rossa media schiuma non molto profumata prevale il cerale e le note tostate in bocca poco corpo ma con un netto e piacevole sentore di tostato

Sampled at the LCBO Summerhill Beer Festival, Toronto ON. Poured with a heavy hand, that was a definite upside to this particular sample. The first cream ale Iíve ever tried.. not real eager to go back. Kind of a watered-down Guinness with a hint of Smithwicks.

500ml widget can. thick nitro head. nice red color. not much going on with the aroma, just a big thick foam. flavour is pretty weak, and thin, and quite bitter in the finish. meh, pretty middle of the road on this one.

robforbes (2134) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2007
had this on draft in Bahrain 7/10 pours dark, reddish brown, creamy with a 1 finger head that sticks to the side of the glass smells of nuts, spice and hops, good carbination, a small sour smell to it. tastes smooth and creamy, nuts, and slightly bitter, dry on the back of the mouth

Color amber, with a creamy head. The aroma is malty, weak. The flavor reminds the yeast, and a little smoked (toasts). The hop is weak, ultimately the bitterness almost does not feel. (Hop of bad quality probably?). This beer has some strange attachť!. The body is average, rather watery. (Probably it has too much nitrogen). I am not going to say any more.

Nitro-head settled as a creamy, beige, one-finger cap after a quick cascade revealed a deep, clear, rusty-copper body beneath. Muted aroma, yet some dry, toasty malts surface. Flavor finds low malts, low bitters and hints of sweetness at times, but this is mostly just mild and quenching. More "dry" than "fluffy". Touches of lemon and honey add diversity.

cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
Another British ale that just didnít please my palate (yet my friends tell me that someday, my ale will come!). This beer has a darker colour than I normally like (I prefer golden nectars) and a weak aroma. It went down very smooth however. It felt thick in the mouth, very little carbonation. The flavour was alright, very malty.

Bottle. Pours a nice amber-red color. Fair lasting medium sized white head. Toasty malty and sweet aroma. Bit thin mouthfeel. Sweet flavour with a nice toasted maltiness bit bready and with a pleasant bitterness. It has a bitter toastish aftertaste.

Dark reddish in colour and holds a thin creamy white head untill the end. Average carbonation. Medium bodied and very smooth with a slightly dry bitterness in the finish. Flavour, fairly sweet but no strong flavours. Very nice. (330ml can)

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2007
330 ml can with nitroí widget - reddish colour with a very creamy head. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Fair lacing. Very smooth with a sweet malty flavour, slightly acidic, a bit of apple, and a lightly bitter finish. Quite a nice drop.
