Golden Ale. Come una dama d’altri tempi, la Cortigiana usa le sottili armi della seduzione per conquistare ogni palato. Dapprima irretisce con la sua disarmante freschezza, per poi rivelare un carattere appena piů deciso, che conduce senza indugi al secondo sorso. Difficile resistere al suo aroma ammaliante, in cui i profumi agrumati e floreali dati dal luppolo si sposano alle note mielate del malto, con una intrigante nota speziata nel finale che aggiunge quel "nonsoche" ad una birra decisamente beverina. Potrete tradirla, ma mai abbandonarla!

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, - FEB 8, 2008
Tap at Bir&Fud, Rome.

A very interesting "forest floor" and rose petal aroma (coming from Warrior hops, apparently) and then a complex bitter, malty and deliciously hoppy taste with lots of bitterness and fruity hop. Another lovely Del Borgo beer, but I’d say it’s more of an APA than a Saison?

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Smithld1 (136) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
In carluccios at the airport. I had to rate this with the missus so this is her score which is really too high. It’s ok but strange aftertaste. Good option in this venue though.

Oelbas (268) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2016
Tåget gylden med stabilt hvidt skum. Duften er en blanding af blomst og grape med let sødme. Smagen er fyldig og let sød med en markant bitterhed, der udvikler sig en den lange eftersmag. En frisk ale i meget flot balance.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - FEB 16, 2016
Di colore dorato e schiuma bianca poco abbondante e poco tenace. Al naso il citrico prende il primo piano accompagnato da uno speziato che si mantiene in sordina fino alla fine. In bocca l'attacco è di malto e crosta di pane, il finale speziato ma poco deciso.
