3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33 l bottle courtesy of Balazs, thanks!
Poured hazy reddish amber with a medium off white head. Spicies in the fruity aroma, sourish green apple, some coriander. Light, moderated fruity hops, rosehip jam in the flavor, herbs, light malt. Not bad, drinkable, but this is not an APA.

Bottle from Da Aldo. Poured amber color with a tan, lacing foam. Aroma of apples, cinnamon, melon, caramel, hay and honey. Medium dense, smooth on the palate. Hops lurking in the back. Not bad!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bevuta in bottiglia, color ambra molto limpido e schiuma molto scarsa. Al naso i profumi sono quasi inesistenti a parte un leggero caramello, al palato delude molto con un amaro iniziale che lascia spazio solo al caramello.

33 cl bottle from Domus Birrae. Served into a tulip glass. Pours a nice and dark hazy sunrise orange with an off-white head. Aroma of citrys hops, caramel malts and a little bit of hazelnuts as well. Taste of caramel malts, some sweetness, and hops bitterness in the end. Medium body, good carbonation. Not a bad beer, but not a special one.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 Re-rate 11/14/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks troubles. Hazy deep reddish orange. Hoppy aroma, a bit stale with some malt and a bit of caramel. Flavor of stale hops, some sweet caramelly malt and a bitter and slightly alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied. OK but past its prime. Score is not calculated. 6/3/5/3/11=2.8

Bottiglia da 33 da Eataly, divisa con Simo e Gian; sembra la ReAle in versione insignificante. Sarà per il grande mercato, ok, ma gli appassionati la snobbano giustamente.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Freedom Traveller, Rome. Pours a barely foggy russet with a foamy, whispy white head. Fine pine hops in the nose, along with some grass and citrus rinds. Great flavor, has some nice caramel sugars, bready malts, light resins, and some juicy orange. Solid medium body with average carbonation. The finish is well-balanced, light toast malts, piney hops, some bitter citrus grapefruit and orange. Really nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dirty rusty orange. Lightly bitter hop aromas; but very much muted overall here. Lots of maltiness that covers a mostly citrus hop profile and a hint of cereal. Body is a bit heavy, and was not really what I look for in the style. Not bad, but not good either.
