2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml green bottle bought at Tasty Mart in Yuen Long.
Clear dull golden colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy small carbonation; Aroma of full malt, with strong initial skunk (lasted for 3 minutes), floral, strong sugar, bread, lemon and fair grass; Close to medium sweet taste of malt, floral, molasses, bread, light yeast, light lemon and moderate bitter grassy hops; Mid to light body, Quite slick palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness in a slick, somewhat sluggish body filled with emptiness. Strong floral with bits of residual skunk hops dominate. Sweetness is quite okay, not as strong as the smell suggests. Okay bread. Quite strong hops to close. Not too bad… Hoppiness is initial skunk with floral, lemon and light grass in nose, and a lot stronger in taste. Bitterness is moderate, quite notable with further sips and an abrupt, mid-to-low astringent finish; Slightly dry after taste. Hoppy and fairly bitter to mouth.
Comments: Beyond the quick light skink, this is actually a borderline decent lager with passable maltyness, fair sweetness, and a somewhat thick but empty body. Good looks and lacing plus mid-fi hops don’t really turn it around. Drinkable but with some reservation.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mar 2013 - an organic lager from Italy. Overall, it was drinkable and nice enough. Rich maltiness, bit sweet, full body for a lager - one of the densest I’ve tried I think.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bevuta al ristorante vegano (sob!) vicino a Piazza Bellini, non ricordo come si chiami; beerhunting irresponsabile. Versa piuttosto torbida, con bella schiuma, naso zero, ma sapore passabile, credevo molto peggio. Bello il tappino con scritto Ekò sopra la tizia della Birra Morena....
