330 ml bottle. BB 07/05/15. From the brewery in Forst/Algund (BZ), Italy.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Honey sweetness, grainy malt and a hint of hoppy dryness in the aroma. The flavour is dry malt, honey sweetness and some papery dryness.

Thanks to Willems Urenkel for that one. Bottle looks really interesting. Beer in the glass zippy, huge head. Starts mild, malty, fine spicy. More and more dry, also a bit moldy. Some metallically notes. Okay.

A modern bottledesign for Forst. But only average. Light golden, clear, small head. Soft bitterness, a little bit hop, nothing unusual, a typical Forst.

Bottle, bought in Verona. Pours clear golden with a small creamy white film head. Aroma has sweet corn, light citrus, some hay. Medium carbonation, fine light and slightly watery. Flavour is mild, some corn, light sugary. Quite dull, but nothing wrong.

Una delle lager italiane migliori ma non certo buona! Forse giusta per una cena poco impegnativa.

66cl bottle at 1.20€. Pale gold with a fine foamy head reducing to a nice lacing. Nose of hay and sweet malts. Similar to the Premium version, more grainy and body. Lager malts are the main plate, with other grains, corn, a touch of honey and some grassy notes. Overall sweet, very sublte bitterness but mostly sweet that worsen as it warms up, unbalanced... Not dry, dusty, sticky. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. In the middle between Premium (lighter but cleaner) and Kronen (flavored, crisp and spicy). I like Forst products but was expecting more on the hoppy side. This tend to resemble a sweet Dortmunder/Helles. If you like dense grainy sweetish beers this is for you, otherwise you’ll hate it. I put it 50/50.
