Dorada Especial ExtraMaduración
Intensive malty, sweet lager-like aroma with bit of iron. I think there’s also a bit of DMS on the end of the nose. Head disappears quickly after pouring. Straw clear colour. In taste there’s sweet malty note, some iron and note of floral bitterness which is low and short. Almost no aftertaste. Body is medium, carbonation is very high, fizzy. Overall it’s average lager with some flaws, but these are not too strong and didn’t ruin the beer.

Dorada Especial Miel de Siete Cañadas
Golden colour, with a tiny head that fades in a few seconds. Almost no lace. Smell of grains and a bit of honey. No carbonation and light body. Taste has some honey on it, but a bit bitterness too. And that’s all.

Bottle, 6.5%. Mild caramelly aroma. Clear amber colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is caramelly and slightly sweet. Has a good clean bitterness. Good mouthfeel, which is surprising for the style.

Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and something infected, with notes of hops and touches of yeast. Faint flavour of hops, with notes of malt and yeast. Bitter, rather rough aftertaste. Not bad. I had actually expected something worse. Reasonable for the style.

Bottle, 5.5%. Malty and papery aroma. Clear golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is better than the aroma. Slightly malty with a caramelly finish. Quite clean and not astringent. A lot better than expected.

Saturday Beer
Shared 330 ml can at local tasting, bought in Tenerife. ABV is 4.3%. Clear pale golden colour, white head. Weak aroma, not offensive though, with a little fruit. Easy drinking, fairly "neutral" and dry flavour, a little hops. Soft mouthfeel. Clearly designed to be an unoffensive beer to effortlessly down a sixpack of, on a Saturday afternoon.

Fra 0,33 boks på RBHD-samling hos Odd Gunnar, april-17: klar, lys strågul med kort skum. Citrus og kokte grønnsaker i aroma og smak. Heldigvis kort ettersmak. Sikkert en lettdrikkelig og enkel forfriskning i solen på Gran Canaria.

33 C degrees outside, driving around Tenerife. You grab a sandwich and chips for lunch, and pick this beauty to wash ’em down. The only scenario I can imagine when someone would choose this brew.

Dorada Especial Roja
330ml bottle as a gift from Lanzarote, Spain:
A strange one considering it was labelled as a Vienna style lager but then failed to deliver on the sweetness or malty flavours for the most part, it also opened with a tonne of skunk on the nose that I really wasn’t expecting. The beer improved a little after being given some time to open up & allow the skunk to subside a little but there wasn’t enough from the caramel or toffee malts to make it a great one. It wasn’t really an offensive offering & the light body coupled with the crisp, clean palate made it an easy one to drink but it’s unlikely I’ll have it again.

Tropical Bandido Cerveza con Tequila
330ml bottle as a gift from Lanzarote, Spain:
Very poor stuff, the nose started very skunky but settled down a little by the middle thankfully. There wasn’t a whole lot to this beer in truth save for the lime & basic adjuncts that followed the skunk from the nose, there was touches of citrus & a few grassy flavours nearer the middle but it’s definitely a basic beer & one that I’d avoid having again.

33 cl bottle from a Hiperdino Supermercado on Gran Canaria. Poured in to a Weizen glass. Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with yeasts, slightly toasted notes, apples. Unfortunately some dusty cardboard notes. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with yeasts, fruits and a subtle spicy note. More cardboard. Nothing special - a cheap beer anyway.

Fra flaske på RBHD-treff ombord på Fridtjofen, jan-17: uklar korngul med fint skum. Maltaroma med søte tropiske frukter. Smaken har litt for mye kornblanding (type frokost) i seg til at den er umiddelbart sjarmerende. Ikke stiltypisk.
