Good, not bad lager, but a little tiring, after all, Spanish like lager beers, and this is the beer for them, as in LAtin America. It is better to try it in Madrid and in tap, believe me. IN can is not the sme feeling of refreshness, and of cours,e in a hot day.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has lots of grains, some malts. Taste is crisp, malts, grains, hints of lemon, highly refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good example of this style.

A beer, that correctly poured, has a good head and some lacing. No proper smell, but the taste is OK, malty and hoppy. The mouthfeel is awesome if it is chilled down, exceptional if it is a warm day. Anyway I would not consider this an Adjunct, but more of a European Pale Lager.

Mahou pours a clear, deep golden body beneath an average-sized head of creamy white. The head retention is good, and it leaves rings and patches of tiny spotted lace at the outset of the glass. Streams of tiny bubbles can be seen rising steadily. The nose combines grassy hops, gently sweet and grainy malts, a bit of corn, and yeasty fruitiness; and is simply an extension of the flavor held within. It's very lightly bitter, and leans towards maltiness with a cereal-like character to it. The grassy and subtly spicy hops help to balance it, but it still finishes a touch sweet. The malt lingers, but eventually gives way to some spicy hops as it fades. It's more interesting and satisfying than a standard American macro or Euro lager, but it's not particularly well done.

Gold-colored body with steady, creamy head, slow in dissipating and leaving sticky lacing behind. The smell is light fruity malts with a doughy texture.

In the mouth, this lager has a medium-bodied, creamy feel that I found enjoyable to drink. Bready malt flavor dominates, with notes of lemon-lime. Firm hop finish makes this beer a solid, drinkable lager in my book. Would go well with food or snacks.

Single, 11.2 oz bottle just purchased from Total Wine and More in River Edge...
Pours a dark-gold hue with an impressive foamy head that exibited adequate staying power before slowly receding and leaving behind a thin film of lacing...
Corny, grainy aroma with mild hints of caramel detectable in the nose...
Crisp, clean, flavorful taste, surprisingly good for a Macro...
Average mouthfeel along with an equally average level of drinkability... A step-above the normal Macro, but still nothing above and beyond...
