My father-in-law brought this back form a recent trip to spain. thanks Mike!

Pours crystal clear golden yellow with a small cap of fine white head. The head disappears quickly and leaves no lace.

Aroma isn't good. Corn, DMS, apple. bit of alcohol, more than I'd expect for 4.8%. hint of citrus. white bread and cracker. bit grassy and herbal.

Taste isn't much better. Bit of sweet caramel. Corn and DMS. Apple. Light alcohol. Cracker. A bit grassy. Medium-low bitterness level.

Mouthfeel is okay. Light body with medium-high carbonation is about average. Clingy unpleasant aftertaste.

Drinkability isn't great. It gets a little better once it's had some time to breath, but never approaches "good". pass.

Bright golden color with a thin fluffy head with medium retention.
Elegant aroma of biscuit malt and herbal hops. Hints of oranges. Better than expected.
Malt sweetness, with mild citrusy and herbal notes. Hints of apple, white wines and cream crackers. Some diacetyl, but it does not bother. Aftertaste with medium dryness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Very smooth beer and easy to drink, but that shows its malty flavor. It is much better than mostly Adjunct Lagers from macros brewers, meaning it should please a broad range of beer drinkers looking for a mellow beer.

Pours from a very attractive bottle into a decidedly less attractive form. Sunflower-gold body, with a spongy, spotty head. As with Voll-Damm, another of the brewery's beers, toad's eye bubbles predominate.

Aroma is dullish, with newspaper pulp, citron, and pebbles.

Taste leads with a paste-like note, followed by more of the distinct paper/newspaper flavors first seen on the nose. Somewhat non-descript, but mercifully unoffensive.

Mouthfeel is appropriately full, like a sea of cottonballs. Could be a touch more stiff.

Overall, there's not a lot to say here. A remarkably non-descript tipple. I don't even think food would bring out any more notable qualities. Too many other good beers to drinkmin this world. Take a pass.

330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Golden yellow color, crystal appearance. White, close, fairly well retention crown. Floral aromas, hints of biscuit malt & slightly sugary touch. Sweet & fruity flavor, notes of biscuit malt. Light body, lively carbonation. Smooth malty mouthfeel. Slightly bitterness in the middle lingers into the finish. Easy drinkability.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Brown glass bottle with classic pressure cap served into Trappist Westvleteren goblet in Belfort, France. Reviewed live.

A: No head at all. Pathetic. Colour is a clear yellow.

Sm: Heavily malted barley and light cream. That's it. The aroma is moderately strong.

T: Malted barley with a light cream climax. It's pleasant and refreshing, but also simple and boring. It's certainly balanced; it's the build that's problematic.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but too thick. Partially complementary of the flavours in the body, but not tailored to them.

Dr: I've had many beers from this brewery, and this is not one of their best. It drinks easy and pairs well with food, but isn't a quality beer by any means. Try it but don't expect much, even if you're a hardcore fan of the style.

Another great looking bottle brought back from barcelona by my girlfriend.

A- Dark straw with a cheap looking white foam on top.

S- From the bottle, I can already smell some nasty corny aromas. Poured into a pilsner-like ordinary water glass. Smells a bit fruity and a little milky. Watery berry shake? Corn alcohol in the back.

T-Extremely smooth flavor ending in a rougher grain bitterness. Almost a popcorn quality to it. Hint Of Caramel With An acidic finish. Not much aftertaste apart from some of the bready bitterness.

M- Very smooth with medium to low carbonation. Not very dry.

O- I think many macro drinkers would love this since the flavor is so smooth. You'd certainly feel fancy with the nice bottle and all.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Amber coloured body with a shallow but dense head and sweet bread-like nose.

First impression could be a mild Lager from Munich, creamy and mild.

Aftertaste lacks precision: The hops remains in the background and cannot compete with the malty sweetness resulting in an rather heavy overall impression.

Pours a clear, light gold with a white, filmy head. Aroma is marzipan and bruised apple, which is obviously strange for a lager. Then it became more clear that the odd, ale-like notes could be explained away by diacetyl and acetaldehyde. Definitely some brewing flaws going on here. Flavor is grainy and watery with a lightly fruity character. Maybe a too-warm fermentation is to blame? Not horribly unpleasant, but not clean.
