Comments: I wonder if I drank the same beers than my colleagues. On my visit, they had two beers in special 750mL bottles and mine was called RIserva Speciale (forgot the other), but felt much better than the low ratings here. An extremely bready beer with generous yeastiness, kinda doughy and a wide range of fruitiness kept at bay by a wall of floral, woodsy hops.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 18, 2007
This was a bit disappointing. Sticky and sweet, especially at the end, this beer does little other than add a bit of sugary malt to its normal Red. Skip, but you probably wont have the choice -- its rarely available.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Draught at the brewpub
Beautiful red-amber color. Too simple aroma, alcoholic. A bit oily, very bitter, poor malt qualities and too much alcoholic. Almost disgusting. Raw. Really homebrewing style.
