A few weeks ago I picked up some new craft beer from Italy that had just arrived in the country that day curtsey of drinkstore. The brewery is called Brewfist and I had one of them at the European Beer Bloggers Conference and quite liked it. So I grabbed the whole range and drank them so I suppose I should write about them since the EBBC12 posts are finished.
24K is a refreshing golden ale with hay like qualities, and not just the colour. A little biscuit is not enough to save this from being a rather boring ale. That said, it's easy to drink and will not offend anyone.
Jale ESB is a a rather nice take on the style. At 5.6% it is not the most sessionable. Some chocolate and toffee with a sour finish on this one. Quite tasty.
Burocracy IPA is a 6% testament to bad spelling. Unless it's supposed to be another word I am not familiar with. This is a typical American style IPA. Better than some but not a patch on many others. Pine and citrus are expected and the beer does not disappoint, it just does not stand out.
Spaceman is the beer I had at EBBC12 and the one I liked the most. A piney orange citrus with lots of bitter orange pith. There was one slight oddity that I could not put my finger on and it put me off slightly. This is a good beer but I feel it could have been better. It might not be worth hunting down but it's a lovely beer and certainly worth grabbing if you see it.
Fear is a milk chocolate stout. I am going to have to assume it's a milk stout because there was a strong sense of lactose. It's rather nice in a chocolate milkshake meets beer kind of way. I don't think it is quite up to Left Hand standards but again, if you want one and it's there, it is a good enough beer to try. My only complaint is that it's a little thin and I like my stouts, to be stout.
So there we have it. The beers are impressive for the most part, with the exception of 24K anyway. They might not be beers that will make you want to hunt them down but if available you should certainly give them a go.
