sinte (500) - Udine, ITALY - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle 0.33L. Hazy amber-to-orange body with average, frothy, off-white head, mostly diminishing with little lacing. Moderate malty (caramel, grains) and light-to-moderate hoppy (citrus) aroma with light notes of spices. Moderate sweet flavour with light-to-moderate acidic character. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; average carbonation; light astringency in the finish.

In the glass has got an amber/light-brown colour with a good quantity of foam that remains in the time. The smell is sweet but very interesting with malts, caramel, a bit of fruits and herbs. In the palate the body is medium but creamy and so soft. Incredibly drinkable. Starts with sweet notes of caramel and malts, but after some seconds comes the hoppy touch with herbal notes and in the end/aftertaste again hops with a nice bitter and a bit bit bit of roasted flavour. Very good! MF brewery doesen’t wrong a shot!

Wolfbass (1101) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 15, 2011
Colore ambrato carico, con buona schiuma. Aroma caramelloso e punte erbacee. In bocca invece mi piace parecchio, buon corpo, molto pulita e soddisfacente con una generosa luppolatura che lascia un buon palato. Buona.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - SEP 2, 2010
Alla spina a SUPERBIRRA, Porto Antico di Genova; la classe di Fausto e Max viene fuori anche in questa ambrata, ineccepibilmente in stile e piacevole da bere.

Ungstrup (34322) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, dusty hops, and stored fruits, leading to a dry and lightly tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Excellent new label with big name and few decorative elements (a caravel, a guard holding a flag..), the main colour of the label and cap is dark orange; this fine ale pours a deep reddish amber, unclear but not hazy, with good creamy beige head. Nose is fruity and rich, with some hops but not dominating; a warm but very drinkable strong ale (7%ABV and unnoticeable), with British inspiration but marked Belgian character given by the yeast (Fausto daringly uses the same yeast in all of his beers, a Belgian kind usually suited for "tripel" ales). In the mouth this is pretty dry and easy going, a bit watery too I’d say, on the whole quite enjoyable but dangerously gulpable down. If you are not careful, last glasses (it’s a 75cl bottle, you cannot escape!) may be a little too yeasty, giving the bizarre contrast a rawer turn. Anyway, this is quite finely brewed even if not their best choice, and I always like to have a bottle in my cellar, as it is very good for pairing with grilled meat (and I find out precisely NOW that the label too suggests this pairing) and meat in general: no surprise this is also bottled and labeled for popular meat-based restaurant Maxelà (now a chain spread all over Italy, but native of Genoa). Long live Maltus Faber. Belin!
