3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from 750mL bottle at Lush Roscoe, this one is a bit of a gusher. Pours amber orange with a medium off-white head that leaves nice lace on the side of the glass. Nose of light banana bread with some malt and a rye characteristic as well. There is some unexpected tartness on the palate with everything else fairly balanced between hops, malt, and yeast. Body is medium with light carbonation and a medium balanced finish.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2010 Malty sweet aroma. Orange-red color. Malt flavor seems darker than the color would indicate. Very carbonated mouth feel. Overall a very pleasant drinking beer. Way, way, better than ho-hum, but not an "Oh My GOD!" beer.

OK for the record, I am using the same rating for three of their beers. The diference being, one was dark red, one was amber and one was dark brown. Beautiful bottle, too bad points could not be awarded for packaging these guys would fair much better. Nose has no noticable hop character and a very strange house yeast, almost like they added candy sugar, but not as sweet. The Rossa was by far the most carbonated of the bunch. A touch of cherries and earthiness, but again no real hop prescene to balance thngs out. Quick fading finish. The alcohol is hidden very welll, as is any real character. Not sure what to make of this other than we had a tasting with six people and not one bottle was emptied by the end of the tasting, but no one was really offended.

O la bottiglia era guasta, oppure questa birra non è decisamente una gran trovata; enorme sentore metallico, poco luppolo, poco malto, quasi soltanto metallo. Difficile finirla, poi avevamo magnato i wurstel alla valdostana..
