Birrificio Lambrate Lambrate (6.8%)

Another beautifully dressed beer from Lambrate, and this time it’s their take on a bottle conditioned Bock.
Let me just say, I love this brewery’s artwork.
It’s modern, it’s fun, it’s very cool indeed, blending beer and comic books and Italian chic.
It’s Rock’n’Roll and it’s glorious.
And so is this beer.
Pouring a deeply satisfying polished mahogany, Lambrate shouts, “DRINK ME! I ROCK!”
The aroma is a clean metallic yeast and red berries popped between your fingers and smeared on your favourite band T-shirt.
Taking a mouthful is, for me, the best part of my time living in Italy.
It’s sitting outside a bar surrounded by friends in the cooling summer evening breeze.
There’s an absolutely terrific boozy caramel redness, burned around the edges, with sharp splinters of black pepper and toffee apple plumpness.
Meanwhile Lambrate’s hops are wearing very expensive Cool As F*ck shades and hanging around on vespas in tight vests and worn Levis.
They’re all attitude, lithe, sensuous, physical, fill of juicy mandarins and sun dried leaves and flower petals.
Lambrate is meant to be a Bock.
I’m not so sure that’s what it is, but it’s superbly good nonetheless.
Ciao ragazzi.

    I tried this at an Italian restaurant in west London. Amazing. Does anyone know where you can buy this in the UK?

    Had a few of the range in before and just got this one in today. I’ve got a bottle for myself as well. Looking forward to trying it. Liked the others I have had.
