3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It forms a big, dense, off-white head over a semi-clear golden body. Sugar, hops and pale malts in the faintly spiced aroma. The alcohol isn’t missing either. In the flavor there’s sugars, hops, a touch of spices, a solid dose of fruityness and some bitterness. Full body, smooth, warming and nicely carbonated. More bitter in the end than initially. Overall, a quite pleasant one, although a bit on the sweet side. 120107

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 8.8%. Pouring away and wondering where the head was that VBS spoke of when suddenly I was gulping foam to preserve the beer. The foam was tasty hops and alcohol. Beer is gold under the carved white foam. Aroma is spice forward, alcohol and some spice. Aggressive upfront flavour. Plenty of peppery hops. A nectarine note blended nicely with some hops and a hint of peanut oil.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
iPhone.... praying the network is fixed soon. Pretty decent gold with endless microscopic sediment, big ass white cap then stays and dirties. Candy lemon nose, orange, a light spice cake, bit perfumy, smells quite delectable on deep snorts. Very drinkable, soft, fruity and soothing. Oranges and dull lemon, excellent sweet spice, something else.. I drank it to quick. Needed more spice.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden color with about 3 fingers of white head with good retention that settles to some really nice lacing. Aroma is very mild citrus. Taste is a nice malty sweetness with some citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Medium to heavy body and moderate carbonation leaving a pleasant feeling on the tongue. A pretty tasty brew.

Color dorato torbo, parecchi lieviti in sospensione, schiuma compatta e persistente. Al naso è vivace, con il candito in netta prevalenza, ed un leggero iniziale esotico. In bocca prevale ancora il dolce, lasciando poi a fine corsa un tocco di calore. Nasconde molto bene gli 8,8%.
