3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 750 ml, bought in Italy as iCavalieri Birra Doppio Malto bionda non filtrata. Nice looking bottle, nice label too and interesting combintion of a crown cap and a swing top. Poured into a snifter at home. ABV 7.5%
Pours a beer with an intense golden yellow colour, lightly hazy, with a couple of bubbles in the glass rising to the top every now and then. Two fingers of a snow white head, thick and creamy, with good retention, leaving heavy lacing around the glass as it collapses.
Aroma is fruity, lightly hoppy, clean malts, hints of alcohol coming from the back, maybe a bit of honey now that it’s mentioned.
Nice hoppy taste, nothing extreme but on the contrary very easy drinking, with fruity notes again traceable, lots of malts and some alcohol, warming me up. Mild bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, dry enough on the palate.
