Ingredients: Malt; maize; hops.
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.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2004
Sharp initial hop aroma from the bottle. Replaced in the glass by a light fruit scent. Thin looking slightly dirty yellow-gold. Dirty colour but clean and clear. Light foam and lacing. Pretty decent tasting basic lager. Nice balance of sweetness and hops. No bitterness but a light taste in the finish.

Pours yellow gold with a tall white head. Another beer from a free bottle of sample from a distributor. My second of the evening. Taste was almost pure malt and some underlying hops. Not too bad, but nothing complex or astounding. Average at best. Finish was a little crisp with some malt added. It's OK.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 14, 2004
White weak head. Pale golden color. Aroma is grainy with herbal notes. Flavor is grainy too with corn tones ending in a crispy hoppy finish. Light bodied

Well sometimes you come across a beer that is so watery and boring that you end up thinking"what the f*** was that?"There was a little hop taste otherwise absolutly nothing that resembles a beer.Do the Italians really this shit?

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2004
Corn aroma with little else. Very clear light straw colour with thin, fizzy, fully-diminishing head. Corn, grain flavours. Slightly sweet, minor hops. Very watery palate. Not doing much for me. Bottle (greenish brown).

jasg (12) - Rødovre, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2004
A very light golden coloured lager beer, with snow white froag. Fresh like summer, with taste of corn, malt and fruit.

Choos (644) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2004
Grainy maize & old grass aroma. Clear yellow pasturised. Grainy maize flavour matching the aroma that gives way to the hop bitterness but no other aftertaste I could find. Thin mouthfeel.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2003
Very pale gold clear with a large short lasting white head with interesting dripping rings of lace. From here on it's down hill - rapidly!. Medium intensity corny grainy malt (cornflakes!) aroma - I really dislike that!. Depressingly super watery thin body. Medium intensity sweet, corny malt and very faint soapy stale hops flavours. Light watery sweet finish and aftertaste. Definitley the worst Italian Beer I have rated.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2003
The only reason I can think that they exported this from Italy to Texas is some cruel anti-Bush joke foisted by angry Europeans, or perhaps they had no domestic market for it because everyone else was drinking far more enjoyable wines. Overcarbonated yellow beer, aggressive palate, corn aroma and an obnoxious flavor of corn and vinegar, with a dry but slightly bitter aftertaste. This bottle was new to the shelves at my local store but I would guess this sailed the seven seas before arriving on American shores. Even if I had this straight from the brewer's tap, I cannot imagine there being any redeeming qualities.

Gold with a big head that quickly vanishes yet has lots of big bubbles. Slight hop aroma. Really wierd, quite disgusting taste. It maybe the malt or possibly corn. Thick texture but only light bitterness. Avoid!
