Bottled, 75cl. Amber, with lots of micro-floaties and a nice beige head. Roasted, spiced, malty, sweet aroma with caramel. The flavor and finish is more on the hoppy side, with spicyness and caramel as well. It has a medium to full body. Nice italian!. (061229

Hansen (8435) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2006
I was surpriced, Italian beers is normal not among the best beers to me. This one is one of the better christmas ales. Amber and lightly unclear. Has a fine malty aroma and flavor. No extra sugar. Yeasty notes, almost like handbrewed.
