from palma. clear yellow slightly orange, fluffy offwhite head. yeasty, malty, sour sockey aroma. not really very pleasant. Flavor is malty, caramelly, slightly nutty, practically no hops, a very malty brew. Also not very interesting.

Ambar, turbia. Muy escasa espuma. Aroma escaso. Suave en boca, algo aguada pero cremosa. Carbonatacion baja. En boca equilibrada entre dulce caramelo y lupulo frutal, lago de naranja y melocoton. Buena.

Drank from a bottle. Quite ok. There isnít that much taste but for that reason it works nicely with food.

On tap at La Buena Pinta, Madrid. Aroma: fresh, fruity, citrusy. Taste: again fruity, citrusy, drnkable, light. Beautiful head. Not too bad for amber ale (not my favorite style).

janubio (538) - SPAIN - NOV 6, 2014
Golden colour, small head that vanishes too soon, no lace. Smell is salty, smoked, maybe some hints of fruits and caramel. Light body, correct carbonation and watery palate. Thin palate. Taste has some hints of caramel and fruits too. I guess if you try hard (and knowing what it is about) you can say it pairs with spanish jam, Ií ve tasted it on its own and I canít find nothing special, being the second time Iíve tried it.

The Spanish have taken their passion for jamon to a new level, designing and naming a beer to complement a serving of Iberian ham. I've sampled this with and without the ham accompaniment, and this beer successfully stands alone and pairs well as recommended. From the bottle, this amber ale pours a light brown amber-accented color, not the most interesting but average. Smell is on the weaker side but is malty with caramel notes. The flavor is what struck me as most impressive, a rich warm toasty caramel maltiness that is exceedingly sabroso, very straightforward and not complex but enjoyable as it is. Some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Light bodied, but not watery or weak. Good subtle carbonation. Not a sophisticated brew but well done.

Light amber colour, light maltiness and some caramel, light bodied, not too exciting
