2.03/5  rDev -38.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

7.2% confirmed. Can acquired in Ibiza, Spain. Reviewed from notes taken April 2011. Can was served into a Guinness pint glass.

A: Pours a four finger creamy head of fair thickness and decent retention. Colour is a copper-yellow. Good head for the ABV.

Sm: Very malty, but light in strength overall.

T: A malty body with hints of barley hither and thither. Poorly built but surprisingly fairly balanced for a crappy Spanish macrolager. A bit of cream on the open is the most pleasant aspect of the beer, but the malt doesn't carry through the refreshing feel established by the cream, which is a disappointment. Way too malty. It doesn't taste like alcohol, which is impressive considering the lack of flavour.

Mf: Smooth and light. Warm from the alcohol, an unpleasant effect in the throat. If you were on the fringe of vomiting, a sip of this would surely tip you into the red zone.

Dr: Extremely cheap and high ABV, but low quality. Probably the best beer in Ibiza hands-down for getting knackered, but it's far from great. That said, of all the beers I remember having in Ibiza, this one sticks out for its (relative) drinkability. Just don't get it in the canned version; stick to the bottles.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pale brass with loose white froth that flees fast but rims.
Faint caramel popcorn with a bit of earthy, spice hops.
Thick honey on country loaf with a big grassy hit.
Papery finish and astringent linger. Medium, chewy, some burn.

Maize and rice in the ingredients; only 18% barley, which ain’t good. It does a passable job of throwing the shapes of a true marzen. But it is a bit cheap and flimsy on the linger – crunchy autumn leaves come to mind. There are far worse double malts.

Bought a bottle of this at a Spanish restaurant in the Metropolitan building of the Ikebukuro station in Tokyo. I bought it for the simple fact that it was the darkest and most expensive beer they had bottles of. It was my first Spanish beer, so I had no idea what to expect. However, I was blown away by how tasty this brew was. It is a dark brew with a nice white head that retains its shape throughout its life. The smell overwhelmed me in a good way as I poured it into the glass. Very spicy and herbal in a way that obviously suits Spanish cuisine. The mouthfeel was a bit weak considering the appearance and the scent of the brew. However, I was overall pleased with this random selection. I get the impression that many other Spanish beers are not in this fashion, and looking at how others ranked this beer, I feel I am out of the popular consensus. Regardless, I loved this brew and I would recommend it if you see it around.

3.18/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

It has a nice centimeter of foamy head on top of a clear, medium-dark amber beer.

The aroma is quite strong and malty, with a hint of caramel in the background.

The flavour is slightly sweet. The alcohol comes through quite noticeably, and it has a kind of breakfast cereal aftertaste.

Overall, this is an okay offering if you're looking for a strong beer. I wouldn't seek it out back home though... It's probably pretty expensive.

2.78/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

33cl can poured into a stein

beer pours a two finger head, quickly dissipating to half a finger with no lacing. beer is a nice light amber/almost orange color. looks pretty nice

aromas of some light malts, alcohol, corn (though made with rice), and perhaps some hops

quite sweet, definite alcohol presence, a bit stronger hop presence than in the aroma, which gives it a lemony characteristic, but perhaps more like lemon dish soap than a real lemon.

overall, a nice change and better than most Spanish attempts, but fairly harsh overall. despite the 7.2%, it could hardly be considered an economical drunk, as it commands a premium price.

finally, a semi-comical semantic note: the can says "cerveza extra," which in context means "premium beer," but the english translation is simply "extra beer." gotta love that engrish.

Poured from a 25 cl bottle into a goblet.

A - Attractive beer. It is a deep golden color edging to copper or orange and it's very clear. The head is thick and fluffy at first, fading to a thin layer with nice lacing. Tiny bubbles.

S - The aromatics change for the better as the beer breathes and warms. Straight from the fridge it smells harsh and skunky like a mass-market "pilsner" lager you'd find anywhere in the world. Give it some time and its German heritage shows through. The skunkiness disappears, replaced by muted noble hops. The dominate aroma is malt--nutty, grainy, Munich malt. There is even some sweet alcohol presence in the nose.

T - The taste is more along the lines of the original aroma, unfortunately. Moderate hops bitterness that seems a little harsh and skunky. This fades in mid-palate and some malt shows through, but it is not as round and satisfying as good German examples. The bitterness returns in the end with a lemon twang, offset by a hit of alcohol.

M - Thin body, little noticeable carbonation, dry finish. A bit of alcohol bite.

O - This beer is drinkable, inexpensive, readily available and has a respectable alcohol content. Although not a great beer, it has become my standard to keep on hand in Spain because it is worlds better than other Spanish beers I’ve had. I'll keep looking, but so far this is the best local brew I've found.
