From Hipercor San Juan de Aznalfarache. Playing Kings Bounty Dark Side. Pretty good for a macro beer. Caramel taste and medium body.

Appearance – Deep golden yellow in colour, with a two fingers of quickly dissipating soapy head. Tiny amount of carbonation in the glass and only very light lacing left behind.
Smell – Malty tones and yeast of a common lager. Hops are there also but not too pronounced
Taste – There are sweet roasted malts in this that come out in force on the taste with only mild hop bitterness on the back of the tongue. Some banana and spice in here too but not very strong.
Mouthfeel – A fair amount of boozy warmth which for a 7%er is not surprising combined with a dry finish.
Overall – Rather nice for the style and an improvement on Amstel (which I personally like) this one is a pretty good go to beer for something quick and refreshing.

It pours to a straw like gold body with a nice white head and adequate lace. It has a fruity and strong malt aroma. The flavor is about the same as the aroma but with a bit of a hop bite at the end. For the most part there it is sweet with some mild yeast spice. The mouthfeel is medium and just a little bit slick.

Bottle of 300 ml at home, poured into a standard type of glass.
Very deep golden yellow colour, with a two fingers of soapy head, quickly dissipating. Activity in the glass is minimal. Light lacing left behind.
Aroma is of roasted malts and very slighty of hops.
The roasted malts are also to be found on the taste, making this beer more sweet than bitter, although some bitterness lingers on the aftertaste. The alcohol of 7% is very well hidden.
On the body is medium thick and is highly carbonated. Alcohol gives a warming feeling which becomes stronger once the beer has warmed up itself. Dry on the palate.
Overall a good beer, maybe it would be even better in the winter. I consider it to be the "premium"sister of Amstel Sterk (Strong) 7,5%.
