look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2

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.

2.63/5  rDev -8%
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.

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

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.

250ml served in a tulip glass.

A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a medium aired white head. Medium to low retention and practically no lacings left

S: Sweet in the nose. Sweet grains. Reminds an adjunct lager. Some flowery hops

T: Sweet upfront. Sweet grains, lager yeasts. A bit metallic. Bitter citrus hops in the end. Good bitterness. In overall, a dry taste

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Sweet upfront and quite pleasant hoppy bitter aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Mild but good hoppy bitterness. Not bad

This beer is the slightly more dry version of the Mahou line. I've had this both on-tap version and in can in Madrid. They're pretty similar but the on-tap version is more enjoyable.

A= golden, with a decent foamy white head, fair retention, then fading to lacing.

S= mild scent of malts and hints of hops florals. There's less sweetness apparent in the nose ie one senses that it's a slightly more dry beer.

T= slightly sweet barley malts, modest hops but far more than a typical US macro; slightly dry.

M= slightly dry but not astringent; hints of residual malt and slight hops bitters. An occasional metallic taste.

O= typical Euro style table lager or for casual occasions; this one is a good selection for those who aren't in the mood for a sweeter lager. Definitely much better than typical US macro lager.
