COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra celebrativa del primo anniversario della nascita del birrificio, il 5 maggio.
I birrai hanno realizzato una birra bionda dal colore giallo paglierino, con schiuma bianca abbondante e aderente. Il profumo è di luppolo fresco, con note maltate seguite da note di agrumi e frutta esotica. In bocca si possono apprezzare le gradevoli note mielate date dai malti, seguite da sensazioni fruttate inebrianti! Birra fresca, dissetante ed estremamente beverina.

Bov (9552) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 26, 2014
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - pours a cloudy orange beer with a solid and long lasting white foam; fair and fresh grapefruity hoppiness, hints of pineapples and oranges; medium-bodied, light sourish, lively and tasty palate, decently bitter and with a long hoppy finish of yellow fruits - fresh, charming and very good

Bevuta in bottiglia, ottimo prodotto. Bel colore dorato, schiuma bella, bianca e persistente. Profumi di miele e frutta. Corpo leggero, gusto molto rotondo, con sentori di miele e frutta anche in bocca. Lungo finale amaro molto gradevole.

Veramente una buona birra, con una luppolatura esotica e fruttata molto intensa e accattivante, una buona base maltata e un amaro deciso e persistente. Si apprezzano tutte le sfumature durante la bevuta e il gusto lascia il palato sedotto e sicuramente soddisfatto. Buona!

biereflaneuse (22) - Certaldo, ITALY - AUG 22, 2013
In modernist times I believe this might be an Italian "classic"; Lùmina was originally an anniversary brew, but has since grown in the heart of fans and in the national craft beer world; currently, this is one of the best, least pretentious American pale ales brewed in the country, and that’s what makes it a classic. Birrificio Civale also tries to keep a low profile, situated in a small village in the Padan area. This is surely dry-hopped with simcoe, maybe also cascade. A pretty tasty one.

FatPhil (9362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 23, 2013
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki)
Lovely aroma on pouring, citrussty and tropical fruits. Unsurprisingly, in the glass it’s just as aromasome. Peachy colour, large tight off-white head. Full, but very uplifting palate. Tons of hoppy retronasals fill the nose - packed full of grassy citrussy hops. Lovely balance, a nice sweet graininess doesn’t let the hops completely dominate. But they do try, they’re all over the mouth. A beatuful little resiny drying tingle. And what great attenuation too. Possibly one of the best "APA"s I’ve had, I’d never put a work of art like this in that category, which is normally the home of fat flabby sweet stodgy messes.

oh6gdx (20387) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottled@HBF2013. (Thanks to Rauno, I recall). Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour with a small white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, floral, grassy and some mild caramel and bready malts. Flavour is fruity and floral with a quite crispy bready and caramelly maltyness. Balanced, and quite nicely bodied APA.

RexTalionis (2457) - FINLAND - APR 20, 2013
Bottled. Pours pale golden in color with a small whitish head. Fruity citrus, some lemon juicyness, it’s a very smooth aroma. Very fruity indeed. Lemon juicyness with some grapefruit bitterness in taste. Very refreshing. I do like the fruity citrus in aftertaste.

Ibrew2or3 (6926) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle courtesy of sebletitje, thanks Sebastian! The 33cl bottle pours with a clear gold body supporting a tall off white head of foam. The aroma is tart and citrusy and a little yeasty with tangelo, lemon and apple. The taste is hoppy and refreshing. I get a mix of malt sweetened tangerine and clementine with a fair amount of bitter hops. To midway the hop bitterness increases some until the malt sweetness catches up making for a nice citrus hop flavor finish. This is light crisp and refreshing as well as packed with flavorful hops. Very nice Pale.
