COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LUG is an ordinary bitter ale, but there is nothing ordinary about this bitter ale. Named for the Celt-Iberiangod who was purported to be both warrior and healer, At 3.5 ABV LUG is light enough to drink all daylong but presents a satisfying hop backbone that does not skimp on flavor. The aroma greats the nose with a strong bouquet of hop bitterness full of citric fruit and floral aromas that continue to bloom on the palate. The bubble is lively and gives rise to a full and persistent white foam head. Brewmasters Àngel Torné Tarragó and Xavi Carim Correcher have crafted a 3.5 ABV ordinary bitter ale with …..The result is an authentic bitter ale …….that is a tasty all day drinking companion or a terrific accompaniment to mature cheeses and meats. The bitterness cleans the palate exquisitely after each sip, opening the way to renewed gourmandizing. Available in 33cl and 75cl bottles and key kegs. L’Anjub LUG – extra-ordinary bitter ale

33cl bottle thanks to Lowenbrau. Light golden color with large head. Carbonation is medium to high. Aroma is quite hoppy but there’s some barley and spices in here. Taste is quite bitter. It’s a nice bitter!

Ampolla de 33cl, assaborida a Homo Sibaris en got tipus Shaker adaptat. Presenta color daurat, inicialment amb transparències però que es va enterbolint, coronada per una capa d’escuma blanca abundant. L’aroma és de llimona molt marcat, efecte que produeix la combinació de llevat y llúpol. En boca la malta ho equilibra fins a cert grau, la sensació que dóna no és de cervesa Bitter no obstant, sino més aviat de cervesa llupolosa belga. S’hi detecta també un lleu toc afruitat. El punt àcid del paladar és el just, per altra banda la sensació també és seca. Cos mig, carbonatació perfecte. Una cervesa que hauria d’agradar froça als qui aprecien les Belgues amb llúpol, com és el meu cas. Molt bona en aquest sentit, i poca quantitat d’alcohol!

Aroma hoppy with floral tones and a little clove. Smooth light taste with a hint of cinnamon that starts moderately bitter and builds gradually to a huge bitterness hit.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2013
The first beer perk of working for a Spanish company - a Spanish beer tasting that I wasn’t invited to participate in. Anyways, I’ll gladly lap up the leftovers. Started with the LUG. A nice spicy flavor with a floral hop back ground but lots of malts prominent up front and the hops on the finish. Which is a great little balance. The beer is a little bitter, but they know that and were going for that.

Bottled. Golden colour with a nice white head with good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma is hoppy with citrus notes. Flavor has a high bitterness with a long duration. Dry final.

heavy (2144) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 16, 2012
29/11 0.33 l bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. It poured hazy amber body with medium sized head. Pleasant hop aroma was ruined by cornflakes and vegetables, typical low alcohol things. Flavor was lightly sweet, unpleasant notes were less felt but still present, while hop bitterness was stronger now, somehow managing to save the disaster. Thin body, shorter bitterish herbal finish. Although ruined by aroma, it was not really a bad beer, I see some Spanish micros are trying to make pleasant low alcohol, some obliviously did it very well, so there is no need for more of such useless brews.
