Pours a big white, foamy head. Hay aroma. Bitter, malty taste with a touch of hop bitterness. Not as good as the other Italians

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2003
The liquor store clerk recomended this beer to me. Pale golden color with a thin white head. Slightly hoppy and malty flavor. Probably one of the better Italian beers that I've had.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2003
Very pale gold colour, lots of white head and lacing. Aroma starts skunky. Also has some yeastiness and light hops. Flavour is mostly bitter, but accompanied by an almost salty, slight tangy taste. Lingering bitterness to finish.

(Bottle) Pours a medium, foamy, white head and a pale gold body. Grass aroma. Flavours of cereal and corn. Middle of the road.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JAN 20, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 Finally even Italy has a good commercial beer. The taste is bitter and malty, with good traces of hop in the aftertaste.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 1, 2003
Weak head, I meant very weak head (lasted for aprox 10 sec), low on gas. It did have some bitterness of unknown to me source but overall was plain and watery. Unpleasant to drink. First beer of 2003!

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Bottle. A light to clear golden color. A big skunk dropped a bomb in here but I also pick up some of the hops. A slightly sweet flavor. Dry and a little musty. What is amazing to me is that this beer won the World 1997 & 1998 Lager Beer Award from some organization.
