Today’s 2nd beer is an Oktoberfest from Italy’s Birradamare: Birra Roma Ambrata. I picked up a six-pack on sale as some labels were scuffed, lucky me! 5.5% bottle from Rakuten. Drunk from a glass beer mug. An opaque nutty honey looking brown with a thick foamy head. Quite a fruity-wine like aroma reminiscent of Belgian yeast. A nice full bodied mouthfeel with some nutty, biscuity qualities & a touch of spicy smoke. I think Japanese people would call it "goku". The online reviews had me not expecting much so I was pleasently surprised! This is pretty tasty! A really solid beer. Vanz (312) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2013
On tap at Terrazza in Chatswood, Australia. Sweet malty beer (caramel?) with a light head, clear golden appearance. Still a pleasant bitter edge rounding it out, very drinkable.

Weird little 33cl bottle pours a hazy, caramel amber with some thin, off white head. Nose is yeast, a little biscotti, cracker, some apple, bread. Flavor takes a sharp turn, tomatoes, celery seed, bread, a little cardboard, some odd smokey. Strange, sweet finish. Why can’t these Italian brewers just try and stick to styles? subcombicio (203) - Marghera, ITALY - AUG 11, 2013
Non male ma niente di speciale per questa produzione romana. Molto melgio altre di questo birrificio. fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from B.O.A., Ostia, bb 9/2014, batch 5016cagou007 (1213) - FRANCE - MAY 7, 2013
Beautiful red-amber color with medium sized head. Aroma of malt, with some caramel. Good mouthfeel, round, with nice caramel and malt flavor, light smoke, correct bitterness.
Pours a murky orange colour with a medium white head which settles down quickly. Aromas are malts and bread with a hint of smoked wood. Maybe a light chocolate aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation is a bit disturbing. A lightly hoppy finish, a bit short actually.
