Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2013
66cl (22oz) bottle poured into an Imperial Pint glass. Note to self: Get Birra Antoniana on this site to review. Appearance: Screaming at me, and screaming loud -- ADJUNCT LAGER! The beer is a clear as day yellow color with a super bright two-finger head on top that goes away after a few minutes. Thin layer of bright foam on top, and decent lacing. Looks good for what it is. Smell: Thereís basically nothing there. A very faint hay and corn sweetness sort of aroma, but itís extremely subtle. Nothing particularly bad about it, but Iíve never smelled a beer so uninteresting. Taste/feel: Like the smell, faint as all hell... definitely drinking like a light lager. Some slight hay and corny flavors. Incredibly mild, and essentially just what I expected from this brew. The feel is thin with high carbonation as well. Really not nearly as sweet as some adjunct lagers here in the United States, which is probably due to the common Americanís obsession with sweetness. I appreciate the fact that Italy lists ingredients on their beers -- the third ingredient in this beer is corn grits. Overall, it tastes like an Italian Budweiser. Nothing special here. I really got nothing out of this except a little bit of a buzz.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Good beer with golden color and beautiful head. Body is not s carbonated as several years ago, so itís refreshing and easy drinkable. Aroma of grass. Taste is common for rice pale lager but with pleasant bitterness.

Bottle 0.66L. Clear yellow body with a medium, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing with virtually no lacing. Light malty and hoppy (herbal) aroma. Moderate bitter flavour with very light malty sweetness. Light body with watery texture; soft carbonation.

A completely nondescript and inoffensive lager. Tastes reasonably well when properly chilled.

kidmartinek (4446) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Golden watery pour with no head. Smells like bitter corn malt. Taste is corn syrup and mouthfeel is thick. Why? Whatís the point? A horrible beverage. It even says agua, malte, maiz, and lupolo on the bottle(water, barley, corn, hops). At least they donít try to hide this is an adjuct lager and not even real beer.

Dorqui (2168) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 9, 2013
Bottled. Pale golden color, medium head of short resistance, discreet bubbly aspect. Dull dampen cereals aroma, notes of malt, corn and grassy. Discreet prickly taste, a lot watery with a modest bitter final. Inconsistant.
