look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a 3/4 pint glass (Creemore Springs Lager Theme!). No best before date (just the custom bottle).

A - slight head that stays around less than a minute with very little lacing. Dark amber, clear and with very little obvious carbonation.

S - malty base with just a slight overtone of skunkiness (in a good way).

T - clear and tart with very subtle hops and an enduring subtle toasty malt. Strong flavors, but noting really stands out!

M - very nice sharp carbonation to offset the bitterness. Heavier than it looks.

D - extremely drinkable. Could (and have) had a number of these to great effect. Nice daily drinking beer.

Very satisfying drink with a knife's-edge balance of hoppy bitterness with toasted malt to great effect. Would love to have this one again.

Found this in the main liquor store and they had 6 six packs that sat on a pallet near the back. Some restaurant ordered this and for some reason it ended up being sold at retail. I gave one to Malto on his trip to Vancouver and he had to add the brewery to BA. I would be interested if anyone else has had this beer.

This beer poured a nice dark gold and had a bready nose. I enjoyed the fullness of the body as I expected standard Eurolager.
The higher ABV makes this beer taste more like Singha than Becks. Cool find.

Poured a not-excited gold with a foamy head.

Smells of mild malt, fruit, some hop.

Mouthfeel is a touch chewy for a basic lager, a little thicker than what I'd expect from a cerveza, and in a good way.

First taste is corn, but not adjunct corn, like the real-deal maize. Some tiny hop bite, a whiff of alchohol and a very refreshing finish.

A good brew. A welcome departure from standard macros.

330ml engraved label bottle. Pokal glass. Review on jun´12 –enjoyed many times since Antonio, one of my best friends, bought it for me fifteen years ago. Bright golden color, crystal appearance. White, small bubbled, froth creates a close & creamy crown. Good retention. Sweet malty aroma & citric hop hues. Light body, moderate carbonation. Sweet maltiness & pleasant bitterness provide smooth & creamy palate. Very nice drinkability. Refreshing & flavorful.

Had this one in The Smiling Jack club in Lleida during my stay in Catalunya. A nicely designed bottle.

A: Copper/yellow color with a tiny white head

S: Sweet malts with some fruity notes. A bit thin.

T: Malts, sweetness which is best defined by caramel (might also come from the use of corn). Red fruits make this brew special. Hint of citrus.

M: Medium/high carbonation with a pleasant bosy that fits this beer.

D: Had this one for 2 nights in a row at the same club. Will surely drink this one again on my return to Lleida, but will not do any effort to find this beer in Holland.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A clear dark gold beer with an off-white head that leaves some lacing.

The smell has some earthy aromas from the malt, the hops adds some grass and spices.

There is sweetness upfront, brown sugar, but also bread and wood, a good balanced bitterness. Almost a vinous feeling.

Medium carbonation, smooth, rather complex, a small dryness at the end.

A bit sweet but rather well balanced, worked well with dark meat.

Tasted this on 9th Oct 2006, a present from Spain.
This was presented in a green unlabelled 330ml bottle with embossed writing on the glass.
Poured a very nice darkish shade of amber with a good dense white head that lasted and left lacing on the glass. Smell was very strong, bursting forth before the brew was poured. Smelled of dense "grassy" hops.
Taste was subdued hops with some other undertones (couldn't put a finger on it). Alcohol well disguised and a nice mouthfeel made this a good well crafted brew and quite drinkable.

I tasted it 8 months ahead of expiration date. Interesting engraved bottle. Poured a 2 finger head that dissipated quickly. Golden color apperance.
Pleasant and mild aroma of hops. Good carbonnation, with a medium body. Taste of grains, with bitterness coming in the middle and fading. Alcohol of 6.4% was well hidden, and use of corn did not harm much. Above average lagers.
