Birrificio Italiano "Sparrow Pit"
33 cl brown glass bottle coded "LOTTO No 18151 IMBOTTIGLIATA IL: 23-08-18 DA CONSUMARSI PREFERIBILAMENTE ENTRO IL: 31-10-2020". Sampled on 5 December 2019.
€6,70 @ Birrificio Italiano, Lurago Marinone, IT

Look: Hazy reddish amber with crimson highlights beneath a pillowy head of off-white. Very good head retention and lacing.
Smell: Aroma of dried apricots and light spiciness.
Taste: Notes of golden caramel, darker caramel, apple, grass, and mild herbs, dried leaves, and spice. The alcohol never shows. Low to moderate bitterness. Mostly dry with a mild, lingering finish as the malt and hops fade.
Feel: Medium-full in body and crisp-then-smooth across the palate.
Overall: An interesting Italian take on the English barley wine style.
