3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Huge two fingers of pure white head, sticky spotty lacing, clearer marigold hue. Hoppy with a little sweetness and a bit of citrus in the aroma. Fairly bland taste at first, but then provides a kick of spice and hop in the finish. Mostly sweet maltiness and the hop in the aroma kinda gets lost in the flavor. OK

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Open Baladin Rome. Pours a clear gold with fine bubbles and white head. Light to medium body. Soft mouthfeel. Palealtoness flavors evenlyatched to mellow hop flavor and subtle hop bitterness. Late alcohol presence. Clean and nice. Resembles a strong pale ale should such a category exist.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl bottle. Hazy brown with thin head. Nice aroma - tangy fruits and hops. Full body with good carbonation. Flavour malt with peppery spiciness. Plenty of pleasant hoppy bitterness in the long finish. Overall a very solid beer, although it reminds me more of a strong Belgian beer with extra hops, than an IPA.
