1.53/5 rDev -45.4%
Can from the LCBO- Pours sparkling gold, a frothy white cap. Nose is quite grainy, of vegetables, mostly asparagus. Wet paper. This is fucking rank. Tastes not as bad as the nose, but still pretty stale. Creamed corn, a full platter of wet paper. This tastes quite stale. The finish is quick, with a touch of grassy hops, but this is really not at all good.

Pours a golden color with a thin one-finger head into my pint glass.
Aroma is full of corn and sweet malt with a touch of bitterness in the nose.
Taste is very light and bitter upfront with the taste of corn and sweet malt. Harsh in the middle. Reminds me of Budweiser a bit.
Mouthfeel is full of lingering corn, malt and bitterness. Again, quite harsh.
Average or even less than so. Probably not a bad thing on a hot afternoon but I'd never buy it again.

Appearance: very clear with a pale golden color. The head is white, medium-sized with an impaired retention.
Aroma: not entirely unpleasant. Malty with some skunky notes.
Taste: some sweet malts to begin with and in the end slightly bitter. Corn notes.
Mouthfeel: kind of dry, high carbonation, low alcoholic strength and light body.
Finish: the bitterness changes to a disagreeable astringency.
Overall: mass-market adjuncty macro lager. Not inspiring. Disappointing aftertaste.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a light color, with a very thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is of adjuncts, grain, light malts and a faint touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out with a light malt and adjunct sweetness followed by mildly bready flavors of lager yeast and grain. The hops presence hardly detectable and there isn't much balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp but not very smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is clean.
D: Not very flavorful, light and goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, certainly not one of the better beers that I've had.

A very nice golden color. Little head that dissipates to to nearly nothing. No lace.
A combination of malt and adjuncts for the smell. No notable hop aroma.
Way too much carbonation--in fact, that may be all that is giving this beer its bite. This is a very dry beer. The swallow is slightly sour and the aftertaste shows some small hop flavors. The body is very thin.
A clear miss, although I'd say it is better than most of the American macros.

Past year I try this beer in its special edition of the forum of the cultures and its spectacular aluminum bottle with eclectic reasons; of entrance I am not very affection to the Catalan beers, but to be special edition this very well in general, low fermentation, little flavor, malt and hops excelling; floral and cereals are present in its taste; drink from the bottle, that keeps mantain it maintains frost; good for tapas and mexican food; 70% recommended.

A: Poured this one from a bottle to a pint glass. Very little head was produced and it quickly dissipated. Had a dull, yellowish color and a clear texture.
S: Exceptionally skunky odor, with some hints of citrus. Not particularly pleasant.
T: There were hints of lemon, malt and hops, but mainly it was a thin, watery brew. Had very little personality, but that's par for the course with the style.
M: Below average amount of carbonation and a slick finish.
D: This isn't a particularly well made beer. That being said, is there a decent version of the American macro lager out there? Probably not.

Pours a very clear yellow with surprisingly nice white head. Smells metallic and like some grain, but very faint overall. Flavour is about as close to nothing as beer could be, but a little off tinge to it. Ok carbonation. Drinkability is not good as I do not want another one. Oh well, at least I tried a beer from Spain.
