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.

Green bottle syndrom!! Pale straw colour. Relatively bitter, but skunky flavour. Crisp and spritzy mouthfeel.

A bit light for my taste, but on a hot afternoon in Rome I guess this is the thing..

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear gold in color, the head is white, the lace minimal. Nose is malt, the front is malt, top thin, the finish is dry, acidic, lightly hopped, another utterly forgettable beer. Does not make my current 1000 beer master list.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
You know, this is probably the best green bottled imported lager/pilsner Iíve sampled. Good head and lace, mild hop aroma very well balanced with malt. Pale golden color with the most insane effervescence Iíve ever seen for this stly of beer.
A good drinking beer with no real flawsespecially good for the style(IMO) but nothing outstanding in the grand scheme of beers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very light yellow color and no head. A slightly hoppy aroma and a hoppy flavor a little like Urquell but not as bitter. It has a quite dry taste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light colour with a white quickly dissipating head. Fairly disappointing hoppy aroma. Flavour is mild and quite pleasant, but perhaps a bit boring. The hops clearly dominate the malts. The bitter finish could be longer lasting. Note: I think I may have been drinking this beer at too low a temperature. It seemed as if the last glass was somewhat maltier (and sweeter), which IMHO improved the beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 I detect some malt flavor, but not much. Better than Moretti, perhaps. Some crispness, and the warmer it gets, the maltier it is.
