CraftBeerNick (1724) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2016
Bottle at Taormina Park Hotel, 31st March 16. Standard pale lager, went down well after the drive, sitting down by the pool.

DrNosha (1395) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2016
0,66l Flasche. Hellgelbe klare Farbe, wenig Schaum. Sauer herber Duft und Geschmack. Warum nur gibt es solche schlechten Biere in Italien nur in großen Flaschen?!

LazyPyro (370) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
33cl bottle at a restaurant in Taormina, Sicily (although "Sicilian" it’s brewed in Italy apparently). Pale golden colour, small white head that quickly disappeared. Aroma of malts and a light grassiness. Nothing remarkable in the taste, but it was drinkable and refreshing with my pizza.
Very old rating, 17th August 2007.

330ml bottle at Lygon Food Store, Carlton, Melbourne. This is a Sicilian pale lager that is less sweet and a slightly more hoppy than a Peroni which is about the only good thing to say about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

holdleder (297) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
33 cl. flaske. 4,7 %. Bragt hjem fra ferie til Sicilien. Lys kornfarvet øl, læskende og perfekt til en sommerdag

Bottle. Light golden pour with a nice white head. Grass, hop, grain. Light body. Good carbonation. Grassy feel.

RichardGretton (4576) - 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

jice (257) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 1, 2015
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 (705) - 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
