Enjoyable and drinkable lager. Nice outdoors and a hell of a lot better than the rest of the crap i get at cafes in milan.

Golden coloured with medium head. Somewhat malty aroma. Quite thin but it has a nice grassy bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice looking, frothy white head. Clear, golden yellow beer. Mild, slightly skunky, slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor fell right in line with the aroma, crispy, adjunct, slightly skunky with a somewhat soothing sweetness that led into the dry finish. Not offensive, but no way to celebrate your 150th anniversary.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
An orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is very light, but what i is there is malty with notes of straw. The flavor is boring malty with notes of straw, honey, and a sour sort of hops which gives it a dry finish - or is it the use of brewing cereal, that makes it sour? and the body is even thin. A totally boring beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Standard pale-straw in color. Very small white head is 99% diminishing. Luckily, I was able to get a non-skunked bottle -- the clean, yet faint aroma was of straw and honey. Lightly flavored-- corn, hay, straw. Slightly alcoholic in the finish. Not offensive, but totally uninteresting.

Bottled, at Le Tris, Bergamo, Italy.
Golden lager with a thin white vale. Rustic hop aroma with soft lager malts. Good structure with moderate bitterness and good length.

Nothing special. Golden, ok head. A little odd aroma, and flavor like all the rest.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malt, corn and slightly flowery nose.
Golden color, small champagne bubbles, ok white head.
Lightish body with a corn aftertaste.
Reminded me a lot of danish pilsners (which also contain maiz). Incidently danish lagers seem to be quite popular in Italy - I have to investigate the dynamics of this one day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Disappointing -the name and label suggested this would be something special: but it's bland, and lacking in any particular flavour. Not very crisp, not very tasty or even interesting to look at.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2003 Bottled. Golden colour. Rich but quickly vanishing head. Sweet with quite rich body. Papery malt flavour and a sugary finish.
