We chose to call our beer Gradisca, because we brew it in this corner of Romagna and San Marino, between the sea and the mountains, a land rich in history and amazing stories. But above all, as a tribute to an illustrious celebrity who was born here, film director Frederico Fellini, who conquered cinema-goers the whole world over with his rich and poetic vein of inspiration, winning as many as four Oscars for his films, including, of course, Amarcord, where Gradisca is the protagonist. Elusive and unattainable, but the object of everyone’s desire. Her sheer grace and elegance are a perfect match for the delicate color of a beer to suit any occasion. This special lager beer has a bright color and forms a light, compact head. The flavor is full and rounded, with a pleasant taste of hops and a delicate scent of flowers. It presents to the palate with a pleasantly fruity aroma accompanied by a refreshing aftertaste of hops that makes it particularly refreshing.

Suggested pairings:
Excellent as an aperitif or with fresh and light dishes such as pizza, vegetables, white meats, sautéed vegetables and savoury pies.

Note: Uses the name Gradisca on the local market, and Prima Donna for export.
Known for being 4.7% ABV in the past, now at 5.2% ABV.

Aroma leggermente erbaceo ma non gradevole. Al gusto è un disastro: acquosa, sbilanciata. Da dimenticare.

50 cl. flip top bottle. Slightly hazy, golden colour with a dense, white head. Sweet aroma with grasses, fruits, pale malts, floral hops and a slight toasted not. Taste is lightly bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with a spicy hint and floral hops. Nice Lager.

massingasetta (555) - München, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2015
A lager type beer with decent bitterness and a good tatse/aftetaste. The beer is good but lacks any thing very special.

Flaska. Klar orangefärgad öl med ett medelstort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av malt, bröd och majs. Smakinslag av malt, majs, gräs och lite mer malt. Söt avslutning, lätt beska. Mjuk munkänsla.

From a 1 litre bottle. Poured slightly murky yellow. Lightly hoppy nose with a suggestion of wheat and farm. Tastes pretty bland,lifeless and unremarkable. Would not buy again although at 15 euro for the bottle it got finished.

This lager forms a nice foam after pouring, and the foam is nice and long on top of the beer. The scent is usual for a lager, merely a little malt and very hoppy. Taste wise enter the slightly out of the crowd by being a little more aggressive hoppy than usual lagers, and that I actually like. It is otherwise the usual malt fill as a pilsner should have, and to start with you sense a slightly sweeter lager than the type normally allows. Hop bitterness has a little more edge than usual lagers and distancing it from being too sweet in length. Lovely with a little innovation in lager ranks as the already very difficult to experiment with without hitting passing type.
