Cerveja Letra E Belgian Dark 2.7
On tap. Almost clear reddish amber colour with a thin head. Poor retention. Caramel, fruity, spicy and some sourness on the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet with some yeast and tart notes. Overall, drinkable but odd beer.

Cerveja Letra Editions On Oak - Oporto Barrel Aged Dark Ale 4.1
Cloudy mahogany. Sparse persisting head. Aroma intensity 4.5 out of 5. A mix of quince and ripe red fruit in the nose, plus some notes of pear. Very complex in the mouth, with a few layers, starting with a jeropiga like sensation, going through a bit of wood, hazelnut and finishing in a bitter-sweet very fruity Porto. Long finish. Full body and spot on carbonation

Cerveja Letra / Bayura Baylet 4.3
Draught at BierCab, Barcelona. Fantastic smell of tropical hops. Taste reveals the rye, which in the aftertaste turns into a strong taste of pepper and perhaps even tiny amounts of liquorice. Nice balance between malt and hops, smooth bitterness, and somewhat present alcohol. One of the absolutely best IPAs I’ve had this year.

Cerveja Letra F India Pale Ale 3.3
Explosión al abrir la botella (!). Exagerada espuma que se sale de la copa, muy duradera. Aroma lupulado frutal. En boca entra ligera. Muy amarga de inicio evolucionando a un tono mas dulce malteado y frutal donde destaca la uva claramente. El final vuelve a ser bien amargo con mezcla de todo ello. Diferente a la mayoría. Merece ser probada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy amber. Massive head, keeps on growing for a while. Nicely bitter, the foam. Initially not that hoppy in the nose. Then it comes alive, some citrus notes, a bit of bread, butter (soft), flowers. Medium bitter. Resembles a bit a strong Belgium ale.

Cerveja Letra D Red Ale 3.7
It pours indeed red: amber red, or reddish orange, rather. Head is tan and thick as thick can be. Aroma is not so much like a red ale; instead, I’d say it smells like an IPA: tropical fruit, bitter herbs, honey. Taste is fizzy, fresh and incredibly bitter. Seems all the hops went down the same batch.

Cerveja Letra / Bayura Baylet 3.7
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 21B / 22A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: hop aroma with tropical fruit notes (mango, grapefruit), and some pine and resin. Mild sweet malty background. APPEARANCE: ambar color and hazy with some material in suspension. Average ivory head and creamy, with good retention and lacing. TASTE: similiar to the aroma (mango, grapefruit, pine) with a mild sweet malty background. high bitterness that lasts beyond an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium body with moderate carbonation, with a velvety and slight powdery texture from the rye. very faint alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a very nice imperial rye IPA, with the balance tilting towrds the hops. recommended.
