Kross Lupulus es una interpretación del estilo inglés ESB (Extra Special Bitter), es una cerveza ámbar que tiene como principal característica una combinación de maltas de diferentes tostados, equilibrado con un amargor suave y un potente aroma a lúpulos. Utilizamos una técnica llamada Dry Hopping que consiste en incorporar lúpulo no sólo en la cocción sino que también durante la maduración. Esta técnica aporta un potente aroma floral pero no incide en el sabor.

Maltas Especiales: Carahell, Rubia, Caramelo
Lúpulos: Magnum, Glacier, East Kent Goldings

MoritzF (9491) - Ottobrunn, - MAR 1, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly bready and oxidised cara-malty aroma with citric and delicately woody hops. Sweet and mildly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malt upfront with bready and buttery notes, accompanied by a slightly herbal and fruity hoppy touch; moderately sweet and slightly hop bitter finish. Drinkable but not overly exciting. 01.III.13

Martinus (4559) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2016
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, resin, skunk and malts. Hoppy flavour, sweat and malts. Malty and hoppy finish. Feels a bit light struck.

Maracuja05 (796) - Mainz, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016
09-08-16 / 330ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head which disappears very fast. I taste something but cant define it. Taste is bitter like a ESB should be and some light malt aromas.

A good quality ESB. The name would imply something hoppier but whatever the case it’s a good well balanced English bitter.

didierlewallon (286) - ponferrada, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2016
Cerveza de color amarillo naranja medio con una buena cabeza de color blanco. Aroma moderado a malta, caramelo, fruta dulce y lúpulo. Sabor a fruta dulce y amargo suave con un regusto seco y amargo, buena cerveza, pero nada especial.

77ships (8391) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2016
330 ml. bottle sampled thanks to tderoeck! Bottle states SEP 2015 not sure if BBF or bottled by date. Very pale, faintly hazy golden. Nose is interesting ,massively sweet candy mixed with apple candy, very sweet hops & dash of vanilla. Very weird but not unpleasant, in a fun candy-like way. Taste is a letdown unfortunately after the smell, totally weird, cardboard, paper, oily, chemical, bald, mildly unpleasant chemical, dat watery, big letdown after the interesting smell, not too good. Too bad.

kraddel (6666) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2016
Thnx to Tderoeck. Pours rather clear blonde. Smell is sweet, dry malts. taste is very very mild bitterness, but also buttery-yeasty and malty. Sounds like a lot, but the beer is actually buttery/wattery, and -luckely- not too intense.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 27, 2014
330ml bottle from Vienés Café in Viña del Mar. Pours a clear deep gold color with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Early caramel makt flavor then hoppy bitterness dominates. Body too weak to support the big hop presence. Hoppy aftertaste.
