Spain is not usually associated with good beer, but we have some pretty strong brands. After I've been abroad and enjoyed multiple varieties, I always come back to my Mahou with delight (and a bit of surprise that it is still the best I've tasted). Ambar from Zaragoza is also very good -- their latest International Expo (dedicated to water) ads said "you will come for the water, you will return for the beer". San Miguel sells very well abroad and it is not bad.
As to keg beer, in most of Andalucía they tend to serve a disgusting yellowish stuff, beware; but in the center (esp. Madrid) you will see in most bars a lot of glasses filled with the most delicious golden liquid. It tastes even better than it looks.
In short, I hope that if our editor ever comes here (or has already) he will get a fair sampling of our goods, so that we get a fair place in the competition.
