VISUAL PHASE: Intense matt yellow gold. Medium frothy consistency with creamy bubbles on the surface which invites you to drink. Carbonic gas is created naturally throughout the second fermentation process in the bottle.
SMELLING PHASE: Aroma of freshly baked bread and cake with soft hints of apples. Fresh aroma with a subtle touch of yeast on the nose. Critical finish, more ripe.
TASTING PHASE: Harmonious combination between the presence of carbonic gas and freshness in the mouth. Medium bitterness coming from the hop; notes of apples – bananas are maintained. Critical finish with a more bitter touch than at the beginning, which makes this beer be drunk easily. Alcohol is well integrated, this is why it is a beer with correct acidity and round in the mouth. Mild beer, ideal for drinking at any time of the day.
PAIRING: All types of cheese, particularly semi-cured with paprika rind and cured cheese. Shellfish. Fish: mainly oven-baked oily fish (sea bream, tuna or salmon); fresh and canned sardines and anchovies. Asparagus: both white and wild, fresh in salads and omelettes.
