2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From my notes 6/10/07 pours a two-finger white head that vanishes to a ring, leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Slight hoppy nose. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Flavor is balanced with a slight bitter finish. €11 ($15.07) for a 330ml bottle from the Gran Caffč Chioggia Venice, Italy. Yes it is expensive, that’s 30 bucks for two beers, this is the big restaurant right on the corner in St. Mark’s square in Venice - avoid. Vendors along the canal have cold beers for €3.

Bottle. Frothy white fair mostly deminishng head. Dark yellow colour. Nice malty and light hopy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Surprisingly powerfull bitter average finish. Watery palate. I am not fond of this beer but it has some quality that makes it a little better than other Italian Pale lagers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12-ounce bottle. Bright straw color with a little white film here and there near the top. Crisp hop on the nose. Bubbly but otherwise not much body. Crisp hop finish that walks away whistling before the beer even hits your gullet. For a sip or two, you start to entertain the idea that pale lagers might have been a good idea once, but it gets boring long before you think about draining a tumbler.
