De color ámbar, con un cordón espumoso de buena duración. Ligera y de baja carbonatación. Aroma a malta tostada y lúpulo. En boca es acuosa, un poco afrutada y poco mas. Apenas mejor que la Mahou Clásica, que no es mucho.

Amber looking. Small foam. It disappears very quickly. Smell is fine to high alcohol content. The taste is good. Dark chocolate hints and grassy. The feel it leaves is good. The high alcohol content doesn't feel heavy. It is very enjoyable. I would recommend it.

Clean amber appearance, with a solid white foam, quite elegant.
In the smell malt and toasted notes, dry fruit, a bit of grassy.
Taste way too sweet and full, even in the alcohol. Not fresh at all.
Short aftertaste, sweet, no hop. Light toasted (peanuts?).

Amber copper color with a thick thin head with decent retention.
Aroma with notes of orange marmalade, a hint of toasted and caramel malts, and lemon drops.
Flavor with a bit of toasted and caramel malts, orange marmalade, distant alcohol as flavoring element and herbal hops. Dry aftertaste with a mild towards medium bitterness.
Bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Not bad, but this is landing nowhere. Not sure what they meant about double hops. Malty base overrode any effort.

Sadly, as others new Spaniards beers, they try to subtitute natural strong taste with a high alcohol percentage, which means it remains in your mouth just as you are drinking and then nothing. No taste a second later. A pity becouse taste in mouth is nice. I spected a bit more.

Special promotion offer from check out fella in Madrid...

Brownish red, looks great in my glass.

Fresh, malty aroma.

A completely different beer from the green and red Mahous, this one is much heavier and more chocolatey. Tastes similar to a few Barcelona brewed beers I also tried recently. Personally, I prefer beers to either be light, hoppy and refreshing, IPA style, or Belgian Tripel/Quadrupel style with fruity elements. This one just doesn't really do anything for me, I would rather drink the red or green, especially when in the sun...

When I bought the beer I had curiosity. In the Spanish market are coming beers that make a spectacular propaganda and call themselves as great beers. No, these beers are mediocre at best. This beer is flat, with too much alcohol, too much alcohol and obviously badly treated, a disaster!

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Bottle. After dinner. Not as bad as expected. A bit boozy yes, but not excessively like other people seems to feel.Some caramel. No trace of its "double hops" In fact, it sems less hoppy and more balanced than the regular mahou. Avg 3.75

9 Feb 2019. En copa Teku. Botella. En almuerzo, con acedias + chocos con su tinta. Euro strong lager agradable, no excesivamente alcoholica, pero su publicidad es engañosa ya que no encuentro el doble lupulo or ningun lado. Avg 3.37

28 Abril 2019. En copa Mahou barrica, tipo tulipa. Lata. En almuerzo, con chocos + bacalao dorado + carrillada. Mas peleona de lo que la recordaba. Mas que doble lupulo deberia decir doble alcohol, porque de mas lupulo nada.
