light amber, nice head. Nose is sweel, malty. Body light but something is there. Carbon medium, taste sweet. No so bad, palate plays with hops tones and bitter aftertaste. C(reserva especial)@H

Cimbasso (86) - - AUG 24, 2014
Purchased in Waitrose in a brown 33cl bottle as Hijos de Rivera Reserva Especial, with extra branding indicating the award of a Medalla de Oro in the Monde Selection 2013. It has a lovely, clear copper colour and a white head. Lovely appearance. The aroma is nor bad - malt, grassy hops, hints of damson plums, a little caramel. However, the taste a little disappointing. Excessively sweet caramels, and hardly any hop taste. Aftertaste is all caramel. Not to my taste at all. This beer would not have won a gold medal in Muswell Hill. Maize is listed amongst the ingredients and the strength is 6.5% ABV.

La especial de Estrella Galicia es un cervezote a tener en cuenta. Tiene muy buen cuerpo.

La mejor cerveza española en el mercado y que no es una artesanal. Recomendable tomarla bastante fria

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a strong whitish head. The aroma is malty with some roastedness, the flavour is bitter with malty and caramel notes. Overall a nice malty and bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
