2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at One Pint Pub Italian weeks ’10) This was really clean one compared to martellina. Still, I didn’t like this. There was some harshness which was off-putting. There was potential for better beer: nice maltiness, some hops and quite fitting bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Mostodolce, Florence. Pours reddish amber with a lasting beige head. Surprisingly hoppy nose of spice, citrus and grassy notes. Flavour is caramel, citrus, spice and grassy hops. Tastes fresh from the tap. Moderate bitterness. A touch cloying in the finish. This has potential - it’s actually quite good.

Again some milk and cereal mealiness, nuthusk, malted milk, sup of coffee dregs, full hop bitterness persisting long after swallow, chocolate wafer, grapefruit, soil. Very alive, very Inglese. Solid.

Birra dell’Anno Awards 2007, Milan.
Hazy amber colour with off-white head. Rich fruity aroma, with earthy hops plus a blanket of yeast. Slight, slight spicy flavour from Mûnich/Vienna malt with big chewy mouthfeel, yet a bit chalky and raw(questionable fermenting?). Alcohol shows off in taste and in bitterness. Pretty much flavouring hops here.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at "Salone della Birra Artigianale 2007" - Milan.
Intense reddish clearly color with amber and dark orange reflex, lightly hazy with a light fizz. Compact head of short duration. Lightly spiced aromas with notes of withered grape and braced mlat. Rather alcoholic and bitterish taste and with barren final of medium persistence.

Draught at Salone Della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità 2007, Milan
Hazy amber color. Malty and with some caramel flavors, and a cereal touch. Maybe as a beer it’s not the best, but it has some originality and it’s quite pleasant. Quite sweet too.

On draught at Pasturana Artebirra 2006, I just remember an amber lager of acceptable body, more a Vienna than a bock - maybe I am wrong but I think it was not an ale.
