33 cl bottle of Montseny Lupulus artisan beer (Iber Ale / Pale Ale) ABV: 5.4%, from the town of Osona, Barcelona, Catalonia.
Montseny Lupulus is a top-fermented lager style made in Catalonia. With this top-fermented beer it is rediscovered the traditional beers of the Iberian ancestors (Archaeological sites: The village of Geno (Lleida) dates to 1,000 BC Bronze Age; Can Sadurni Begues (Barcelona) dates to 3000 BC Neolithic Age). The recipe includes malts and hops used in current high-consumption domestic beers of the Pilsen style (bottom-fermented) or Lager family.
Tasting notes: All the intensity of hops in combination with Pilsen malt, to quench the thirst. Serving temperature between 6 and 12 º C. At low temperature we have the flavour and bitterness of hops clearly defined to freshen our palates as in a Lager style beer. However, the optimal tasting is obtained above 9 º C, at which point the textures and flavours produced by the Ale yeast and body or sweetness of the malt emerge, balancing their taste with the bitterness of the hops.
Bitterness: 29 IBU
