highlandlad (1463) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2005
One of the better Mediterranean lagers. But that’s not saying much. Pale gold with a short hello-goodbye head. Surprisingly sweet biscuity-malt aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, thin to medium body. Lots of malt on the tongue and some balancing bitterness. Better than expected - but my expectations were low.... (Bottle)

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pale golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.Malty metallic aroma with a bit of hops but very small bit.Light malty taste with a bit of maybe some caramel in there along with a decent hop showing at the end.Nothing special at all but for$1.29 it was worth a try.

A good solid grainy beer. Bloody expensive though. Lots of malt and grains.

Bottle. Took this beer in a Giorgio restaurent, wanted to try it, my expectation was low but not that low. Make a test, close ur eyes, take 2 glasses, one with this beer and another one with gaseous water and try to figure out witch one is the beer. J’ai essayer cette biere dans un resto Giorgio. Je ne m’attendais pas a grand chose de cette biere, je me disais qu’elle devait etre comme la Morreti mais, elle etait vraiment pire que ce que je croyais. Entre cette biere la et de l’eau gazeifier, j’peux vous dire qu’il n’y a pas une grande difference.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 I’ll forgive Italy for this because they also gave us Sophia Loren. Pouring yellow with a short-lived white head, this smells of damp straw and corn syrup... but not unpleasantly so. Little flavor but some slightly malty sweetness. Little evidence of hops in aroma or taste. Sticky finish.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2004
Large white head, lots of lacing. Unfortunately this is starting to make me think the beer will be crap as so many of the bad beers I have had recently have had pristine whit eheads with lacing. Thi sone doesn’t last so long. Smells of straw. Tastes like a bland lager. Some sugar. Neglible hops. Neglible malt. Oh well. Was cheap (ish) and has no bad metals or anything. Unlikely to buy it again however.

This beer was terrible. Aroma is unpleasant, taste is sour and makes you think of public toilets.

jgb9348 (5472) - 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.
