2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Straw color with a taller, white head that settles to a chunk of sturdy bubbles. Very dry aromas, with only a hint of malt and some herbal hops. A sweetness through out the quaff that is not lead to much of a thought that it was produced by malt. Hint of floral bitterness and a touch of resin. Quite simple and only marginally better than most american macros.

Pretty good stuff (although, not as good as the La Rossa). Malty, nice color and flavor.

like this over peroni, slighty more of the golden malt flavors coming through. cool and crisp and easy to drink. nice golden color. thin and uninteresting. heineken is not italian

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear and yellow, with a good white head, big carbonation. Spot on.
Nose is typical skunky euro-lager smell, corny, floral, not terribly pleasant, but neither offensive.
Taste: not much here. whisper thin, barely enters the mouth, and quits before it comes. No flavor, but not awful, just very minor. Lightest body, no discernible finish, disappointing.
Must be great at washing away the heat of spicy Italian food, but on it’s own, negligible.
their doppelbock rocks, though.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma is of straw and slightly sour. The flavor is of straw and grain on a sweet and sour background. The end is quite dry from hops, but in the aftertaste it turns metallic.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A decent pale lager. Nice full flavour although lots of corn. It has a plesant spiciness that comes through. Its best cold with Italian food. Great golden colour.

Clean, at lest in apperance, little lacing, not a bad lagwer, but nothing spectacular either. Its worth a try.

This is a clear straw colored pilsner that has a thin head. It has a citrus aroma with some hoppiness. The taste is crisp and clean with no aftertaste.

nothing special about this, tastes like a heineken to me. probably a little better than a peroni the other italian beer, but that is really not saying much. a very average beer
