Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear orange colored brew with an spot-on dry bitter taste with some fruitiness, delightfully British wiith the hints, biscuit, toffee and christmas spices.

Glad to see a lot of christmas spirit beer. This one is a bit spicy, worth trying.

Almogabar (52) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - MAR 3, 2017
Botella de 550 ml comprada en Líquidos almacén de cervezas (Zaragoza). Color ámbar, dorado, algo turbio. Poca espuma, color beige. Aromas a maltas, caramelo, tostados y una especia fuerte que no logro reconocer. Sabor amargo, se nota el lúpulo pero esta equilibrado, como una buena ale británica. Frutos secos (¿almendra tostada?), especias. Cerveza rica, no muy fuerte para ser una Winter Ale, pero se disfruta.

Bottle. Very malty (roasted & biscuity) fruity winter ale. Smooth, full-bodied. Nice hop balance & dry finish. Liked this. Nice beer. (2008)

Rust in colour with a thick white head. Burnt caramel and sweet bread aroma. The beer is very sweet with a lingering after taste.

Clear dark amber colour, no head. Aroma is sweet and malty, biscuity and full of of toffee. Flavour is very English, malty and nicely bitter. Fuggles and EKG are very noticeable. Very nice!

La birra che ho degustato è quella del 2016-2017. Colore: ambrato tendente al ramato, trasparente. Schiuma: non molta ma cremosa, non molto persistente. Aroma: biscotto, miele, frutta secca, toffee. Sapore: attacco dolce, si ritrovano le stesse note riscontrate in aroma: biscotto, miele, frutta secca. Finale amaro erbaceo e terroso.

Bottle as a gift from my son. Pour was amber, off white head. Aroma of fruits, toffee. Taste of mild bitterness, light spice, malt, raisin.

3.2
kaserov (738) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación mínima. Aroma maltoso y ciertamente especial (no sé si es el/los tipo de malta utilizada o las algas), también frutos secos. Sabor maltoso con mucho carácter, un toque de frutos secos mínimo, y buena dosis de amargor final (no es el amargor de una IPA, evidentemente, pero es un amargor que le viene como anillo al dedo). Cuerpo medio. Me gustaría que fuera un poco más compleja, pero así, tal y como está, es muy sabrosa.
