Lele (433) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 5, 2016
ASPETTO: ambrato molto chiaro, limpido. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e persistente. AROMA: intenso e gradevolissimo. Forte floreale, fruttato (soprattutto arancio), leggero erbaceo. GUSTO: all’attacco è inizialmente dolce, ma solo per un attimo, per poi far subito comparire un intenso amaro che continua nel lungo e intenso finale. Carbonizzazione medio/bassa, corpo leggero. Lascia la bocca molto secca, una birra quasi astringente. Meglio al naso che in bocca, in quanto si presenta decisamente monocorde.
