Was not much of a fan of the original...this however is a big improvement! Much more hops and more of a kick...a really great lager in fact.

Great balance of sweetness and bitterness...

From Mercadona. Better than the typical spanish macro beer and the normal cruzcampo because it doesnt have the metallic flavor. However, its only a normal pilsen, a dull one

Pours a crystal clear amber with a fizzy white head, aroma was stronger than expected and got to me even as I poured. That being said, the aroma is nothing spectacular, just prevalent. I can't even really pick out a certain scent, not that I have the best nose for it anyways, but it smells like any AAL you might bother pouring in a glass. Taste is equally unspectacular. Anyone that has had the bad luck to try a regular Cruzcampo would recognize the lack of taste outside of a metallic, coppery finish, there is a hint of a sweet malt profile trying to sneak through. The increased alcohol brings some body that is welcomed. Overall, not great, but much more palatable than its humble cousin and hey it's super cheap and 6.4%.

330ml can. Stange glass. Deep golden color, crystal clear appearance. Close crown, white froth. Honey, herbal & alcoholic aromas. As expected, it shows cloying flavors & intense alcoholic heat. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Watery texture. Grainy flavor & harsh herbal bitterness linger in long sweety alcoholic finish & aftertaste. Unbalanced.
