1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fra fat på fortausrestaurant i Livorno: en kjærkommen tørsteslukker etter å ha tatt lokaltoget tilbake fra Firenze. Kaldt og forfriskende, men helt uten særpreg eller mersmak.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma has high maltiness. Clear golden, good frothy head. In taste the malting is also covering other flavors. light, dry and perky, medium body, standard carbonation. Too one-sided for me with not good enough flavors to enjoy.

Bottle @ Poggio. Two finger foam disappear quickly. No aromas. Watery. Slight bitter finish. Boring thirst killer.

Had at Fresco by Scotto with Timmy and Peter. Very good pale lager... berry taste that I wasn’t expecting. Did not taste like another watery lager.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mine does not say original, it says italia birra. Drank directly from a bottle and it looks like pale lager. Weird processed aroma. Sweeter, old lager feel with some interesting background, if I put it in a nice way. Pretty good sizzle. A little cagey at times, you know like wew. Its OK for 4.5% but it is a little rude for a pale lager. If alky content was any more, it may induce a gag reflex. It must be a little old, thats all I can figure. Not as good as some other pale lager italy beers I’ve had. Hey, I’m a pale lager liker and this is a little below average, I guess I would feel differently if it was fresh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice clear appetizing amber, though the white head is a bit scanty. Aroma is mainly fruity, pear and apple, with a malty undertone. Flavor has a good malty foundation and firm notes of apple and pear, not special but still satisfying. Mouthfeel has average body and a decent amount of tingle. For a pale lager, not too shabby.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale yellow with decent head. The aroma consists mainly of grass/straw. The flavor starts out with the same grassy hints that were found in the aroma along with a surprising bit of hop bitterness. I wasn’t expecting much from this brew but I was proven wrong. This is a decent beer and one that would be nice on hot summer day.
