I picked this up because it said it was a light but hoppy lager and the price was okay (abt $1/bottle). Not sure if it is worth that but for I to find out if there was a Spanish hoppy beer. The appearance is light golden with alot of bubbles during the pour but they dissipated quickly. Taste is like a weak lager (hence the light lager name), not too much hops shining through and some malts. Mouthfeel is very light and fizzy. Drinkability is okay-could certainly drink a few without any damage to my ability to walk. Not really my choice for a session.

Pours pale golden, almost white with large white foamy head that leaves dense patchy lacing. Aroma is very strong Saaz hops (as promised on the bottle) in the beginning, weak malty background; after a couple of minutes all the hops are gone, but I have to admit that aroma is rather good for such a light lager.

Taste is dissapointing sweet and lightly citrusy malt that is gone in seconds, the feeling that the beer is heavily diluted. At the end of the glass the beer reminds of lemon water. Mouthfeel is very light with low carbonation.

Overall, I am dissapointed. I know I should not expect too much from this type of beer, but at least it could have some taste.

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

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

a: pours a clear pale golden, 1 finger white head dissipates a thin film. a few bubbles rising.

s: some light malts and corniness, a fairly faint saaz hop smell. not much else.

t: a light maltiness, a tiny hop bite, but most of the crispness comes from the carbonation rather than the hops. fairly watery. a faint lemony flavor as well.

o: not particularly interesting, seems to me like a standard watered down lager. good thing i wasn't expecting a czech style pilsener with the "saaz-only" advertising, as this wasn't it.
