On tap at the brewery. Great hop character. Aromas of caramel and grass. Taste has a sweet start, with sour notes, and bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange and cloudy.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 17, 2012
De barril a la Cervesera Artesana. Color ataronjat fosc amb tons rojos i amarronats, finalitzant amb una corona blanca cremosa. Aroma llúpolat i agradable igual que el sabor, força intens i sec, fins i tot amb toc picant. No hi ha notes de pi ni dolces, però tot i això té una gran personalitat. Sorprenent, molt satisfet amb aquesta cervesa. La formula va cambiant a temporades, es possible que la gent tingui diferents percepcions degut a això.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2006
Draught at the brewpub, sold as Tostada
Hazy golden color. Light malt aroma. Quite fresh taste: imperfect version of a fruity Golden Ale from England; medium malt, but nice hops.

BeerSlacker (34) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2008
Reddish, copper hue and hazy. Nicely served in English pint glass - good head retention. Hop nose - quite floral. Thin malt body. Nice bitterness, big hop flavour. Overall, a decent effort, if not spectacular for the style.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2009
Tap @ La Cervesera Artesana, Barcelona.
Pours muddy pale amber with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Soft sweetish malty aroma, light fruity hoppy, caramel, light citric and grassy. Highish prickly carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is sweetish malty, fine fruity hops, grapefruit, floral and citric. Okay dryness in the finish.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 12, 2012
20/11 On tap at the brewpub, as Torrada, which in Catalan means toasted (tostada in Spanish). It poured hazy golden body with smaller head. Yeasty and a bit sourish herbal and citrus hop aroma (Cascade I guess). Flavor was lightly bitter, citrus hops with some toasted malts, but less pronounced than expected. Typical sourish brewpub note. Medium in body with long bitter hop finish showing some acidity as well. Nice and effective APA or lighter IPA.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Better in taste, very strong the hopy aroma, the flavor is a little biter, but is nice, still being a little soft. It is called in the bar "Tostada". And it is available.
Earlier Rating: 12/24/2005 Total Score: 3.2
God, nice natural flavor, but it was too flavorless, the name in the bar is "Rubia", not I.P.A., so, I do not know.

Tap@Brewpub. Dark yellow, off-white head, good lace. Sweetish, bitter, nice hops. Nothing extreme, nothing special. Drinkable.
