They sell it as a select beer but is a completely average beer. A bit better than the typical spanish macro junk but nothing exceptional. Simply passable

Probably one of the best beers you can find in Spain. There are only half a dozen Iberian beers that really say something and this is one of them. Unfortunately, I don't think that you can find this outside of Spain to easily. It's a really decent beer and only costs about a $1.50 a bottle.

330 ml. bottle Deep amber colour, decent head, so it dissapears soon, leaves a lace. Smell of grass, grain, some bread or maybe biscuit. Medium body but I found it somewhat watery, good carbanation. Taste is sweet, some caramel and citrus, grassy. Not too bad for a San Miguel, but nothing really special.

33cl can poured into a pint glass

a: pours a light copper color with a bubbly one finger head which slowly dissipates, leaving decent lacing. a good start.

s: some bready malts and some hops bitterness, but not a lot going on.

t: starts with the bready malts, which are nice, but where I would expect a crisp hops bitterness, there is none, and it falls flat. the alcohol is also somewhat present, especially as it warms. i think it would have benefited from a higher carbonation level as well.

o: it ends up overly sweet, malts, and boozy, with nothing to balance the beer in the way of hops or cut the sweetness with carbonation.

Brewed with 3 different species of hops and 3 kinds of malt.

Thr body features a clear, reddish-brown colour and it smells discreetly roasty.

Considering the 6,2 percent of alcohol it's quite fresh and drinkable, but also a little bit dull.

The hops are well balanced and don't seem as artificial as in many other spanish brews.

Not overwhelming, but definitely worth a try.

Bronze. Mouth when you feel a light syrup not really pleasant because too fast disgusting. It seems that it is a combination of three hops and a grape aged in cellars. Faced with such a conclusion, which is undergoing a presence in more alcohol too strong to preserve the balance of the beer, it is reasonable to ask whether such a hack was required. Conclusion: do not drink San Miguel, no matter its name, when you go to Spain.
