1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale amber with a frothy white head. Aroma was of a poor American macrobrewed beer. Weak and watery in the mouth. Almost without flavor. Definitely without merit.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[on tap] Golden body, medium carbonation. Medium-sized head. Rather weak aroma, mostly malty (biscuit?). Taste is clear, with a good maltiness and a decent crisp finish. Nothing original here, but the beer is drinkable and refreshing, especially from the tap. This one may have been a bit underrated: I'd take a Menabrea over a Peroni/Moretti ANY day.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2004 This beer presented well when I poured it into the glass, nice golden colour with a large white frothy head. And that is where it ended, wasn't wrapped in the aroma, and the flavour that followed was no better. Unbalanced grainy taste.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sharp initial hop aroma from the bottle. Replaced in the glass by a light fruit scent. Thin looking slightly dirty yellow-gold. Dirty colour but clean and clear. Light foam and lacing. Pretty decent tasting basic lager. Nice balance of sweetness and hops. No bitterness but a light taste in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours yellow gold with a tall white head. Another beer from a free bottle of sample from a distributor. My second of the evening. Taste was almost pure malt and some underlying hops. Not too bad, but nothing complex or astounding. Average at best. Finish was a little crisp with some malt added. It's OK.

White weak head. Pale golden color. Aroma is grainy with herbal notes. Flavor is grainy too with corn tones ending in a crispy hoppy finish. Light bodied

Well sometimes you come across a beer that is so watery and boring that you end up thinking"what the f*** was that?"There was a little hop taste otherwise absolutly nothing that resembles a beer.Do the Italians really this shit?

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Corn aroma with little else. Very clear light straw colour with thin, fizzy, fully-diminishing head. Corn, grain flavours. Slightly sweet, minor hops. Very watery palate. Not doing much for me. Bottle (greenish brown).

A very light golden coloured lager beer, with snow white froag. Fresh like summer, with taste of corn, malt and fruit.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grainy maize & old grass aroma. Clear yellow pasturised. Grainy maize flavour matching the aroma that gives way to the hop bitterness but no other aftertaste I could find. Thin mouthfeel.
