Birra tedesca di stampo commerciale, gradazione elevata che ne frena aromi e sapori.

09/11 0.5 l fliptop bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured clear golden body with medium sized head. Sweetish floral malt aroma, touched with alcohol. Flavor was sweet as well, fruity malt palette like peaches, cooked apricots, quinces, butter, with some alcohol of course. Medium to full in body with fine sweet finish. Nothing special, but generally a pleasant winter warmer.

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.
