Una variazione della normale ReAle, i luppoli sono diversi soprattutto nella quantit: elevatissima, ma quello che cambia maggiormente la tecnica di utilizzo del luppolo. Tutto il luppolo viene utilizzato negli ultimi 10 minuti di bollitura, in una quantit 3 volte superiore rispetto alla Re Ale. Il risultato unesplosione di profumi che vanno dallagrumato al resinoso (resina di pino ed incenso). In bocca secca, immediatamente arriva lamaro per poi lasciare il passo ad una bellissima nota di mandarino che rimane estremamente persistente. Crea assuefazione!

DrnkMcDermott (3031) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Always excited to get a taste of the Italian craft beer action. In its tulip, this is a cloudy, lighter bodied pale ale, with a thin layer of foam and some lace at the edges. Smell does not have the hoppy slap in the face of an APA. Rather, theres a note of fresh cherries, then some citrus hop. I should rate it higher for being understated, perhaps, but this is what it is. Instead, i say the taste is very unusual and delicious. Im thinking, wrongly no doubt, of the newer hop varieties with kiwi or more tropical fruit notes. Malt is crystal with some aromatics, likely into a Belgian mix, or more likely what you get when an Italian brewer stops trying to imitate Heineken. yes, clearly a warm ale ferment, with fruity esters and lovely tasty malts, just a little bit thick. Touch of black pepper at the finish. Cheers, I say again cheers to growing craft beer scenes in new countries. This ones a keeper, though it may be too delicate to have in a bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 330 ml bottle, Koht
Straw orange. Nice fruity aroma - what theyre aiming for, mainly general fresh citrus in annas view. Good hoppiing, fruity and crisp, accompanied by decent malts. Very drinkable - slips down easily. A winey aspect in places. Phil writes Nice but Narp. (It leaves a good taste in the mouth and should be rated about 3.3, in annas view. Rerate this later?)
