VISUAL ANALYSIS

  • Foam: white, fine and compact, quite persistent with a good adhesion to the surface of the glass.
  • Appearance: bright gold color, yellow reflections. Crystalline.
  • Effervescence: small bubbles, mid effervescence.

 

OLFACTORY ANALYSIS

  • Scent/ olfactory sensation: elegant and pleasing aroma, it reveals hints of dry herbs and flowers, topped by malty and gentle biscuit notes.

 

GUSTATORY PERCEPTION

  • Tactile sensation: the carbonation is slightly above average and it is balanced properly with the light body.
  • Taste: in the mouth the hint of barley, a balsamic honey which helps to give it a remarkable freshness, a moderate bitterness.
  • Olfacto-Gustatory sensation/ back aroma: not very rich aftertaste, as rightly expected by most of the bottom-fermented beers. A clean, sweetish to malty lager beer.

 

OVERALL IMPRESSION: a malty, clean, easy to drink and refreshing lager beer.
