2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from COOP in Colle di val d’Elsa. The beer is amber colored and pours a stable cream colored head, with nice carbonation.
The aroma is fruity and sweet, with tones of caramel, dark fruits and in the background some roasted malts.
The taste is light bodied and light sweet, with tones from the aroma. Further quiet watery texture.
The finish is a little dry, light bitter and long.
Better than the average beer in Italy, but the bottle (prosecco like) was nicer than the beer.

500ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Looks like they’ve added caramel colouring to a pale lager. Smells identical to they crappy papery pale lager. Watery palate, pleasant carbonation. The sweetness of the caramel covers the paperiness a bit, bit it’s still there. Finish a little dry. Not a disaster, but not living up to the fanciness of the bottle.
