Italian Beer Series: Castello (Udine)

Castello, produced in Udine, recently just went through a makeover to jazz-up its image as a homely brew from the Slavic part of Italy. You can still find its old straightforward label (as I did), but the new labels are also around--more energetic, young, and for the drink-til-you-pass-out crowd. Despite all that, the beer is nothing to air-guitar about. It's characterized by a mellow hoppy smell with strong carbonation and medium body. Upon pouring, the beer has a light amber color and the froth is light and transient. Beer itself is nothing special, with a very slight sweetness and pleasant bitter aftertaste.
