3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Infinitely better than the Peroni lager I had the other day. The best thing I can say about this pilsener is that it is totally inoffensive. Light hop aroma and flavor. Very drinkable and repeatable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blond beer with a small quickly disappearing head. Weak hop aroma. Bitter hoppy short taste. It has a long medium bitter aftertaste.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
No aroma. Gold in color, smallish head. Basically a watered-down pilsner that makes you wish it had more taste. Some sips had no taste at all (how much of this is water?); others had a vague pilsner flavor. I'd have to say a beer that vacillates between tasting like Coors Light and tasting vaguely like Pilsner Urquell is pretty offensive.

Average european lager. Light, crisp, carbonated. Kinda well-made overall. Fresh mouthfeel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin, light bodied. Just about average in every way. Fairly quaffable though. Taste remarkably similar to Heineken?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crystal clear, deep golden lager. Large white head which is fully diminishing and leaves no lacework.
The nose is of honey, chicken broth and lightly floral hops. Not much flavor. Thin, but well-balanced.
Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp finish.
Not bad for the style. Not really very good either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I've been wanting to try this one for ages, but have never wanted six at a time. While up at Six Flags, I had dinner down the street (east of the park on 43)at a quaint little Italian grille known as "Vito's" (some of the most authentic Italian I have ever had - Highly recommended). Thus a perfect opportunity for sampling was presented.
This brew pours from the bottle a light sparkling straw. The average wispy white frothy head has light lacing and stays a while. The nose is fresh and clean, with a hint of flowers. The flavor is as one would expect from a pils, crisp and light - summertime refreshing if not deep. The palate is light and watery with moderate carb, and a clean finish. Typical pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Italians make great wine and women. They should stick to what they are good at. This is a more tasteful American macro brewed in Italy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Subtle hop aroma. Very light body with traces of diacetyl. Decent, but nothing exciting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes fine, I guess. A bit of fermented taste, but not in that typical, you know, beer-like way.
