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 (252) - 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.

Bottle, 33cL. Home. A golden fizzy beer, light opaque ; medium white foamy head with a medium retention, ok lacing. Herb, light lemon, light biscuit, light spice. Light sweet, light dry bitter spicy refreshing. Light to medium body, thin texture, light silky, average good carbonation, dry spicy bitter finish. Overall, an enjoyable blond herbal spicy italian ale ; refreshing.

olio (8874) - 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 (3452) - 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.

Bottle from Alimentari Quadrifoglio, Peschiera del Garda, Italy. Hazy straw coloured with a sweet, spicy herbal and floral fruity flavour followed by an earthy, honey and spiced finish. Nice!

NordicV (1821) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2016
Dimmig bärnstensfärgad öl med smutsvitt skum. Doften är fruktig, kryddig, örtig med hö och jäst. Samma återkommer i smaken. Tendens till tvålighet drar ner betyget något.

Vighals (2819) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 2, 2016
Lys brun tåkete med høyt hvit skum som legger seg fort. Lukter noe urter, trevirke og syrlige bær. Bitter mot besk smak, noe gjær og sitrusskall.
