31/10/2011 75cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome - BB: 5/4/12 (2011-609)

Cloudy red beer, small white head, bit stable, little adhesive. Aroma: very sweet peaches, lychees, some passion fruits. MF: good carbon, medium to light body. Taste: some sweet malts, very fruity, citrus, some exotic fruits, bit dusty, some dried fruits as well, bitter hops. Aftertaste: very dry bitter hops. I wouldn’t exactly call this an English bitter, for that the hops are way to American. How about a pale ale, guys?

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - OCT 17, 2011
750 ml bottle. A hazy medium to dark amber beer, with an average sized, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting off-white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookies), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of apricot and peach. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness. Very interesting session beer, fresh, quaffable, with a lot of fruity and hoppy notes. Perhaps only abit light bodied an dwatery, but no major flaws.

Splendido bouquet al naso, ma al palato perde un po, non mi colpisce, di certo non la miglior bitter del mondo come sbandierato al B&F

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Handpump at Bir & Fud, Rome. Decent creamy white head. Slightly hazy amber pour. Quite a decent bitter. I was impressed with the handpumps!

Draft at Bir & Fud. Nice description on this one, which roughly translates to: "Drink it and see if you like it" as far as I can tell. Gotta love the confidence. Hazy golden with nice white head and lacing. Peach and other light fruits, pale malt, and floral hoppy notes on the nose. The flavor is great and balanced, with a light pale malt base and great floral, fruity, and earthy hop flavors balancing it out. The bitterness level is spot-on for the style. Clean and crisp on the palate with a good level of carbonation. This is a great and very drinkable bitter, coming from an American who barely knows the style, this being my 12th Bitter tick.

On tap at BQ, Via Losanna, Milano. Hazy copper colour. Grassy and citrussy hops lead the way, with the bitter flavours balanced by good caramel. Nice.
