3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to some kind person at mesandsim’s tasting. Most likely them. A new one on me I think, not had much Italian beer apart from the obvious shite lagers. Strange for an IPA, more like a Belgian tripel. As an IPA, no. I quite enjoyed it though. Strong yeast in the nose and in the flavour, some fruit, brown sugar.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lagery aroma, weak hint of grapefruit. Cloudy dark yellow colour. Good stable white head. The flavour starts off sweet and a bit yeasty. Turns quite alcoholic and spicy, seemingly from the yeast. More yeast in the aftertaste. Except for the rather dry finish, this is a Belgian tripel IMO.

Non è una IPA e non è una belgian, al naso spiccano il malto e luppolo in egual misura, in bocca è piatta e banale,nè carne nè pesce.

0,25 l bottle from myBrewerytap.com. Peaches, barnyard, a little Belgian yeast. Pleasant, a small bottle is really too small a measure for this stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A reasonably nice pale ale with floral, hoppy aroma, moderate bitterness and almost hidden strength. Golden, almost clear with average head. Aftertaste tends towards alcohol. Interesting bottle (25 cl) with the label molded to it, including a description text on the back. @ Eataly Bologna.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle, Rehills, Ncl. A sharp, yeasty aroma made me initially think of a poor UK BCA, however, thankfully, this does not transfer to the taste. A faint strawberry sweetness to this golden brown ale, a bit sugary and a very pleasant in the aftertaste and finish. Some brown sugar creeps into the aroma, as does some alcoholic spirit. It stays rounded though and citrus creps into the flavour late on. Good stuff.
