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.

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Sweet and somewhat grassy aroma with a touch of hops. Straw colored, fairly high carbonation, lasting white head. Nice malty sweetness balanced by hop bitterness and pleasant fruity esters...mainly citrus...from ale yeast. Malt lingers on finish with a touch of the hops. Mouthfeel is creamy, slight bite from hops, medium - medium high carbonation. Easy drinker that doesn’t require too much thought. Nothing that really stands out but a pleasant beer to quench the thirst on a sunny day or as a clean crisp pairing to a meal.

armando629 (2413) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 19, 2010
0,33 l bottle as a gift from Spain.
The beer has a cloudy orange-golden appearance with a good-looking foamy white head that diminshes to a delicious lacing one. Bready malt aroma with a strong and powerful herbal hop character. Medium body, malt base, some sourish yeast..and the hop. Strong, grassy hop , some grapfruit and citrusses. Powerful herbal hop character with a minimal honey-sweetness in the finish. The hop is to harsh, to straw-like, it could be a little bit easier or most rounded.

popery (1434) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Bottle, home. This is an odd one. If I had tried this beer blind, I would have called it a pilsner with more than normal hopping and a mix of hops. The beer is pale yellow with an energetic, rocky white head. The aroma is mostly yeast with a touch of herbaceous hops. The flavor is quite dry. Notes of lemons and grass dominate the palate with some light yeastiness. There’s definitely an odd mix of hops present but not nearly enough, or, perhaps, the trip from Spain isn’t doing them justice. It has a slightly sour malt lager flavor. Feel is fizzy and a bit odd. The whole package is mediocre, particularly given the import price. It’s fun to try beer from a Spanish craft brewer, but I’d recommend skipping this one.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Pours hazy sandy gold with white head. The aroma is mild with light notes of spice, floral and acidic smelling citrus hops along with a sugary sweetness off in the background. The taste begins with a flash of sharp lemon like acidity. It then becomes more and more citrus tangelo – like as malt and caramel malt sweetness begin to murmur to the surface. It stays somewhat acidic from front to back with a sense of tartness on occasion.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Bottle from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours a rather hazy gold with a finely bubbled white head. Floral/fruit hop aroma. Near medium body with coarsely frothy carbonation. Flavor is floral/fruity. It’s bitter, but not strongly so. Some pilsners are as bitter. But it is a good tasting beer, and it’s good to see craft beer in Spain.

beernbourbon (1313) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle from WLV. Pour is cloudy golden color with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is dry hop, champagne, citrus fruits, grass, lemon, and a light cookie malt backbone. Flavor is surprisingly clean up front. A long high-riding metallic/ citrus flavor dominates early. That declines into and earthy bready flavor and the beer culminates with a malty marzen-like finish. Interesting and very very easy to drink. The palate on this beer is different than any I have tasted and it makes it mighty smooth.

Aquilo (555) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Very pale orange/blond with a thick pillowy head. Fruity and floral aroma. Snappy hop bitterness with some floral sweetness in the finish. Smooth on the palate, but a bit astringent. Very good overall.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Sampled on 11/20/2009. This IPA pours a cloudy yellow gold color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty, yeasty, and sweet with a touch of hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy. Not so sure that this is an IPA. It tastes more like a hoppy wit. Interesting though. Nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
