IvanParenti (2) - ITALY - DEC 17, 2014 does not count
Amber color, very nice white head. Mostly hops in the aroma, they give a nice herbs smell. Some dark honey aroma is also present. Taste: sweet at first, minor sourness, then good hop bitterness in the end. Medium body, warm feeling in the mouth.

bartlebier (1978) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
0,2L draught sample@Internationales Bierdorf, Tettnanger Hopfenwandertag 2014. Pours honey amber, none too viscous, nor fuming in aroma: caramel, wild honey. Easily drinkable, well balanced, with some unusual exotic fruit notes and again that elegant, pillowy BI yeast profile. Hence much more of a pleasure to down than many a residual sugar-drowned DE heller Bock.

Draught @ Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà, Roma. September 2013. Hazy amber beer with a big head. Aroma has caramel malts with hops. Sweetish and fruity flavour is caramel and grainy malts. Quite nice, decently hoppy bock.
