Aroma of fresh rolls with maise ontop to mkae them crunchy, corn lager malts. Taste is caramel , corn, sweetish, with some grassy herbal hops.

From a slender 11.2 oz. capped green bottle with a silver foil wrapped neck, no bottled/freshness date I could find. Poured a slightly hazy dull golden yellow with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of bread dough, a light lemon and a herbal hoppiness. Good lager carbonation and a softly crisp, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant, but average tasting, a nice bread doughy, plus with a sugary maltiness as well, a subtle lemon flavor that mixes with a light, softly spicy, herbal hoppiness, a very soft bitterness and a lemon herbal, sweet malty finish, not bad, but overall, average euro lager drinkability. A decent lager from Italy, comparable to other Italian lagers, passable, but average.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Aroma is grain and sweet carrots. Pale yellow color, ugly head, few lace. Grainy, bit floral, veggies, bitter metallic finish. Sticky start and dry finish. Yuck.

johndoughty (4234) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2006
Golden apperance poured from a bottle with a classic label design.Sounds very promising but it turned out to be bland with no distinctive taste.Probably quite refreshing on a warm day but so is a cup of tea.

JorisPPattyn (8395) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2006
Deep clear gold; ever so slightly off-white head, creamy. Nose: grassy, pilsner malts, "herb", dry and an aroma resembling raw, still bodywarm milk. Bitterish initial tase, grassy hops, going over in hyperclassic sweet pilsner malts. Light to medium bodied, ever so slightly burning MF, getting stronger with swallowing. They tried to make the archetypical German Pilsener in the classical way with Bock strenght. Nothing wrong with that, but does that make for a festive beer?

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2006
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Grassy malty aroma with maizeish hints. Flavour is dry papery and hoppy. Some maize and malts also there. Nice bottle, but not too exciting content...

TBone (13838) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled, alc. 4.8% (BB 02/2007)
Pale yellow, small white head. Sweet maize aroma. Carbonated mouthfeel. Weak flavor of herbal/grassy hops. Fancy bottle does not save this bulk lager.

mabjork (677) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled.Clear golden in colour, descent white head. it has an aroma that contains hops and corn. The flavour is dry and you can taste some hops, but mostly it’s got a watery taste. Thanks to Dorqui for this beer!

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 I have rerated this, and found it a more pleasant experience. Full flavour, nice bitter finish, a very refreshing beer. Should be more widely available.

I would think with 150 years behind ya, you’d brew a better beer. Or at least something different. Its ok I suppose if I need to be bored to death. I hope for my 150th birthday im not drinking something this mundane.
