Agullons Bruno Pale Ale

. A longer version was first published on facebook January 2009.
Beer Sellers:

ABV: 4.5%
Origin: Mediona, Barcelona, Catalunya

I tasted this unpasteurised on draught at the Cerveteca in Barcelona. It’s from a tiny farmhouse brewery that at the time of tasting was very new but had already got its beers into British and Belgian festivals. This tasty US-inspired pale ale, named after the brewer’s first son, was tweaked by Barcelona-based beer guru and Cerveteca staff member Steve Huxley.

It’s a hazy deep golden beer with some fine white head and a lightly sweet hoppy aroma with some nice malt character and a touch of phenols reminiscent of wheat. A full dry palate has crystally burnt rubber notes and a grapefruity bite of hops turning thistly on the tongue. A lasting finish is hoppy and peppery with late resins. An impressive beer that’s definitely hoppy but not overbitter, and easy to see why it helped to win the brewery a reputation.
