Bottle, small stable head, clear deepish gold colour, light malty flavour, honey bready flavour with a light to medium bitterness. Boring, but quite drinkable and without fault.

tabernarius (34) - Pisa, ITALY - NOV 21, 2013
Beer connoisseurs will admit their moderate appreciation for Menabrea as being one of the best industrial pale lagers in Italy; I personally never quite found the difference between this and more infamous labels, like for example Moretti Baffo d’Oro. Stays on the drinkable side, but a Eurolager indeed.

marksolinski (19) - ITALY - SEP 30, 2013
La Menabrea non mi ha mai convinto del tutto. Slavata e con un finale amarognolo che non riesco proprio a farmi piacere.

worldbeertaste (1637) - AUSTRIA - SEP 7, 2013
Medium gold with a lasting, lacy, white, thin head. Smells of flowers, hay, malt, grain and toasted bread. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet pale malt, butter, light fruit with a bitter corn, dry slightly ashy finish. Enjoyable but not that refreshing on a hot day.

ogivlado (5723) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottled 330ml. -found somewhere in Italy, rated in Portugal. Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, cardboardish nose. Slight malty, cardboard and weak cereals with bitterish watery finish. Not good as I’ve expected.

erickok (3547) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 29, 2013
Clean golden body, very bubbly body. Simple grainy taste. Sweet start, simple and very boring. Mild dry bitterness. Okay when very cold, but boring for me. (65cl bottle from Carrefour Market in Torino)

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle from Douberd, thanks! Blonde. Hints of bread, grass and apple in the aroma. Thinnish. malty bready soft grassy flavor with apple. Not too bad.
