330 ml can, bought in Tenerife. Pale golden colour, decent head. Sweetish fruity and grassy aroma, notes of maize (corn) too. Flavour is watery and "neutral" with some tolerable hops in the finish. Acceptable as a thirstquencher, but not much more.

This beer is mocked throughout Spain, and rightly so. Only tolerable when drunk ice cold on a blistering hot afternoon in Andalusía. As soon as it starts to warm, even a tad, it becomes sweet & sickly. It labels itself as a pilsner. Hmm. A pilsner with no hop character at all. Poor.

Makes a decent base for a shandy though.

surprised this doesnt have better ratings, everyone always seems to take things out of context, or at least thats my assumption on a lot of global lagers like this, i mean against all beer yeah its not a standout, but against euro pale types its solid, and against much of the rest of the spanish lager scene, its quite strong. see its more a pils than a classic pale lager, more grain character without the sweetness, more crisp at the end, some bittering hops in play, and overall a fantastic texture thats dry, uplifting, almost nitro feeling, had this on the glacial draft, apparently colder than average, and it was delightfully clean and refreshing. pretty pour too, an inch of permanent and thick white head on top of radiant golden brassy brew, lovely clarity. some floral character to the hops as it warms, a touch metallic as many of them are here then too, but a fast finish nevertheless. decent body to it, more of a german malt thing too, less cheap tasting than its peers, and frankly a delicious little brew that i could have made an afternoon of. i like how it seemed common to serve small pours of this so that constant cold ones could be brought, makes awesome sense for outdoor daytime drinking. way way way better than its ratings here in my experience...

On tap. White head with lace. Golden color. Clear.

Earthy and grassy hops. Bready and biscuit malts. Typical pils flavor. Dry and lightly bitter.

Light bodied. Easy drinking.

This smells and tastes really like a typical Euro Lager - tastes like a damp washing cloth, tastes rotten but if you drink it quick enough, it tastes boozy. This latter is a good point for me. But still, for only 40 cents this beer is way better than most of the Euro Lager crap you get for twice or three times more in Hungary... so no complaints - but no praises either.

Bought in Spain, from a litre bottle poured in a caña glass.
Bright crystalline pale gold color, bitter creamed corn aroma.
Starts with good head and carbonation, but they don't last very long, close to flat after the first half (and it's a small glass 20cl). light body.
Refreshing, watery, nothing special, very tasteless, somehow bitter, maybe herbal hops.
Although I am Spanish, I got to admit I am not prod of this beer.
Paired with a delicious jamón serranno, that would go really with with an IPA. Well, next time!

Can and on-tap: Poured a clear golden color ale with a nice white foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light adjunct notes with some residual sugar notes is OK. Taste is a mix of residual sugar notes with some adjunct and light cereal notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Another pale lager with too much residual sugar and limited flavours.

Light and refreshing. Almost like water. When it is really hot, this ice cold is not a bad option.

Difficult to rate, it definitely is not a complex, tasteful beer, however it's refreshingness is immense.

Actually you may as well just mix another beer with water, fuck this
