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

kidmartinek (4047) - 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? What’s the point? A horrible beverage. It even says agua, malte, maiz, and lupolo on the bottle(water, barley, corn, hops). At least they don’t try to hide this is an adjuct lager and not even real beer.

darioklc (624) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAR 24, 2013
Nice clear amber color with white head. It’s somewhat fruity but not special. It’s satisfying but almost. Typical pale lager.

Dorqui (2154) - 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.

ogivlado (6651) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottled 660ml. -Pale golden coloured, big (huge) bubbles of carbonation, airy white head that went away fast, cornflakes in the nose. Empty, dry salty water with minimal notes of malt and corn. Typical Italian crappy 0.66l lager.

Marko (4418) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 14, 2013
This is brewed by Forst, not even mentioned on Menabrea’s site anymore. Poured a yellow-golden body with a fizzy medium sized white head that went away fast. Slightly skunky aroma, notes of vegetables, slightly acidity, some maltiness. The taste is that vegetabley, herbal hopiness, dry, almost no sweetness, hardly any bitterness, somewhat salty though. Not offensive, a typical Italian crap lager, maybe some sweetish corn notes.

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
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.

Vargatul (139) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - NOV 9, 2012
