look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

On the can it says "Tradicional" as opposed to lager, pretty sure it's the same one though. Drinking on a very hot spring afternoon (possibly might get a few extra points for this!)

This is one of the cheapest commercial beers you can buy in Madrid where my flat is...even less than the local one Mahou.

Very good head for a lager, creamy and long lasting, with refreshing colour. Though not much happening with the aroma!

Deep bitterness and well balanced flavor, no metallic hint, even though it's from a can. Certainly good value and tastes natural, and like it is made with quality ingredients. I think it would be better if it was a bit stronger, perhaps with more hops...it's lucky therefore that I have the Especial version chilling behind me in my fridge...woo.

I will give this a fairly good rating for taste, though to be really good it needs a few more things to be happening, more hops etc. I would probably get bored of this after a few glasses.

Anyway top notch vs value

Re-reviewing this, now from a bottle!

Leaving above comments same, though ratings have increased, a bit!

Refreshing and easy to drink, but it doesn't have much flavor or character to it.

One of many beers tasted on a whirlwind tour of Spain. Loved Granada (the city) but this beer was a real disappointment. Very mild, yet raw (like the brewers haven't bothered to work with it at all). Avoid: there are many better choices in Granada and in Spain.

1 Litre Bottle (£2.99, Morrisons):
Very clear and with a pale straw coloured body, topped with a finger sized, bubbly white head that quickly settled to a patchy lacing on top.

Light with some sweet notes and a touch of corn coupled with some very mild citrus and hints of grassy hops. There are a few grain and malts traces too but overall it is pretty weak.

Light & inoffensive but not at all a good taste, there is some light lager malts and some mild, grassy hops alongside a touch of sweetness and a subdued, almost watered down bitterness.

Smooth & pretty thin bodied with a very sweet palate and mild carbonation.

A cheap, macro pale lager that is very ordinary and unexciting with not much going for it other than how easy it is to drink down, probably due to how thin it was. There is a light, bland taste to the beer and it's not one I'll be looking to try again.
