A well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness coming through from the aromatic yeasts used in its production. 11.8P

PapaVillum (591) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2014
33 cl/330 ml, flaske, 5,0 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 26. februar 2014. Kobberfarvet og klar italiensk Amber Ale med flygtigt offwhite-farvet skumtop, som går fra ca. 2 cm til knap 1/2 cm tykkelse. Lettere sødlig duft, men også duft af ristet malt. Dejlig, lidt fyldig smag, trods det beskedne alkoholindhold. Ikke dyb og fyldig, men beskeden rund smag. Bitterheden dominerer, men en god blid sødme følger med. Samtidig er der friskhed i billedet. En udmærket øl, når man vil have lidt let drikkeligt med lidt mere smag end en pilsner.

12oz Bottle. Pours nice amber color with a quick dispersing head. Toffee aroma. Not much in the taste department. But not bad either

"Menabrea" is a name famed among Italian beer lovers for providing one of the few examples of drinkable eurolager. This is not necessarily true for the main product, but the "ambrata" can still be a good example of an industrial Vienna lager. The sweetness is dominating but it is anyway not unpleasant.

sebletitje (7235) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2013
Bouteille 33cl @ un resto à Ferrara. Orangée-ambrée, col fin beige. Arôme est malté, caramel, léger houblonné noble mais laissant la part belle aux malts. Palais est aussi malté assez basique cara pâle et malt vienna avec une amertume procurant une fine touche fleuri pour une effervescence moyenne. Rien de bien spécial et typique de ces birre doppio malto.

Faint fruity aroma, pours a clear gold with a tiny white head. A bit thin and watery. Not my beer.
