If I am looking for a lager in the future, I’d definitely consider getting Madrí Excepcional once again. Situated between Toledo and Madrid, La Sagra sits in a unique area of Spain, which is historically a melting pot of different cultures and tastes. This philosophy of “fusion” has been integral to the creation of Madri Excepcional. Its branding is inspired by the term “Chulapo” – originally a group of people in Madrid during the 19 th century who were famous for their elaborate style of dress and cheeky attitude. Today, the term is often used to refer to people from Madrid and this sense of style and attitude that lives on in the city. Madrí Excepcional embodies this sentiment by bringing together traditional and modern brewing techniques to produce a great tasting fusion beer.

And as for the taste? It’s pretty good, to be honest. There’s a lot of shit lager out there, and Madrí isn’t one of them. ‘It isn’t too strong on one side or another,’ says Haye. ‘Even if you’re a neutral beer-drinker, you’re not going to find it offensive, and you’re not going to find it tasteless. And I think that’s exactly what they were looking for. It just seems to fit straight into the market.’ I’ve drank Madri on it’s own as well as having a burger with it, and it does the job well on both occasions. It’s really easy to pour too. I poured this out from a 440ml can into a glass and it was so easy. A nice head on the beer without it being too frothy which can be a problem for some lager. According to Brown, this is a common strategy: ‘If you’ve got the distribution points, you can copy somebody else’s brand, not have that brand in your distribution, and say, “But this one’s just as good.”’ Spicy.

What Does Madrí Excepcional Taste Like?

We’ve always lived vicariously through brands,’ says Brown . ‘We were really wishing we were in Spain, and Madrí made us feel better about it.’ Coors seized the opportunity: according to their marketing controller Ryan McLaughlin, the summer marked a ‘multimillion-pound investment’ in the brand’s ‘El Alma de Madrid’ campaign. Post-pandemic, the brand symbolised the one thing we wanted the most: a nice sunny holiday The traditional Madri beers such as the pilsner are brewed in Toledo in the La Sagra brewery, but the Excepcional is done by Coors. What Does Madrí Excepcional Taste Like?

Madrid is famous for the passion of its people and this passion is embodied by the “Chulapos”, a group of people in Spanish society in the 19th century who were famous for their elaborate style of dress and cheeky attitude. Today, the term is used to refer to anybody from Madrid and this style and attitude lives on in modern day Madrid. Molson Coors Beverage Company (MCBC) has announced its first collaboration with the La Sagra Brewery, based near Madrid, with the launch of Madrí Excepcional – a new modern European-style lager.I wondered why I had been seeing quite a bit of what seems to be the new brand that is Madrí, so I done a bit of reading. Carlos Garcia grew up on the outskirts of Madrid and after seeing first-hand the central role that beer plays in Spanish custom & lifestyle he began to sell craft beer. This ultimately led him to establish La Sagra, a young, innovative brewery, with a passionate team of beer lovers brewing exceptional quality Beers, leading an unstoppable beer movement in Spain & beyond! I’d definitely put this in the same leagues as the other branded lagers you’ve probably had: Peroni, Moretti, San Miguel and Estrella Damm.

He's the 'Chulapo', who were part of Madrid's society in the 19th century. They originated from a sense of pride for their neighbourhood where they were born and raised, famous for their vibrant and elaborate style of dress. Today, they represent the people of modern Madrid, full of life and energy! It's this progressive spirit of modern Madrid that inspired us to make Madrí Excepcional. It seems like Madrí is being heavily promoted. I’ve seen a lot of bars using Madri branded umbrellas and dividers outside their bar, this seems to be Madrí Excepcional will initially be exclusively available to the On-trade and Molson Coors aims for it to be available in outlets across the UK by the end of 2021. The Madrí we have in the UK, Madrí Excepcional, is a collaboration with the original brewer La Sagra and worldwide brand Malson Coors (aka the Coors beer brand).Carlos Garcia, Founder and CEO of La Sagra Brewery, said: “La Sagra is founded on taking the best of the diverse cultures that surround us and applying innovative brewing techniques to create great tasting beers that stand out from the crowd. These principles are shared by Molson Coors and by working together we’ve created something really special in Madrí Excepcional, a unique fusion of the Chulapo way of life and British brewing heritage.” No one who comes in here from Spain has ever heard of it,’says Haye. ‘They’ll ask: “Why has that got Madrid on it?”’ But the British lager drinkers? Lapping it up, he tells us. Every last drop. For over two centuries Molson Coors has been brewing beverages that unite people for all of life’s moments. In the UK and Ireland we now have six breweries, with our UK home in the renowned brewing town, Burton-upon-Trent, and a nearly 300-year-old cider press in Suffolk. It doesn’t taste too weak or too strong, and being 4.6%vol it sits at a nice strength for easy drinking. They call this a premium lager, and I’d say it is a really nice drink. Madrí is a completely manufactured and invented brand,’ says Pete Brown, an expert in beer trends and author of ‘ Clubland: How the Working Men’s Club Shaped Britain’ . ‘It’s purely a marketing reflex exercise. And it’s probably the best [marketing campaign] we’ve seen since Peroni.’

Peroni was the drink that madeContinental lager cool, if you didn’t know. And to follow suit, Heineken poured a shitload of money into Birra Moretti, and Carlsberg did the same for San Miguel. ‘If someone’s got a lager with branding that’s doing really well, then all the other big groups copy it,’ Brown explains. ‘They want a share of the action.’ And thus we entered a new era. A sizzling hot new category entered the trade: ‘Mediterranean lager’. An unconfirmed rumour in the beer world is that Madrí is simply Coors Light with extra hop extract It’s been a while since I tried a new beer, but I saw some Madrí Excepcional and decided I had to get myself a few cans for the summer.

That was exactly the same month that Manchester Evening News reported on the new beer that was ‘everywhere’ in the UK, and the Irish Mirror asked whether the new lager that the UK was ‘obsessed’ with was about to ‘take over’ Irish pubs too. It was the same month that LADbible sent out its Madrí lager appreciation tweet with no explanation whatsoever. This received nearly 13,000 likes and rather a lot of suspicious comments. One said: ‘I’m increasingly convinced it’s a marketing tool for something else and not a real lager.’
