Estil cerveser: ÍBER ALE. Cervesa rossa d’alta fermentació adaptada a l’estil del nostre país. Amb aquesta cervesa recuperem l’alta fermentació tradicional dels nostres avantpassats ibers. La recepta incorpora maltes i llúpols emprats en l’elaboració de les cerveses de gran consum d’estil Pilsen (de baixa fermentació), o de la família de les Lager.

Nota de tast: El gust dolç de la malta pilsen s’equilibra amb l’amargor del llúpol i és ideal per fer passar la set. Temperatura de consum entre 4º i 8ºC: a una temperatura baixa tenim els sabors i l’amargor del llúpul clarament definits i, a més, resulta molt refrescant. La degustació òptima, però, en una cervesa Ale s’aconsegueix per sobre dels 7ºC, quan afloren les textures i sabors que produeix la fermentació del llevat Ale.

Ingredients de la recepta: Aigua del Montseny. Maltes: pilsen, de blat i caramalt. Flor dels llúpols: cascade, fuggles, nugget, target i celeia. Llevat.
Formerly Montseny Lupulus.

Gyllengul med vitt skum. Doft av örter och hö. En okej bitterhet men ingen större kropp

MadRobin (2683) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Poured from 330 ml bottle at Jaleo in downtown Washington, DC. Foggy, translucent bright orange amber with 3-finger pale yellow head and fair lacing. The beer clears and brightens as it warms. Faint, barely perceptible aroma of light malt and mild yeast with maybe a mere touch of lemon. Taste of bitter, earthy floral hops, citrus and a touch of some type of dry malt. Not unpleasant, but with little depth and nothing to balance out the up-front bitterness. Medium body and high carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. A lovely beer to look at, but falls short on flavor and especially aroma. After writing this review, I checked other reviews. Apparently, there is quite a bit of variation in this beer from bottle to bottle or tap to tap--or at least in reviewers perceptions. One constant though is that there seems to be wide agreement that this is one strange IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap during beer week,poured a boring looking orange color. Notes were mostly dull and grainy, slightly sour, almost hoppy, malty, not great.

Botella de 330ml. Vaso de Pinta. Saboreada en oct´11. Color dorado pálido y apariencia turbia. La espuma túpida y marfileña crea una corona persistente y algodonosa con increíbles collares y copos en las paredes. Suave entrada seguida por un ascendente sabor de esteres y cítricos. Paladar de recio amargor. Cuerpo lígero y carbonatación media. Final amargo y áspero. Fácil asimilación. Una refrescante cerveza descubierta en el verano del 2009 que se ha convertido para mi en un clásico en días calurosos. 330ml bottle. Pint glass. Enjoyed on oct´11. Pale gold in color, foggy appearance. Dense, off-white in color, froth creates a lasting rocky head with incredible lacing collars, spots & flakes on sides. Smooth upfront followed by increasing estery citric flavor. Earthy bitter mouthfeel. Light body, medium carbonation. Rough bitter finish. Slightly astringent & subtle malt. Easy drinkability. A refreshing beer met in 2009 Summer has become a classic drink to me in summer days.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - FEB 7, 2012
interesting aroma, very lemony with bright crisp biscuity malt. pours a hazy straw with big fizzy quickly-receding head. flavor is tart in front and then bland. light and crisp and overcarbed. this is not an ipa by any stretch. lightly hopped saison maybe. not bad, but seriously, there is almost no bitterness. first craft spanish beer i’ve seen, but jeez, what are they doing over there?

thegreenrooster (3848) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Pour is a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is dry cracker malts with some hoppyness. Flavor is a ok hop to start then comes some pils like malt and finishes dry and bland. Little to no aftertaste. Just ok and better than the rest I’ve had from this brewer.
