2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled GBBF 09. A hazy light amber coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma has as hint of spice but not much else. The taste has some bitterness but again a lot of nothingness. Pretty poor and dull.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at GBBF ’09. Many thanks to harrisoni for a chance to enjoy this fascinating beer. Gold. Odd hoppy aroma of grapefruit and ginger which seems typical of Italian craft brewing. And that goes for the taste: an unusual, complex, indeterminate melange that is more interesting than appealing.

Draft. A hazy amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma is malty and hoppy combined with a herbal note. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and a weird hop profile and some herbs, leading to a dry finish.
