2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent malty Italian lager. Nothing sensational here but you can tell they’re using quality malts. Pale gold, decent 1.5cm shaving foam head. Some lace. Slightly skunked - hurray for green bottles - but also showing grassy hops, bready malts and a slight sourness. Sweet and malty at the front of the mouth. Very bready - you can taste the quality. Quite substantial in the mouth but a tad overcarbonated. Reasonable bitter bite in the finish. Probably the best lager I’ve come across in a while, but then I am Australian. (33cl bottle, Amatos, bb 10/06)

Golden with a frothy head. Neutral aroma. Light malt flavour. Long, sharp grassy bitterness. Had more character than I expected but still nothing to write home about.

2005 AIBA Sample. Gold colour lager which is almost immediately bitter and that’s all. One dimensional but about as good as i’d expect from an italian pale lager.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Fully golden beer with a neat, full head. Nice malty body, some sweetness and almost no hops. Just a Lager, but a pretty ok one. "Baffo d’Oro" I believe is something like "The golden beard/moustache"? 070104

Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Fluffy white head. Grassy and light hoppy aroma. Flavour of light hops, sweetness and fruit. Ends on a light bitter note with some sweet undertones. Is thin bodied and watery.

the best lager that i’ve found in a while. A light hoppy flavor. And any pale lager with something resembling flavor is amazing in and of itself

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shiny golden appearance with intense carbonation and a beautiful white head. Definitely malty, with little or no hops bite. Not too different from your ordinary lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An orange beer with a huge though disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet malty and hoppy. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of straw and hops leading to a quite dry bitter end.

Mr. Moretti, I would like you to meet Mr. Peroni...I think you will find that you two have a lot in common...malty with a bitter finish...maybe they shoulda called it a Heinekeno (that is me trying to talk with a corny Italian accent)
