3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Amber color. Medium head. Good hoppy aroma with lots of fruit and decent malt as well. Rather sweet flavor, more than usual for the type. Good fruit and hops as well, though. A touch of honey and a bit nutty too. Not as dry as the good English types. Some citrus as well. Good hop finish, quite bitter. Really good, though a touch below the top stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Pub 38 (Malgrate, Lecco). Huge white and lasting head, deep and clear amber colour. Sweeter than expected, both aroma and flavor. Caramel and malty sweetness in the nose, fruity and just hins of hops. The flavor is even sweeter, too much for me, caramel and buttery. Medium body and a spicy but creamy mothfeel.
