The amber version of OPEN, OPEN RISERVA combines the features of caramel and amber malts with the aromas of American hops. The result is an explosion of well-balanced taste, where the biscuit aromas coming from cereals and the notes of dried fruit blend perfectly with the bitterness and the aromatic scents of hops. The body is strong but never excessive, to ensure it is easy to drink. The head is thick and creamy. 16.8°, 33EBC.

Rune (8503) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
750ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes, and shared with friends at a tasting session. Opaque, apricot coloured body. Good lacing from a decent off-white head. Aroma of sappy oranges, lightly spiced. Mid-sweet flavours of spiced fruity hops, earthy malts and celery. Semi-sweet, malt-fruity ending. Well balanced. Gentle, smooth and nice (Tromsø 03.06.2013).

Davros (2041) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2013
Pours dark amber with a fading head. Nose shows nutty malt, toasty hints, sweet malt, soft apple and pear. Not much else in the way of hops. Nice. Malty flavours too, loads of bready malt. Some piny hops and booze followed by a mild bitterness. Carbonation is too high.

Smaskifa (124) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2013
Muddy amber with a nice head. The aroma is quite fruity, some citrus and hops. The typical Baladin body, silky, medium carbonation, intriguing effect. The taste is pleasant, some citrus and tropical fruits, light hops, nice malty texture. The aftertaste has a distinct touch of licorice. Nice one from the Italians.
