1906 Reserva Especial has a thin, white, soapy head, a hazy, orange-golden appearance, lots of little orange chunks floating about, some streaming bubbles, and a decent amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is bold and rich. One picks up medium-roasted barley malt, some alcohol sweetness, and brown bread. Taste is of all those, plus some bread crust, a slight hop bitterness, and even a fruitiness (figs?). Mouthfeel is medium, and 1906 Reserva Especial finishes mostly dry, fairly refreshing, bold, and strong. This is more of a sipper, really. Overall, I think it’s a really delicious beer. RJT

Review: 33cl Bottle of 1906 Reserva Especial: ABV: 6.5% vol HULK777 (637) - - OCT 28, 2017
The beer has won a stack of international awards….at the Monde Selection and the World Beer Challenge amongst the many.
The bottle caught my eye…..the design of the label was quirky enough, looked more like a bottle of wine with its age printed……1906…..looked intriguing, so I snapped it up. The 1906 refers, of course, to the date the brewery was founded.
A pretty good looking beer in appearance, with a lovely decent sized frothy white head and a nice golden colour.
Very good lacing with a head that maintains throughout.
Lovely smell, very beery, very malty, very good smell……
Smell is very strong on nose, grains, malty. Yeah liked the aroma.
Taste is very sweet initially, front taste is hoppy and too sweet, not a great start.
Horrible! Typical, always the way….good smell n good looking but always a shitty beer, why is that?
On taste got a creamy mouthful.
Very hoppy. Not great, not smooth.
Ok, there are some tastes, mainly malt and sweet grains, but overall it is tough to drink. Not nice at all, what a pity.
Caramel aroma. Taste is bread, caramel, some burnt notes. Nice finish, well balanced. Nice looking also.

On tap at Odeon. Pours golden brown with no head. Aroma is caramel and toast. Flavour is moderately thick with some caramel and bitterness. Finish is slightly bitter. rumore (803) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 28, 2017
From the tap at Mariluz, Oviedo, Spain. Pours intense gold with very fine white foam. Crisp. Aroma is bready, nothing more. Body is average. Taste is sweet at first. Write some bitterness coming out in the finish.

330ml bottle into schooner glass (as 1906 Reserva Especial). Faint aroma of cardboard, maybe some fruit? Golden bronze beer with thin white head and high fine carbonation. Medium body, slight zing in the mouth. Finish is distant smoky malt with a touch of sherbet. Even for a Vienna lager this is a bit ephemeral, not a lot going on here. Easy drinking, though.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 A aparência é bonita, mas o sabor é muito amargo. E a presença do álcool é altamente notável. Media drinkability. ShivanDragon (4649) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2017

Bottle with friends. Not badly balanced, quite pleasant. Aromas and tastes are downplayed to ensure drinkability and mass likeability while still retaining some of that craft idea factor.
