2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. Has been standing for a year this so taking this as a ish-rating. In the glass it has a golden orange body packed with lots of microscopic particles and a medium sized slowly bubbling just off-white head. Smells really old hoppy and kinda thin. Some sour-ish fruits here, a little bit of harsh grass and I don’t find it particularly pleasant. It’s really thin in the taste also. Old hops, it’s earthy with a soil like earthiness. Light oily to watery in the mouth disease the carbonation level is about average. Ends with hints of hay and more grass. A bit over the top most likely. 09.10.2013

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Ristorante Atto Primo. Colore giallo dorato velato, schiuma scarsa, abbastanza grossolana e abbastanza persistente. Profumo abbastanza intenso, erbaceo, luppolo da aroma, agrumato in quantità, fruttato da malto un po’ nascosto. Gusto poco intenso, amaro, ma non come avrei creduto, è piuttosto morbida, si avverte una luppolatura decisa, ma l’agrumato generale bilancia il tutto. Ci sono anche sentori di resina ed erba appena tagliata. Per una APA è poco amara però il che la rende più equilibrata, ma ne perde l’armonia generale. ne berrei un sacco, ma non credo sia del tutto in stile.
