2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle purchases in Cesana, Italy. Colour: Mostly yellow with small hint of gold and a medium head. Nose: metallic blast settling into sweet corn, abundant yeast and vanilla tannins. Not bad after the initial sniff. Taste: Quite different then the nose - slightly bitter-floral and some distinct sour hops, peach-like fruit mid-palate and custard-sweet finish with a dying appearence of more hops. Complicated but not anywhere near perfectly crafted. Very fizzy mouth-feel.

Bottle served in a lager glass. Chardonnay in color with a big fluffy white head. Nose is bright and lightly malted. Flavor is similar. Light-medium body, creamy texture, good carbonation and a dry finish. Good pale lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, modest spicy-hoppy, a bit grasy. Finish well balanced, still mild. Surprisingly good.
Thanks to my friends Fiene and Marcel for this one!

Little head. Great aroma and flavor. Aftertaste was incredible and it just sat on the palate for several minutes after a drink. Now I just have to find it.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - typical industrial macrobrew but it’s a lot better than some of the other Italian beers, good for washing down pizza or watching a game.
