Cervesa del Montseny - Lupulus Hoppy Iberian Ale; Malta Pale Ale

Cervesa del Montseny is in Seva, Spain.

Lupulus Hoppy Iberian Ale - This 5.4% ABV beer pours a cloudy dark yellow golden with massive, fine carbonation.  It has a billowing mountain of thick and bubbly white foam.  The aroma is sour, tart, and yeasty.  The taste is far less sour than the aroma.  The taste is grain, grass, flowers and a sour tartness.  There is also an earthy note.  The taste is far superior to the aroma.  An interesting beer with a lot going on in the flavor, many subtle notes.

Malta Pale Ale - This 5.1% ABV beer pours a cloudy burnt orange and amber in color.  There is a massive, roiling, boiling, bubbling head of towering foam that is off-white in color.  The aroma is tart, sour and malty grain with burnt caramel and sherry notes.  The taste follows the aroma, with the tartness present, but not as forward as in the aroma.
