L - clear yellow, white head, dissipates quickly
S & T - watery, corn and pilsner malt. Slight Whitebread sweetness. Very light. Then a generic Hop bitterness, but quite generously bitter, not too light.
F - thin, quite heavily carbonated

O - meh. It's beer. Must have when in Barcelona but not so much anywhere else

330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 8/2016. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Touch of yeast fruitiness, but not overdone. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderate crisp, and bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a nice pale lager style. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV. Nice hop presence for a Euro lager; with plenty of pilsner malt flavor too, aside from the adjunct notes. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This beer is all about the environment in which it is drunk. When it is 30degC in a beach bar in Spain it will taste excellent. On a cold Wednesday evening in Edinburgh it probably won't.

Decent enough session lager.
