3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite drinkable and well made, malty and sweet but dry in the finish, soft mouthfeel and nice earthy malt low notes lingering in the finish. Aroma is sharp and worty, toasty and lifted by a touch of floral hops. Only slight dodginess is the weird black banana (chess set) flavour in the aftertaste. Nice head that settles in little icefloes, Czech style. In fact reminds me of Czech polotmaves.

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

Hazy deep amber color, average sized off white head. Aroma of red fruits, malt, caramel. Taste is similar. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Dry and kinda dull. Well, decent Vienna I guess.

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.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brandy in colour with a suprisingly large head. Aroma of malbec wine and caramel. A battle for dominance in the mouth. One second its fruit, the next sour hops, the next sweet malt. They just don’t want to balance each other out.
The joyful nose saves this one from disaster.

Some bitterness in the aroma. Some sour fruityness (rowan berries?) and a malty finish. Fresh and fruity in the aftertaste.

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...
