Bottle share at Leighton’s, thanks to Cilon. As ’Birradamare Raaf Raaf Raaf Raaf’, 6.0%, BB July 2016. I like the design of the bottle and the label on this. Hazy, cloudy, dirty orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is meaty, smoked ham, orange, a little sour. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is resin, tangerine, light smoke with a dry finish. Pretty decent.

Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has mild minerally crispness. The malts bring a light cream. The smoke is bordering on strong but it’s well integrated and it’s a kings floral smoke, the beechwood maybe. Touch if lactose in the semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.

Dorata con schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Al naso un po piatta, affumicato poco presente. Molto meglio al palato, dove l’ingresso dolce lascia subito spazio al affumicato, sapore di speck intenso e dolce.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
ASPETTO: ambrato torbido, schiuma bianca, fine, abbastanza abbondante e molto persistente (ne rimane sempre qualche millimetro). AROMA: affumicato (ricorda lo speck), ma non particolarmente forte, aroma fresco di fiori. GUSTO: l’affumicato si sente poco in bocca, avrei preferito si sentisse di più. Tuttavia la birra presenta un buon caramellato e biscottato, nonché un tocco di acidulo. Alla fine della bevuta, emerge una leggera stucchevolezza sul palato. Carbonizzazione media, corpo leggero. Birra bevibile e abbastanza appagante. Non si fa particolarmente ricordare, ma offre comunque una bella bevuta.
