1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: Pours a dark yellow and bit cloudy color forming a big bubbled soapy heaf. Good retention and lots of small spotty lacings left in the glass
S: Sweet grains with a nice kick of honey. Flowery hops and bready Lager yeasts
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong sweet grains, honey, flowery hops. End is quite biscuity and bready with some light hoppy bitterness in the end
M: Medium body and good carbonation. Bready and malty aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Quite honest Euro Lager, which is quite hard to find. My third Amarcord, a quite decent Italian small brewery

Bottle at Cafe Berry, Sliema, Malta. 5.2% ABV. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is big yeast, light citrus malt. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a light, slightly watery, citrus yeast, light hop, light mineral palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,50L. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, white head. Aroma of straw, chessnut and a little cask wood. Taste starts light sweet and crispy with grassy note and medium bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and lively carbonation. Reminds me on pilsner, rather than lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Italian lager labelled Gradisca Bionda Speciale, but exported as Gradisca Prima Donna. Honours film maker Fellini, who was apparently born in this region. Stronger than before now, with stable, snow white head and warm colour of ’old gold’, clear. Dry maltiness, some apple, rhubarb, grass and tonic water in the nose, something sweaty as well. Rounded malt sweetness in the mouth, quickly evolving into a grassy and leafy, long hop bitterness. More so than average, I would even consider this a Pilsener rather than just a standard pale lager.

Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a straw yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is hay, cereal and malt. Average carbonation and light watery body. Taste is light bitter, light sweet with a dry hoppy finish. Some astringent notes. Overall, an average boring lager. Nothing special about it.
