La Viæmilia was the inaugural beer brewed at Birrificio Del Ducato. This lager is cellared for at least six weeks, the first week is for primary fermentation and the remaining 4 to 5 for lagering at 3◦C. Hop flowers are added during lagering.

The brewers travel to Tettnang, a small village in the south of Germany each September to select the Tettnang Tettnanger hops they will use for the next year.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 28/02/2016


(sample BB 01/Sep/16) Hazy, golden amber with a quickly diminishing white head.


Subdued, cereal and white bread with lemon zest, grass and faint honeysuckle floral notes.


Dry, piney hops with white bread crust and overripe banana.


Grass and pine hops on a dry but faintly honeyed finish.


This Italian pilsner has attractive overripe banana fruitiness set against dry piney and grassy hops with good cereal character and a creamy mouthfeel.
