Dark amber color, a bit veiled. Beige foam, average, one finger.
Good smell, fresh and hoppy, inviting. Citric, almost orange peel.
In the mouth again, malt and caramel as a base, then a good amount of hoppiness, but not too much.
Quite balanced, maybe just a bit warm.
Average body, caramel and hop in the aftertaste.

33cl brown bottle purchased from Domus Birrae in Rome. Cool label featuring wrap-around lettering in impossible shapes. Freshness date of September 2014.

They call this an American Amber Ale on the bottle, but I've never seen such a pale amber before, more of a deep golden colour, with a filmy and weak head of off-white. This only persists as a fine ring around the edge. No lacing. Body is solid though, and it hold very fine carbonation. Overall, it seems a bit off.

Nose is muted and dull. Some faint slightly grainy malt characters come through, and a slightly rank vegetative character that reminds me of the zoo. But mostly, it's just nothing. There's not much going on here at all, and it's a shame.

Taste is similar, or perhaps even slightly worse. The flat grain character is prevalent, but laced with an unpleasant yeastiness here. Hops provide a slightly earthy vegetative character—plaintively trying to lift up the flavours of the malt, but it doesn't have much success. Feel is pretty weak, even weak given its ABV.

Overall: just a disappointing mess. No, not a mess—a mess implies that there's something going on, and this is mostly just empty. There's not enough content to constitute a mess. It's just poor.

This is one hell of beer from our friends in the south. Nice copper coloured fluid and a very good mouthfeel. Carbonation is perfect!
