Advent Beer 12: Birrificio Del Ducato's Golden Ale

True to its name, this Italian beer pours a pleasant, hazy gold, with a generous head. It has a strong presence of hops that put it firmly on the border with IPAs (Italian Pale Ale?), but I didn't find it quite as crisp or refreshing as yesterday's Hopfest. Still, a very tasty brew, in a style that is growing on me very quickly...

I'm not at all sure what they are getting at in the copy on the back of the bottle, since my pidgin Italian is even sketchier than my Germanic version, but this Golden Ale probably has the best looking label of the calendar so far.
