4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark red, with a tiny head (Most probably because of the glass). Aroma of fresh hops, some caramel from the malt, citrus, floral tones.
Nice smooth palate, goes down easy. Flavour of green, spicy, floral hops, with a nice smooth bitterness and maltyness to it. Medium bodied. Awesome amber-ale!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a well-retained, sticky off-white head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma picked up soft bread and fruity malts with more fruit and grassy hops around.. soft and entirely pleasant. The flavor found similar stuff.. bread and biscuity malts at the core, with light grass, pine, and grapefruit bitterness around.. light earth and citrus bitterness over biscuity malt on the crisp finish. Light-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. very dry.. not as bitter as expected, but it worked.

Brainstorming to find jokes about "what smells good but doesn't taste good" is more interesting than this beer.

Aroma: Quite unique. Very aromatic, like olives and citrus fruit and cream and sour cherries and peach and honey, among other stuff.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium body. Some carbonation.
Taste: Gently but firmly sweet, like strawberry candy and honey. A tiny bit of sourness on the tongue, too.
Finish: Ends tart, spicy and dry.
Overall: Superb, stuff. Very drinkable. Very appetizing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(12oz bottle from Provisions. Batch 329). Pours a clear amber-red color with pillowing eggshell head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma has some resin, pine, hard candy, pumpernickel. Taste is sweet malts with some sharp bitterness that starts up front and moves to the back of the throat. Lighter bodied with a somewhat dry, but balanced finish. Nothing earth shattering in these days of extreme beers, but something that I’d consider sessioning if it were available at a reasonable price.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ambrata. Aroma floreale, luppolato con qualcosa di conifera e di agrume e una venatura di uva. Al gusto si presenta subito amaricante, ma mai esageratamente, con un ventaglio di luppoli molto ampio. Pompelmo, resina e erba sono i sentori che si notano di più. Finale pulito e prolungato. Rinfresca e costringe a compiere il sorso successivo.
