The cheapest beer in Madrid to buy (except Lidl/Aldi maybe) by volume. The perfect option if you only have 65 cents, as it gives you a litre! A bit artificial though and even contains caramel colorings and stabilizers...

Although it mentions the Bavaria brewery above, I cannot find any mention of this on the bottle, it seems to be Spanish brewed.

If only this was amazing, how cool it is to be able to have a litre of beer for 65 cents in Spain? So if you have 15,000 Euros in your bank account, you can buy 23,076 litres. Enough for 100 pints a day, for a year! What fun you could have...

Head is washing up liquidy, though ok, aroma is mildly malty and hoppy, however also a bit chloriney, like it's made from tap water instead of purified.

Originally I had this and just gave it low marks for having dodgy ingredients, however taste is not too bad. It's dry, some hops, with some chloriney malt. Drinkable. Just a bit boring...but fine to drink.

It gets extra marks I guess for price, in the overall section. Better than Carrefour probably based on price, though behind Lidl and probably Aldi

Better than some macro beers with more fame (like Mahou), so chapeou for its low price. Its still an average lager, but not one of the worst

This Dutch pure malt beer was made for the DIA supermarket chain in Europe.
Light golden color with a one finger head with short retention.
Light aroma with notes of herbal hops, mild sulfur and sugary malt.
Flavor with notes of malt sweetness, mild sulfur, just a bit of wet cardboard and minerals, and some herbal hops. Dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Watery body with good carbonation.
Although this is pure malt brew, it is not really better than a decent Adjunct Lager. Body was too thin and some mild off-flavors bothered a bit. Being an import, it has a very bad cost benefit in Brazil.
