3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,75 bottle shared with cika Boban in Jesolo-Italy. Pours a dark amber color, cloudy with a medium frizzy off-white head. Nose is malty with a US hops feel which is quite distinctive. The carbonation is not that flat (bottle) but the body stays watery and thin as it should be. Not much of the roasted feel which I like in a Bitter and far too much of that citric bitterness which never turns disturbing tough. This is an American Bitter instead.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In bottiglia da 75cl. Aroma di crosta di pane, caramello, fruttato e terroso. Al palato corpo leggero e scorrevole, carbonazione bassa. Sentori di caramello e crosta di pane iniziali seguiti da una luppolatura ben bilanciata tendente al terroso ed erbaceo con sfumature di fiori di campo. Buona intensità e grande bevibilità

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml from hand pump at Birra+. Dark orange, pretty hazy, with an average, frothy off white head. On the nose floral and tropical fruit hop notes and lots of caramel. Some toffee and roots/herbs as well. Pretty sweet upfront, slightly astringent. Quite herbal and again caramel forward. Ironically not bitter at all. I wouldn’t call it watery, but it’s extremely easy to drink. Soft carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Very nice modern interpretation of the style.
