2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle - pours light amber with a very small fizzy off-white head that dissipates almost immediately. At first the aroma is corny and sweet like an asian lager then as the beer warms it becomes maltier and less corny. The taste is rather sweet initially, there is the tiniest hint of caramel and the finish is dry and slightly bitter. I wasn’t impressed, there is certainly worse out there........but there is certainly a lot better too.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 09.15 from Italy. Aroma of yeast, caramel and honey. Red, dark amber coloured beer. Two fingered head, small bubbled, reduces to flat, off-white colour. Not bad lacing. Medium sweetness in taste, reminds flowers, toffee, caramel and biscuit. Full bodied beer, oily and creamy with low bitterness. Little sourness in aftertaste. Carbonation is very soft and nice. Alcohol is well camouflaged. Nice beer in classic style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a pizzeria in Mazzano Romano (€ 4.50). BB 06.16. Caramel / copper colour, clear, with a rather big light beige head. Retention and lacing ok. Straw and cereals on the nose, sweet, papery, also home-made apple juice and canned peaches. Caramel, nuts. I’m having mixed feelings. Tastes sweet, caramel and canned fruits, nutty, with a tiny - and rather nice - tingle of alcohol and bitterness in the finish. Nearing bandaid-y. Watery, slightly metallic. Carbonation soft, body light to medium. Not sure what to think of it.

Mi aspettavo qualcosa di più da questa birra avendo provato la bionda doppio malto. Si sentono poco il malto e il luppolo. Peccato
