A well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness coming through from the aromatic yeasts used in its production. Pale yellow appearance; moderately light bodied; mild bitterness.

Tarnished golden color. Aroma of hops and malt. Flavor begins with a light grapey sweetness. Hops at the finish, except that the grapey component is still a bit noticeable. It’s a bit thin (well it’s a pale lager), and it made me think of the grape sodas of my childhood. Not to say it is cloyingly sweet, nor is it all that grapey. Just enough something to remind me of concord grapes. Just a hint. Beats Stella all to heck. Seems to go well with spicey food.

Aurelius (4743) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Nice malty aroma with a bit of fruitiness. Kinda cool green/brown bottle, foil label, darkish straw gold, big white head. Malty lager flavor with a little bit of tartness. Medium hopping. A decent choice at the local Italian restaurant.

My bottle reads 4.8% but the foil around the neck is printed with "150° Anniversario", so it may be <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/menabrea-150°-an />
Mid-golden with faint streams of carbonation under a creamy white head that settles slowly to a thin film. Mild cattiness fades (yet lingers) under pronounced bread and herb aromas. Flavor follows suit with an additional touch of sweetness. Not the best, but I was expecting much worse.

Had a bottle of this at a nice Italian restaurant. The aroma was very unpleasant. AI passed the glass around the table and everyone agreed. A beer should not smell like this one does. Unfortunatelly, the beer tastes too much like the aroma, but not quite as bad. It has a flavor and feel kind of like champaigne.

Not a terrible beer, much more hopped than was expected, still sweet, but not overly so, decent drinking brew, but nothing special.ok.

Bottle. Pale golden beer with a light head. The aroma is sugary sweet and the flavour is gently sweet and bitter. Overall a palatable continental lager.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is bland malts with grains. Flavor sickly sweet with an almost puckering. This is not good. Avoid the pretty foil on the bottle and pass this one by.
