desagradable sabor químico y el mal regusto a lúpulos rancios. Traslúcida tendiendo a transparente. Amarillo ámbar. Todas las carácteristicas de este producto y las de la Mahou 5 estrellas están compartidas. No hay mucho que añadir.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Best gluten free beer tested during summer holiday in Spain, though I’ve tested only the widely available ones. Tasted same as a typical eurolager which in this case was an advantage.

To have a gluten free McDonald’s burger with an alcohol free beer is priceless :) for that beer to be drinkable is even better. I’ve had worse

Can. A stupid attempt to brew -or maybe sell- a propper beer, being a nonsense right from it’s slogan -’double hop’ hehe. Well, it has no aroma, tough it looks good, an appealing deep Golden colour and a good white head. What comes next is the archetypal local drunk beberage, a boozy, sweet and somehow metallic beer. Avoid.

330ml bottle @any bar. 28-08-2016.
BBD: fresh.
In short: boozy industrial lager.
A stronger version of their flagship pale lager, designed for marketing purposes, cause Mahou was lacking a boozy lager to compete with Voll-Damm, Amstel Oro... Almost a malt liquor, sweet, adjuncts, "double hops"??. Very poor.
