My Christmas Presents: Part I

I got three beers from Brian for Christmas. The first of these beers was Birra del Borgo’s Re Ale EXTRA. A quick read of the ingredients you get where they got the name, as it includes EXTRA hop. Hop or hops, this beer has a bit of both. It pours gold in color, though I did get a bit of the yeast in the glass so it was a bit cloudy, with a white and stable head that lasted through the whole pint. The hops are prevalent throughout with spicy hop characteristics and possibly, some English hops. This is a great straightforward pale; nothing fancy, just a great well balanced beer. Pick your favorite pale in town, and this beer can hold its own. This is EXTRA proof there are excellent beers produced in Italy.

The two other beers I got from form Brian are weekend beers, bigger in both volume and alcohol, so you will have to wait a bit to hear about Two Gypsies Ours Side and Labyrinth.
