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

smells mildly coffeeish, drank straight from the bottle but its gold we know that, taste is actually quite smooth with a lingering refreshing wateryness, does that make sense? been a heavy weekend!

It’s the best of Hijos de Rivera’s beers. More tasty than Estrella Galicia. My favourite spanish industrial lagers.

rondphoto (2371) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 9, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a full beige head cover, thin streaks of lace. Aroma of malt and maybe a little corn(?). Taste is malt that grows sweeter as it enters the palate, then adding mild floral hops on the swallow, both sides glide through a short finish. Reasonably good.

didierlewallon (163) - ponferrada, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2014
Cerveza de color ámbar con una cabeza de color blanca. Aroma a malta tostada, caramelos y lúpulos. Sabor dulce, a caramelo y notas de hierbas. Cerveza normal, nada mas que decir.

Drake (9264) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2014
11.2 ounce bottle from Beer Run, Reserva Especial label, opened 11/5/14. Pours a clear pale amber with a large foamy white head. Fair head retention. Skunky aroma with notes of nuts and caramel. The taste is caramel, cherries, skunky finish. Thin bodied. Not much here.

0,33l Flasche. Goldbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Kaum Aroma. Schmeckt erst bitter, herb. Zum Schluß kommt ein Caramel Geschmack hinzu.

EddyBeer1 (949) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2014
Ambrée claire, effervescence moyenne-légère, quasi aucune bulle, col blanc fin disparaît rapidement. Principalement maltée, un peu de caramel, petite amertume, légèrement aqueuse. D’une banalité sans nom.

Holmen1 (2866) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2014
0,33 flaske på La Gran Taberna i Granada (som 1906 Reserva Especial): flott maltkropp med mye kjaramellsødme. Lett bitterhet, kanskje litt i ubalanse. Men den smakte godt i muntert selskap på denne kjempekoselige tapasbaren.

GuideDogSaint (513) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 4, 2014
330ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Metallic malty aroma. Sweet alcoholic finish. Ok.

Fine body and more hop bitterness than expected. A malt forward, slightly sweet, brew.
