Grabbed this off a shelf in Bridgeport in a Jewel. Well, I actually enjoyed this. Nothing fabulous or amazing. But as far as a lager to drink with the pizza I had I found it to be a nice addition. Light slightly bitter with some cloying sweetness. Short finish.

660ml Bottle shared with a friend. Pours a very clear pale yellow colour, some hoppiness in aroma, taste is very clincally clean a bit sweet and refreshing. Fairly inoffensive beer which is fine but flavour has been sacrificed somewhat.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 12 oz. embossed brown bottle with no bottled/freshness.
Poured a clear lager yellowish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing.
Aromas of lemon, spicy hops and husky grain.
Light carbonation and a softly crisp, smooth light bodied mouthfeel.
Sweet earthy, metallic malts, a light spiciness from the hops, mild in itís bitterness, more of a crispness from the malts, a light lemon flavor towards the end and a dryish sweet grainy finish.
Not bad, but, personally, this would not be my first choice of Italian lagers to enjoy with a meal or on itís own.

Bottle - Poured a clear yellow in color with a medium whitish head. Aroma has both fruity malts and some hops. Flavor is definitely malty with a small amount of hops mixed in. Neither aroma nor flavor were strong or distinctive. OK, but not great...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottled] Yellow with average head. Grassy nose. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel and light-medium body. There is actually a hint of bitterness in the finish. On the high end as far as dull commercial lagers go.

I didnít get a lot of aroma, but flavor was almost sodium rich, slightly salty, not a bright hop flavor but some hops, a little Vienna like malt character, almost like a Mexican lager, but without the leathery finish common in Mexican beer. Smooth and drinkable with a meal, but not quality hop crispness or complex malt character. Good but not great.

Nightfall - this tastes nothing like Heineken. This beer is very sweet and it extremely easy to drink. It pours golden with very little head and not an expensive beer to buy either. True it is a bit simple for my taste, but a good "night on the porch" brew none-the-less. The Italians are so doing okay with beer Iíd say.

Your average lager beer. Nothing special, similar to Heineken, you can find it evrywhere in Italy and itís cheap. Nice refreshing company to your italian meal if you donít want to have a bottle of Chianti
