Interesante cruce entre estilos "rojos" con un algo de UK, mucho de IPA USA y un toquecillo como a roja belga. Distinta, muy perfumada y redonda. Cayeron dos botellas.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sainsburys, Watford. Exploded when opened and sadly half the contents ended up on the table/ floor. What was left poured a clear, deep amber, with a dense off white head. Aroma of berries, pine and burnt sugar. Resinous hop flavours, with some tinned fruit and grapefruit. Finish was caramel, aniseed and bitter spruce-like hops.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
At el Raval l de Andorra. Nice honey/copper color with cream beige head. Great balance with some hoppyness and bitterness but still very smooth and easy to drink. Great palate too, just bubbly enough but yet very soft.
A new favorite maybe?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the mondiale 2014. Amber pour, small off white head. Big cereal aroma, breads, slight roast and some nuts with a touch of herbal hops. The finish is lightly bitter, and quite malty, but the malts are light. Nothing is over powering,,its all quite subtle from the bready, lightly toasted malts to the herbacious, grassy hops. A great balance of subtle flavours.
