1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Why do importers bring this stuff over here? There is nothing exceptional about this beer, except that it’s from Italy. Pours a clear, gold from the bottle. Aroma consists of cut grass. Head has multiple-sized bubbles, but they didn’t stay long. Flavor is crisp, but unimpressive. Carbonation dominates the mouthfeel. No aftertaste to speak of, but I guess that makes it a bit quenching, refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Yellow, fizzy. Slightly skunky aroma. Mmmm, maybe it’s... I don’t know... old? Taste is bland, but like others have said it would serve as a decent refreshing beer... I guess. Probably better if fresh, but that ain’t gonna save this one. My first italian beer. Woohoo.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap. Golden yellow with big white head. Aroma of sweet straw. It is weak and bubbly, but finishes kinda dry. After walking around Rome all day it tasted pretty decent.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I enjoyed this beer, though it looks like a beer shouldn’t - incredibly yellow. Tasted pretty good at the beginning as it was very cold. But the flavor grew old by half glass.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from bottle, pale as expected. Malt aroma. Beer was very cold at first, and it tasted OK, with more hop than malt. It, however, began to bite as the beer warmed and did not finish well. Overall, a mediocre beer.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale yellow, thin head, poor retention. Little definable aroma. Very dilute watery palate. My friend was drinking a Boag’s Strongarm Bitter at the same time, and when I tasted it for comparison, the Boag’s tasted like it should be the one with the premium price by comparison! Truly forgettable.
...and what is with that dude in the green suit on the label? Yeah, THAT’S going to sell you a lot of beer!
