1906 Red Vintage & baby scallops in scallop sauce
The Blushing Beauty
1906 Red Vintage paired with canned foods
The result of the recovery of a historic Hijos de Rivera recipe, the Especial Extra (The Blushing Beauty, 1982).
A “Doppelbock” lager-style beer inspired by the German school. Intense, extended storage and an excellent balance of (Pilsen and roasted) malts and Nugget hops, this is definitely a malty beer characterised by sweet caramel notes with strong liquor flavours.

An intense combination
with a spicey aftertaste
Baby scallops in scallop sauce are the perfect accompaniment for this beer.
Our “Blushing Beauty”, pairs to perfection with shellfish and flavoursome sauces such as our scallop sauce.
The delicate meat of the baby scallops, with their fibrous texture and delicious flavours of the sea, are the ideal complement for the sweet, malty flavours of the beer, forming a fabulous contrast for its full body and intense alcohol taste.
The sweet caramel hues blend to perfection with the sweetness and acidity of the scallop sauce, clearing the palate and enhancing the slightly spicy aftertaste of the beer.
