I guess im not sure why this one has such low reviews, I thought it to be a far superior beer to the average euro lager. it pours beautiful and elegant into a tulip, with crystal clear golden hues and about an inch of white head that doesn't recede one bit. nice lacing left behind, and lazy carbonation haphazardly rising to the surface. the nose is a little dusty, some Czech or german pilsener malts for sure, and just a very common lager yeast. the taste is indeed bready akin to the pilsener style, but it has a lot less hops, and is instead balanced by a dryer malt complexion that finishes impossibly clean. it may get a little filling over time, but a few of these to me is a pretty solid session. excellent carbonation and a sturdy body for its color. I have no problem with this beer at all, a nice surprise from a champagne bar in Chicago.

A: Pours a pale straw color with a fizzy ead that fades quickly.

S: Aroma of malt sweetness, grassy and a musty.

T: Taste is of malt sweetness and some grain. No real bitterness and a slick finish.

F: Light body and smooth.

O: Lower rung on the Euro Lager ladder. Too sweet to enjoy.

Pours a straw yellow, with a nice couple of fingers of white carbonation. Lace is thin and wispy.

Nose is adjunct grains. I get the requisite cream corn and rice notes. Unremarkable and pedestrian.

Taste is sweet and malty, with accents of cream corn and rice. Hops are there, but oh-so-lightly resigned to the background. The Bud Lite of Spain? Seems like it. Nothing more to see here.

On tap at la Bocqueria in NYC

A - Pale yellow water, little bit of fiz and a little bit of lacing

S - a little skunky but mainly metallic

T - Butter sweet and Metallic nothing else to it

M - Could use a bit more carbonation to make it at least refreshing, kind of leaves too much sweetness in the mouth

O - It's what's in tapas bars so you have little other choice, but honestly, it's not that good
