Brought back from Lanzarote. Pours a dark amber colour with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee & malt. Tastes has a sweet malty caramel with toffee, vanilla & hints of fruits. A malty sweet caramel bitterness end. Overall very drinkable.

A: Amber to a light brown, filtered with large soda like bubbles and a finger of tan tinged white head.



S: Caramel, light burnt sugar, a hint of fruitiness like banana peel.



T: Really light but there is a taste of caramelized sugars, a hint of banana, very light sweetness, clean linen, a sort of light burnt aftertaste left on the tongue. One thing I will give it is it sure covers the alcohol well.



M: Almost milky, light body, with a medium amount of large bubbled tapioca like carbonation.



O: Got at Ginko Supermarket in Kunming, drank March 15th, 2015. Its got a cool bottle and label, looks very classic. Not digging the actual beer's taste and general profile though. Better than a Bud but only because of its unique bottle and the fact its from Spain.

A: looks a little bit yellow for a red Ale, carbonation is not rich even the head is small and the foam is very light yellow almost no permanent layer is formed on top of the beer.

S: very malty smell also some alcohol is present a not very common characteristic for a red Ale.

T: flavor is good, not simple but consistent and attractive. Malty flavor

M: very balanced sensation starts very calm on the mouth and it ends with some sweetness and little bitterness for a lasting balanced little dry sensation.

An alcoholic mess. Not as undrinkable as I remembered but still pretty bad

A-Very clear reddish copper, white head that does not last or leave any lace

S- A little alcohol, slight hops, but a firm malt sweetnes

T- Alcohol up front but not over powering, balanced grainy sweetness with bitterness. Nothing crazy but very good.

M- a little lighter than I thought it would be

D- good. Nice flavors and well balanced.

I'm not CambaBeer. I don't actually know what I'm talking about. But this is a nice drink here. 7% alcohol ain't shabby and the taste is fine and baked like thanksgiving stuffing. Have it with a loved one or have it alone. Either way it's golden.

A fair malty brew from la Zaragozana.

Presentation: 25cl. brown bottle. Label design of a golden seal with classic fonts with a small symbol of a red lion/beast in the center surrounded by text noting awards and main description. Back label notes ingredients, intent, and main brewing style. Shows best by date (25-02-11), and Alc. by Vol. (7%). Served in a short caña glass.

A - Pale ambar pour, good head with small retention and some lacing.

S - Soft malt sweetness, hint of a hoppy note.

T - Light malty sweetness, not particularly profound or complex. Bitter hoppy finish, a bit monotonous.

M - Light to light/medium body with good carbonation and a crisp finish.

D - Works relatively well in a barren dessert of eurolagers offering a bit of depth and taste.

Notes: It's a nice offering from La Zaragozana, certainly above the average Spanish offering, and while not remarkable it's fairly decent as most of this brewery's products given the local production.
