Bottle: Poured a clear golden color lager with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of residual sugar and adjunct notes is more or less pleasant. Taste is also dominated by residual sugar notes with some adjunct that is more or less pleasant overall. Body is about average with good carbonation. Adjunct base lager with limited flavour profile.

Sometimes people think that beer is good and it is still the same crap that the vast majority of Spanish commercial beers. With star galicia happens, beer unfortunate that people think that is good. All this lamentable

Good head level, inviting reddish lager colour, good amount of effervescence.

Frothy aroma with hops.

Fairly well-balanced, dry and quite bitter. Not a strong taste, though pleasant and complex.

Feel is good also, great altering of flavors on the tongue.

Liking this actually

The beer is finished with a light dark yellow color. The foam is white and a little svårflörtat to come up. The foam has small to medium bubbles and disappears relatively quickly. The foam does not leave any direct traces in the glass. The scent has a lightly roasted barley. It is light malty with hints of lemon and some honey. Are some bread smell, but otherwise resembles that of a typical light lushunna stock. The flavor has a slightly roasted malt tons in itself. Also here you will find lemon and a little bread. Some honey and a little more bitter than expected. Got it in the finish. Light body. Average high Carbonic. Slightly bitter and surprisingly affordable okay. Small resentment and bitterness.

330ml Can from Mini Mix Russian Shop, Barcelona (€0.80):
Quite a light & thin beer that was also pretty bland but on the whole it probably wasn't quite as bad as I'd been expecting, although nor was it a particularly enjoyable beer either. There was some basic bread malts & faint citrus but beyond that there wasn't too much of anything to get me interested sadly.

From a 330ml brown bottle. Label shows 4.7% ABV, which is different to brewery's own website.

Pours very dark gold with subtle carbonation and a white head that recedes quickly to a ring with little lacing.

Smell is grainy and sweet.

Tastes sweet and grainy, with a bitter finish

Medium body with a little richness and nice spritz of carbonation. Some drying bitterness in the finish.

A solid bitterness saves this lager from the watery, bland grave inhabited by other European pale lagers. Drunk cold, outside, preferably with friends, this is an acceptable thirst quencher. Would prefer a German pilsner though.
