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.

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.

2.05/5  rDev -28.3%

Can acquired in Ibiza, Spain and served into a Guinness pint glass. 5.50% ABV confirmed. Reviewed from notes taken April 2011.

A: Surprising cream in the head for the low price. Decent thickness in the four finger head. Good retention. Body colour is a textbook yellow. Looks like a typical pedestrian macrolager barley shite beer.

Sm: Very light scene of generic clean barley. Very one note.

T: One note: clean barley. No watery quality, thankfully. Simple crap. Built poorly and imbalanced.

Mf: Coarse and wet. Doesn't suit the style. Unrefreshing.

Dr: Hides its ABV fairly well. A garbage beer for getting knackered. Take it for what it is. To its credit, it's priced right where it ought to be.

No foam, just a very thin ring. Low-medium carbonation with tiny bubbles. It tates sweet grains with a rather dry feel. Light body.
Though it carries just 5,5% of alcohol content, It shows up entirely in its aroma and taste. At least I did not feel any non-desired metalic taste.
