COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La birra Morgana è una birra artigianale non filtrata (quindi sul fondo della bottiglia troveremo un notevole sedimento), non pastorizzata (di conseguenza non subisce quel trattamento termico che rende "sterile" la birra, per cui i principi attivi restano vivi), ed è una birra ad alta fermentazione; cio’ significa che andiamo ad utilizzare un lievito che lavora ad alte temperature (circa 20 C°.), contrariamente alla stragrande maggioranza delle birre che sono a bassa fermentazione, perchè pensiamo che cosi facendo possano essere esaltati i profumi e gli aromi. Le varietà di luppolo utilizzate (Hallertauer o Tettnang tedesco per l’amaro, ed il Saaz ceco per il profumo), variano sensibilmente di volta in volta, anche a seconda delle stagioni. L’ esigua quantità prodotta per ogni cotta, e l’ utilizzo di un impianto quasi completamente a controllo manuale, ne fanno un prodotto suscettibile a leggere ma molteplici variabili. Dopo la fermentazione primaria, viene imbottigliata con una piccola aggiunta di zucchero, per far ripartire la fermentazione secondaria, in questa fase si ha la formazione della classica gasatura naturale e la cosiddetta presa di spuma. Questo processo di rifermentazione continua con il passare dei giorni, in maniera sempre piu’ lenta, da cio’ si intuisce che anche il gusto, piu’ passa il tempo e piu’ si evolve. Tutti i fattori precedentemente elencati possono quindi dare origine a differenze tra un lotto di produzione e l’altro. Queste differenze devono essere considerate come una caratteristica della Morgana Birra col fondo, della sua genuinità ed artigianalità.

mjs (4640) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2011
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma was mild and quite fruity. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, hops, yeast, malts, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. There was quite a lot of yeast in the bottle. Pouring small amount of the yeast changed the taste a bit rubbery. Otherwise quite nice brew. Just beware the yeast while drinking this.
