330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, foamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Expressionless malt aroma with a strawy touch. Taste is monotonous, minimally sweet malty, some biscuit, a very cautious peppery touch, prickling bitter hoppy overtones; light body.

Pours a golden straw yellow. Very very malty making it a bit on the sweet side. Nothing special at all but not on the ommercial side either.

Gentle and refined, but not boring at all. It isn’t that complex but it tastes of quality. Nice thick head. Great colour. Butterscotch flavours. Rounded mellow ending.

Bottled 330ml. -Golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, corn and cereals in the nose. Just discreet hint of spices in rather ordinary beer. Weak hoppy, corn and cereals with watery finish. For Italian lager let’s say ok .

THE Sour and Saison tasting - a rogue entry! Hazy gold beer, big pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Fresh malt, fairly papery - a little mild fruits. On the cusp this one - initially reaction was it would be a stinker but I warmed to it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ THE Sour Tasting. Cheers to Ken for sneaking this bad boy into the lineup! The pour’s deep gold with a medium white head. The nose is cardboard, some cereal grain, mild sweet malts and plenty o’ white bread. The taste is peach-stained cardboard, some stale cornbread. Not much else, quite sweet and a bit syrupy. The body’s medium, the carbonation’s prickly. Overall, not one to revisit.

Bottle at THE Sour and Saison Tasting. Many thanks to Kenneth for this one. Pours clear gold with a light, white foam head. Big bready malt nose. Medium sweet flavor with light biscuits and toasty sugars, some doughy bread. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary, bready malt finish with mild biscuits, cereal. Very pleasant - if basic - beer.
