ogivlado (6359) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb as Menabrea Bock. Cola coloured, medium sized pale beige head, caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, notes of dog food and metal with hint of dried fruits and alcohol. Weak in hops, thin overall...better than typical Menabrea brew but still far from good.

nassoro (37) - Neuchatel, SWITZERLAND - APR 13, 2015
Quite a nice bock. Great color, good maltiness, minimal head. doesn’t taste like 7.5%, but far from watery. Worth trying. Got at a gelato/pastry shop in Vernazza.

sankara (35) - Pisa, ITALY - SEP 7, 2014
Una bock onesta. Scarsa all’olfatto, il dolciasrto del malto, con note caramellate, ben si evidenzia. Carbonatazione moderata e corpo medio (avrei preferito qualcosa di piů). Finale abbastanza modesto, il sapore non č il suo forte. Per una birra industriale, che si compra al supermercato, puň risultare quantomeno passabile. ----- A bock honest. Poor sense of smell, the dolciasrto malt, with caramel notes, is well noted. Moderate carbonation and medium body (I would have preferred something more). Final sufficiently small, the taste is not his forte. For an industrial beer, you buy at the supermarket, it may be at least passable.

Those italians are some rascals... pours a light tan .. light wispy weak wristed foam .. . light annoying malts and pancake syrup .. . this beer needs thicker glasses, not enjoyable .. . . that white powder on the table looks like a good time. its bisquick.
