3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottiglia 50cl al Halley Bar (via S. Vincenzo, Genova, nei pressi della staz. Brignole), con un’insalata che aveva su lattuga, trevigiana, parmigiano, funghi porcini [sott’olio] e pomodori. Una märzen piuttosto convenzionale, ma gustosa e fragrante, nonostante alcune note metalliche nel sapore che detraggono dall’impressione complessiva. Si beve bene, nonostante la maltosità.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at Quinns during the painful Champions League final.
Copper brown with a thin white head. Burnt plastic and blu-tac completely take over and kill everything else underneath. To be blatantly honest, I don’t think the hidden malt and hops are up to the job anyway. Truly awful.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours golden with a large, creamy and slightly off-white head. Aroma has lots of pilsner malts, sweetness, light grassy notes and a touch of pine. Fine, light and a bit dry mouthfeel. Flavour starts of with some slight metallic off-flavours, though a good dose of sweetness covers it up quickly. Weak bitter hoppy finish. Refreshing and nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Warm golden with a nice head. The aroma is sweetish with notes of malt and candy sugar. The flavour is sweet, a bit too sweet, and it has notes of malt, wet grain, straw, hints of candy sugar and very light bitterness. The overall impression is a rather thin beer camouflaged by sweetness.
