Appearance: Pours a hazy, lemon color with one finger white head, good lacing.

Smell: Pronounced aromas to the nose. Tropical fruit, floral, vanila , and citrus aromas.

Taste: Same as the nose. Tropical fruit, floral, vanila and citrus. Dominate of floral taste.

Mouthfeel: Good balanced. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth finish without astringency.

Overall: A refreshing, good balanced session IPA.

PS: In my opinion I thing that is very suitable for a hot summer day in addition of a lager. I bought it from a supermarket in Spain, just for 1 euro, a good value for money.

Cerveza con dos dedos de espuma burbujeante de retención media. Ligera y de baja carbonatación. Aroma cítrico y a vainilla. En boca es afrutado con notas de vainilla. A solo 1€ es una muy buena opción.

A pretty simple pale ale, with moderate hops (Vic Secret in this case) addition, pale coulour and a flowery smell and taste. Not something to stand out, but refreshing and also very moderate price.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Decent enough budget pale ale, OK for the price.

Greenish yellow apearance, quite hazy. One finger of off-white foam.
Fruit smell, white pulp, with peach, apricot, pineapple, unripe apple, ripe pear.
Same notes in the taste. A bit loaded for a session IPA, but, after all, quite rinkable.
A lot of pear in the aftertaste.
Light body. Honest.

Pours a hazy orange coloration with a small, fluffy head. Smells of biscuity malt and somewhat faint, grassy, citrus/tropical hops, with a certain multivitamin tablet aroma. Taste is a decent balance of biscuity, grainy malt and grassy, citrus/tropical hops, with slightly artificial seeming notes of orange, passionfruit and pineapple as well a light, grassy dankness. Finishes with a light bitterness and some tropical accents lingering in the aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel with a light body and medium carbonation.

This is an okay Pale Ale that's a bit too sweet and grainy for my personal taste, while the hops also have that certain, somewhat artificial, multivitamin tablet feel to them typical of hop extracts, with a somewhat light and thin body/mouthfeel as well. Still, it's a pretty drinkable, refreshing Pale Ale with some nice tropical accents that's decent enough for 60 cents a can, although I certainly wouldn't buy it again.
