3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Molly Malone, Nebbiuno (NO) Italy. Served nicely, which is a rarity among italian irish-style pubs, pours a clear light amber colour, with a thick and lasting off-white head. Aroma of caramel with a little earthiness and spiciness from the hops, Very sweet, nice body, with a little bitterness to give balance, Soft carbonation, oily body, quite pleasant for a regular beer. The aftertaste lingered around for a while, with the characteristic earthiness. To me, this is one of the best products from the big industry (never tried it from the bottle, Iíve been told itís very different, and worse). Drinkable enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from Carrefour, Udine. Pours small frothy head. Copper dark blond colour. Aroma of boiled sweets and cough medicine. Taste is thick, full bodied syrupy alcohol with pronounced orange and cherry notes. Very light carbonation. Very sweet and very malty. Finish is bitter and lingering, with the hops giving a lasting spiciness. A nice strong ale but a tad too sweet for my liking.
