Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Sehr milder Antrunk, leicht herb und Getreidig. Im Mittelteil wir das Bier etwas herber, im Unterton leicht malzig. Erfrischend, eher mild, im Vergleich zu anderen italienischen Lagern doch noch angenehm würzig unnnd herb, vor allem da die Geschmacksnote im Abgang weiter an Stärke zunimmt. Etwas fruchtiger Abgang, leicht malzig, angenehm. Test vom 11.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,9,10,9,6,9 - 8,70

imdownthepub (12910) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Keg at The Windham Arms, Sheringham, Norfolk. Pale gold with fizzed head. Heavy carbonization here, gassy with wet paper towel notes. Thin in the close. Not pleasant.

Benzai (12768) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Sampled from bottle. Very clear golden color, medium sized white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell and taste malts, hay, slightly bitter. Watery texture, low body, low carbonation. Drinkable, but that’s it.

JorisPPattyn (9251) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2014
Good, just yellowish dense head over golden beer. Bit milky, grainy nose, green leaves. Bitterish, but with a very malty sweetness omnipresent. Spritzy to fizzy carbonation; hints at CO² acidity; light body, bit of gristslickness. Hmmpfff. IMO, there’s something missing in a beer that needs the carbonation in order to achieve some balance. Txs for bringing over, Hans B!

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Malt aroma. Sweet malt and light mineral flavor. Medium bodied. Sweet malt lingers.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Bottle. Golden with a slight white head and moderate carbonation. Solid, all-round pils, tending to the malty, with a moderately bitter finish. Ok.

ogivlado (7120) - 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.

kappldav123 (5829) - GERMANY - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, modest spicy-hoppy, a bit grasy. Finish well balanced, still mild. Surprisingly good. Thanks to my friends Fiene and Marcel for this one!

Bottle at L’Ozio in Amsterdam. Nice golden body with tall head. Hoppy nose. Some bitter in the flavour. Well-balanced with malts. Quite creamy and went down very well. I must say I was very positively surprised with this one.
