COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Water, malt, hops and yeast. That’s it! Why? It took a simple beer to express a simple project. And it took an innovative beer to express an innovative project. This is how OPEN BALADIN was created: a beer with a “strong” personality and at the same time delicately captivating. And this is how this beer – the first “open source” beer in Italy – has slowly captured the hearts (and especially the throats…) of those who enjoy good, healthy and informed drinking. 27 EBC, 16.8°

Short-lived white head over pale orange-golden beer. Bit milky, lactic nose, milkchocolate. Weird. Finishing expressly almondy. Again milkchocolate, creamy, and a hint at sourness. More almonds or marzipan. Slick, and again: milky MF, strange. Bitterness seems to come as an afterthought. Unbalanced, weird, unsatisfying. I do not know what the brewery intended, but I doubt this is an IPA in anyones book.

harrisoni (14610) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2011
25cl bottle from The Grove Huddersfield. Not expecting this to be any great shakes as they were selling it off cheap in the pub. No mark on the pub mind. Get rid if beers are filling up fridge space. So not expecting it to be full of hop life. It is indeed not great. Hops have died to leave a sickly toffee beer with some bitterness on finish. Nit great and i will re-rate if i see a fresher batch.

Se dovessi valutarla come una India Pale Ale sarebbe insufficiente, ma in sè a me non è così dispiaciuta.

skortila (4715) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. The aroma is light fruity hoppy, bit malty. Hazy, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is bitter, malty, light caramelic, some fruits. Quite carbonated. Quity a heavy one for the stomach.

tommann (2979) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
250ml bottle. Pours a murky gold with a large head. Aroma is earthy, grassy hops, touch of banana and cooked veg. Taste is mostly cooked veg. A bit earthy in the finish, maybe a hint of hops. Fresh in at the shop that day, so fuck knows if it’s poorly made or stuck with distro. American beers get to the country fresh so no reason why an Italian beer can’t.

JulienHuxley (3892) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
Bottle thanks to hoppypocket. Light hazy gold pour, white head and medium lacing. Aroma: Lots of cooked veggies, earth, old grain some alcohol. Very brash. Taste is musty grain, again very earthy. Just doesn’t feel very refined. Definitly bad.

danielyabu (1350) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - AUG 14, 2011
Large frothy white head. gl. md. translucent sparkling thin dark yellow body. aroma: heavy malty and hoppy, flowers, orange, honey and vanilla. if: light sweet and acidic moderate bitter. ff: light sweet heavy bitter; long duration. palate: medium body watery texture medium carbonation light alcoholic finish. Acidez diferenciada, sem ser azeda, amargor lupulado, permeado magistralmente por dulçor maltado achocolatado, fugindo do padrão ipa, 120 s

Tiny 25cl bottle from Beerhouse. Served into a snifter. Pours a cloudy but bright sunrise orange, two fingers of white head, very nice lace retention. I don’t know how old this bottle is, but I don’t sniff a lot of hops at all. Light malt presence, small yeast smell as well. Moderate bitterness in the mouth, soft to medium carbonation, kind of watery texture. Honestly this doesn’t taste like a tipycal IPA to me, I would have loved a little bit more body and hops presence. Still nice tho.
