3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl. bottle. Copper color, low gasification, hazy liquid. off-white head, average sized, not very creamy, diminishes in few seconds. Aroma is hoppy, remembers of pine. Body is moderate, carbonation is average to high. Dry, bitter, metallic finish. Taste is sweeter than the usual for an IPA, a little of caramel. Simple but well balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska på Cat Bar, Barcelona. Oerhört orangevitt skum, grumligt bärnstensfärgad öl. Aromen sticker till bra i näsan: russin, melon, citrus och fin maltsötma. Smakar precis lika bra, där russinen och melonen återkommer, liksom apelsin. Trevlig beska i eftersmaken.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at One Pint Pub, 20111111) The beer poured brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops, malts and berries. Palate was medium bodied and fizzy. Flavours were hops, berries, malts, fruitiness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Unclean and a bit faulty but not hopeless.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crude stuff. Generic kit-homebrew appearance of murky red brown with disappearing head (as with all Spanish beers!) leaving a rim of white around a fizzing brown liquid. not appetising. aroma heavy with roasted malt and not much hops to speak of. very quick finishing flavour, dominated by clumsy roasted malt, sour astringent yeast bite, and a dull throbbing bitterness. Everything is wrong with this beer, poor spaniards must be wondering why bother with anything not yellow and fizzy when this is the alternative.
