1.84/5 rDev -43%
This is one of the worst among those for which I have paid more than $2.00/beer. It has a terrible metallic taste that is also overly sweet. It tastes of adjunct, and aside from pouring with a large head and a nice bottle design, it is no better (and actually worse) than most macro beers I can get from a gas station. It has a sticky mouthfeel. Overall, save your money unless you're looking for an offense smelling lager that tastes like corn syrup and the bottle that it comes in.

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a medium lasting white head with some light lacing visible. Aroma and Taste is fruity, grainsm grassy with some malted barley and light bitterness. Palate is a light crisp body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with some fruity, grainy and light grassy notes and light bitterness. Did not know this was gluten free until after I had it, but overall an ok, slightly crisp lager,.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is heavy with grains. Taste is a bit unusual, grains, wet hay, some bitterness, not very good. Feels light in the mouth and overall I did not care much for this beer.

This "premium" Spanish lager pours a clean, clear, and attractive golden, with a fine 2-finger white head. Lace is attractive fence-row-style, too.
Nose is malty and adjunct. I get corn. Not good.
Tastes overly sweet and adjunct, too. To me, this is little better than the major lagers out there. Didn't know it was gluten-free, but I can't get past the generic taste. No, thanks.

Nearly two fingers of head, white. Pale yellow body.
Corn, grass. The aroma is overall very light.
I get corn and sweet pale malt. Hops are grassy and light. Very little bitter.
Light bodied. Washes down easily. Leaves no coating or residue.
This is a simple beer, and honestly not in a style I'm a huge fan of.

A-Pours a very clear golden color with a finger of white head.
S-Smells of pear and light, crackery malt with some herbal hops.
T-Follows the nose with pear upfront and some light, bready malts with a clean, bitter finish.
M-Pretty decently carbonated with a light body and prickly feel.
D-Very light and easy drinking beer, but not all that complex, which is all too typical of the style.

Pours a very clear very light golden yellow. One-finger white head that recedes quickly but leaves a decent amount of lacing. Good carbonation.
Smell is crisp and clean, mostly pale malts and noble hops. I get a bit of sweetness and a hint of banana. Smells a lot like a typical adjunct lager.
Tastes a lot like a typical adjunt lager, too. Most of the flavor is straightforward grainy pale malts with grassy vegetabley hops. Not a whole lot of malt character, less sweetness than the smell would suggest. Only a touch of bitterness that comes in late. Finish is quick and clean, with very little lingering flavor.
Mouthfeel is light and watery, almost no cling at all. Flavor is gone from the mouth rather quickly, and there's little left to remind me it was beer in my mouth. Carbonation is high, burning brightly throughout.
An average pale lager. Which is to say, a beer that I'm fine drinking, but doesn't really impress me in any way. It has the pale malt and noble hop character I expect, but nothing to distinguish itself in a positive or negative sense.

A- Pours a bright yellow color w/ a two finger white head. Good carbonation and lacing. This beer is very clear and easy to see through.
S- Malt, light hops, and a stinky, grassy, musky smell that is a real turnoff. I'm really hoping the taste is quite a bit better than this.
T- OK... Much better than the nose. The stinky smell doesn't show up in the taste at all. Malt, hops, and grain, and burned toast is what comes to the front. Fairly smooth, balanced, and not offensive.
M- Fairly smooth, w/ a tiny hop bite. Decent body for the style. Burned toast aftertaste.
O- Overall, it's decent- but that's about it. I don't think I'll try this one again, but glad I tried it.

Pours a medium-pale straw yellow color, with a thick, foamy head. The aroma primarily features sweet, bready malts, with only a small contribution from a must European hop profile. The flavor is likewise sweet and grainy, with bready malts up front and a more earthy bitterness dominating the finish. There is a fine, sharp carbonation, but the beer feels a little heavy for the style. Overall, this is more flavorful than most Euro lagers, but it is still not something to go to often.
