COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dopo i lusinghieri successi ottenuti con le prime cinque birre, il birraio sardo Nicola Perra, si lancia in una nuova avventura molto pazza (Macca Meda, in lingua sarda) con una birra vicina ad una American Amber Ale, al tempo stesso forte e beverina, dal taglio internazionale per la presenza di ingredienti legati a paesi di grande tradizione, messi al servizio del nuovo emergente Made in Italy sinonimo di fantasia, creativit ed originalit. La Macca Meda, al naso ci regala una piacevole sensazione di freschezza seguita da imponenti note fruttate di uva bianca, arancia ed albicocca. Nel palato convivono in armonia lagrumato, lamaro e lo speziato che ci indirizzano verso un retrogusto esplosivo contraddistinto da ficcanti punte di pepato e da una netta astringenza. Artefice principale il First Gold, un luppolo impiegato non di frequente, di origine inglese, coltivato in Belgio nella zona di Poperinge. Destinata, per complessit ed eclettismo, a ristoranti di alto livello, consiglio di provarla con carni dai sapori decisi come quella dellanatra o delloca. Godibile anche in ambienti meno formali, con formaggi di media stagionatura. Lorenzo Dabove in arte Kuaska

fiulijn (20284) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle from Pazzeria, Milan
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. If you rally dig into the aroma, you may find some almonds (but also paper and alcohol). Correct body strength, modest malt flavor, with a very light touch of herbs; light residual sweetness; it has a correct bitterness. Not bad, but overall simple and rather boring.
Among the Belgians, sub-par.

harrisoni (18226) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Hazy gold amber light brown lasting thin off white head. Rather a decent amber/pale ale I thought. Like a lot of Italian beers, its just so defined in the flavours. I mean every other amber Ive had in the past couple of weeks has been what it says on the tin. This is just more defined and flavourfull. Very decent. Some hop on the finish. Malty hoppy, drinkable. Some lemon and orange fruit flavours.

Bottle @ Paps-Grand-Tasting, September 2010. Pours clear amber with a small bubbly head. Yeast and fruit. A bit of pepper. Medium bodied. Ok
