Birra ambrata di alta fermentazione ispirata alle tradizionali India Pale Ale inglesi, molto luppolata nell’aroma e nell’amaro. Al naso si percepiscono sentori agrumati principalmente di pompelmo e sentori speziati, in bocca il malto fa da padrone, segue poi il fruttato ed infine l’amaro che rimane molto persistente. La gasatura medio bassa tipica dello stile ne consente il servizio con la tradizionale pompa inglese.
A brand-new beer from a brand-new, very promising head-brewer. India Pale Ale following the American Pale Ale style with a fruity aroma (grapefruit), with peppery notes (East Kent Goldings), a rich taste of malts (Maris Otter and Crystal), with a very long bitter and citrus finish typical of Cascade hops.
[email protected] 05’. This is a real oddity. Its combination of flavours just don’t work at all. Some tinned lychee juice and paint thinnner in the aroma??? Man i really don’t know what to make of this, i was so confused i couldn’t even think of anything to write. Kinda sour palate, lemon, tinned lychee, herbs, soap, some sort of varnish, man i don’t know, this was all over the place.
Cask at GBBF 2005. It was amusing watching everyone’s reaction to this beer as they took their first whiff of it. Everyone agreed that it was certainly unique. Aroma of smokey paint with some hop, cloudy amber in colour with a sour flavour and a hint of lemon. Not sure the maker of this had ever tasted beer before.
Draught @ GBBF 2005: Orange coloured. Unclear. Has a huge huge beige head. Very odd beer. Soapy, citric aroma. Flavour is herbal and floral and has a strange rubber undertone. Notes of stale fruit. Is quite sourish and metallic in the end. This is not a bad beer, but it definately is strange tasting and smelling.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF 2005. Oh dear, something sadly wrong here. The aroma did have some hoppiness but there was also smokey paint notes - some flowery characters too. The colour of the beer was amber and it was quite hazy. The taste was chimneys and ashtrays, but not in a nice Bamberg way - this wasn’t meant to be like this. Really odd and really unpleasant and such a shame because I cannot imagine this was what the brewer intended. However we rate as we taste so very poor marks from all of us at GBBF.
