€6

Old Ale made with the addition of Vincotto di figs, with a deep amber color with ruby ​​nuances, veiled, with a compact and fairly persistent ocher foam.

€6

Schlenkerla – Marzen
Rauchbier, 5.1% vol, 0.3l
Famous smoked beer from Bamberg, it owes its distinctive aroma and flavor to smoked malt with Bavarian beech wood. Dark in color with ruby reflections, it emanates intense aromas of speck, in the background hints of fruit (plums and figs), caramel and a little coffee. The aromatic and gustatory profile is a masterpiece of intensity, balance and complexity. The smoked note is always present, almost intrusive. The palate is attacked by a “bonfire” of speck and toasted bread, resting on slightly sweet notes that recall dark fruit and caramel. The central part of the drink allows the hops to give a low level of bitterness with a citrus note.
€6

Nix – Volturno
Pils, 5% vol, 0.4l
