2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a white head. The aroma has strong notes of ginger on a malty and citrusy back ground. The flavor is sweet with notes of ginger, wheat, yeast, and some malt, leading to a dry ginger finish.

Bottle from Det Gode Brygg, Sandnes. Pours hazy golden, small creamy white head. Aroma is very spicy, herbal and some unpleasant notes as well. Taste is like cold strong herbal tea, too much and very unbalanced.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. A hazy one, golden in color and with a white head of moderate size. The aroma has lots of soap, guess it’s the lavender. Way too much of it. Some spiced notes and citrus hints. Rather herbal and spiced flavor too, with lots and lots of lavender, making it feel soap tasting. Medium to thin body, soft carbonation. Lasting soapy, flowery finish with some bready maltyness. Sure not a beer I could finish. 150124

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Unclear yellow body with a medium sized white head. Aroma is floral, some citric fruit, hint of lemon, herbs and rather dominating lavender. Flavor is quite light pale malt, low bitterness and probably fooling me off a lot with the strong aroma. Anyway my notes says flowers, herbs, citric, ginger, lavender and coriander with low bitterness. Not very complex really, but not bad either – quite interesting in a way, an aroma based flavor somehow I think. Maybe I would by it again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui during October’s “Beer Festival” promotion.
Cloudy hazy pale muddy straw with some yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds;
Moderate sticky lacing and faint trace of carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of light malt, with strong perfume, flower petals, nectar, figs, grapes skin, grapes soda, sugar, light yeast and very light lemon; Very light sweet taste of thin Ale malt, with light dark fruits, floral petals, fairly light perfumes, molasses, Middle Eastern spices, light carbo, light yeast, lemon and moderate grass; Light body. Thin palate; Mouth feel is strongly flwery and perfume-like, gimme some fond memory of Orval but this is all in a light malt base. No wheat tartness, light sweetness. the perfumey light dark-fruit background is quite pleasant enough. Some Middle Eastern food spice here but not as prominent as 961’s Lebanese Pale Ale. Overall taste is like a perfumed soda. Fair enough… Hoppiness is light lemon in nose, and light grass in taste. Fiarly light but notable bitterness for a very abrupt light finish; Quite dry after taste. Flowery and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: Now this one is more sensible and tasty than the previously Maiella beers I’ve had, but it still suffers from a lack of carbo despite being bottle conditioned. The chamomile-theme floral and perfume aroma and taste brush the light beer base pretty well, and more carbo will definitely lift up this one to better respectability. Still, quite a decent one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very complex beer. Around 4%. It has a tipical floreal taste, expecially of lavanda, but is balanced with a delicate aroma of citrus fruits and local wheats. Perfect for slow food.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Finger of foam that went quickly, slightly hazy yellow color. Lots of flowery and sweet honey notes in the aroma which very much continue to the flavor, hibiscous definitely. Fizzy carbonation and a light body. Interesting to try it, but would not need to again.
