A bright yellow beer with a fine and persistent white head.
The light herbaceous scent, accompanied by notes of cereals, makes this version even fresher than the original.
The use of fresh hop flowers from our fields in Italy enriches the aromatic bouquet. The distinctive, fresh and pleasant herbaceous and bitter note is complemented by a delicate aftertaste that brings out the taste of all the ingredients and, by contrast, makes the taste of the barley malt stand out even more. Despite being less dry than the original Nazionale, it is still amazingly fresh.
Water, malt of barley from our fields, Italian hops, mix of spices and citrus zest in variable proportions, sugar, yeast.
Every fall, a special edition of Nazionale is brewed once to celebrate the new hops, used while they are still extremely fresh. Harvested at the end of summer in the fields in Piozzo, just a few hundred meters from the brewery, the fresh hops are processed and used just a few days later.
Every year, all the staff excitedly awaits Nazionale Luppolo Fresco, which pays back for the hard work that began in the fields and continued in the brewery. It is only available in casks, as it should be drunk when it’s fresh to fully enjoy its bouquet. In 2019, however, Teo has decided to make a limited number of cans - just 2,000 - for those who’d rather drink it at home. We know they will soon run out but - as we said - it’s a beer that should be drunk fresh!
