Ölmönger: Ölbeat 272: Malmgård Eldorado Brown Ale
What about the beer?
Colour is dark reddish brown with a medium-sized natural white head. Aroma has sweetish malts, gentle roast and pecan nuts. Taste starts with sweetish malty bitterness. Grainy and bready malts take over with bittersweet fruits. Towards the end citrus bitterness gets on top with a caramel-malty side tone. Aftertaste has malty-nutty dryness and fruity bitterness.
Fine fruity Brown Ale. Grain-bread domination turns to fruity bitterness and finish has dry nuts. Quality brew from a not-so-interesting style.
El Dorado hops may have gotten its name from any of the United States cities, but I connect the name of the brew with the mythical city of gold in modern-day Colombia. The fresh approach to the beer style asks for a fresh song, so here we go.
