GBZ59 (1094) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUN 15, 2014
Lata de 500ml. Copa Globo. Color oro brillante con espuma blanca que conforma una corona tupida pero fugaz. Aromas de hierbas, trazos de costra de pan, notas de disolvente y barniz, azúcar y alcohol, caramelo y leve diacetilo. Entrada dulzona redondeada por matices afrutados, de albaricoque y pera, con toques de anís y comino. Cuerpo medio/pleno y carbonatación moderadamente alta. Textura densa y untuosa. Los sabores de fruta madura con alcohol evidente y fenoles, permanecen en el prolongado final dulce. Persistente retrogusto afrutado. Una cerveza bastante correcta con un alto ABV bien integrado que, aunque no resulta áspero, es peligrosamente dulce. 500ml can. Snifter glass. Bright gold headed by white froth. Close but brief crown. Herbs, hints of bread crust, solvent-like & polish notes, sugar & alcohol, caramel & some diacetyl to the nose. Sweetish upfront rounded by fruity hues- apricot & pear- & as well as anise & cumin touches. Medium to full body. Moderately high carbonation. Oily & buttery texture. Ripe fruit flavors, evident alcohol & fenol notes linger into a long sweet finish. Extended fruity aftertaste. Pretty correct beer where high ABV is well integrated - even though not harsh -but dangerously sweety.

Lowenbrau (1889) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 13, 2014
500ml can from Hipercor. @home 13-04-2014.
In short: a boozy lager.
Pours clear deep gold with frothy white head. Sweet, honey, fruity aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite sweet, alcohol noticed. Way too unbalanced. Poor.

MichaelAwesome (3641) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Simpel, süß und voller Bumms. Ein bisschen zu streng im Abgang, während die MItte durchaus zu gefallen weiß. Leicht malzig - muffig, derb. Kann man dennoch trinken.

McTapps (3641) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 6, 2014
Pours out of the can in a deep golden colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and straw. Taste of light malt, hops, caramel, straw and honey. Sweet finish. Easy drinkable and not that bad actually.
