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.

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).

A - Pure clear sunshine yellow with an bountiful inch of head.

S - It smell's on some hops and grain,but very hard to smell anything.

T - I didn't manage to feel anything else then very unpleasant bitterness.

M - High bitterness,but you could drink few,and then you don't want to drink it never again.

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.

Cruzcampo. Man that brings me back. I spent 1.5 years in Spain, and this was what was on tap (or in bottles if you wanted to look cool) in the bars. In the bigger cities like Sevilla, expect to pay 1 - 1.25€ for a glass. Small towns, I often paid less than 1€. Generally it's given to you in the same sized glass. But you can specify a larger serving if you wish (una jarra in the south; "un doble" in Valencia for example).

It's a fizzy yellow lager. What more do you need to say? Everyone and their mother drinks it. I remember walking home in near 40 degree (Celsius) temperatures, and hitting a small bar near my home for one or two of these at the end of the day. While it's not a great beer, it will always have a place in my heart from my time living in Spain. Resist the urge to be a snob and call it Cruzasco (if you speak Spanish, you'll get it).
