Bottle. Golden amber body. Thin white head. Nose is bread, malt, fruit, alcohol. Taste is sweet. Dry finish. Tastes kind of cheap, a little bit like Gold Label. Can imagine would taste quite good ice cold in Italy (its principal export market) however.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Surprisingly tasteless ale without a profile or clarity. Works best to wash down the food.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 0.33l. Pours clear orange golden with thin tan-like head and lively bubbles. Aroma of caramel malt, vanilla, dried fruits, herbal hops and with light alcohol note. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, then followed sour grassy and refreshing fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, although some piney spiciness is felt, too. Aftertaste is strong hoppy. Medium to full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Good doggy beer...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Bottled 04/06/13. A classic brown coloured beer with a rocky white head and lace. A very very husky malty beer. Sweet strong and alcoholic. Old fashioned strong ale. A bit one dimensional. Not for me. Score 2.4
Subsequent rating scored 3.0. Average becomes 2.7

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from B&M Bargains; clear amber pour with big foamy white head, syrupy sweet aroma, taste is initially sweet very syrupy some maltiness that is struggling to break past the caramel sweetness only 89p so bang per buck is pretty damn good.

On tap @ Buskers, Perugia, Italy. Aroma: caramel, cereal and a bit of herbs, with some alcohol. Foam is short-lasting, but a bit of foam remains for longer. Amber color. Taste: quite bitter at first, but becomes sweeter as the beer warms up. Medium body, average carbonation.
