Created by our first Master Brewer, Mr. Charles Schlaffer, this beer is brewed to an original recipe dating back to 1901. With its subtle aromas of liquorice and caramel it is gentle to the palate, whilst the barley and sugarcane content ensures a smooth but firm body.

Moderate foam. It is brewed from an old recipe from 1901 developed by the brewery’s first brewmaster Charles Schlaffer. Fine aroma of little licorice. The taste is also slightly licorice and dark rye bread. Along with dark caramel and roasted malt are left with an flavor spectrum with great palate. Sweetness level this time is kept at an appropriate level, unlike the other two beers I have tasted so far from this brewery. A dark lager should like to have a reasonably high sweetness and that is exactly what Ambar Negra has, however, without being too intrusive. Hop bitterness is present, but only so that it forms a fine balance in the beer and gives a long aftertaste. It is not a dark lager that tops what I previously tasted of the same type, but definitely the best from La Zaragozana to date.

jamaty (1751) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2015
Espuma beige oscura, poco duradera. El aroma es tostado y regaliz. En boca es suave, aguada y de sabor agradable, con postgusto de regaliz. Quizá mejor que sus equivalentes de otras cerveceras industriales, pero no para repetir.

Black ish with small bubbly lace. Interesting but not appeal, cheese, petty sure there are no hops. Dry, sourish, bready, milky, thin. Different... But honestly pretty awful. (33cl bottle from a La Corte Ingles)
