RateBeer.com -- Correct Birrificio del Ducato Bitter AleBirrificio del Ducato Bitter Ale


Description:
What happened to the true Bitters? The ones featuring hand -turned malt and a fragrant biscuity palate? Here it is finally, simple and light but with character. It has many tales to tell, oceans to cross and harbors to meet where I would eventually find her.
Do you remember the good times?

Being extremely simple, clean and essential, this beer sets a counter trend in the Italian Craft beer arena which usually seeks unusual elements such as exotic hops or spices to characterize the beer. It is brewed using English raw materials. Its aromas of biscuit, shortbread and hazelnut are delivered by the use of malts directly imported from a small malt factory in southern England still hand turning its barleycorns during germination. The beer’s spicy nuances are conveyed by the use of traditional English hops whereas its delicate fruit aroma of peach and orange preserve is delivered by a traditional English yeast strain.
Being always fascinated by English Bitters served from hand-pumps, I decided to give this style a try despite its difficult brewing process. A perfect alchemy is required to make a bare 4.2% beer elegant and complex. First, it has to be extremely easy to drink; second, it must present certain enticing elements.

Its making is an attempt to recall the poetry inspired by the enchanting landscapes of the English countryside. Those who have been there know it is unforgettable.
