This is awesome. The wheat, oat and rye build the most magnificent body. Sharp medium sweetness that is well balanced but not overtaken by the medium bitterness, some lingering fruitiness in the finish, hops have faded a bit on this bottle but really a great complex malt backing! This is totally delicious with a nice slight alcohol kick. Distinctly Urbain and good.

Bit gusher. Pale golden, white foam. Herbal citric aroma. Medium body, average carbonation, citric herbal character with a good clean yeasty hint. I prefer ignis et flamma.

Excalibur123 (107) - Soria, SPAIN - JUN 20, 2014
Color ámbar claro, buena cabeza de espuma que permanece en la copa; en nariz aromas no muy marcados a lúpulo y frutales, melocotón y mango ; entrada suave y refrescante con una ligera acidez y amargor muy moderado para tratarse de una Ipa, cuerpo y carbónico medio con un pos gusto ligeramente amargo pero muy agradable.

Aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, candy, some hops. Flavour is malty, yeasty, sweetish. This is not your regular IPA, it’s very much on the malty side.
