This blog is still in its early days, so I’m still playing around with formats and content. This blog is the first of a series of bitesized blogs focusing on a Barcelona based brewery, Cerveses La Pirata! Which, by the way, is a fantastic name for a brewery! I’m very excited to get to try some craft offerings from a bit further afield, credit to Beer Central for stocking such a eclectic selection!
I managed to get my hands on a selection of 4 beers, and the first one I tried was Eau D’Houblon which is a collaboration with DouGall’s.
I particularly like the bottle design for this one, even if it is a tad disturbing!
The pour was extremely lively, making me slightly concerned it would be over carbonated but it turned out just right.
This beer struck me as almost a Brut Pale Ale, with it being quite fizzy and very dry. This isn’t a bad thing though, as it is tremendously drinkable and very light. Slightly hoppy and just a tiny bit bitter right at the end. Can imagine it would go down very nicely on a nice warm evening by the sea!
Overall I would give this a solid 3.5/5, nice easy drinker that has a good depth and lasting impression.
Tune in to part 2 for a look at more beers from Cerveses La Pirata!
