Our first experience with International beers


Handcrafted beers.
Handcrafted International beers.

Despite the fact we are not (the) Spanish Beer Sisters, we are indeed (the) Spanish Wine Sisters, we could not miss the chance of tasting some premium and handcrafted beers from all around the world (that we can actually find easily in our city)

In this first experience Nuria would highlight as her favourite is Ambar Caesar Augusta (from Zaragoza, Spain) and Virginia will go for Pacífico (México). There’s no accounting for taste. The bottles were indeed original and were worth tasting them.

Our tasting notes as follows

Kozel (Republica Checa) and Rosita Original (Tarragona)
Kozel (Republica Checa) and Rosita Original (Tarragona)

Carmen.Handcrafted beer. 4,8% vol. Madrid. Spain.

Gold colour a bit turbid. Barley, caramel, apple and wafer aromas. In the palate is salightly bitter with a bit sweetness touch, easy and nice. Also tastes with toasted notes and chestnut.

Carmen (Madrid) -Hancrafted beer-. Pacífico (México).

Rosita Original. 5.5% vol. Tarragona. 

Honey yellow colour. Turbid. Cereal with touch of honey and chamomile notes in the nose. In the palate is less bitter, light, bitter touch in the end. It is smoother than than Carmen Beer but also is more simple and less complex.

Cerveza Pacífico. Clara. Mexico. 33 cl. 5,5% vol.

Wasabi and “bitter” aromas. Gold yellow colour with citrus and salty notes in the nose.

In the palate is smooth almost with no bitterness and a bit salty. To Virginia’s palate is better than Spanish beers.

Benediktiner (German beer, alcohol free). Kirin Ichin (Japón).

Mahogany colour. Not very intense in the nose, a bit of toasted and salty notes.

In the palate is very smooth with a bit bitter but very well-balanced. A bit bland.
