COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We chose to call our beer Gradisca, because we brew it in this corner of Romagna and San Marino, between the sea and the mountains, a land rich in history and amazing stories. But above all, as a tribute to an illustrious celebrity who was born here, film director Frederico Fellini, who conquered cinema-goers the whole world over with his rich and poetic vein of inspiration, winning as many as four Oscars for his films, including, of course, Amarcord, where Gradisca is the protagonist. Elusive and unattainable, but the object of everyone’s desire. Her sheer grace and elegance are a perfect match for the delicate color of a beer to suit any occasion. This special lager beer has a bright color and forms a light, compact head. The flavor is full and rounded, with a pleasant taste of hops and a delicate scent of flowers. It presents to the palate with a pleasantly fruity aroma accompanied by a refreshing aftertaste of hops that makes it particularly refreshing.

Suggested pairings:
Excellent as an aperitif or with fresh and light dishes such as pizza, vegetables, white meats, sautéed vegetables and savoury pies.

Note: Uses the name Gradisca on the local market, and Prima Donna for export.
Known for being 4.7% ABV in the past, now at 5.2% ABV.

SkillsFactory (43) - ITALY - APR 21, 2015
Dorata, schiuma bianca mediamente persistente. Corpo leggero, mediamente carbonata. Aroma di prugna, mandorla leggera, erbaceo. Sapore di malto unito all'amaro erbaceo che si intensifica sul finale. Particolare...

Bottle in a Tapas bar in Middlesbrough. Pours golden with a thin white head. Herbal notes with light spice and hay. OK for what it is.

ippopotamo36 (624) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 16, 2015
0,50 bottle courtesy of Andrea, consumed in Kosovo. Grazie Andrea. Pours a mostly filtered pale golden color, small white head which dissipates quite fast. Nose: malty notes, burnt plastic background, corn. Mouth: a bit too sweet, thin. Mmmmm :-I

suurjuust (1556) - ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2015
Pale golden, white head, honey notes, malt and industrial hops. Blah-blah more of the same palelageriness.

Diabobale (271) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 11, 2015
Una lager non troppo artigianale, facilmente paragonabile ad una industriale. Di colore dorato carico, con ottima schiuma bianca e fine, abbastanza persistente. Al naso lievi sentori di malto, di biscotto, come pure al palato. Corpo medio, lievissime note di amaro finali

330ml bottle - thanks Suurjuust!
Sweet pale lager. Starchy aroma. Starchy taste too. Null beer, no reason to exist.

CarloDiPietro (3) - ITALY - NOV 22, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Golden, poor white head. Aroma cereals. Taste a bit hoppy bitterness and aftertaste of yeast. Well balanced, a bit boring. I will not drink it another time.

goozen (3257) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle with swingtop 1 ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an smoothly very light sweet bitter taste. Works well on hot summer day, but now its november and i have turn up the heather for some summer-like heat.

ferryman72 (33) - NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
From bottle, poured into a plastic cup. (blasphemy!) Short, creamy head, light amber colouring, weak aroma. Ordinary pilsner with a light bitter aftertaste. Good summer drink.
