Rosa Blanca, a traditional independent
brewery founded in Mallorca in 1927,
refreshed locals and tourists with Pilsen,
Munich and Bock Balear beers for many decades.
The island’s tourist boom in the 1960s
attracted large international brewers;
Rosa Blanca could not compete
with them and went out of business.
But in 2018 Damm relaunched the brand,
reviving the long tradition of Rosa Blanca.
Rosa Blanca is brewed with
the traditional ingredients of a lager:
barley malt, maize, rice and hops.
It is a well-balanced, creamy beer
with hints of lightly roasted cereals.
Barley malt, maize,
rice and hops
Aromatic and citrus
Towards the end of brewing,
when the beer is maturing,
Citra hops are added to Rosa Blanca.
They are added cold,
at between 0 and 1º C,
to extract the fruity aromas and
citrus notes of this variety of hops,
without any bitterness.
Rosa Blanca is a pale golden beer
with a light, cream-coloured head.
On the nose
The fresh aroma of Citra hops,
a characteristic hint of citrus
and notes of stone fruit make
Rosa Blanca a very refreshing beer.
In the mouth
Rosa Blanca is balanced and harmonious:
the mild, malty sweetness combines with
a soft bitterness.
The mouthfeel is creamy and pleasant.
Best enjoyed between 5º and 7ºC
