3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Open Baladin, Roma, 23/06/13.
Hazed dark amber with a decent size light beige head.
Nose is malt forward, caramel malt, fruits, light hop notes.
Taste follows. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitter notes in the finale.
Ok APA - a bit over malty and not quite hoppy enough for my taste.
