Although I’m not into the citrus and hoppy ones that looks interesting.

Remember the brand but never tasted it - 2%, surprisingly ahead of it's time...

Managed to try quite a few new Spanish beers in Madrid the other week.  Apart from the normal draught lagers such as Mahou & Cruzcampo I also tried these 12 which were either bought at the hotel bar (2) or from local supermarkets (10).

Most were bog standard lagers, but by far and away head & shoulders above everything was the La Sagra IPA which was utterly stunning, superb in fact, one of the best beers I've had in quite a while.  It's brewed in Toledo a town about an hour's drive south of Madrid.

As previously posted, I've been into this ale for many years, however over the past few months I'm finding the head disappears rapidly once poured, never had this problem before. Anyone else having the the same issue?

I think this is a very nice lager, fairly new on the market, it's a collaboration between Molson Coors UK & La Sagra Brewery, Toledo, Spain.

This gear has plenty of hype but it was bang average imo.

Trust me, at 4.6% ABV, it’s not worth the effort.

Still way way better than the likes of Tennents or Carling or the Greek lager (Mamos) that I had yesterday, Madri would win every time with me.

It's a lager, they're all shite. The only ones that are a bit different are Tennents, Bud, Fosters, Miller etc. They're very shite.

I refuse to drink Brewdog. I don't like their beer much anyway.

 

But as a company they're a vile institution.

It's also brewed under licence in the UK and, for that reason alone, can g.t.f. :icon14: There are plenty authentic Spanish beers that you can get - in bottles, cans, and on draught - in Britain, so there's no need to be buying stuff like this*.

Yup. Most of their beers are either too hoppy or too strong, or both, for my tastes anyway. The only beer of theirs I've ever actually enjoyed was a German-style lager (I've no idea what they called it - something "quirky", no doubt) in their pub across from the Kelvingrove Museum in WeegieWorld.

 

They should've called themselves "Emperor's New Clothes Brewing Co.", rather then Brewdog.

I'm the same, I just don't like their beer all that much, I've had several and some were just ok, whilst some were rank rotten.

Victoria and Cerveza Ambar, from the La Zaragozana brewery, are my two favourite "old-style" Spanish beers. I haven't tried many of their "artisan" / craft-beer offerings, but no doubt there are some decent ones amongst those too.

 

I like the retro image on the Victoria beers: a fat, baldy, guy mopping his brow and preparing to enjoy an ice-cold glass of beer. I've no idea why I should identify with that, but for some reason I do...  :whistling:

I know the place. Take the boy to the museum quite often. 

 

It's like Mecca for Hipsters.

I've exactly the same view of them as you, if it's on the drinks menu of anywhere we go to I always make a complaint sbout them selling it.

I remember going into their pub in the Cowgate just after it opened out of curiosity and nearly hit the floor when I saw the prices, I just turned around and walked out. I would have hit the floor a second time if I did actually try some of the very high ABV beers on the board.

Haven't tried that one but I have tried Rogue Wave and Whiteout on draft and enjoyed them both. They are unfiltered and cloudy which adds extra to the flavour. Rogue Wave is about 5.7% so not really a session beer but a couple of those are very nice indeed!

I've tried several from them, Arctic Swell, Brewed Awakening, Happy Chappy, Kowa Bunga, Lager, Red Rocker & Rouge Wave, all bottles.

Happy Chappy was the best, the rest were good as well, but Happy Chappy is the best I've tried from them.....so far.

Most were tried 2018-2019 so should still be on the go.

IIRC I got them from Aldi, when Aldi were doing their Scottish Beer Festivals.

It's been many years since I've had this style of beer, it will not be years until I have another.

 

Imperial Barley Wine (10%) - Ridgeway Brewing Co, Oxon, Oxfordshire

Once you get over the initial blast of alcohol, it's quite sweet with toffee & caramel flavours, I'm liking this beer a lot.

£3.49 per 330ml bottle from Beers of Europe.

I've never tried that, thought I had but I've no record of it, I have had 3 other beers from this brewery, Chouffe Soleil, Houblon Chouffe & Mc Chouffe, but not their normal blonde.  I'll have to get a bottle of it.
