Birra Amiata Bastarda Rossa (The Red Bastard)

Birra Amiata Bastarda Rossa (The Red Bastard)

This spiced ale from Tuscany, Italy pleasantly exudes chestnuts prominently along with earthy herbal tones, nutmeg, yeasty esters and Thrifty’s Chipmunk Bread. Pours an effervescent slightly off-white head, micro-bubbly and holds for a fortnight. Savour this one in front of an open-fire or the Holiday Fire Channel in a pinch. Serve in a goblet or tulip and pair with sourdough and spinach dip, Kalamata olives, Gouda or hummus and naan.

A very sweet clerk at Six-Mile Liquor Store asked me to give her a full review, so here you go.

ABV: 6.5%
My rating: 4.0/5
