Douberd (2223) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, into a big tulip, ABV 5% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, with little activity in it, and a thick white head sitting on top, two fingers tall and with very good retention. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma of an average lager, with malts and some straw, I am getting some salt (?) too. Taste is very sweet, very malty with light metallic notes. Not much more in this one, the malts are dominating. Being used to the greek sweet lagers this doesn’t annoy me that much, at least at first. Thin body, average carbonation. Actually I don’t find it bad at all, it may even had scored higher on a warmer and sunnier day.

Typical Italian Menabrea maltiness. Not pleasant. This really is not a good lager.
