COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered

Non pastorizzata, forma sedimento naturale. Se credi che una birra per essere grande debba mostrare i muscoli, non hai capito niente. Se ti vuoi divertire fai pure, tanto lo sai che alla fine tonrerai sempre in gionocchio da lei. Pero non chiederle scusa, lei non ti perdonera.

Androsato (2) - Procida, ITALY - JUL 6, 2013 does not count
Buono l’odore, speziato, eccessiva la gasatura che copre i sapori, il retrogusto amaro è piacevole ma la birra nn è tra le mie preferite

Hazy amber beer, small off white head. Suprisingly thick palate for the style and abv. A lot of malt, has a toffee streak and tastes a bit tired. Okay hops - mild orange bitterness. Semi dry finish. It’s fine but we really don’t need Italians doing dull English bitters - there are plenty already!

Hazy with a nice fizzy washed. Some grassy hop aroma with a bit of dirt and citrus. Peppery yeast and citrusy hops. Pretty decent actually.

Bel colore ambrato con fine schiuma. Al naso malto biscottato. In bocca ancora malto protagonista deciso, molto simile all’aroma.

Agradable amargor y paladar seco. Matices de piel de limón y notas de piel de pera. Leve astringencia. Cuerpo intenso y carbonatación media. Final resinoso con lúpulos oleicos en el retrogusto. Refrescante. 330ml bottle. Pint glass. Enjoyed on dec´11. Pours orangish amber in color with clear appearance. Off-white crown , fairly good retention. Hoppy & yeasty to the nose. Gentle bitterness, dry palate. Hints of lemon zest with peach peel hues, some astringency. Full body, medium carbonation. Resiny finish. Oily hops in the aftertaste. Refreshing.

[ASPETTO] oro carico, quasi ambrato , velata [SCHIUMA] buona presenza, bianca, fine e buona persistenza [OLFATTO] media intensità con profumi leggeri che toccano sia le note maltate con una sensazione tostata e caramello, sia luppolate con un leggero floreale e alcune note fruttate (frutta acerba?) [GUSTO] sapori tenui, con una approccio di malto smussato da un graduale amaro intercalato da sfumature fruttate ( uva bianca?) ed una leggera astringenza . Finale secco, media persistenza [TEXTURE] corpo leggero, watery, carbonazione sostenuta e percezione alcolica minima. [COMMENTO FINALE] bottiglia "birrificio del ducato - bitter ale", molto probabilmente una ri-etichettatura della serie Bia, cosi come per la golden ale. Birra leggera, fresca, con toni molto pacati (volutamente, sembra) che lasciano il compito di guidare la bevuta a timidi malti e un fruttato difficile da incasellare. l’amaro finale è molto soave e serve più che altro a pulire la bocca secca. sensazione minerale, acquosa e una carbonazione inziale un po’ altina. non mi ha convinto troppo, però non posso neanche dire cose negative. piena sufficienza .

KyotoLefty (6185) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle by mail order from Umano liquor store in Kanazawa. Almost a gusher, poured cloudy bronze with tons of rising bubbles and a preposterously huge head. Fruity, spicy aroma, seems more like Belgian yeast, with nice hops. Pineapple, orange, metal. Interesting, inviting nose. Flavor is caramel, grass, a bit of tobacco, earth, iron, and citrus. Nice bitter finish. Very carbonated, though the body is decent. Head is settling into rocky formations like an Orval or something! Decent stuff. A bit out of the ordinary and interesting.

Wha??? A rating? Say it isn’t so. Dumped out a light coppery beer with plenty of silty suspension, a big, bubbly light tan head that sticks to the glass and sticks around for a long time - probably until I drain the glass. Ok interesting aroma - ginger jumps out and doesn’t leave, orange peels, bit o earth, smidgen of caramel and somehow something milky without it being milky - its almost like I can smell a mouth feel or something. More ginger in the taste and a good solid familiar bitterness. Tasty hopppppps and spice, dried orange peel, dirty caramel. Somewhat dry and a lengthy smooth bitterness and faint fruit finish this off. Meh.

330ml brown bottle. Deep golden-orangey pour, unfiltered appearance with some haze and particles. White head, frothy with nice lacing. Light aroma - some malt notes and light citrus. Taste has grains, light caramel, soft background citrus hops -nice orange peel note. Aftertaste has some bright citrusy and leafy hops continuing, pretty good bitterness level. Light body, low carbonation. Decent bitter, pretty accessable.
