I must admit, I had good feelings toward this beer after having it on draft in a London pub. Add in that I'm going to Spain in a week and I thought I'd check it out again.

This is not good beer. Sure, compared to a BMC it's spectacular. But for the price of an import 6-pack, you could easily pick up an awesome craft beer. I'll still finish off the 6-pack - it's beer, of course I'll drink it. But I won't enjoy it!

Poured into a Trumer Pilsner glass (Stange?). Beautiful color and a head that won't quit. Seriously, I gave up waiting for it to go down, and eventually just dug in. Lacing was impressive - it left a ring around the glass after every sip, with about 7 levels of lacing by the end. But...then I look into and find out they use some chemical to increase head retention. Major fail. Cheaters.

The body is a little thicker than the typical American lager, and tastes a bit sweet like honey and malt and something grainy I can't put my finger on. Definitely unique. Taste isn't completely terrible, just too sweet, and has virtually no bitterness or hop presence at all, either in the aroma or taste.

Of course it's drinkable. It's a euro lager. I could slam an entire 6-pack, except that the sweetness would start to get cloying after the first bottle or two.

On the plus side, the labels come off super-easy for using in my own homebrew.

Won't be buying again. Time to find out if there are any decent breweries in Madrid...

On tap at the 9th door in Lodo, this was the only draft offering and I'd already ticked the bottles they had. Bright yellow, fizzy looking lager. Aroma was nothing to write home, typical lager grains and a hint of mineral. The flavor was not half bad, pretty standard fizzy lager, crisp refreshing, easy to drink, not sure why this gets such low reviews.

Serving type: on-tap

500ml can. Lager glass. Sugar & cabbage as tap is removed. Bright straw color, filtered appearance. White forth creates a correct crown even though not very well attached. Sulfur, moldy & cardboard odors. Crispy & grainy upfront. Light to medium body. Medium moderate to high carbonation. Watery texture. Fizzy & spicy palate. Metalic hues, grainy malt flavor linger into a slight bitter finish touched by sweetish artificial notes.

Serving type: can
