1906 Reserva Especial has a thin, white, soapy head, a hazy, orange-golden appearance, lots of little orange chunks floating about, some streaming bubbles, and a decent amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is bold and rich. One picks up medium-roasted barley malt, some alcohol sweetness, and brown bread. Taste is of all those, plus some bread crust, a slight hop bitterness, and even a fruitiness (figs?). Mouthfeel is medium, and 1906 Reserva Especial finishes mostly dry, fairly refreshing, bold, and strong. This is more of a sipper, really. Overall, I think it’s a really delicious beer. RJT

berkshirejohn (4196) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
33cl bottle from Waitrose. Golden amber with medium carbonation and an immediately disappearing white head; the aroma has some sweet malts and grassy hops; the taste is sweet and cloying with some burnt caramel; there’s a reasonably crisp finish, with the alcohol coming through to provide lots of warmth.

Quite decent, for my palate , for a "lager", the sweet malt gives it a full flavour, very drinkable .

Bottle from Waitrose. Amber. Minimal, white head. Brown sugar. Molasses, maybe. Taste is thick sweetness, with a burnt bitterness. Pretty heavy going, although this is probably down to this not being my favourite style, in the first place.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
330ml Bottle: poured into a ’Chimay’ chalice at home on 4th March 2014. Nice old gold colour to the clear body with a white head that fell away to a wisp and collar fairly swiftly. Malty feel throughout the brew, in all aspects, the nose being full of molasses type smells with very little else to find. The taste is also leaning heavily towards a semi-sweet maltiness with next to no bitterness until the finish which has a weak hop dryness which helps to balance out the malts sweetness a little. I like the sweeter brews so this suited my taste buds, others will find it too sweet for the style and unbalanced because of that.

Horrible tasting beer. This was absolutely off putting tastes of stale malts and leaves a bad taste in mouth.

kidmartinek (3299) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Rich amber/caramel color. Thin white head. This beer doesn’t dissapoint for a lager. Its aroma is spicy and.hoppy white being quite bitter. The flavor’s bitterness overshadows the malt. A strong lagerbeer that is more enjoyable than you’d expect.

330 ml slimline can, as 1906 Año Reserva Especial, produced in Spain for Hijos de Rivera. www.club1906.es . ABV is 6.5%. Ingredients include maize. Golden (nearly deep golden) colour, moderate white head. Fairly decent aroma of grassy hops. The flavour is "dusty", bland and boring, but not offensive.
