Hazy copper colour. Fruity malty aroma. Soft texture. As the beer warms slightly the nuttiness becomes detectable. Light hoppy finish.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Buona birra davvero! Si sentono le castagne subito poi dopo un po’ meno, molto equilibrata! Si presenta molto bene con un bel colore ambrato e buona schiuma non molto persistente, il retrogusto non e’ duraturo e unica pecca si sente un po’ di sapore metallico! 28/05/2012. Ribevuta in bottiglia, migliorata nell’aroma ancora più castagne e luppolo, migliora anche il gusto, castagne più evidenti un tocco fantastico di luppolo, retrogusto più persistente, il sapore metallico riscontrato alla prima bevuta, completamente sparito!
