Bottled (backlog). Gusher warning. Brown colour with a huge off-white head. Aroma is sour wood, some toffee and mild spiciness. Flavour is quite sour wood, mild toffee, some diacetyl as well as a bunch of yeast. Infected, but still a nice maltiness to it. SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - APR 25, 2016
Rossa limpida con riflessi dorati, schiuma bianca poco persistente.
Aroma di malto d'orzo e caramello.
Al palato sempre malto d'orzo e caramello, finale erbaceo e di "gomma bruciata".
Corpo medio, ben carbonata. matto666 (20) - ITALY - APR 10, 2016
Non capisco come ancora questo birrificio possa continuare a lavorare. Tutte le birre che producono hanno lo stesso sapore di fondo, sono torbide e spesso infette. Un bambino di 4 anni farebbe meglio jamaty (2268) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Ambar oscura, rojiza. Sin espuma. Apenas película. Aroma inicial a cereza, luego escaso. En boca poco cuerpo y gas medio. Suave al paladar. Inicio más o menos frutal, manteniendo el tono frutal todo el tiempo. Final muy miuy amargo y seco que queda en boca mucho tiempo. Es una cerveza diferente, nunca excelente, pero que no deja indiferente. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours turbid copper with off-khaki head. Nose is caramel malt, vinous fruit, brown sugar. Tasted somewhat tart, with notes of caramel, hops, and figgy fruit.

Bottle @home. Pours cloudy amber/brown with off-white foam. Aroma is a bit sour, not a pleasant one. Malty, light to medium sour taste. Medium carbonation. Little sour, dry aftertaste. DuffMan (10772) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Okay so I have a question. What was the brewer’s intention here, really? Did the person who entered this beer into the database decide this was an ESB, or did the brewer decide? I don’t know because I can’t understand Italian so I can’t read the label. It’s important, because if the brewer says that this is a sour brown or sour red ale, then that changes everything. This beer is lightly sour, lightly phenolic, and moderately malty. As an ESB it is a dismal fail. As a sour ale of any sort, it is moderately successful. I don’t know how to score this because I don’t know what it claims to be. So I’m going to go middle of the road to give the brewer a benefit of doubt.

Nice brown, but was a massive gusher - docking points for that. Quite nice sour aroma, to be honest, nice toffee. Clearly has potential, if it hadn’t spoiled, but it has spoiled, so they fail, and I give them a low score. Not the first dodginess encounter from these guys, IIRC.
