[Rerate] Recently brewed with top fermenting yeast. Hazy dark amber colour, with a generous head, reducing to a thin collar, persistent. Very good malt and hop aromas and flavours, but with a metallic note, which lowers a bit the final evaluation. Final very strong and good as usual.
[16-05-2002, 5-5-7-4-14] Red-amber ’lager’. Ordinary aroma. Good roasted barley; dryer than the other beers by the same brewery; the balance is reached in the end. Dry-bitter palate, quite strong.
