Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 31, 2008
660 ml bottle. A clear pale blonde beer with a decent and enough persistent white head. The aroma is lightly malty with notes of cereals and a light herbal touch. The flavour has a medium sweetness and some grassy hops. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry finish with almost medium bitterness. Pretty decent for an industrial Italian beer, but doesn’t differentiate itself from milion of other lagers.

Standard pale gold pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet aroma of corn and light malt. Flavor is similar, though seemingly a little skunky on the finish. No big deal.

FrankC (6) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2008 does not count
Bottle, 330ml. My uncle recently came back from Italy and brought with him back a few beers for me. Fluffy white head atop a very pale golden body. A slightly malty and corny aroma. Fairly soft on the palate but quite enjoyable, it suits the style of beer quite well.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 22, 2007
Al bar fuori dalla stazione a Milano, 33cl - lasciamo perdere il prezzo da furto (mentre al supermarket si trova a 1 euro circa) - aroma molto cerealoso, maltato, dolcino; sapore leggero e insipido con un po’ di secchezza nel finale giusto per far presenza. "Sa di vecchio" disse qualcuno; forse è la sua caratteristica più evidente. Tra le lager italiane da supermercato, comunque, rimane discreta.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of fiulijn. Clear, golden with a dense, white head. Clean, malty nose. Medium body, lightly sweet malts and a somewhat floral hopping before a rather bitter finish. A very decent lager. 180907

First of all, muchly thanks to buddy, El Gaucho for the bottle smuggled all the way from Italy in his luggage! But, my god, this beer is a huge stinky corn bomb. The nose is strong sour mash corn with hints of deisel fuel. The flavors are very strong creamed corn and again that horrific "Colt 45" twang mixed with a robust deisel fume. This corny mess was very difficult to finish...I eventually gave up trying to force mine down. I’m assuming from ElGaucho’s more forgiving rating that my bottle may have suffered a bit in handling...but hey, it’s a beer I’ve never had, right?

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2007
This has an extremely pale yellow body filled with very active carbonation and a decently sized frothy head. The aroma is initially skunky, but that fades somewhat to reveal faint traces of grainy malt, corn, and soft metals. Light bodied. There’s some malt presence in the flavor, but mainly it’s corny and bittered by two blades of grass and tin.

33 cL bottle. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Grassy dry nose. Slight sweet malt and bitterhops in a rather grassy flavoured blend. Not bad but not thrilling either.

Grovlam (4189) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Papsoe, yet another great tasting @ Henrik´s] Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Clear flat looking body with a yellow color. Aroma of cardboard, light grassy notes, hint of hay, almost buttery like note over the palate. Light to medium bodied with a light dry texture and a soft carbonation. Light bitter and somewhat sweet flavor. Light dry and bitter finish. 18-09-2007
