2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.2 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Best Before End: 07.2010.
Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a bubbly, thinning, white head. A typical lager thus far.
Smell: Sweet-scented, humble malted barley disparaged by displeasing, particularly strong scents of skunk and filthy, well-used coinage.
Taste: Light pale malts, lightly grainy and sweet. Light, spicy hop character and bitterness. Regrettably, you get a strong skunkiness and metallic twang forced upon you. It’s pretty gross, and this well over eight months before the expiration date. Jesus, I’d hate to see how this stuff is past its prime. Finishes dry with the only tastes lasting this long being the bad ones.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: Some pale lagers are simply guilty of being bland and forgettable. Oh, if only that were the case here! This one’s ghastly and just plain awful.

Good dry aroma. This is pretty light but a nice dry flavor, pretty easy drinking and tasty. Easy summer beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Jamies, Italian Restaurant, Oxford, 24-09-09 Pours gold with white head and much like the previous pale lager Messina that I had at this establishment the only things that really stood about it was how stunningly mediocre it was. Maltier that the Mesina, with graininess showing, its just ok, no more no less. A4 A3 F5 P3 Ov9 2.4

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Green bottle, pours a clear light gold with a white head that diminishes to a thick ring, aromas of faint grass, malt with malt bread and sugar sweetness, there were hints of sweetness I find in some European lagers, flavor of malt with some faint lemon citrus bitterness, more bitterness than I would expect in a pale lager, mouth feel is less than medium, I enjoyed this beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle.Pours well into the glass , sparkling amber in colour witha loosley packed unstable head of white foam. Skunky aroma and strongly hopped. Thin and watery in the mouth with a bitterness that sits on the tongue. Not one of Italy’s finest.
