3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bir & Fud Bottega, Roma. A bit hazy amber beer with a big, frothy, white head. Good malty aroma with piny hops. Flavour is sweetish caramel malts and piney and grapey hops. Quite fruity (peach) as well. Medium bitterness and carbonation. I managed to pour some of the yeast in the glass too so this might have been fresher without.

Al naso aroma esplosivo di luppolo, frutta esotica e agrumato, pungente, con note erbacee. In bocca è amara lunga e persistente, con un finale leggermente astringente, di radice. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione corretta. Well done Mirko!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. A hazy dark golden to pale amber beer, with a large, frothy, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), moderately to heavily hoppy (grapefruit, pine needles, flowers, resin), with notes of orange, tangerine, pineapple. lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, average/lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate to heavy bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Is that good! The freshness definately helps, but this one’s also perfectly crafted... Hugely fruity aroma, huge but never scraping bitterness, palate cleansing to the contrary. Worth a try and more...
