Aroma- I get a ton of malt with a dash of caramel. Not bad.
Appearance- A neat looking brew, has a nice reddish tint. Pours a large white head.
Taste- A real strong malt and grain flavor, it’s pretty good.
Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It has a smooth finish with a light aftertaste.

Italian. This beer is too light for my palate. Smooth but no really flavor shines through.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 12 oz bottle poured. No bottled date, and I have reasons to believe it?s been around a while. Pours a dark amber color. Soft bread and sweet malt aroma. Light flavor with bread and some banana. Minimum sweetness. Much better than expected. I will drink this again.
