I am actually very surprised that this beer is not well rated. It rivals my favorite German lagers. For me, this specific beer represents everything that a light-bodied lager should be. It maintains a very refreshing feel from start to finish, and that's exactly what is ideal.

Had this on tap at a pub in a park...Christmas Day I think it was. Overall, not great, but not that bad...I have had worse for the style. It was smooth and easy to drink. If in Spain again, sure, but would not order it elsewhere.

330ml bottle. Standard Spanish pale lager. Very pale, very grainy, very sweet, dry finish, smooth & crisp. Mouthfeel is good. Otherwise pretty bland which is typical of the style.

It looked good; I do like a bit more head and lacing. Pleasant smell and taste. Slightly sweet, breads, but crisp. A malty finish.

This is not an offensive pale lager. It looked fine; I do like a bit more head and lacing. Pleasant smell and taste. Slightly sweet, breads, but crisp. A malty finish.

Disclaimer: not rating this beer as a craft beer.
12oz bottle poured in to glass.
Look: pale gold, with a medium white head.
Smell: Corn, biscuits, and grassy notes.
Taste: corn, biscuits, grassy notes. The hops make this stand out. It makes a balanced flavor.
Feel: classic Macro, session beer.
Overall: this beer is probably one of the best non craft beer, I have ever had

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

I wouldn't really recommend it.

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.
