330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Sep 15, courtesy of Jeremy Haddock. Pours a very hazy yellow with foamy white head. Peppery vanilla nose. Taste brings tripel yeast and a strange perfumed parma violet sherbet sweetness coming into play. No salt. Overall a standard Spanish blonde with esoteric moments.

Do not worry too much about the sea water, there is some salt palate in. The finish but never a salty beer. Palate is fine, beer ok, like any lager really.

Bottle at the Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange Group meeting on 16th Sep 2015: one of my offerings. Expected a unique flavour or distinct taste, this was not the case. Lively pour, a cloudy/misty golden colour with a large white crown on top. Mild yeast like aroma and taste with no salty Sea Dog influence at all. Light malts with a slight citrus note or two, really came across as just a blonde brew with a fairly bland feel to it.

Surprisingly great. Considering the other beer I’ve had with sea water. Bright, fresh and yeasty. Like a lovely fresh bread. Lovely long doughy aftertaste.

To be honest, expected a lot worse and more of uniqueness. However this beer tastes like a usual blondie, does not come with a kick of saltiness you might expect. You can’t really smell the sea breeze out of sniff at it. Yet it certainly has a foamy and thick head. Just an average blondie, not tasteless.

Tomada en cervecerria Kraken Oviedo, Cerveza suave, color pajizo, refrescante. Ligero gusto a algas y sal.
Al calentan cambia bastante, volviendo un tanto indigesto y desagradable esa salinidad.
