Caramel and toffee malt flavor dominate. Very modest light coffee roast taste. Slightly corny, and relatively sweet. Decent flavor, but still tastes cheap - I'd say it's a slight step up from many imported adjuncty brews. Forgettable, but not horrendous at all.

Picked up one of these at the local Carulla pricey for what it looks like, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a grape and earthy hop smell. Pours to a light bronze with a one finger head that recedes to a 1/4 inch. On the taste this brew is malty up front then transitions to a metallic middle then finishes slightly bitter and dry. A good drinker but not something I would seek out.

A good sample of a German Märzenbier style from Spain. A amber lager whit a good orange-gold collor. A light aroma of malt like a crust of bread in foreground with a little of floral hops in background. The malt aroma could be more pronounced, but is ok. In mouth the malt is again in foreground but balaced by the hop bitterness. The aftertaste is dry whit a persistent bitter end.

Best before end: 4/2015.

Pours a clear dark golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, sugar cane, and slight skunk aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet toast, earth, and sugar cane flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is super sweet and a bit hard to drink much of because of it.

Serving type: bottle.
