2.5/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A -This one is clear, pale yellow, and supports a big fluffy white head that leaves some crisp dry lace on the glass. The head gets rocky on it's way down to a solid finger, where it stays for quite a while. This is a good lookin' brew.

S - Dank Euro-lager hops...like Grolsch or Heineken, on top of honeyed tea-like malt base. This is sweet and pleasant, and pretty damn complex for the style.

T - Again, black tea with honey and lots of sugar. Sweet flavors clash a bit with the acrid hops (think Danish green-bottle beers), and the hints of fruit. This one smells a lot better than it tastes.

M - Light bodied, but with more heft than most Latin-lagers. Relatively mellow carbonation and a sugary coating texture muddle this up a bit...it might have been better taking the high-carbonation route like other basic lagers.

D - This one tastes very strange, but not bad by any means. Hey, at least it has character in a style full of very similar and boring beers.

2.75/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

1 Litre Bottle (£2.99, Morrisons):
Very clear and with a pale straw coloured body, topped with a finger sized, bubbly white head that quickly settled to a patchy lacing on top.

Light with some sweet notes and a touch of corn coupled with some very mild citrus and hints of grassy hops. There are a few grain and malts traces too but overall it is pretty weak.

Light & inoffensive but not at all a good taste, there is some light lager malts and some mild, grassy hops alongside a touch of sweetness and a subdued, almost watered down bitterness.

Smooth & pretty thin bodied with a very sweet palate and mild carbonation.

A cheap, macro pale lager that is very ordinary and unexciting with not much going for it other than how easy it is to drink down, probably due to how thin it was. There is a light, bland taste to the beer and it's not one I'll be looking to try again.

2.45/5  rDev -15.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, bright white, fairly long-lasting head. No lacing at all.

S: Had a grainy aroma, with traces of malt and a little citrus.

T: Tasted of grain, malt and a little lemon, but mainly it was just thin and watery. Very little character.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Light-bodied.

D: Not a very drinkable beer.

2.08/5  rDev -28%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Quite a poor and unremarkable Eurolager...

Presentation: 25 cl brown capped bottle. Red, white and gold labels with the seal from the brewery. Notes best before date (24-06-11), ingredients, and Alc. by Vol. (4,6%). Served in a tulip glass.

A - Pale gold pour with a generous head, medium to low retention, and some touches of lacing.

S - Faint grainy nose with a light touch of hops and a lingering skunky whiff.

T - Small malty sense, with the same light presence of hops, a bit of corn, eurolager skunky touch. Rather forgettable.

M - Light body, very watery, with almost not carbonation. Rather poor.

D - This does not even work as a refreshing mediocre macro lager. The body kills it completely.

Notes: Not torture but with a minimal selection to chose from this is sure something to leave behind.

3.18/5  rDev +10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz.

Pours a wheat gold, very slightly hazy, minor sugar white head with quick dissipation but maintains as a film throughout.

Smells like barley malts. Nothing more, nothing less.

Tastes like barley malts as well, plus a bit of corn and very minor non-bitter hops.

Very crips feel. The carbonation is fairly soft.

Pretty good, goes well with Spanish food. Nothing spectacular but not hard to take either.

2.7/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden blondecolor, scarce foam, and not long standing.
Malty smell, a few hop, a typical macro lager, but without an heavy maltiness, and without strong presence of corn or other adjuncts.
Malt in the taste, but nothing else.
Almost no aftertaste, just a hint of bitterness.
A macro lager, but with no defects, and quite drinkable, in the end.

Serving type: on-tap
