Not too sure what this is to be honest, and how it is different from the Especial and the Tradicion. Especial is definitely the best of the 2 by far, as long as it is Spanish brewed. This looks a bit lighter in colour.

Very effrvescent appearance. Super bubbly like bubble bath. Surprisingly strong aroma. I think it has corn in. And smells a bit like olives almost. Kind of like the Nastro Azzuro light Peroni.

Malt is almost absent entirely. Taste is unusual, nothing like the Especial that I just drank. That actually had depth of malt flavour, in this, it's totally absent. And this gets a higher score than that? I think too many people were drunk when they reviewed this, or suffering from sun stroke. Or they were rating the UK Especial instead of the Spanish one.

I taste less here than in a Cruzcampo, which is one of the most tasteless beers I have ever had. Feel is like water.

After a surprisngly good Especial, this rather surprised me. Perhaps one should drink it in the middle of a desert with lots of sun stroke while drunk and it's good? Probably.

Clear 330 ml bottle, from Kiwi Tau. ABV is 4.4%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, small white head. Moderate sweetish aroma of candy and newmown grass. Minimal flavour, a little citrus, at least it is not offensive. Hardly any bitterness.

From Dia. Playing Kings Bounty Dark Side, Legado de Yuste glass. An avrage lager, but not of the worst ones. Maybe its because of suggestion caused by its name, but i seems a little more refreshing than others

Fresca is the new refreshing lager from San Miguel. It is brewed to the high level of quality that has become synonymous with the San Miguel name. Using a unique brewing formula, the flavours combine to produce an extremely well balanced and crisp lager. San Miguel Fresca is golden in colour, best served with a slice of lime to fully appreciate the refreshing, fruity taste. Fresca takes inspiration from the vibrant Spanish social scene, which epitomises living life to the full and enjoying all the moments along the way.
