Captain Lawrence Birra DeCicco Limone Luppolo
I received a bottle of Captain Lawrence Birra DeCicco Limone Luppolo from my buddy Tim as part of a beer trade. The beer pours a golden color with a foamy white head that laces nicely to the glass. The aroma consists of lemon, pine, spruce, grass, wheat, pepper, and tangerine. The taste is smooth and lemony at first before the grassy hops come out to play. The finish is filled with pepper, pine, and spruce. The after taste leaves a peppery taste in the back corners of the mouth and dries the tongue. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. I liked the overall flavor of this beer, from sweet lemon to dry grassy and piny hops. But the best part is the peppery after taste that hangs around for a few minutes.
