SKUNK JUICE!!!! But they trick you by giving it absolutely no smell. Tricky bastards thought they could get away with it. Well they didn’t expect me to come along and tell the world about the biohazardous waste there shipping to us. Don’t buy!!

Poured pale golden with creamy white head. Soon however, the head became rather clumpy. Skunky, sweet malt/faint hop aroma. Nothing very special about this one. Light in flavor, had a strange wet paper taste to it. My first beer from Italy.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Poured a golden colored brew with almost no head. Aroma is quite thin and almost non-existent. Taste is a light mix of sweetness with some floral malt. No aftertaste to speak of and carbonation is not good. Body is quite thin. Overall, this is a refreshing lager that doesn’t have much in term of taste.

Smells like lemons and cookies? Am I crazy? Apperance is golden and bubbly. The taste is a little weak with some sour and bitter flavors present. Its aftertaste is a bit dry. It would do ok on a hot day.

Halfway decent. Looks and tastes like the Italian’s version of an American Standard. I can definitely tell that it’s a Heineken product. Not bad, but not terrific either.

Were it not for the moustachioed man on the label I might not think as hihgly as I do. Not that I think all too highly of this. On the one hand, standard fair like what gets shot down here a lot. On the other is it not having a bunch of off flavors and the sense of being adjunct laden.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Skunky aroma, nothing special to report, just seems to get stocked at bars because its one of a short supply of beers from Italy.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber color,small white head that actually had a decent hangtime.The aroma was lightly malty and lemon grass,with a mild hop presence.Light malt taste with a mild corn flavor coming through and mild fruit possibly lemon.The after taste is mild hops and the finish is fairly clean.Not a bad brew but there is little here to really excite me.Well worth trying atleast once but nothing more then that.

Recommended by the owner? of a good Italian restaurant in Windsor as a "darker, more interesting beer." Sheesh. And I could have been hitting up Patrick O’Ryan and his 25 beers on tap.
