GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - AUG 14, 2011
Botella de 500ml servida en Vaso de Pinta. Saboreada en Jun´11 Brota con color cobrizo claro. Espuma beige amarillenta, copiosa y densa con bastante buena retención y bonito encaje en las paredes. Aroma malteado con matices de madera y chocolate subyacente. Trazos de aroma a pan. Inicio de agradable y dulce amargor con notas de bayas y recuerdos de platano en boca. Oleosa y mantecosa. Sorprendente cuerpo intenso para tan poco ABV y carbonatación media. Lígero picor alcoholico. Los esteres parecen dominar el sabor pero, finalmente, el lúpulo gana la partida con un amargor envolvente.El retrogusto es de sutil chocolate. Muy buena asimilación y sensación muy refrescante.Excelente lupulización combinando amargor y aroma en adecuado equilibrio.500ml bottle served into a Pint glass.Enjoyed on Jun´11.Pours light copper in color.Yellowish beige froth, copious & dense.Fairly well retention & nice lacing left on sides.Malty aroma, hints of wood & chocolate underneath.Slightly bready hues,too.Starts with a gentle & sweet bitterness, notes of berries & mildy banana.Kind oily & viscosity sensation. A surprising full body unexpected in a medium ABV beer.Medium-low carbonation.Light scratchy alcohol hues.Esters look like dominating but finally hops win the match leaving an all-around bitterness. Subtle chocolate aftertaste.Very good drinkability & refreshing sensation.Excelent hoppy profile combining bitterness & aroma in a correct balance.

Draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Looks flat, not very good lightning but looks reddish caramel brown oily with only some white bubbles for a head. Nose carries some funk, touch sour & barnyard, cacao, touch cheese,… Taste is sweet, funky with some earthly cheese, barnyard, sweet herbs, caramel and touch burned brown sugar, some light grass & touch floral bitterness in the back, earthly, herbal. Flat. Completely unintentional, nice barnyard, light sour from Spain. Similar to their Runa, I once tried but better. A beautiful failure.

TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Crimson with rusty highlights. Pasty dirty-white head exhibits good retention. Potently phenolic and estery nose comprised of dried strawberry, pecan skin, leather, breadcrust, black licorice, apricot, butter toffee, plum jam, dried leaves. Heavenly saliva-inudcing dusty yeast character. Soft, natural carbonation. Upfront burst of plasticlike phenols is curtailed by remarkably clean, lush and dextrinous British malt character. Robust breadcrust edginess accentuates the firm pale malt-derived cookielike snap which contrasts with the bouncier vanilla and toffee-glazed-nut base. Wonderfully deep, fat, and creamy malt. Peppery hops lend subtle appetizing acids along with a rustic twinge of autumn leaves and soft tealike flavors. Ripe red plum flesh and dried leather contribute more lift and drinkability while hops steadily tease with a gently coarse earthy bitterness. Finishes flawlessly balanced and cleanly attenuated with a sassafras root dryness kissed with succulent esters and prolonged beefy malt. A deceptively simple beer, which means most folks here likely won’t give it a second glance. Which is unfortunate considering how rare it is to find these foundational styles so well-balanced, devoid of flaw, and endlessly drinkable. But hats off to Masia Agullons for doing just that.

Lowenbrau (4727) - Asturias, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2014
500ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 16-05-2014.
In short: a fruity pleasant pale ale.
Pours murky deep golden, with really frothy off white head, rocky one. Long head retention, good lacing. Fruity, citrusy aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is smooth, fruity, refreshing. Very enjoyable.
