12 oz clear bottle with a plastic label, the freshness of the brew would indicate that the date on the bottle was a processing date.

Appearance: Pasty big bubbled lace, perfect clarity with a bright yellow straw colour.

Smell: Clean cooked corn, mild solvent alcohol and a hint of grain.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Cooked corn all the way, not in a bad way though. Very grainy with a tight but reserved hop bitterness. The crispness goes a long way in the light body that it has. Finishes semi-dry with some lingering grain.

Notes: Is this the Spanish version of Miller High Life? Not a brew I’d go out of my way for but certainly a last resort beer if all else fails.

Pours gold with a quickly dissipating white head.
Nose shows vegetal and hay notes, along with faint spicy hops.
Similar flavours, mostly sweet hay with some faint cardboard and metallic notes.
Watery body.
Just another generic Euro lager really.

330ml bottle, poured into San Miguel glass. Golden colour, two finger head, clear. Smelled yeasty, notes of malt and citrus, not what I expected but nice. Fairly sweet taste, wheaty finish. Mouthfull was normal without too much carbonation. I thought this was decent for what it is, a crisp refreshing lager would go down well on a hot day in Spain.

On holiday in tenerife. Chilled 33cl bottle poured into a wine glass.

A- Golden body with lively beading, gives a solid creamy 2 finger head with an aggressive pour. This reduces quickly to leave some lace and a steady crown.

S- Smell is moderate bitter aroma hops dominating, not much malt note.

T- Gentle hint of malt with a solid hop bite in the finish which lingers well. Its crisp and clean.

M- Moderate carbonation and body.

D- A much better experience than the last time i tried Cruzcampo. Perhaps they get better stuff in Spain ;). Certainly a crisp clean lager with a good hop bite. For me, definitely one of the better Spanish mass produced golden lagers.

I had this beer at Milano in Madrid.

Cruzcampo pours a clear golden color, and is topped by a white head that eventually fades to a film leaving good lace. The aroma is pretty plain: lager sweetness, graininess, and grassy and peppery hops.

This beer starts out with the standard grainy/sweet lager taste, and then moves into a mildy bitter finish that has a small dose of grassy hops. This beer is light-bodied, moderately carbonated, and crisp.

Overall this was better than some of the other lagers we had, but it was still pretty generic.

Consumed aboard Delta flight from Madrid, Spain to JFK.

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

The smell was dominated by sweet adjunct grain and metal.

The taste consisted of a light corn sweetness, some doughy malts and a subtle floral hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the milkier side of the style.

Overall not something I would try again out of the can.

Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas of soda crackers and a bit of sweet pale malt. Quite light bodied, with fairly basic light malt and herbal, slightly minty, hop flavors. Clean tasting and finishing. No DMS or corn flavors that I could detect. Not exciting at all, but drinkable.

VEry drinkable, in SPain, abroad have not taste as good, it is refreshing, and pale yellow golden, very bubbling, good for a lager one, and not heavy but not annoying as other lagers. LEt us say that, with one, you can have a good time, I do not know if that can be a guarantee that with more you will like it the same.
