2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp clear golden coloured body with a rich, three centimetre tall white head. Aroma of malt, rice, light hops, grain and some mild sugars. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic and pungent malt flavour with a lot of grain and alcohol present. Aftertaste shows a bit more rice and grain than usual with a good sweet finish, but a bit pungent. Overall, not a horrible beer, but not a good one and not one that can compete with the beers just a few hundred kilometres away. Interesting to see a German beer with Italian all over it, but understandable. I sampled this 50 cL swing-top bottle purchased from Billa in Milan, Italy [via Torino] on 15-February-2014 for €2,55 sampled in my apartment here in Milan on 16-February-2014.

Non è la mia birra preferita ma non la trovo nemmeno malvagia. Buono il sapore a primo impatto e abbastanza presente il luppolo nel retrogusto.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ogi’s, brought from Italy. Poured a slightly misty golden body with a small white head. Buttery sweet alcoholic aroma, malty. eh. Sweet, slightly too sweet malty taste, with light notes of alcohol, light peach, some tea, some plastic. Some note saves it, and it’s kinda harmless tasting for the strength, as in not rocket fuel, but hardly a great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Clear amber with a tight white 2 finger thick head.
Aroma: Biscuit, corn, slight honey/syrupy notes, spicy, and a herbal/grassiness.
Taste: Medium sweetness and bitterness with low sourness. Slightly vinous with spice.
Palate: Thick rough texture, medium body and mouthfeel, prickly carbonation and quite astringent. The finish is quite abrupt with vinous maltiness initially which gives way to an increasing bitterness and spiciness and alcohol warmth.
Comments: Tasty and quite refreshing. Left a glass lace.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with large frothy off-white head, no lacing and lively bubbles. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, herbal hops, vanilla, dark fruits and some alcohol. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, followed fresh grainy with strong alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is spicy, while aftertaste is moderate hoppy with long duration. Medium body, thick texture and average carbonation in palate. Good, but too strong for hot summer day...

09.05.2013. 0,5 Swing Top Bottle. Pan Panorama. Pisa, Italy. Aroma of sweet malts. Strong beer with good firm body and a fair part of alcohol. Mild with mellow bitterness. Sweet malty flavours that goes very well with the alcohol. Low bitterness leaves malt swettness in the aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep golden orange with brown hues and a small white head. Nose is light citrus, hay and spice. Taste is way to sweet. No bitter can be detected whatsoever. The mouthfeel is soft, light and the finish is medium. It compliments my spicy stir fry ok, but nothing special.
