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.

33 cl. bottle. Pours a gusher, with rapidly collapsing white head, with some lacing, over a cloudy, particle laden, yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is light grass and herbal hops...taste is light malts, cereal, dusty tones with a light bitter finish....mouth feel is light, carbonation high (obviously). Not particularly interesting and the hops may have died, as they are barely there. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

AmEricanbrew (6463) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Clear yellow color/ lasting white head. Big grassy, spicy, skunk cabbage aromas. frothy, expansive mouthfeel. Nice dusty pale malt, dry earthy hop flavors with a crisp bitter finish--good.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Hazy yellow pour topped by a massive rocky white head. The nose is zesty and quite aromatic. Spicy and lightly earthy/dusty characer. The flavour is a little bit tart with a bit of honey. There is definitely some odd sort of infected character. Some definite crackery malt flavour - but it’s definitely seen fresher days. It start out okay but it quickly fades into a fairly watery, oxidized mess. I’d have loved to see it fresher.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle @ home. Hazy light yellow/orange appearance with a white head, almost exactly like a Belgian Witbier. Sweet yeasty and mildly hoppy aroma. Sour, slightly yeasty,

Brother brought it back from Spain, and alas that is a problem, as the green bottle created a somewhat skunked brew. In any case, I think that it is possible to see past the skunkiness and see what this beer would have been like in its original manifestation. Pours a white head over a cloudy yellow body. Aroma, past the skunk, is very fruity, though not citrusy and with a touch of hops. Really slight bitterness. A little watery perhaps. Definitely not an American IPA, but it does make me wish I could have tried it in its unadulterated form. Oh well. Its their fault they use those idiotic green bottles.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours light orange yellow, completely hazed, some chunks, thick creamy white head. Aroma of very mild floral and grassy hops. Taste is light sweetness, some lemon, floral hops, grass. Actually pretty good beer, just not if you compare it to most IPA’s. If I didn’t know, I might say this is a Pils, drinks like one. Bready malts, mild banana sweetness, pretty nice.

33cl bottle. Medium off-white head that mostly dissipates atop murky light ice tea body. Aroma is medium sweet, straw, orange, some biscuit. Taste is medium sweet, lime/orange. Soft light-medium body, fairly drinkable.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 21, 2010
In the 0.5L green bottle from a little shop off of Avinuda de Roma. A thick cake of white yeast stirs up to make for a hefeweizen-looking cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Smells like pears and cheese. Not any traditional hop aromas. The flavor is well hopped with a solid drying finish of woody, not citrus hopiness. This is a delightful break from all those Cataluna pale lagers.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - SEP 2, 2010
UPDATED: APR 6, 2011 33cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours a hazy pale yellow liquid with some sediments (as it is not filtered) and a medium bubbly white head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving no lacing. The nose is grassy, with a hint of malt. Spices and a general sweetness, it mainly has a strong hoppy aroma (citron, apricot). Flavour is mainly hops, with some straw, a little apricot and citron; it finishes dryish, with a very bitter and medium sweet aftertaste. One of the best choices from CCM, the most extended company of Catalan artisan beer. A good one to try; very natural flavour. Presentation (bottle and crown cap) is OK.
