2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (from Tesco, BB Jun 07). Pale with fairly thick head. Light lagery malts, sweet cereal and suggestion of grassy hops. Sweet with minimal bitterness and quite thin. This is certainly not a good beer but it does suprisingly well when wanting mindless alcoholic refreshment in hot weather.

light yellow color, white thick foamy head. aroma is refined sugar and dried grass. flavor is also dried grass, refined sugar, and a little hop bitterness in the finish. light to watery but not too bad for the awful world of light lagers. it went better with food.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
First had this at Macaroni’s, while waiting for seating. Chose it over the popular local (Yuengling) and regretted it. Low aroma and overall watered down (including somewhat skunky) taste. A second tasting on another occasion proved equally disappointing. Sure, take it over Budweiser, but even Heineken and Fosters can beat this. And, if you’re out eating Italian, opt for a glass or bottle of wine instead.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2006 From my notes, March ’05. Pale gold color with a small white head. Grainy, bittersweet aroma. Tastes bitter, nothing else challenging the bitter flavor. A bit metallic too, like nickel. Dry crisp finish. Not a thing to get again.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Poured from the bottle, a pale yellow (aka BuckeyeBoy’s "pee colour") with an unappealing frothy white head. A very strong metallic aroma - maybe a hint of lemon. A strong sharp metallic taste as well along with a fizzy mouthfeel. Absolutely terrible.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 0.66l bottle courtesy of ozujsko (thanks!)
This poured a pale golden colour with a medium sized fluffy but thick white head that went away at a medium pace. The nose is bad... Bad dusty malt with some weak skunkiness...ugh. The taste is watery, so smooth I guess, some ok maltiness, but the big (for a macro pale lager) but crude hopiness dominates the end and the (long) aftertaste. Could be worse, but still far from good.

Pretty underwhelming. Entirely forgettable. As pale lagers go, I would probably just get an MGD and save myself the extra dollar.If you’re looking to try an Italian beer, pick up a Peroni instead.
