COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Volpina: nel suo splendido colore si scorgono i riflessi del rubino. E’ ricca di profumi e di spezie per una sensazione calda che avvolge il palato e lo conquista con un finale rotondo e persistente.

Una buona strong ale di stile inglese. Colore rosso rubino, sentori speziati, bel luppolata e strutturata, lascia un senso rotondo e sobrio sul finale

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"looks like this red ale has been repackaged (still an attractive flip-top 500 ml bottle, but a different label) as Aprecchio Red Ale. Nice presentation, and although it’s not a spectacular beer, if your in the mood for a nice, dark red, nutty, malty brew...this could be it. Hit the spot. Definitely caramel & roasted malt heavy, but a bit of noble hops in there for balance as well. Imported in CA and sold at Trader Joe’s."

tania_nexust (223) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle gifted by a friend, however I think the bottle is rather out of date and the beer past it’s best so hard to make a judgement on what it’s ’meant’ to taste like. Pours a very muddy red-amber colour, very malty nose, and a thinnish malty flavour. Would love to find a fresher bottle and re-rate.

Scopey (7193) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle at Caffe Berry, Sliema. It pours clear red-amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet, sticky, candied orange, wood, caramel, and marmalade The taste is crisp, bitter, woody, varnish, leather, light alcohol, varnish, orange peel andwaxy lemon with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not too bad.

Kita (1166) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 29, 2014
Swing top bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber color wth medium off-white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, bread, yeast, candy sugar and wood. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt and toffee, follows by mild fruity and woody sourness with mild bitter finish. Medium body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Nice addition to Amarcord collection...

Dark amber color. Sharp taste on the bitter side with bread, cereal and some toffee. Not enjoyable.
