RBESG 2016 in Barcelona. Cask at the Garage. Amber colour. A standard English best bitter - which means not very bitter at all, rather malty in both aroma and flavour, actually. Smooth and nice enough to drink though,

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask in The Garage Brewpub, Barcelona with the RBESG guys on 9th July 2016. Really enjoyed this. Good, deep amber body, full off-white head. Light malts lead the way in both the nose and taste with a gentle fruitiness in the background: decent clean bitterness within the flavour and a joy to find: surrounded as it was by keg Citrus Golds and heavy Imp Stouts.

Had to pick this one given that I share a name with the brewer. It was a very decent dark bitter with earthy herbal hopping, a change of pace from the floral citrus stuff I’d been drinking up until that point. Would really shine on cask

1/2 Pint @ Fira de cervesa Sant Antoni. Pours golden with small white head. Both aroma and taste are a blend of lemon and orange along with pale malts. Bitter as a beer like this should be. Very little sweetness. Light body, good carbonation. Quite simple, but it’s something nice to start with before trying more serious stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A toasted and relatively hoppy golden ESB. Good beer.
How: Tap at Bar ANIMAL, Madrid.
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a persistent large off -white head.
In long: Nose is very toasted along with dry leafy hops with a strong spicy twist. In mouth the beer feels crispy, a medium body with an appropriate medium carbonation. Taste proposes crisp toasted cereals that are slightly caramelized, dried fruits skin and a hefty amount of leafy-wooden hops with a fun spicy twist. And I see here that this beer is brewed by a contract brewery called Steve Huxley and it is brewed at a brewery called George Wright, so I can only conclude that the British are not very good at naming inanimate things.
