RichardGretton (4406) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle@Roccalumera, Sicily. Golden beer with a strong soon disappearing head. The aroma is dry and yeasty, and the flavour is mildly bitter and dry with gasey yeastiness. Overall a very average pale lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

La bière des pizzerias à un prix démesuré sous prétexte que c’est brassé en Sicille. C’est une bière, mais sans caractère.

Having just returned from an epic vacation to Sicily, I now have a backlog of Sicilian and Italian beer ratings to upload. First up is this apparently Sicilian-in-name-only adjunct lager, a former classic local brew, but since a victim of Heineken's globalization. Still a surprisingly enjoyable beer, nothing sophisticated about it, but it is a fresh and clean industrial pale lager with a light malty taste and some generic hoppiness. Very thin yellow color and light bodied, not a strong flavor but is smooth and drinkable. Featured a long lasting full white head and lively carbonation. Lower ABV and clean finish makes it good for casual sessioning on a leisurely evening.

Choos (661) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Woeful stuff Garbage lager that may as well be Australian macro. Initial sulphur stink giving way to some light hop. Thin with some cane sugary cidery notes and stale hop. Lingering hop ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is brewing cereal, corn and hints of grass. Taste is pretty watery. The usual pale ale stuff. zzzzz Wake me up when the flavour arrives.

RuneStumo (2373) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2013
0,33l Bottle. Taormina, Sicily. Pale yellow colour with white head. Rather weak malty aroma. Refreshing when cold with moderate bitterness and soft dry bitter aftertaste. Grain and cereal with notes of green apples and ripe berries. Soft and thin beer.

Flaska @ Jamie´s Italian, Edinburgh. Guldfärgad, vitt skum. Gräsiga och peppriga dofter. Ljust bröd, gräs, lime i smaken. Passar sig väl som matöl.

Couple of bottles around Taormina, Sicily. Clear gold beer, little white head. Crispy palate. Clean lagerish malts, trace of paper and a whisper of banana ester. Inoffensive.
