Birra leggera bionda di bassa fermentazione prodotta seguendo l’antica ricetta a base di riso, dal colore dorato, di gusto leggermente amaro a cui si associa un aroma di malto. Prodotta con malto d’orzo, riso, luppoli e la leggerissima acqua delle prealpi biellesi. Ben si sposa con primi piatti della tradizione italiana, pesce e carni bianche.

Si consiglia di consumare a temperatura intorno a 6/ 8 °C.

ogivlado (6634) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Pale yellow coloured, medium sized airy white head, weak grainy nose. Slightly malty, bready, notes of grain and corn and that’s it. Short and a bit acidic finish. Typical Italian macro lager.
Am I crazy or what...I really paid for this water almost 6€. Oh, yes I think I’m crazy...

Oakes (13879) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Hazy blonde, touch yeasty, light and refreshing as a relatively mellow unfiltered pale lager. Not bad for what it is.

Corny aroma, some paper too. Retronasals papery too. Tastes even more papery. Really bad.

csaso (1812) - Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle - big foamy head, pale straw color, pretty basic Euro lager aroma and flavor, sweet light malt, not much hops, nothing special by any means - the bottle makes it look fancy, but the beer inside it does not match the bottle

Bottle @ Ulfborg Winter Tasting Part ? (The Late) , 2011. Pours clear golden with a small off white head. Grain and hay. Watery and dry. No real off flavors. Pretty cheap feel though.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2011
Menabrea 3,5 Bottle, 75cl. A clear, pale golden one, almost headleass, just some white bubbles. Grainy, fruity nose with a touch of cardboard. Thin on the palate, as expected, quite dry. Grains and some hoppy flavors, as well as a touch of honey. Malty, fruity finish. A rather boring one. 111125
