1.53/5  rDev -45.6%

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.

1.58/5  rDev -43.8%

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.

Portugal

1.63/5  rDev -42%

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.

1.65/5  rDev -41.3%

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.

Massachusetts

1.7/5  rDev -39.5%

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.

1.78/5  rDev -36.7%

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.

1.8/5  rDev -35.9%

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.

1.83/5  rDev -34.9%

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.

1.95/5  rDev -30.6%

Pours gold with a large, fading white head.
Nose shows hay, vegetal notes, cardboard and faint spicy characters. Also some cereal-like aromas.
Flavours are very faint, just some sweet hay and cardboard. Not exactly unpleasant though.
Body is very watery.
