labeerinthum (832) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 15, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso si indirizza sul fruttato. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma abbondante e persistente ha una buona tenuta. Le bollicine sono medie. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Il perlage è costituito da bollicine fini. La carbonazione è abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è medio. Il dolce è pesante. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, cereali, frutta secca e fiori.

66cl [email protected] in Menabrea [email protected] 9 degrees C. Pours copper brown with large off white head with medium retention. Aroma dominated by malt and with a little sweetness. Taste is also toasted malty sweet, but not without a pleasant bitterness, which also manifests itself in the aftertaste. Body light, carbonation quite high. Lacks the spices of other Christmas beers, which makes it more mainstream, but also more drinkable, though without being extraordinary in any way. The English Pale Ale description is not far off.

Milter (905) - Nyborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2016
Lidt kedelig og ordinær juleøl. Savner noget bitterhed. Flot farve og skum. Smuk etiket.

rumore (485) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 3, 2016
Pours copper, with abundant whitish head. Aroma is malty. Body is light, with some carbonations tickling the tongue. Taste is balanced between sweet and bitter, with more final bitterness. Decent beer. No relationships with typical Christmas beers.

Caramel, red fruits, amber with beige head, light body,medium carbonation, taste is similar to the aroma...a strange industrial way to celebrate your christmas.

nybol (1765) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
En let humlet øl. Den har en fin smag af nødder. En let øl, måske ikke lige til den danske julemiddag, men til en let frokost er den nok god.

60 cl. flaske. 5,2 %. Italiensk juleøl. Flot etikette og flaske men øllet er ikke værd at skrive om. Noget tyndt sjask.

Having this in mid-winter New Zealand. Nice nuttiness and raisiny notes. I see menabrea as the Monteiths of Italy; dependable good drinking, if a little bit similar and predictable across the range.

Desverger (11119) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from CIBI E Vini, Copenhagen - amber pour with white head. Sweet toasty malty aroma and taste, some caramel, some faint spices, watery consistency, not bad but pretty bland.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5096) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2014
5.2% a big 600 ml bottle for a few euros at Eataly. It pours a clear mahogany with a thick foamy beige head. The nose is biscuity malts, the taste is boring but good: nutty caramel biscotti grainy but overall pretty good it just doesn't really say Christmas more hello I am a nice macro brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
