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

Keeper (253) - Milano, - SEP 29, 2012
botte, 075. Brra italiana...recensione in italiano! Non mi ha entusiasmato. Va bene..fatta solo con roba italiana...ma non è all’altezza delle altre di baladin. Troppo amara in ingresso e nel finale, con una struttura non molto definita. Limone ed arancia nell’aroma, ed un finale amaro ed acidulo.

mice (782) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Utuinen, hailakan kullankeltainen olut vaahtoaa runsaasti. Kupliva vaahto kuitenkin katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksussa vahvaa mausteisuutta ja vehnäistä viljaa. Maku viljainen, hedelmäinen, runsashiilihappoinen. Hieman raskas yleisilmeeltään, vaikka maistuva onkin.

colui72 (644) - HONG KONG - JUL 22, 2016
Pours clear golden, with a dense white head. Aroma is malt, lager hops and hints of lemon. About the same in the palate, with a sweetish malty backbone. Decent ale.

Idiosynkrasie (6316) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2016
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, yellow-ish golden colour with average to huge, foamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Fruity and minimally floral-spicy aroma, notes of yellow apple, apple purée, hints of oat flakes, bergamot, rose hip, a touch of coriander. Taste is minimally sweet oaty, fruity notes of yellow apple, apple purée, mild, dry overtones of bergamot; slightly curbed lively carbonation. Mild, well balanced, unobtrusive but pithy.

olio (9211) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
33 cl bottle. BBE 02/2018.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Aroma is quite soapy and wheaty, herbal hops, orange zest and some coriander. Surprised by the quite strong carbonation, wheaty and slightly grassy flavor, some mandarin and spices on the finish. As said, the carbonation is a tad too strong here, interesting spicy ale anyway.

RexTalionis (3489) - FINLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Garden fruityness, dried fruits-in-a-box, funky hay in aroma. Some sweetness too. Floral notes and bittersweetness in taste. Mild bitterness too. Quite soft but bit too bland on the whole.
