3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml in a nice designed bottle, lotto 411, bought at Vinmonopolet Valkendorf in Bergen. Hazy, apricot coloured body. Remaining off-white head. Grassy hops in flavour alongside hints of smoked malts. Quite well blended malt-fruity taste, hints of smoke and bread. Smooth mid-sweet ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied. Interesting (hotel room, 18.09.2012).

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a muddy golden brown with a finger of off white foam that settles out quickly. Aromas of malt... with a light touch of smokey malts. On the palate its a bit brighter than I expected from the nose. Nice toasty malt flavors mingle with smoke, bready caramel and a touch of bitterness on the end.

Bottle. Cloudy light brown with tan head. Nice beer for the fall like weather. Tastes like a typical marzen/octoberfest. Sweet and not bitter. Coats the mouth and flavor lingers.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is slightly earthy with leaves, toasted malt, fresh cut grass, and dry hay. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall there really isn’t’ much to say about this one other than it’s underwhelming.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle This was tried at a restaurant in the new National Harbor. The bottle is impressive and differnet. The birra was shared with a friend. I am not sure I could have finished the whole bottle. This was not a good experience. The birra poured a prunish color and tasted like smoked prunes. Maybe the trip from Italy impacted the product.

Poured a hazy copper color. Thin white head. Some syrupy fruit flavors with cardboard in the aroma. Taste has lots of cardboard with caramel and metallic tastes. Finish has some fruit with more cardboard. It’s ok, but weird.
