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.

GBZ59 (1211) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 17, 2012
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 (3644) - 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.

Beer5000 (5316) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2011
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden body with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is mild malty with some grassy/herbal hops. Flavor is refreshing bitter, mild malt and hint of citric fruit. Medium body. Kind of interesting beer, but not an IPA in my book. Not very bitter, but feels refreshing. A bit unusually hop flavor as well, something between grassy and light fruity. Pleasant aftertaste.

TAR (2526) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Lightly fogged golden. Ample white foam gradually collapses into a broken center and sustained collar. Plasticlike phenols line the subdued nose, along with straw, pear, honeycomb, sage, and a hint of children’s aspirin. Soft, lush carbonation. Light-bodied. Bottle-conditioned. Delicately tart and explosively airy with a pleasant phenolic snap. Dry on the palate with a ghostlike dusting of papery, straw-tinged malt. Clean and supremely quaffable, but consequently quite hollow with the exception of some lingering dough and sweetish honey residuals. Hops are floral and lightly herbaceous, though both the flavor and bitterness are virtually nonexistent, thus failing to contribute compensatory depth. Extremely mute yet nicely integrated finish is comprised of lilac and honeysuckle with lurking phenols and a dab of firm malt. Not a whole lot of character here, and it’s certainly hampered by the aforementioned hollowness. But it is quite clean and quaffable. I dearly love low-gravity beers, but at almost $6 for an 11.2 oz. bottle of this, I will never revisit.
