3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with white, semi-densed head. Good lacing, medicore head retention. Light aroma of tropical fruits (passion fruit, lychee), some grassy note. Light to medium malty caramel aroma. Taste is sweet in the beggining (malty caramel character), from the middle it becomes more intense bitter with noticable earthy flavours. Medium body, oily/sticky texture, medium carbonation, long and bitter finish. In general well balanced beer - malty sweet and hoppy bitter. However you won’t find here much hoppy aroma just the touch of tropical fruits.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
In bottiglia da 50cl. Colore arancio, velato, con schiuma fine e abb persistente. Aroma: caramello, mou, resina, aghi di pino, fruttato solo accennato ed un pò spento. Aromi poco intensi. Al palato corpo medio, buona base maltata, soprattutto caramello in evidenza poi seguito da resinoso, pino, poca frutta che ci si potrebbe aspettare, finale amaro e secco. Bottiglia che ha perso intensità e sapori, non fresca come andrebbe bevuta una Apa...
