COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first 100% Italian beer made with Italian ingredients. An intentionally simple beer: Italian water, barley malt, hops, yeasts and two Italian spices (bergamot and coriander) which combine to create harmony and originality. A beer which suggests more or less daring combinations, but more importantly marks a turning point in the Italian production of craft beer. Nazionale, is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with any dish. 13.6° EBC 10

White,frothy, rocky, fairly fine head. Straw yello, cloudy. Fairly intense and persistent at nose. Herbal, straw, white flowers, citrus,jasmine. Highly carbonated. In the mouth is a marriage between sweet and bitter with a fine bitter in the finish

erickok (4248) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
A simple beer as intended. Light Belgian fruity yeast but also a German feel to it. Pale malts, good drinkable body. Soft carbonation, could be heavier for me. And could be more bitter but that would defeat the purpose of this beer I suppose... (Stylish bottle from Saveur Bière)

Taste comprises caramel, sweet licks, light fruit, fig biscuit, sugary apricot jam. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Pretty basic, overly sweet, not well joined up. Med.

tomer (2132) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 21, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly head, cloudy and a little deep yellow color, aroma of sourdough bread, yeast, rubber, fruit and some paper in the back, flavor of fruit and minerals, with some yeast and almonds, feels a bit heavy. Nice but a little unbalanced, could be better.

DSG (8326) - Tel Aviv, - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks troubles. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of coriander, yeast, a bit of citrus. Yeasty flavor, spicy, with a bitterish touch and a citric note. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation.

leghorn99 (100) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 2, 2015
Nel bicchiere è di color giallo quasi paglierino, velato; la schiuma, bianca, è un po’ grossolana, poco persistente, e non lascia nessun pizzo nel bicchiere. Ottimo impatto olfattivo, con un aroma fresco, pungente e pepato, ricco di spezie da lievito che si mescolano a sentori fruttati di polpa d’arancio e, in secondo piano, frutta gialla. In bocca risalta per una carbonazione molto elevata: il corpo è leggero ma non eccessivamente, quasi medio. Bella pulizia anche in bocca; il gusto richiama parzialmente l’aroma di frutta gialla, su di una base maltata di crosta di pane; pungente e vivace, grazie all’apporto speziato e pepato dei lieviti. Il finale è secco e pulito, leggermente amaro erbaceo, ma un po’ troppo veloce e sfuggente, retrogusto breve e poco persistente.

Ragnampiza (740) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 15, 2015
330 ml bottle purchased and drank while traveling on a train. That’s pretty cool. Deep gold, extremely hazy, with a huge, fluffy, forever lasting white head. Great lacings. Fresh/wet hop notes, in that funky and cheesy way. Quite earthy and spicy overall, not so much on the fruity side. Estery (Belgian-ish) and nutty in the background. Slightly astringent upfront, chunky mouthfeel, honey like sweetness, lingering herbal, peppery and almost chili like aftertaste. I wasn’t expecting any warming sensation considering the ABV, but there is a hint of it. Average to lively carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Complex and dynamic beer, too heavy on the spices for my liking, but not bad at all.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle pour. Hazy golden-amber with thin white head. Large yeasty nose, with fruit and confectioner sugar. Medium body. Starts sweet. End sweet. Round and straightforward. OK.
