Menabrea 150° Anniversario Bionda
33cl bb12/2017, Edeka Rieselfeld da tutti i luoghi... - bref: somehow the premium version of the regular, tall bottle Forst. None of those premium pale lager sulphurs or cardboard aromas nor flavours...what is there: fruity pale grains with a dryness that makes it easy going enough: dried apple peel, hay, lemon hops. Still not great, but among the better Italian lagers non-artigianali...

Menabrea 150° Anniversario Bionda

0.66 bottle @ Shervin’s
Both the aroma and the taste are surprisingly hoppy but they also feature a healthy amount of cheap pale malts to remind one that it is a pale lager after all. Nothing remarkable about it - a standard lager.

Menabrea Christmas Beer
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.

Menabrea Christmas Beer
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.

Menabrea 150° Anniversario Ambrata
Pours a clear dark amber body with a small wispy off-white head. The nose is sickeningly sweet with caramel, corn, and an almost sorghum like sweetness. Almost as sweet as many of those celiac beers. The flavor is just as bad, very sweet and corn laced with a lingering clingy sweetness. Medium bodied with clingy stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, not so good this one.

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.

Menabrea 150° Anniversario Strong
Menabrea Strong 6.5% A clear brassy gold color with a thick white head that lingered with some soapy lacing for a fairly respectable amount of time. The aroma is of a thick tangy graininess with some uric acid (piss) and herbal notes. Medium to full bodied but with a rough flavor: sharp booze, grains biscuit/caramel, hops like licking pine bark. Not sure what’s going on but by ramping up the alcohol they’ve thrown this beer out of whack and made it into a mess. I see that sometimes among Japanese macros too that make beers at 6+% for no discernible reason sometimes. The other two are ok but give the strong a miss unless you’re just planning to get drunk.

Menabrea 150° Anniversario Bionda
An ultra-clear deep gold with a fizzy eggshell white head of foam. The aroma is grainy sweet, herbal hops and a bit of butteriness lurking in the background. Medium bodied with a dry finish. The taste is fairly sweet with a bit of a herbal hop bite, hints of pilsner malt as well. Better than I expected.

Bottle from Aeon Liquors. This is quite a good looking amber brown with a thick off-white head of foam. The aroma is grainy, mild caramel and some herbal hops but feels kind of muted. Medium bodied with a sand-paper like carbonation. The taste is wet grains, caramel and a green herbal hop character. Pretty generic but for like 2 bucks it does the trick.

33 cl. bottle. Clear golden colour with a minimal white head. Its aroma consisting of fresh grains, grass, citrus, floral notes and some corn is quite light. Light sweetness, light bitterness and ligth to medium sourness. A bit watery mouthfeel but still a nice palate due to its sourness. Light-bodied and thin-textures with average carbonation and dry but pleasant and somewhat bitter finish. A pale lager which is above the average.
