COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2013
Ambrata con molta schiuma che scompare riscaldandosi. Aroma fruttato (mela, appena versata, poi uva bianca ed infine emerge la banana) alcolico, e malto. Ingresso in bocca carbonato, dolce, di nuovo la fruttatura la fa da padrona con le stesse note riscontrate nell’aroma. Il tutto è riscaldato dall’alcol che di sicuro non fa la figura del timido in questa birra. Finale migliorabile con un pò di maturazione probabilmente. Senza pretese.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle sample. Clear amber with a nice white head. Fruity nose (grapes) with some yeast. Sweet flavor of muscat, malts and low bitterness. Medium bodied and lively, so so.

kerenmk (3264) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Dancing Came. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Light tea colour, clear, no head. Raspberry, a little sour aroma, then sugar candy. Sweet taste, a little honey, candy too, nice. Light body, ok fizz, long finish. Sticky, but nonetheless I like it.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Clear amber. Weird sweet aroma with malt, cookies, fruits, a bit of graininess, alcohol, a bit of oxidation and somewhat strange I can’t put my finger on. Sweet malty flavor with fruits, a bit of cardboard and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty un-enjoyable.

Mortlach (1297) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2012
13/02/2012 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Ambrata carica, lievemente torbida, schiuma biancastra con venature giallognole, abbastanza abbondante e persistente. Aroma intenso di frutti rossi, caramello, zucchero di canna, lieviti, spezie e alcol. In bocca è dolce, leggermente stucchevole fin da subito, non perfettamente bilanciata e con un finale non proprio pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Si lascia bere, ma non è niente di eccezionale.
