COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Porpora is an interesting Bock hopped with Styrian Golding, Perla and Cascade and dry hopped with Styrian Golding.
Lager in the Hopped Bock style. Bright red colour with ruby reflections. On the nose, caramel notes are neat and followed by clear herb notes from hoppers, finally surmounted by winy and dried fruit scents. It tastes of syruped fruit but it never becomes sickly, thanks to the perfect balance ensured by the hopper. As a whole, this beer has an extraordinary balance which makes it extremely easy to drink. 18°

Hazy amber - brown beer. Big tan head. Softish palate with a little prickly carbonation. Rich malt with slightly sweet dark toffee. Malt cream before the seamlessly integrated hop. Nicely joined up. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. Tasty lip smacking beer.
