On tap at an Orlando Airport bar. Served in a shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Clear amber with a white 1/16" thick dense foam (fine bubbles). Plenty of persistent lacing on the glass.
Smell: Not a lot of aroma - bit of crisp grain/mail, with some German type aroma hops thrown in.
Taste: A bit of roasted malt up front and moving quickly into a hop bitterness. Much less malty than I remember.
Mouthfeel: Just south of fizzy - high carbonation. Some thickness underneath the carbonation.
Overall / Drinkability: I wonder....did the bar get this beer diluted? It doesn't seem up to snuff somehow. I seem to remember this beer as maltier when I've had it in the past, but maybe my palate has changed so much I'm tasting this quite differently than I remember. Not sure. I'll have to try it one more time at a place where I know I can rely up on the quality and see if the beer is different yet again. If it's better - this one is getting deleted as again, something isn't quite right or my palate has really changed a lot since the last time I had this beer.
Serving type: on-tap

330ml bottle. Stange glass @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Amber color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, thin but lively crown. Crystal malt, lager yeast, floral aromas & resinous hues. Toasted flavor & arising bitterness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Clean bitterness & dried mouthfeel rounded by spicy touch. Subtle honey & lemon-tea hints linger into a long bitter finish. Mild toasted notes on the aftertaste. Refreshing & easy drinkable !!
