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.

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.

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.

San Miguel tries to give some strength to his beer and , even better than normal beer, fails to reach make a decent beer

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

Wonderful roasted chocolatey malts with depth. Followed by herbal hops and an alcohol ester taste. Great full mouthfeel.

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.
