look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance: very clear with a pale gold color. Very low white head with no retention whatsoever (there wasn’t a head to begin with!).
Aroma: unpleasant aroma.
Taste: no barley malt and no hops. Terrible taste of cooked vegetables.
Mouthfeel: dry, gassy, low alcoholic strength.
Finish: astringent and (happily) short. Bad aftertaste.

Overall: awful macro lager. Worst Spanish beer I’ve ever tasted.

Received from a friend who just returned from Spain. Poured out of a 330 ml bottle into a pilsner glass.

A - Clear yellow. Lots of carbonation with a big white head that dissipates quickly.

S - Not much going on. Some faint grainy malts.

T - Bitter in a bad way, very watery and a bit acidic.

M - Very light with loads of carbonation.

O - No thank you.

okkkie! My mom brought me a sample of this "beer".

Well first a very pale blonde that is very carbonated with at first a good head that slowly dissapeared only to leave a former image of herself.

Smell is hoppy, with a shy shy shy note of skunk in the background.
A cereal flavour is also present that reminds me more of spices than anything else.

taste is just not there, wet board is present sign of an infection. Watery, I dont detect any hops or malt. A very bready taste is also present and the beer has a hit when drnking it meaning, it doesnt go down smoothly!

Nope. Not so good.

Clear golden yellow, short lived head that dissapates to a ring. No lace.

Taste is musty old grass, lots of corn. The beer has an underlying sweetness and the bite of cheap malt liquor. Poorly made and not particularly appetizing.

Give it a pass.

Served in business class on the Delta Flight from Moscow to New York. I'd never heard of it, so took a shot. Bad move.

Copmes in a red and white can with a Robin Hood type figure holding up a beer mug. The ingredients list includes "cereals." Best before 12/5/04, I inflicted this upon myself on 6/11/04.

OK, it doesn't look horrible. Clear gold sits under a one finger white head with decent retention and good lacing (in my plastic airline cup). Things go downhill fast from there. The nose is full of sweet malt with a strong sense of rice and adjunct. The mouth is typically very prickly and light. Taste? Crash and burn. There is a strong rice impression combined with harsh metallic hops - or maybe that's just harsh metal. Very little redeeming quality here, as there's no malt and the hops taste like chewing the can. I switched to wine.

A 330ml bottle with a BB date of March 2011. Picked up cheap at my local off-licence.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. Pale straw yellow with medium carbonation. A decent head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two. The liquid contains plenty of floating fragments - I tend to view haziness as the mark of a good beer but in this case it just looks unappetising. Aroma is faint; a hint of light grainy malt, a whiff of solvent and a sweet artificial note that is reminiscent of apples.

Taste is weak and watery. The faintest hint of pale malt, accompanied by a distintive solvent note and a slight artificial sweetness. The flavour has a acrid acidic quality that is unpleasant. Mouthfeel is prickly and dry. Leaves a bad aftertaste.

Not a very nice beer. I don't know if this is always like this or if it's just old. With a weak and nasty flavour, I simply cannot recommend this to anyone.

Had this on-tap while on vacation in Sevilla and took notes. Pale yellow lager apperance with a very small head that dissipated quickly; very little lacing. Medium carbonation. The smell is very faint, a few hints of corn and grains but that's about it. Taste is not very impressive: bitter, a bit watery and acidic with a very dry mouthfeel.

Not the most pleasant beer around but this is what's offered in nearly every bar in Sevilla and after a while, you start ti get used to its unpleasant taste (for better of for worse).

The beer is clear pale straw colored, with a white head leaving little lacing.

The smell is faintl, mainly boiled corn and vegatables.

The taste is typical wet sweet corn flakes, some lemon nuances and a faint metallic bitterness.

Medium carbonation, somewhat fizzy, a bit dry at the end.

Tastes like any low-budget pale euro lager.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: The pour is golden with a medium large white and a bit uneven head.

S: Malt with a cornyness to it. A bit metallic and chemical with some citric notes and faint bitter hops.

T: Sweet malt, with faint corn in it. Some bitter hops and some citric notes.

M: The aftertaste is short, very short with some sweetness and faint bitterness. The body is medium to thin and the carbonation is rich.

D: Goes down smoothly. Great on the beach, a sunny day. Uncomplicated.
I'm not sure this is a German Pilsener - in part it's more like an American Adjunct Lager (a pretty nice one, for being an Adjunct lager). For being an German Pilsener it's very bleak.
