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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2003
Really thin, with a sweet maltyness, some drying, lightly herbal hay/grassy hops, very light, with low bitterness, unexciting, but better than most.

Pours a very clear golden, with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, malty with a strange almost honey-like quality. Flavor is malty, similar to a dortmunder, with that strange honey flavor. Sweet, with a mildly dry finish. I wonder if my bottle was a little old.

Gold in colour with a large white head and great lace. Slight aroma of hops and grass and a nice hoppy flavour. Finishes with a small bitterness. This was a good beer for a hot day.

Golden color. Not as sour as I expected from an Italian lager, on the contrary somewhat sweet and butterscotchy. Medium bitterness.

From one of Italys smallest breweries comes Menabrea. A pale, lager - nothing special really

Went for dinner tonight at Cafe Diplomatico, a classic old school Italian eatery in Toronto. My wife and I had just come from a screening of a documentary called "Elvis Italiano" about an Italian Elvis impersonator in Montreal, and strangely enough, Elvis came on the stereo just as we entered the restaurant. Anyway, I figured I'd go with an Italian beer to complment the food, and this was the only one they had. It has a very pale yellow colour with minimal head. Aroma has weak hop notes, and is slightly skunky due to the green bottle. Body is light and spritzy, flavour is mild, a little grassy with a touch of bitterness in the finish. It did a good job cutting the heat of the spicy Arrabiata sauce that I had on my cheese ravioli (which was awesome!), but otherwise, it's a pretty typical Euro-lager.

Very blond beer with a medium quickly disappearing white head. The head has fairly large bubbles. Weak hop and yeast aroma and taste. A mild beer with a light bitterness.
