Buskers Ecstasy of Gold

Buskers Beer
Brewed at L’Olmaia
Roma, Italy
5.5% Golden Ale/Blond Ale | 19 Ratings | 59 IBU |
E’ una birra dorata, con schiuma bianco panna e fitta. Appena la si porta al naso si sente subito l’utilizzo del luppolo, con sentori di frutta esotica, erba di campo ed agrumi. Una volta fatto il primo assaggio, si percepisce un buon corpo, un amaro secco, agrumato, erbaceo, che lascia la bocca pulita ed invita ad un secondo bicchiere.
E’ una birra da bere a pranzo, come aperitivo, durante il pomeriggio, insomma quando si ha voglia di qualcosa di buono, fresco e dissetante. Il nostro obiettivo era proprio questo, berne in quantità.
Il nome è un chiaro omaggio al più grande compositore italiano vivente, Ennio Morricone, che nel lontano 1966 compose questa grande canzone per la colonna sonora del film Il buono, il brutto e il cattivo di Sergio Leone.
It ’a golden beer, with a creamy white foam. As soon as you bring the nose you immediately feel the use of hops, with hints of tropical fruit, citrus and grass field. Once you’ve done the first taste, you feel a good body, a bitter dry, citrusy, herbaceous, that leaves the mouth clean and invites a second glass. It’s a beer to drink at lunch, as an aperitif, during the afternoon, in short, when you feel like something good, cool and refreshing.Our goal was just that, to drink in quantity. The name is a clear tribute to the greatest living Italian composer Ennio Morricone, who in 1966 wrote this great song for the soundtrack of the film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly by Sergio Leone.
