3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (labeled Birra Magalotti 1845 Bock). Light orange with a dense white head. Quite high bead. Light malt aroma with some oranges. Tastes sweet and rather metallic at first. Finishes dry and fairly bitter. Holds the alcohol very well. There’s real complexity hiding there too - earthy stickiness. Much better than the first few sips suggest.

Acquistata come Magalotti 1845 Bock, ma ratebeer mi rimanda qui, sarà davvero la stessa birra. sull’etichetta schloss eggenberg è riportato, bene un indizio in più. perchè mai allora ci tengono a dire sia di Terni? mah!
Versa color oro, con una schiuma poco persistenze, aroma fresco e fruttato, al palato è dolce, quasi vaniglia all’inizo, poi tende all’amaro che permane nel retrogusto. di corpo medio.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I can se how this beer languishes in the 36th percentil at 2.92 as it does look like, at least at first glance, to be a souped up lager with a big dose of malt and alcohol. But, the sweet malt action is very well crafted and the slippery palate structure, not doubt helped in part through the alchol, is really quite attractive. The flavours almost stray in Belgian Ale territory with pongy candied malts. Nice.
