Soester77 (4) - copenhagen, USA - NOV 8, 2004 does not count
This beer was terrible. Aroma is unpleasant, taste is sour and makes you think of public toilets.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Pale golden coloured body with a thin white head & plenty of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of malt, cardboard, skunk and a slight amount of hops. Ultra-light bodied; Unpleasant malt/skunk flavour with harsh hops and little else. Aftertaste light & tart-not pleasant in the slightest! Overall-horrible...after all, it is italian! But, at least now I know :-). I sampled this 12 counce bottle purchased at the North Street Market in Onancock (Eastern Shore), Virginia on 28-August-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2004
White head, pale yellow colour, flavour is good for thirst, but no more. Standard bitterness, it that means anything. Not bad, but overall, this beer struck me as pretty ordinary.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
Pretty standard lager - the only other Italian beer I can clearly remember trying is Birra Moretti and this seems pretty similar. Pale yellow with plenty of carbonation. Aroma of light hops and flavour of light malts - relatively dry, somewhat fruity too.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 30, 2004
(on bottle)Apart from the pale, hazy yellow, it is surprisingly good beer. Very full, barley nose and a steady foamy head. Tha palate is very mild, not at all gassy or irritating. Very mild (and at bit sherryish?)finish.

Crockett (1006) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Pours light gold with a little white head. Very fizzy. Light hop nose, with a whiff of skunky apple. Lightly bitter wandering burnt notes. Dry finish with apples coming in a bit. Never liked this one.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2004
Tap, DBF 2004. Gold, thin white head and low condition. Low fruity malt in the nose, more malt and a slight chalky hop note in the mouth and a bitter finish with a faint fruity tang to it.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Sparkling clear apple juice body with big white head. Aroma is grainy/cereal, some grassy, light apple. Taste is medium sweet, grainy, some grassy, apple, light grassy bitterness in the finish. Light body. No surprises, nothing special, nothing offensive.
