doradobotella (94) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: De un tono ámbar coronado por una capa de espuma blanca, no muy duradera. Aroma: Bastante intenso a frutas tropicales, con notas que recuerdan a pino y resina. Sabor: De amargor moderado, agradable y muy frutal; es realmente refrescante.

Hazy deep red - amber beer, small bubbly pale cream coloured head. Palate is crisp and a little dry. Smooth malt base, touch of creamy sweetness. Light tangy start to the hops. Nice pine, slightly spice and a trace of mint. Light touch of tangerine marmalade and a whisper of something tropical. Light finish, mild bitter linger. Super drinkable. Good job.

Amber beer with a thin head. The aroma is hoppy and bitter-sweet. The taste is initially very sweet, but the hop starts to come through after that and the distinct citra hops come in with it. The sweetness lingers with the hop in the finish, being both sweet around the mouth while remaining dry on the tongue. Very drinkable.

330ml bottle. Dark amber colour, foam white head leaving some lacing and aroma of caramel, fruity citrus. Taste is sweet malty, caramel, toffee with floral orange & pine hop and light earthy bitterness. Syrupy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry tangy finish. Quite OK.
