Golden Ale. Come una dama daltri tempi, la Cortigiana usa le sottili armi della seduzione per conquistare ogni palato. Dapprima irretisce con la sua disarmante freschezza, per poi rivelare un carattere appena pi deciso, che conduce senza indugi al secondo sorso. Difficile resistere al suo aroma ammaliante, in cui i profumi agrumati e floreali dati dal luppolo si sposano alle note mielate del malto, con una intrigante nota speziata nel finale che aggiunge quel "nonsoche" ad una birra decisamente beverina. Potrete tradirla, ma mai abbandonarla!

Euston Tap. Keg. 5.0% abv. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light floralness and mild tangy citrus. Mild pine. Crispy minerally finish. Not much yeast here, which I dont have a problem with that. Its also pretty drinkable. But why so damn expensive?

harrisoni (18008) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods Piccadilly. I concur with everything EdKing said in his review, except I didnt get the funk or barley husk. Its an excellent pale ale though. Yeast and orange citrus fruits on the aroma. Sherberty hops in a firmish pale malt palate. Good bitterness on the finish balanced by an orange sweetness. Taut, dry and austere. I mean I love it. Its like the homebrew I wish I could brew. My kind of pale ale, yeast character, citrus fruits, and dry austerity. Wonderful. A definite rebuy.
