Had on tap in Granada Spain at one of the several tapas bars in that city. The beer pours crystal clear is a nice straw yellow in color. The beer has columns of bubbles streaming up towards a thick white head that dissipates slowly leaving some nice lacing.

The smell is slightly stale and mildly skunky. Perhaps an old slightly oxidized keg or one that the locals stay away from. Soft lemons make their way into the air after the head finally fades to nothing.

Wet dog. I've never had a beer that tastes like wet dog but this one sure does. It has some beer like characteristics like light malted barley and a crisp lemony flavor but they are way in the background. The good news is that the taste eventually subsides but the first few sips are a real chore.

Mouthfeel is nice and crisp with a good bite of carbonation and hop bitterness. A nice bit of redemption there that pulls this beer back from the flames. Glacial finishes strong after a shifty start.

Enjoyed on tap in Madrid, Spain after a long day touring the Museo de Prado.

Poured a light to medium straw hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light malt, some adjunct sweetness and a flowery hop.

The taste was basic, consisting of a light grainy malt, slight corn sweetness and a relatively solid hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the cleaner side of the style.

Overall a tasty and very easy to drink lager. Advertised at a serving temperature of 0 to 2 degrees Celsius.
