2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, limpida, schiuma beige fine mediamente persistente. Aroma poco intenso, maltato, leggermente mielato, floreale (margherita) una lieve nota agrumata. Gusto Abboccato, acidulo, fruttato agrumato più intenso rispetto che naso, si ritrovano maltato e miele, leggero caramello. Spigolosa, decisamente carbonata, di consistenza quasi appiccicosa, poco calda. Non molto equilibrata e piuttosto fuori stile.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bière ambrée, aux arômes de malts et de fumé. A peine trop sucrée à mon goût.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from a licor store in San Marino. Clear dark amber colour, medium frothy off-white head, fair lacing. Heavily malty aroma of bisquit, caramel, nuts and plum with moderate floral and earthy hops and some alcohol. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a bittersweet finish with a moderately alcoholic feel. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. A surprisingly easy to like beer of this strength as many Belgian ales often are, one of the better Italian beers I’ve had.

750ml bottle poured in a mug.
A: Pours a golden orange clear color. Forms a small white to beige bubbled head. Characteristic strong ale low carbonation appearance with practically no lacings left
S: Smell is sweet and fruity. Caramel malts dominate. Yeasts. Honey. Candy. Bit citrus hops in the end. A Doppelbock with hints of a Belgian ale
T: Sweet upfront. Caramel. Caramel malts, honey, yeasts, flowery hops. Mild bitter aftertaste
M: Medium creamy and bit molasses body. Low carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild citrus and bitter aftertaste. Detail: It’s a 9% ABV, not 10% as described above
O: Good drinkability. Good beer. Amarcord is a honorable tribute to master Fellini ;)

Amber, small head. Some sweetness and caramelly in the aroma. Also in the taste caramel, sweetness. Smooth, some alcohol shows up. Nice but the alcohol shows up too much towards the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Caffe Berry, Sliema, Malta. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is malt, resin, light medicinal hop. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a rich sweet malt, yeast, toffee caramel, alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Served cool which suited the beer. Sweet and alcoholic, but both under control.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Caffe Berry, Sliema. It pours clear golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is sweet, sticky, grainy, dough, stone fruit, cake and candied citrus peel. The taste is bitter-sweet, sticky, boozy, toasty grain, orange peel, light candy, sponge cake with a dry, warming finish. Medium+ body , fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Not a whole lot of depth to it, but gets you buzzed quick.
