Menabrea 150° Anniversario Bionda
Live rating of a 66oml bottle from Gateshead TESCO served cold in a Moretti pint. Pale gold, thin white skim. Papery, peppery aroma. Flavour is strongly reminiscent of Becks. Quite gassy.

zapach słodowy, lekko ciężkawy, intensywny z nutami kwiatów i miodu gdzieś w tyle. kolor złoty, klarowny, piana biała, raczej mało obfita i raczej nietrwała. w smaku pełne, słodowe, konkretne, lekko kukurydziane i kurzowe, ale w dobrym sensie. goryczka niska, lekka, roślinna i lekko ziołowa. nasycenie wysokie. bardzo konkretnie i porządnie zrobione piwo

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.

Bottle from Katsura AEON Mall liquor shop. Saazy hop nose, with grain, grain, and wet cardboard. Pale straw color. Sweetsish, malty, with very timid hopping. Thin-medium body. Seems to be trying to pass as a pils.... but it’s a little too much like a macro Euro lager.

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.

330 ml. bottle. Clear copper-amber with a lasting spongy foam on top. Pleasant aroma of toasted pecan and earthy caramel is dampened by a metallic tinge. Tastes of earthy bread, toasted nut with the bitter pith, mild notes of cocoa and toffee. Dry grass on the finish. Light-medium body has mostly smooth, medium fizz and a decent balance. Pretty good example of the style.

Bottle at Anthoninos Taverna on the Hill. It poured a clear pale golden color with a white head. The aroma was of light malts, grains and some corn. The taste was similar to that aroma with more malts, grains, corn and some hay. Oh well.

Słabo, oj slabo z tym lagerem. Po nalaniu wygladalo jak klasyczny pilsner i sadzilem ze takze bedzie smakowac. Jasna slomkowa barwa, sniezna biala piana, trwala i to bardzo. Nagazowanie i babelki, ale juz pierwszy lyk mnie sprowadzil na ziemie, zdalem sobie sprawe ze to zwykly i niesmaczny lagerek. W smaku jakby skrobia, kukurydziany syrop czy syrop z buraka cukrowego. Niezbyt to bylo przyjemne. Wyglad nieadekwatny do smaku

Bottle consumed at the campsite in the shore of Lake Orta. Had to beg borrow and steal some ice. A very pale yellow coloured pour with a frothy white head, Aroma is pale pils, straw, sweaty little apple. Flavour is composed of sweet corn, big adjunct, cheap lager, corn. Palate is watery, thin, moderate carbonation. lingering cardboard. Pretty shitty.

Clear dark straw, almost golden color, with a strong amount of activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head that last for 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs. Aromas of sweet grains and corn a little. Flavors of skunk, corn, sweet malts, lemon, and herbal spices. Faint smoky roasted feel with some grass. A bit sugary but more of a sharp bitter lemony feel. Slick medium body with super prickly carbonation. Light finish that ends with some grassy noble spices and a faint zest. Overall pretty average in quality: faint flavors, good freshness, a little adjunct and syrupy, strange unique decent hoppy feel, too much carbonation, feels a little like wet cardboard.

Copper with little white head. Aroma is raisins, some smoke and lots of malts. Taste is quite thin. Not as much malty sweetness as expected, but rather watery and fruity sour. Thin body. Some rubber band is definitely in there. Meh.
