From Hipercor Huelva. In Teku glass. Waching "¿Que paso anoche?" The alcohol is noticeable although it doesnt make it too much disgusting

A: The color is clear golden while the tall head is off-white and quite compact. Rich lovely lacings.

S: Alcohol and some marzipan up front. Then there is sweet bready malt and some floral hops, but also some boiled veggies.

T: Follows the smell!

M: Alcoholic and warming full body with almost no carbonation or aftertaste.

O: A very standard Euro Strong Lager.

looks very pale, plenty of coarse bubbles rising to the top. foam is pretty stable for such a high alcohol beer

not much aroma but there is booze not unpleasant and sweet malts, maybe some subtle German/Czech hops

really boozy taste, sweet, light malts and some bitter aftertaste

mouthfeel is pretty much like you common pilsener, quite spritzy and light body, however there is also a little malty body

If I would rate this to style, I would give it probably a mean of 4, because it is well done. However, I do not get the idea of making such a strong beer with the limited possibilities to balance it provided by a pale lager. This style is not for me and I am definitely not going back to this.

Alcohol and malt nose, with a little background grains. The mouth is in the style of the rest of the line Gordon, that is to say too much alcohol, so the other flavors, if any, of course, are completely overshadowed. There is also an excessive proportion of sugar. However, the aftertaste leaves some traces of peanuts, including nuts, on the tongue, which is a tad on the level of the beer.
