2.63/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin bright white head that never completely faded away.
S: There are moderate aromas of adjunct malts in the nose along with notes of grassy hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of grainy malts. A light amount of bitterness is present and this lingers through the finish, helping to make the taste less offensive. Flavors of cooked corn seem to stand out among the adjuncts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It neither feels thin nor watery.
O: This beer goes down easily but isn't very impressive in the smell or taste categories.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Oct 2014. Acquired as part of a 4-pack from a B&M store.

Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A clear golden colour with light carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before dissipating. Some lacing. Aroma of light malt with hints of stewed leaves and a touch of cardboard. Faintly harsh.

Tastes of weak malt with a dry finish. Notes of ultra-light malt, stewed leaves, harsh cardboard and a twinge of solvent. Unpleasant background flavour. Well-attenuated, followed by a crisp bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with decent carbonation and a thin, watery body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of acrid stewed leaves and woodchips.

Meh - another subpar macrolager. Looks OK, while the aroma and flavour are dull and plagued by subtle off-notes that linger on the palate. Watery body. There's hardly anything to it; faint stewed leaves but that's it. Might be refreshing on a very hot day, though even then I would suspect that you could find something better. Give it a miss.

During around a week in Madrid, this was probably the best beer I discovered. I am not really a fan of lager in general, though this has a unique taste that really complements Madrid. It is quite bitter and hoppy, with covert lemon and floral undertones, and all of its elements combine to form an overall flavour that is really different to the lagers of Holland, Germany, Czech and England.

The colour has a depth to it that is inviting in the glass. In the mouth, it's froth really gives you an experience. And the smell is as good as any lager I have had.

Beers always taste better when they are brewed locally, though I also had a Mahou in England, and the flavour was still there.

12 oz bottle. Pours pale straw with short lived, white, thin head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of hay and sweet malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of some grassy hops and malt. Some bitter aftertaste. I have a feeling I just drank a pale lager.
