COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They were the gypsies who strode across the misty valleys of Europe over the centuries. Their's was a life on the move, always on horseback. An exquisite alchemy of strength and skill. With man and horse in perfect rhythm. This is the inspiration of our beer whose recipe takes a page from history and turns it into the choice of today and tomorrow, Zingaro. Brewed with skill to blend strength with character. Filled with zest for life. Like you.

The commercial description is more of a mouthfull than this super strength tramp brew.

Kinz (3293) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Huge thanks to Amit for bringing this back from India for me. A fun label indicates that the beer has less than 8% alcohol. That vagueness would never allow a bottle of this into the US commercially, but is what makes sampling Indian beers so much fun. Pours a light gold, surprisingly good head with decent retention. Aroma was vaguely bready with a hint of ash. Flavor was quite a shock, bready malts, faint rice, a touch of honey, and a definite smoky note that I wasn’t remotely expecting. Faint hop bitterness on the finish. By Indian beer standards, this was really good, by malt beer standards, it bordered on fantastic. I know I got this bottle in good condition, but I was surprised at how much better it was than I had expected. I suspect the flavors I found here would wilt quickly in the hull of a ship for a month, or on a store shelf with that clear bottle.

Bottle. [Tasting @ Papsoe 20-10-2008] Average bubbly white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Clear yellow color. Aroma of mild malt, almost buttery, hint of corn. Over the palate came mild fruity and sugary feel and a hint of metallic note. Light bodied with an average carbonation with a mild sharp alcoholic texture. Light sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Light sweet malty finish.

madsberg (10231) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2008
Bottle bought in Ooty, TN. Golden coloured. Clear. Dense off white head. Peach, light bread and some herbs in the aroma. Flavour as well is full of peach and bbead. Has some sweetnes and a light metallic note. Is quite thin bodied inspite of the high ABV. Is alcoholdense and sweet in the end. Not too bad, but boy, am I looking forward to come back to Denmark on visit in 2 month!!!.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2008
Bottled. A light golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is skunky malty with notes of metal. The flavor is sweet - overly sweet - somewhat artificial with light notes of malt, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks Madsberg for bringing this to Denmark.
