3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dark amber beer with a long lasting beige head
Aroma is dominated by some spicy hoppiness
Medium-bodied, low bitterness and a pretty long spicy finish. Interesting to try and checking off your list, not a beer I would recommend.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beautiful bottle promising a ’birra rossa’, which can be anything from an amber lager to a Belgian amber ale. Cheers Stefan! I do not see any mention of spices being used, so I wonder why this is listed as a spice ale here... Thick and regular, coarse, frothy, off-white head over a deep peach blonde beer - clearly not red, not even truly amber, hazy. Weakish aroma of iron, honey, old cookies, vague peanuts, straw, some peach. Spritzy, minerally onset with tingling, lightly souring carbo, overcarbonated even distracting from the actual taste, which is not very impressive to begin with: restrained apricot and apple fruitiness, thinnish body, some lightly honeyish and caramelly maltiness, light sourishness in the finish (perhaps the onset of an infection?) with a touch of dried orange peel and a light, bland, faint leafy hoppiness, not bittering enough. In all, dull and bland, the Italian craft beer movement has spawned many more impressive beers than this.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear dark red brown with a decent foam layer. The smell is Malty with apple flavors. The taste however is malty and with foul sourish apple flavors. The aftertaste has an especially bad touch and is quite unpleasant. I wouldn’t recommend this beer, but since the blond beer from the same brewery is really good, it might be that my beer was infected.

500ml bottle at Pizza DOC in Melbourne. It is a lightly spiced red ale with caramel and orange peel notes. Lightish hop finish. Medium body and carbonation. Goes down well with the excellent pizzas served at this restaurant.
