0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
In short: A boozy, sweet, lifeless, sticky golden ale. Brutally bad.
How: Bottle 330ml at 2D2Dspuma, Barcelona.
The look: Cloudy golden - copper body topped by a tiny beige ring of foam.
In long: Nose is strong alcohol fumes (fusel), burnt oranges, toffee candy. In mouth the beer is pretty much lifeless, a thick sticky juicy mixture. Taste is alcohol burn, caramel sweetness, resinous hop bitterness. Unpalatable, I drank a few sips, enough for a rating, left my full glass on the table, 5 Euros down the drain. Sure I can delete my ratings of shitty beers like this one, I can see the button right there on the beer page, but does ratebeer offers a way to delete the memory of drinking it?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color ambar. Espuma abundante, persistente de color beige. Aroma muy agradable a lúpulo. En boca, pensaba que iba a ser bastante más amarga pero me resultó muy equilibrada (mejor). Los 11 grados están perfectamente camuflados.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lupulada y amarga de pelotas, se nota el alcohol en boca , con equilibrio de malta y punto dulce que viene después, retrogusto combinado amargo y dulce, espuma duradera, aroma a lavanda, cítrico y pan, el único defecto es que es demasiado azucarada

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber color, sediment present. Big head, medium persistence, brown color. Aroma is intense: caramel, fruits, pine and orange. Medium body, creamy and nicely alcoholic mouthfeel. Dry finish. Taste is very well balanced: peach, orange. Nicely bitter, not overwhelming. A good one from Spain.

Botella. Hazy golden colour. Fruity herbal hoppy sweet aroma. Flavour is sweet and herbally hoppy, fruity and some citrus. Alcohol is present indeed. Good bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy, opaque, murky amberish with an off-white head. Heavy, thick, greasy hop aroma - herbal rather than citrusy or fresh. Solid body, a thick fruitiness, sugary, again this herbal hoppiness leading to a massive bitterness. Rough, unpleasant and messy - but boozy alright. 140113

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cL bottle. Pours murky brown with a small off white head. Aroma is yeasty mouldy and grapefruity. Solid hops, yeasty, alcohol and bone dry. Phenolic and light chemical. Bone dry and caramelish toasted malty finish, light reappearing chemical note. Too much and not with cleanness or balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle. It’s as good as clear at first but later on it gets quite cloudy. Deep nutty-amber in color and it has a nice medium sized somewhat lacing beige top. It’s really peachy and fruity on the nose. Lot’s of sticky thick caramel sweetness with loads of fruity tropical and concentrated dried fruits. Not bad at all. Oh my this is one heavy monster! Like sipping on honey in the extreme thick and chewy texture and the carbonation level is not to extreme, yet present, small bubbly and prickling. Loads of malty caramel sweetness with a resinous, almost branch- and zesty like bitterness. Nuts also present in here. It’s definitely warming this, but it’s surprisingly well masked considering it has a alcohol percent of 11. A lingering pine-bitterness finishes this off. Yeah, it’s a monster I tell ya. A Monster! 15.11.2012
