    Intense, bright lager, the colour of old gold. Aromatically, the balance tips towards malt, with pleasant, sweet, caramel notes. Water from the city of A Coruña, two-row malt (Pilsen and roasted), corn, and Nugget hops. Selected yeast from Hijos of Rivera. The bitterness on the palate balances its high alcoholic strength and its mild spicy aftertaste. It is the outcome of the recovery of a historical recipe by Hijos de Rivera, the Especial Extra (La Colorada). Its brewing, in our exclusive production centre, follows our traditional guidelines: the best raw materials, a specific wort, a long ageing process.

    Black beer, with coppery and ruby highlights. Roasted aromas reminiscent of malt and coffee. Water of the city of A Coruña, blend of four malts with different grades of roasting. Nugget and Sladek hops. Selected yeast from Hijos of Rivera. On the palate it stands out for its marked, long-lasting bitterness combined with subtle base notes reminiscent of liquorice and cocoa. Its brewing, in our exclusive production centre, follows our traditional guidelines: the best raw materials, a specific wort, a long ageing process ... The weight of the four-malt blend in the recipe is the mainstay of this beer’s character.
