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.

Skunky aroma, smooth piney flavored palate. Surprisingly drinkable, although still nowhere near enjoyable.

sleepdirt (169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 2, 2002
Sweet at first, then slight rotting fruit taste. Actually pretty good hop balance. Refreshing, that’s it.

Aubrey (3443) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2002
Clear and pale gold with a lasting white head. Light and clean on the palate; not unlike carbonated water. A little sour/tart in the middle, which I found interesting. Finishes with a sweet, ’white-wine-like’ dryness. Went well with my red sauce pasta.

legion242 (2233) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2002
Very pale with almost green tint and slightly opaque due to floaties; Head was billowy and white; Nose had a clean skunkiness that reminded me of Stella. Clean Saaz character. Thin palate. Little bit of perfume. Delicate.

Golden coloured. Medium bodied, medium bitter. Well brewed standard lager.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Kinda light, but yall know that when they put the foil on it the stuff's straight. Goes down easy, even on the first beer.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 13, 2001
Would rate much higher but for the off-putting aftertaste and slightly skunky nose. Taste hoppy, lively; very drinkable (maybe because it’s 90 degrees here and AC, what’s AC?). Haven’t had a lot of Italian beers; this doesn’t really persuade me one way or another.
