I got this bottle from my dad, who spent a holiday in south of Spain. He got it at the local "supermercado". It took some time to find out who made it; It is brewed in Belgium at Brouwerij Martens NV exclusivly for Spanish/Portuguese supermarket chain "El Corte Ingles".

Now, the review:

A: The colour is surprisingly dark - clear golden. But the head is almost non existing - thin white.

S: When you open the bottle a corn(y) smell spreads in the room. And when you pour it the smell is dominated by corn, but also a chemical/cheap smell. There are also citric notes. Faint malt and even fainter bitter hops.

T: Banana and citrus at first, then almost nothing except the corn from the smell. The faint malt is unbalanced. Over all a weak taste.

M: There is almost no aftertaste at all, only some sweetness. The body is thin, the carbonation is rich.

D: A weak product, but it works on the beach on a sunny day.
