Birra ambrata di alta fermentazione ispirata alle tradizionali India Pale Ale inglesi, molto luppolata nell’aroma e nell’amaro. Al naso si percepiscono sentori agrumati principalmente di pompelmo e sentori speziati, in bocca il malto fa da padrone, segue poi il fruttato ed infine l’amaro che rimane molto persistente. La gasatura medio bassa tipica dello stile ne consente il servizio con la tradizionale pompa inglese.
A brand-new beer from a brand-new, very promising head-brewer. India Pale Ale following the American Pale Ale style with a fruity aroma (grapefruit), with peppery notes (East Kent Goldings), a rich taste of malts (Maris Otter and Crystal), with a very long bitter and citrus finish typical of Cascade hops.

330ml bottle from Brewdog (£5):
Citrus and pine malts and is quickly overtaken by a strong floral hop aroma, some sweet malts and a sort of perfume like smell. There is also some alcohol right at the end.
Deep, honey amber colour with a two cm bubbly head that gradually reduces in size. The beer is clear too.
Hops & a combination of pine and floral ones with some soft caramel malts and various fruits. Definitely a fruity one with some orange and citrus along with some apricot and various berries plus some toffee.
Lively carbonation and a medium body with a strong alcohol lacing at first before settling down some. There is a crisp, dry finish that hints at bitterness too.

Pretty nice beer and one that went down well without being an outstanding beer. Initially the floral notes and the alcohol seemed too strong but both of these quickly died down as the beer settled and I got further down the glass.

Bottiglia. Colore ambrato con una schiuma compatta e persistente. Aroma luppolato e agrumato. Al palato è bella rotonda, ben bilanciata tra l’amaro del luppolo e il dolce dato dal malto. Buona.

My preferred beer between the Reale and Reale Extra. Nice amber colour and a well balanced body with a lovely maltiness thats balanced with easy bitterness that makes this super easy to drink.

Another great well balanced beer from Birra Del Borgo. They might now be commercial but they are still making great beers!. Nice malt driven profile with great hop character.

Tap beer. Birra colore ambrato vivo con luppoli aromatici americani. Al naso sono presenti note agrumate (pompelmo e arancia) e pepate. In bocca la gasatura è bassa, con poca schiuma, c’è un buon corpo ben equilibrato, con un lungo percorso verso l’amaro finale, intenso e molto persistente mettono in evidenza l’uso massiccio dei luppoli.
