2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12-ounce bottle. Pours a standard golden-lager color and a small white head that recedes so fast, you’d think there was a warrant out for its arrest. No aroma whatsoever. Flavors include grains and seltzer water with an apple-like finish. Light body and full carbonation. Crisp and clean. Refreshing, but not much to speak of here.

Se questa "birra" rappresenta l’Italia all’estero stiamo messi davvero bene.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought several bottles during my holiday in Italy. The beer has a golden color and a small white head, Co2 level is ok. The aroma contains tones of malts, hops and a little citrus is noticable. The taste is a little sweet with some light tones of hops. Further it’s pretty watery. The finish is refreshing and a little bitterness from the hops is noticable.
The best lager Italy has to offer. It’s well drinkable comparing to the others.

Fully transparent almost without any hint of colour. But no surprise there - as it is a lager for warm summer days. Very small head, and the beer do die quite fast (so drink up!). The little taste there is hold a hint of sweetneess, almost no hops. Overall very refreshing, with close to no lingering after taste. A nice alternative to sparkling water.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Transfer from BA review on 10-31-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a thick and large white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to give a nice level of lacing on the side of the glass and a very persistent white film on the top of the brew.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of bready like smell. Mixed with these aromas is a light skunky and light citrus hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins of malt and a sweeter corn and caramel flavor. The caramel fades way to more corn sweetness as well as some more bready like malt flavors. In the end a very light herbal hop flavor greets the tongue alongside a light paper like taste.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer lighter with a carbonation level that is rather average.
Overall – Ah… Nothing I would really want to drink again and nothing I would recommend.

Pint from Sabattini's Newcastle. Pours pale gold, reasonable head. A bit malty, but also a touch sour - dodgy pint perhaps

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Probably the best-known Italian standard lager, with snow white, loose head and golden blonde colour; bland, some sweet malts and a bit of grassy hops in the nose, taste equally bland, thinnish mouthfeel, grainy sweetishness and watery finish. Okay as a thirst-quencher when you’re in Italy but not much else.
