2.26/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 1.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

A: The color is clear golden. The light, airy white head is medium tall. There are lots of bubbles. Almost no lacing.

S: Adjunct malt; corn but also some citric ntoes. Some bitter hops in the back, but overall rather mild smell.

T: Corny but the bitter hops balances a bit. Bready, sweet and grainy. Citric. A bit harsh.

M: Aftertaste is rather long, but the dominating bitterness is raw and unbalanced. Body is on the lighter side while the carbonation is rich.

O: Well, not as quenable as one could think. Rather raw bitterness with thin body makes this uneven and not very pleasant.

not sure why this beer is listed as retired. bought a can today from supermarket, San Miguel 1516, 4.2%, brewed out of C/ Urgell 240, 08036, Barcelona, Spain.

a: pours a golden yellow, one-finger head which dissipates to a quarter inch head that sits.

s: a light maltiness, a touch of hops. clean.

t: very light, very clean: some nice malts, and the smallest bit of hop flavor. high carbonation.

o: a bit cleaner than San Miguel/Mahou/etc. standard offerings, with no offensive corn taste, but still, somewhat of a why bother attitude.

Lather very salt and nose with a very light malt, which still manages to make a good place. Notwithstanding the artificial foam, it is recognized that the flavors are pleasant smell. This is not the rest of the beer. While the first sip is aqueous, the entry in the mouth, she accompanied the salty flavor but loses strength and fortunately after a few minutes decarbonation. This is also the flavor that is unpleasant aftertaste and bitterness now, probably artificial and disgusting. It seems she is brewed using traditional methods.

Here's a notably clear and yellow beer with a thin white head. The beer has above average carbonation, which is evident from the number of bubbles and the slightly carbonic taste. This is a simple euro-lager beer, with a touch of malt and a passing hop flavor in the hind-taste. It's light and a little crisp, with a bit more sweetness than similar beers. Still, there's nothing extraordinary here.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Yellow color, almost golden. Clean and clear, average head.
At the smell a malty tone, so and so. Some heavyness.
The taste is full malty too, and it is also quite heavy, too.
Malty aftertaste, and finally some hionts of hop.
Honest and drinkable, no more.
