Bottle. This was a really disspointing bitter that was thin and boring. Nothing better than the macro bitters.

Pringao_Toribi (179) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
A bitter wich flavour resembles more to a brown ale, but with a strong astringent that claims its true origin.

janubio (364) - SPAIN - SEP 17, 2013
500 ml. bottle. Red brown colour, with an off white head that does not last for too long. Smell of caramel, dark fruits and some unpleasant, like rotten fruits or something like that. A bit watery in the palate, with lime notes on it. Taste of caramel, dark fruits, liquorice. Not bad, but nothing really appealing.

Clear copper brown ale with a small head. Has a sweet toffee-like aroma and similar sweet flavours in an ale which feels pleasant and smooth in the palate.
