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

330ml bottle purchased at Cervantes bar in Ourense, Spain for 2.00euro. Not bad.

Lore (1900) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 30, 2016
perfect appearance of dark golden colour and large, long lasting, creamy, slightly yellowish head; aroma and taste of...well, in fact, a cheap lager: cardboard, metallic notes, some grains and grassy-vegetable notes, maybe some butter, too...based on its appearance I expected much more...

Beardbeerman (303) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2016
Pours a clear amber topped by a coarse fluffy white head showing good retention and lacing properties. Subtle macro-carbonation. The nose is sweet roasted malts and faint herbal hops. Some nice nutiness in the nose, like almond butter. The taste is sweet and nutty with the roasted malts at the center stage. No real hoppy features in the taste, but I did get some herbal flavors off the lingering finish. Interesting oiliness through that medium body. Well crafted. Cheers!

Dentro de las industriales es una buena cerveza. Toques maltosos, color ámbar, sin referencias a lúpulos pero de buen sabor.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn! Pours a nice amber color with very little head. Malt aroma, no real hop aroma or taste to speak of. A good brew.

DraftDodger (844) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2016
Los Cristianos, Tenerife 21/3 2016. 33 cl bottle from small supermarket. Label with a lot of text in Spanish about what a "Reserva Especial" is all about. Pours clear amber with small white head. Settles as very thin almost transparent layer of foam. Aroma of malts with a touch of vanilla and a little alcohol. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is sweet with a little acidic fruity sourness. Rather pleasant sweetish aftertaste with a little vanilla and oak. Nice Amber beer even through very much on the sweet side.

Cerveza con cuerpo medio. Un sabor suave pero peculiar y que le da un punto que la diferencia de otras. Fresca. Se bebe bien. Buena.

Pours clear golden with persistent white head. Aroma is malty, light herbal. Taste is light malty, metallic, light alcohol. Light-medium body, fizzy carbonation. This tastes slightly better than a macro, but far from a vienna lager.
