3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dark amber beer with a long lasting beige head
Aroma is dominated by some spicy hoppiness
Medium-bodied, low bitterness and a pretty long spicy finish. Interesting to try and checking off your list, not a beer I would recommend.
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Colore ambrato chiaro. Poca schiuma bianca che scompare quasi subito. Odore di leggero caramello tostato. In bocca un gusto per nulla piacevole di caramello misto a erbaceo. Amara, nauseante. Acquosa. Acquistata presso la GDO, probabilmente è stata sottoposta a sbalzi termici: ciò che ne deriva è la mancanza di carbonazione quasi come se si fosse sgasata.

Swing-top bottle, 0.75l, shared with Patrick. Aroma of yeast, dark fruit and grass. Pours cloudy amber brown color with thin quickly diminishing off-white head and sparkling appearance. Taste starts medium sweet bready and yeasty, follows by some toasted malt and salty, but totally plain without any body, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Just terrible... Cimbasso (1056) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2017
Sampled as Mastri Birrai Umbri Cotta 28. Slightly past its sell-by date and unbelievably expensive. Nice bottle with a crown cork AND a swing-top with what looks like gold-plated metal work. Unfortunately, this is a very dull beer. Copper colour with a thin white head. Little aroma. Some sweet toffee-ish caramel malts and some berry flavours. Some very mild bitterness with a short aftertaste. hawkeyemark (3) - - AUG 18, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 Hazy amber, but a little flat. Malty and not unpleasant, but quite thin and with very little aftertaste. cagou007 (1236) - FRANCE - AUG 14, 2017
Bottle at La Loggia, Palermo-- Pours cloudy golden with thin white head. Nose is very discrete malt. Aromas are sweet malts, caramel. Low carbonation, light body. Medium sweet finish. Beautiful bottle, very elegant. But the beer is watery and boring. That's almost criminal to put such a bad beer in such a great bottle!!

W zapachu bardzo przyjemne, słodkie, goździkowe - powiedziałbym, że to pszeniczne rumore (865) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 20, 2017
W smaku bardzo puste, slodkawe, słodowe, bardzo nijakie. Nie za bardzo jest tu co opisywać. Użyty dodatek, cokolwiek to było, po włosku (groszek?), ani jest wyczuwalny ani nic. Ot, taka ciekawa pamiątka z podróży.
Cotta 28. From 375 ml bottle at ’Na Pizz, Rimini, Italy. Pours hazy orange gold with limited white foam. Aroma is malt, somehow vegetable (the beer is made with chilling). Body is medium, with relatively low carbonation. Taste is sweet at first but exhibiting good bitterness. Finish is short. Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2017
