Bought at the supermarket. 33 cl bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Very dark amber almost red colour. No signs of carbonation. Small head of foam (1-2 mm). Maybe because I hadn't the required glassware, mine actually with bigger radius; head faded away.
Obvious smell of wood/oak. I personally like it. It gives a roasty feeling.
The first taste is according to its smell, but it fades away after a while.
The feel after tasting leaves a "dry" mouth but doesn't hint the previous first taste.
Maybe it is quite common such "cask"-style beer in the US, but in Spain it is a rarity. Therefore I would recommend it to local drinkers searching for something different, not something to get wasted.

This is a useless brew- way to destroy the original Mahou (which is a decent mass-produced fizzy yellow Euro lager) with a barrel treatment that adds nothing of value.

Who wants oak and vanilla notes on their Budweiser? No thank you.

In Spain, when you look for a commercial beer that can be seen without putting in your mouth a beer-flavored by-product costs a lot. This one still stays. That yes, the barrel is only in the name

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Bright golden colour, medium head with long retention (it keeps there until the end), good lace.
Aroma: Well, there's good oak notes but there's too much corn. Yo fool no one with this. Malty and bread too.
Medium to full body, creamy texture, alive carbonation.
Taste has oak notes too, some vanilla, grains.
Another mass beer that has seen the rising of tradicional and artisannal and tries do something to gain that kind of public. Correct, nothing really special.

From El Corte Ingles. In its glass. After dinner. Oak toach soft enough to not overwhelm but providing interest. Very different to usual mahou: Not a refreshment, enjoyable in short sips. Avg 3.5

14 Jul 2018. From Corte Ingles. In Teku glass. At lunch. The wood touch was a bit more strong than I remembered and that I'd desire
