Uno de los primeros intentos de Cerveza "premium" en España, parece ser que se fabricaba de extractos, lo que no les impedía venderla a casi 4 euros la botella. Muy bien diseñada y vendida como proveniente de agua volcánica fue un acierto comercial, aunque con poco recorrido. Excesivamente gasificada, turbia, con acideces que parecían contaminación, sin cuerpo y con un regusto final desagradable. De fregadero.
375 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy rusty colour from the green bottle. 1 finger of white foam.
Smells super malty, some fruitiness that insinuates some sort of tartness. Only insinuates.
The taste does have the malt up front, similar to what you would get from an English Old Ale but the fruity tartness shines as well. Apricot? Peach? Whatever. A match made well to my palate.
Good mouthfeel and very drinkable.
Here is a delicious beer from Spain. Don’t hesitate to grab a bottle if you see it.

a sharp wine grape sour scent. Held up to light it is a glowing brown with a huge active head. Is is a sharp wine flavor that hits you first but then as it expands notes of raisin and barrel push though. Fades to strong sour tart but refreshing coat on the mouth. Complex yet enjoyable might be a little to forward in places but what comes out as it recedes is worth it. txolo (156) - SPAIN - DEC 28, 2013
Rojiza, de poca espume, huele achampanada, sabe a líquido de aceituna en conserva, deja la boca pastosa, muy metálica, demasiado carbonatada, deja una cantidad de poso que alucinas Godofthecellar (678) - NYC, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2013

330ml bottle (One Pit Pub, (Helsinki)teddybeer (4106) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2011
Sharp aroma, tart even, some acidity, definitely. Super-crisp palate, and I don’t mean both super and crisp, I mean the crispness is magnified by the bite of the acidic palate. Those tart tart berries are everywher, as is the sharpness of the acidity, but the whole thing does not taste like it’s bacteria gone outa-control. Reports from others in the pub indicate that it’s been this way since day 1, so it’s clearly not microbes outa-control. Looked lovely in the goblet, with a huge rocky head above the hazy pale aber body. Wasn’t expecting sour, didn’t want sour, but this actually was tasty, so I had the whole thing without too much of a complaint.
Bottle 33cl. Amber colour with a small white-off head. Aroma is malted, with citrus. Taste is light fruity. On palates results with lively carbonation, soft bodied and not very hopped. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2011

Hazy orange colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some herbs and mild yeastyness. Flavour is caramel malts, some fruits, wood, earth and mild notes of honey and yeast. Also has some mild tart notes in it.
Bottled, from Vino y Compañia, Madrid. Hazy amber, small head. Sweet and fruity, light bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. A little roasty notes of almondy yeast and plastic. Fairly low bitterness. Feels unclean. KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
