Two flagship hop varieties from the United States and Europe, producing a perfect blend of tastes in a unique beer that makes you want to drink it every day...
BEER: Pale Lager
ALCOHOL: 4.8 % vol
The head has significant basic qualities of fineness, density, adherence and persistence. In appearance this is a pale golden beer with a slight haziness that comes from the filtration left deliberately incomplete, ensuring the look of an authentic craft beer.
An absolutely enjoyable fineness of aroma, revealing notes of dry grass and a noticeable floral bouquet of hops. Full-bodied, fresh and light, an invitation to keep drinking.
The varieties used for the dry-hopping that distinguishes Gradisca Limited Edition include Nelson Sauvin. This is a very rare hop that was bred and developed in the Nelson region of New Zealand, where it is now cultivated. The particular characteristic of Nelson Sauvin is given by the presence of essential oils that recall the aroma of fresh gooseberries, a descriptor that is above all also used to describe the bouquet of Sauvignon Blanc white wine, after which the hop is named.
We've combined Nelson Sauvin with Saaz, one of the world's most widely used hop varieties, which has long been a fundamental flavouring that has contributed to the diffusion of most of Europe's bottom-fermented lager beers, greatly enhancing their quality.
The meeting between these two hop varieties with such different backgrounds is a daring challenge for Amarcord Beer, with its choice to use particularly special hops that have played a crucial role in the history of the greatest international beers. The result could only be a beer in the style of an American lager, light but with a distinct personality with malty hints and refreshing notes of hops, which combine to make it extraordinarily enjoyable to drink, a beer that stands out clearly from the crowd.
- Barley Malt
Service Temperature: 5/6°c
An excellent match for pasta and rice dishes with crustaceans, calamari or Atlantic crabs, cleaning the palate but conserving and sustaining these delicate flavours. Can also accompany dishes with white meats, with the bitterness of hops contrasting and counterbalancing their typical sweetness.
Piadina flatbread with squacquerone and arugula, culatello ham or vegetables.
