Nose
Rich toffee and malt, with a little spice and fruit.
Palate
Creamy, sweet malt, toffee and spicy, warming alcohol are the main features. There's a reasonable bitter/hoppy counterbalance but the malt dominates leaving sugary notes on the tongue.
Finish
Bitterness builds but the creamy malt persists. A hint of liquorice begins to show through.
Comment
A dark copper lager brewed in Cordoba, Spain, home to a stunning 10th century mosque (mezquita). Rather strong for sipping in the blinding Spanish sun.
