‘na Biretta Rossa

Have you ever responded to a text or email and think you’re responding to another one someone else sent you and you say something completely and totally inappropriate? I did that recently. Really, really not funny and I looked like an idiot. I guess if you aren’t me, it was pretty funny. Anyways, I’m back. Work has been crazy, so updating has not been an option. I had this beer a couple of weeks ago and am now trying to get through my never-ending backlog of reviews.

ABV: 6.3%

Style: Bock

Trivia: Apparently this beer pairs well with kangaroo skewers. Where exactly am I going to find those?

Random: All I have been listening to for the past two or three days is 90s music.

The first thing that I noticed about this beer was that it exploded. So, I lost about a sixth of it to the explosion. Wonderful. Once I actually got to pour it, the brew was about two fingers high and cream-colored. It was slow to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy mahogany color with high carbonation visible throughout. The nose had some bready malt and caramel as well. For the style, it was a relatively muted nose for the style. The taste wasn’t bad. I got some nutty caramel malts with some marked sweetness. The end of the sip was a miss for me. It was medicinal and just off-putting. The body was light for the style with heavy carbonation. The finish was long with the same medicinal taste. This beer just didn’t thrill me, although it does come in a cool bottle.

Untappd Rating: 2.5/5.0
