3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp light amber coloured body with a tint of copper and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright assertive hops, some solid malt scents and a hint of apricot and sweetness. Medium-bodied; Relatively assertive hops, almost american-styled with an earthy and more robust flavour profile and some sweet caramel on the finish. Aftertaste shows a good balance of hops and malt with a little earthy and dry notes and a smooth beer. Overall, very nice to try and one of the first craft beers that I was able to sample in person at a local restaurant! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from A Salami Restaurant (I’ll check later for pictures) near La Scala in Milan, Italy on 17-February-2014 for €6,00.
