Radek Kliber (6682) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 15, 2006
Bottle
Pale gold with medium-large white top. Little to no lacing. (3-)
Aroma of rice, pale plain grainy nose. Simple.
Very bland, light watery with some hints of sweet corn. Very light hop finish. Forgettable brew.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle @ Decemberfest 2006: Poured yellow, very little head. Aroma of corn, cardboard, malts, and grains. Flavour is cardboard and straw, and heavily carbonated at that. If I were Dogbert I’d probably wave my paw at Italian beer. *sigh*

thedm (5142) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 17, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated light and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops astringent soft rice and softly acidic. An OK brew just nothing special.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2006
Lemon and corn in the lightly herbal aroma. Lightly hazy blonde body is topped by a shy white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Somewhat metallic aroma is vaguely sweet but also offers a grainy character and some creamed corn. Very low bitterness. Watery, low carbonation, light body. Bottle (Ireland, May-06).

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle. Large off-white head that mostly diminished, decent lacing, carbonation, transparent, and an orange hue. Nose was malty, somewhat grassy and hint of hops. Flavor was malty, caramel, sweet, grassy, and some hops. Tingly mouthfeel and light-medium body. Just so-so.

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 (4278) - 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.

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?
