3.05/5 rDev +8.5%
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle stamped 06/11-L080214. Sampled on September 24, 2012.
It pours straw yellow with the slightest of chill haze and a thin white head that lingers to the end.
The aroma is grainy and malty with a sort of butterscotch element to it. No immediate hop character.
The body is light and smooth.
The taste begins malty and has this low to moderate bitterness on the backside but it leaves an odd aftertaste. Really nothing special here.

A: Pours a very pale straw. Good carbonation. Moderate white head that dissipates rapidly. Moderate to minimal retention.
S: Hop extract. Fruity sweetness. Cooked veggies/mild skunkiness.
T: Cereal sweetness that is borderline cloying. Adjuncts, extract and some serious processing. Bit of a metallic note. Not nearly bitter enough on the finish.
M: Pretty spot on. Good carbonation. Wish this sucker finished dryer.
O: About to the level of many of the other mass produced Euro Lagers. Unfortunately, it's a bit more expensive. Would probably be better in Barcelona, watching some poor bastard getting gored during the Bull Run.

Budweiser only with a decent head. Very clear, pale straw color. Extremely clarified. Looks like piss in a glass. But I'm giving it a two because it's got a nice head. Bright white, foamy, good retention and a crusty lace as it dies.
Smells like an American macro. Corn, grainy esters, facsimile of some sort of Pilsner malt.
Vague fruitiness with some floral notes. Not awful, just not good. Same grainy flavor as the smell.
Pretty smooth for piss in a glass. Has some sweetness to it, a grainy bite. Sort of a hoppy bite in the finish, though even that's masked by all the adjunct crap added.
I feel for the Spanish. This would be a good beer if you were stranded in the desert, otherwise, don't bother.

Poured from bottle into a standard beer glass.
Appearance: Clear Yellowish color with heavy carbonation. Head was about two fingers and did not last long, except for a very thin layer on top that lasted almost the whole beer.
Smell: Almost nothing in the way of smell. Maybe some cereal type grains but faint.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Lighter bodied and smooth. Some sweet and bitter qualities about this beer. But it was a bit watered down, which I would expect from these types of beers. It had a dry and bitter after taste that I have noticed is common in a lot of the American Adjunct Lagers made in Spanish and Latino countries.
Overall: Not a horrible beer. I can honestly say I enjoyed it. Good beer for a hot summer day, and I drank the whole six pack. Not my immediate choice, but would have again.

I had this beer on tap in the early and late 2000's and in that time this beer was not very spectacular. My brother in law was in Spain a week ago and he bought a few beers for me. Thanks Gerard!
Poured this beer in one of my Dutch beerglasses. Nice golden pour with a big fluffy head and some nice carbonation. The start is good. Lacing, the head sticks in the glass.
Smell is a bit grassy. Taste is a bit too watery for me. No crispyness in this beer. It is a good lager but not more than that. No real bitterness or sweetness in this beer...
