Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Randomly came upon this on my local's mix-a-six rack and felt I had to try it. I mean, it's a new Spanish brew, why not? It pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild sweet biscuit, light sweet flowers, a touch of minerals, and a bit of corn for good measure. The taste brings in more of the same, basically a corn bread manifested as a beer. Surprisingly, though, it works well here. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a nice Euro lager, one I found to be surprisingly drinkable and enjoyable despite its plain-ness and seeming lack of ambition. I'd have it again were I in the mood for something in this style.
