3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,75l from supermarket in Trento for 8 eur as Mastri Birrai Umbri Selezione 42.
Brown to dark ruby body, medium off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits (especially blackberries), caramel, little toasty, touch of strawberries, bit yeasty and some like roasted beans. Taste is dry with some sligthly malty sweetness in the base. Dark fruits again, caramel, licorice, tofee. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, nice fresh for this ABV content.
Very nice brown ale, but I can’t recognize lentils in taste. And bottle is such beautifull and luxury. I’m glad that the content is also very good, not just cover.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red brown color, cloudy. Medium beige head. Thin aroma, thin taste and very thin palate. Watery, but without bad aftertaste, If you look for completely neutral beer with no qualities, but very expensive because of luxury bottle and fraud producer, than this is the beer for you. I repeat, the fraud is not complete, because it is drinkable. But, probably you will buy it only once for that money.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 750ml bottle poured in a mug.
A: Pours a dark amber to brown clear color. Small beige head with small retention with no lacings formed or left.
S: Very biscuity. Notes of roastes malts and ashes. Weird
T: Malty, biscuity and ashy. Light bitter finish.
M: Light body and low carbonation.
O: Disgusting for a beer that comes in a quite nice bottle. In the end, I have the impression that it was infected or something. I’ll try it again at my next holidays in Italy.
