MrHangover (2142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2013
Cask @ La Cerveteca. Pours a clear amber beer with a huge bubbly white head on top. Aroma has thin touches of malts and not very much else. Flavour is overall quite bitter and has some piney notes to it. Bitterness kinda overwhelms the palate, but what’s in a name?

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2013
On tap at La Bona Pinta in Barcelona. Pours a hazed burnt orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready, somewhat sticky and sweet caramels with some DMS, a slight toast, and a light grassy note. Flavor is similar. Papery, bready, somewhat sweet caramel malts with a light toast and a good amount of grass throughout. No DMS on the flavor, but more of an oxidized taste. Finishes dry and fairly bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, this was an ESB with some nice things going on, but the aroma had too much DMS and the flavor was slightly oxidized. Nonetheless, it wasn’t terrible, but perhaps some better packaging options are available.

juanenka (242) - valladolid, SPAIN - JAN 30, 2013
Buena imagen limpia y espuma persistente. Aroma lupulado y hierbas. En sabor más que una bitter es una pale ale con buena dosis de lúpulo, cítrica y seca.

EmNectar (43) - Mutriku/Rio Gallegos, - NOV 24, 2012
Cansina, el filtrado no le sienta bien, al igual que otras. Olor a chicle y a jarabe, no me gusto. Me gusta el estilo, pero esta no, decepcionante.
