Nice continuous foam. This blonde ale is brewed on sea water from the Mediterranean Sea in Catalonia, Spain.This ale offers fresh aroma of cereals and also has a mineral flavor which may well be a residual salt of sea water. It is not decidedly salted in the taste, it tastes more sulfur, black pepper and juniper berries. The hops bitterness is tender and no significant hops have been used in this ale. However, the hops are dosed in the right amount to set a fine edge for its malting so that the mineral impressions enter the character. Carbonation is perfect and contributes to long aftertaste. I'm pretty sure it will be absolutely perfect for seafood and fish. rumore (697) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 6, 2017
33cl bottle at Beer Shooter, Cartagena, Spain. Pours hazy, somehow dense, slightly pale gold with white medium irregular foam. Aroma is regular cereal, plus, when warmer, some minerality. Body is average with appropriate carbonation. Taste is not too sweet, with moderate bitterness, and again some harder mineral feeling left in the mouth. Finish is not interesting.

Strong carbonation. Initial light sweetness with a strong astringent finish. There is an unusual suggestion of the ocean in a good way. It isn't salty, despite what the label might make you fear. This would pair very well with extremely fresh seafood. I give this a little extra credit for it coming from Spain, because this is not a nation of great beers, generally. This is actually one of the best beers I have ever had from that part of the world. thellgren (1109) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia Helsinki. Appearance is dark golden, cloudy and huge head. Aroma has lots of yeast. Taste is mellow, malty, and sweet. Quite easy to drink, but not salty. Juks (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 19, 2017
330ml bottle. Gusher. Pours hazy orange, fizzy white head. Aroma is citrussy, flowery, malty, bit tart. Taste is citrussy, refreshing with sour toutch, mildly hoppy. Saltiness in finish. Medium bodied, overcarbonated. Taste is good, but massive overcarbonation ruins it for me, BB is next year.

Well it is certainly salty but not in a bad way. Sweet salt perhaps? Yes probably a golden ale underneath this flavour and in reality quite a modest beer. Still interesting enough the salt drives a fantastic plank of tangy fruit right through the palate. Tasche39 (359) - SPAIN - SEP 11, 2017
Cerveza hecha con agua de mar, supongo que desalada por que es a lo que sabe, a agua destilada. The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
August 2017 - Keg at Curado Bar Cardiff as 'La Socarrada Er Boquerón', 4.8%, made with sea water apparently. Paired with K25 gin and tonic. Pours translucent pale orange, sparkling with a small off-white head. Aroma is cracker-like malts, black pepper, light berries, cranberries and juniper (or maybe that's the gin talking). Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is weird in a good way – cracker-like malts, light salinity, salted citrus, little tangy berry tartness in the background. Pretty interesting and it works. Better than expected and would pair pretty well with food. (6-4-6-3-13=3.2) Acaro (304) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2017
Aroma: Citrus, herbs and floral notes.
Appearance: Gold color with cloudy liquid and white head.
Taste: Medium bitterness and light sour touch.
Palate: Medium body with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Bitter citrus finish and salty touch.
Overall: Sea features. Too much carbonation and it hides a bit some of the features. The salt is not evident. joe19612 (3020) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a fluffy white head, the aroma is light hops, the taste is medium bitterness with a touch of salt coming through with a dry bitter finish.
