yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2013
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazyorange with a small white head. Aroma is roasted malty, light caramelish. Fruity and caramelish. Brew mash, bitter and light toasted malty into the finish.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2009
Not sure I agree with the style classification but otherwise, the other description’s are close. Dark brown color. An aroma of malt and fruit. Flavor has more fruit and sugar, and just a little sourness.

thebeertourist (4647) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Mahogny with a creamy beige head. Fruity caramel aroma. Complex spicy fruit flavours, somewhat sweet. Drinkable, if a bit too spicy and sweet. Dry aftertaste.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Pours a mahogony color from the tap with a creamy tan head. Smells of tea and maple, yet unexpectedly sour in flavor. Not tasty at all, as if the water was soapy when this was brewed. Notes of unripe peach and tart cherry. More ambitious than enjoyable, unfortunately.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Caramel sweetness overrides the dry yeastiness and whatever hops may have been used in this amateurish sweet brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the opaque cola-like reddish brown.
-The yeasty nose is quite dusty.
-Carbonation is prickly and clashes with the lumpy sweetness.
-Cherry fruitiness roams within.
-This is far from balanced, and I can’t even see a sweet-toothed beer lover having a hankering for it.
-The two beers I had from them point towards something fishy...Cheap ingredients? Improper brewing methods? Whatever it is, it makes Il Bovaro beers a lot less interesting than its Tuscan compatriots.

On tap at brewpub.

Comments: Rather toasty, generic munich malts with shy biscuity and bready flavours, but also a fair dose of acetaldehyde – green apple.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
Cloudy brown-amber color; creamy head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Better body structure than the others, some malt; more roasted malt and caramel, but not enough harmonious nor characteristic.
