2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
1st November 2012
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.
