Mala es poco. El nombre esta bien escogido: Bad Barley. Pero Bad, bad bad. No tiene aromas notables, el color deja que desear... No se ni por donde empezar a buscarle algo positivo.

D_and_D (4) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2013 does not count
Aroma: Carmel, citrus and malt slight alcohol. Appearance: medium dark amber. Cloudy, no head or lacing. Taste: carmel, roasted barley. malt, citrus, alcohol, and a bit of astringency/tannins. Finish is sweet citrus. Probably my favorite Spanish beer and definately a good change to overabundance of mass produced beers in southern Spain

[ASPETTO] ambra carico, tendente al marrone ma con tonalità porpora e riflessi aranciati contro luce, turbia [SCHIUMA] color crema, media presenza, fine e media persistenza [OLFATTO] profumi nettamente maltati con una evidente tostatura ed una sensazione di un leggero affumicato, a cui si aggiungono profumi di caramello, cioccolato al latte ma anche un tocco fruttato (frutta matura e sotto spirito) ed un leggero speziato (vaniglia, amaretto) alcolico che infonde profumi liquorosi [GUSTO] approccio dolce, ma non troppo, con sapori che ricordano ancora caramello, una leggera astringenza e un finale speziato con note alcoliche evidenti e leggermente pepate. [TEXTURE] corpo medio basso, media carbonazione, alcohol evidente [COMMENTO FINALE] ringrazio il produttore & son per avermi sopportato una buona mezzora in occasione della fiera di Colmenar Viejo.. e anche per la una birretta offerta. In occasione dello stand ho provato la affumicata, ma i ricordi sono vaghi; a casa mi sono invece portato questa "cattiva" barley wine. Orbene: impressione generale più che positiva, sopresa dal profondo sud andaluso con una birra di certo anomala se pensata in una giornata estiva a 50 gradi. sinceramente più che barley, la vedo come una strong ale di influenza belga, con una speziatura quasi da special christmas. buoni profumi, piutosto vari, e in bocca mantiene le aspettative con una altrettanta complessità, fra malto, note dolci, tostato e speziato finale. forse un po’ scarica al palato dove rimane un po’ piatta.
