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.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 2005-01-01, as Birra della Storia (Alpa snc), 4.8% ABV, 4-2-4-2-8=20
Blond color. Simple aroma: corn, vanilla, cereals. Ordinary Lager, with a raw cereals flavor and very light lemon. Quite strong bitterness.

2003-09-18, 5-3-5-3-11
Blond color. Honeyish aroma. Simple, but again the pleasant honey impression (and some malt, paper, straw). Better than the 150° Anniversario.

Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear, very pale yellow with a creamy, white head. Papery aroma, with light doughy touches. Light sweet flavour with a little lemon, paper, dried out dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Drying finish, with lingering paper notes. Mediocre.
