I just tried a couple of fresh pints in Barcelona, where it is brewed. Very good, light, just the right amount of flavor. Based on other reviews it may not age/transport well to the US but in Barcelona don't hesitate to try it.

Served cold from 660ml brown bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Pale golden colour, clear, very bubbly, fluffy white head.

S) A bit of a weird metallic smell. Bits of lagery malt.

T) Pretty weak flavour, no real bitterness, a bit of a weird herbal flavour right in the back.

F) Light and quite fizzy. No skanky aftertastes, very drinkable.

O) Sub-par lager, if you want something cheap and cheerful go for Stella instead.

I like the red bottle, looks cool...

Brewed from barley and rice.

Look is pale lagerish and nothing special, best to drink from bottle :)

Aroma is fresh and hoppy.

You can definitely taste the rice. Works well actually. Though like most lagers and pilsners, I will probably be bored before the end of the glass!

And yes, I am bored.

Unique with the rice taste, though I much prefer the Madrid competitor, Mahou. However, I would enjoy this on a steaming hot day watching girls walk past in Barcelona. Though as an actual beer, it's only a little above lowly beers like Carlsberg.

It has a crisp taste, though not enough happening to really be unique, except the ricey taste that gives it a refreshing crispness

Like a watery lager. Not awful, and I will drink what I bought, but I won't be buying it again. Reminds me of my fav lagers, but doesn't quite make it.
