FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Simple sweet grainy aroma, a touch of husks. Light brown, small beige head. Bigger grainy taste, lots of husks, plenty of wood, and some hazelnut. Finish bitter, plenty of nuttiness. Ends with a gentle tingle. Improves as it warms. Aroma was a bit stodgy, that’s the only down-side.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
ChainGangGuy (4354) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, medium amber-toned body with a medium-small, but lasting, white head.

Smell: Hoppy notes of pine, grassiness, as well as fragrant, glistening orange and grapefruit atop the diversely bready, lightly caramelized maltiness.

Taste: Caramel and spiced brown sugar sweetening the fullish bready, toasty malts with the richness soon cut by the oily, scantly citric fruitiness of oily grapefruit and bitter orange. Also, a piney quality and some sustained grassiness. Moderate bitterness. Faint toasted almond on the back half as the beer warms a tad. A smattering of light esters. Herbal and citrus flavors linger beyond the long, dry, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. On the livelier side of medium carbonation. A little perceived oiliness in the mouthfeel.

Overall: A good, hoppy brew from Spain, no less.

javiercrasher (160) - Granada, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2014
Cobriza con una buena capa de espuma color hueso, de burbuja pequeña y buena retención. Aromas florales. Cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. En boca entra un poco acaramelada pero la amargor del lúpulo lo invade todo. Final seco y regusto amargo prolongado. Un cervezón!
