slowrunner77 (11626) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
somehow it ended up on the shelf in Reno. a hoppy blonde lager/pilsner style beer. not bad. didn’t know what to expect from a spanish "iberian" ale. pleasant, earthy, sweet and light. probably a one timer."

Bottle from Metcat Barceloneta. Hoppy aroma. Pours a clean light APA, with a thick white head. Tastes a little watery / soapy though.

Bottle. Hazy cornflower yellow, lively white head. Aroma and flavour have a sour tang that clearly marks an infection, but somehow I’m certain this beer is better for it. There really isn’t much to describe except for crackery underlying pale malts. I actually finished the whole thing, but I’m certain this bottle was off. As it is, a nice light bodied sour ale, even if it is not meant to be so.

Foxbush (1974) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
11.2 oz bottle The ale poured a cloudy orane like color. Nice whit famy head head. The aroma was very mild. Hard to tell if this was a pale ale or pilsner. The body was light and the carbonation was soft. I want to encourage the Spanish to keep trying. This was short of the mark.

jgb9348 (6096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Hazy golden coloured body with a white head and a bunch of bubbles rising from the sides and bottom of the glass. Aroma of honey, wheat, coriander seed, sugar and a touch of lemons - no hops in the smell. Medium-bodied; Light hoppiness up front with some malt, coriander seed, yeast and a touch of wheat tucked in the back. Aftertaste shows a hop bitterness, some light sweetness and a good clean refreshing citrus character. Overall, not an english pale by any means, more of a belgian ale to me, but a refreshing taste - a new brewery and a style that you don’t typically see much in the land of everything should be bigger and stronger. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 04-September-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 10-October-2010.

Pours clear golden with a white head that doesn’t last long. The aroma has lightly toasted pale malt, some spicy hops and a bit of plastic. The body is fairly light and crisp with some graininess to the texture and flowing sharp carbonation. The taste has pale malt that’s on the husky side with quite a bit of spicy clean hops and some citrus (the citrus doesn’t seem to be from hops). The finish is spicy, crisp and clean. Nice beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Bottle. Gusher! Pours a clear odd looking pee-yellow color with a tall thin big sticky airy white foamy gusher head. Aroma is sweet and juicy, lots of tropical fruits, lightly metallic, orange, pineapple, vanilla. Flavor is metallic and bright, juicy, weirdly sweet and medicinal, yellow cough-syrup finish. Corse fizzy carbonation, watery, bitter aftertaste.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Thanks to 17thfloor for sharing. Pours barely hazy light orange with a thick pillowy white head. Aroma has some pungent fruity hops and a light lemongrass character, almost saison like with the sharp citric notes and light malts. Flavor starts with a surprisingly sharp character, mildly tart with lemon and other citric fruits. Finishes with a somewhat bland and rough character, leaving a plastic note in the aftertaste. Medium body and a super heavy and biting carbonation. I wish several things, better, finish, less, carbonation, more complexity and hop character.

Ungstrup (36889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2009
Bottled. A murky dark golden beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of hops and grass. The flavor is sweet with light notes of malt and strong notes of hops and grass, and a hint of spices. Thanks yespr for sharing.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
Heavy hoppy aroma. Large frothy, white head. Good lacing. Fully lasting longevity. Cloudy orange body with small particles in. Moderate bitter flavor with a light tast of hops also. Medium palate. Watery texture.
