3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Bronze with a medium head that took some time to dissipate. Slightly hoppy with a bitter finnish.Pleasant but not outstanding although
this is one of the craft breweries that are making people look at Italian beer in a new light.

Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Murky amber pour with a fast fading white head. Nose had a little spice, but pretty muted. Some dusty hop sweet malt and citrus in the flavour. Dryish bitter finish. Ok but largely forgettable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Birra dal colore giallo opaco con schiuma di media persistenza. Al naso chiari sentori di luppolo e malto. Sapore intenso e ben bilanciato. Retrogusto leggermente amaro ma molto piacevole. Birra leggera e di facile beva in queste calde sere d’estate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice session ale. Hoppy aroma that gives way to a slightly thin mouthfeel and short taste. It’s an APA but not in the SN mold, more of a summer pale. This would work well outside, and at 4.7, you can drink it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light hazy copper golden body with firm, rocky white head that’s not going anywhere. Nice! Fresh pine aroma, not overly powerful. Crusty bread, fresh hops and a soft wheat base. Quite balanced still. Dry palate, pungent bitterness that’s only mildly contrasted by the fairly high carbonation. Ending is only bitter, and very drinkable for me. Recommended drinking temperature was 4°C on the bottle and it actually isn’t too cold to still get flavours going. Even more surprising with this light body and low abv. Bit of a surprise for me from this unknown brewer. Not super complex but very quaffable. (75cl bottle, somewhat expensive)
