Bottle @ Haus Garden gallarate. Ambrato carico, velata, con schiuma beige fine, mediamente persistente. Aroma abbastanza intenso, agrumato, caramello e zucchero di canna, floreale da luppolo. Gusto amabile all’ingresso, di caramello, poi leggermente amaro il finale , sia da tostatura che da luppolo. leggermente spigolosa, di consistenza appiccicosa, abbastanza equilibrata, non molto calda. Tuttosommato armonica.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.
A: Pours an absolutely clear copper color forming a medium creamy and thin bubbled beige head. Medium retention and quite a lot of spotty, lingering and a bit soapy lacings formed and left around the glass
S: Sweet caramel and crystal malts in the nose. Very earthy. I like it. Flowery hops in the end
T: Sweet caramel in the upfront. Notes of caramel and crystal malts. Evident bready and very earthy low fermentation yeasts. Malty and crispy and very smooth and easy drinking. Mild hoppy bitterness that fits to the style
M: Light and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Malt and caramel in the aftertaste
O: Smooth and easy drinking beer. Simple and very honest. Much better than the italian macro breweries’ offers

11.2oz bottle 10/7/14 (Binny’s Naperville)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear lighter amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with a bit of a sourness on the back end. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad except for the sourness.

33cl bottle. BB date is 10/4/2014 which happened to be tomorrow, guess this won’t be its best. Amber pour, quickly dissipating head. Smell is earthy hops, earhty malt, hint of oxidation. Flavor is oxidized some sherry notes, soy, caramelized malt. These hit the market earlier this year but were rather difficult to find.

Bottle 0,33L. Clear amber colour with frothy, light brown head. Nice aroma of caramel, brown sugar, roasted malts and butter. Start taste is moderate bitter with caramel note. Finish is also moderate bitter with orange peel taste on the tongue. Light to medium body, watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Good caramely Italian vienner...

Shared a 33cl bottle. Aroma is cereal, caramel and liquorice. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is more sweet than bitter with a dry finish. Overall, a nice brew but a bit boring.

Enjoyed in a bottle at Pub Italia. Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a creamy warm cap, average retention and no lace. Big bread nose at first pour, then fruity malts appear. Fruity malts with caramel and a short finish. Wet mouthfeel but gets tarty, lingering. Surprisingly good looking for an Italian Vienna and well-brewed overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from an Italian restaurant. Pours a clear amber color with a fairly thick off-white head on it. Nose is actually pretty nutty to me, and was a little inviting. Taste was slightly toasty, but not overly flavorful. Decent drink, but pretty forgettable.
