COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra leggera bionda di bassa fermentazione prodotta seguendo l’antica ricetta a base di riso, dal colore dorato, di gusto leggermente amaro a cui si associa un aroma di malto. Prodotta con malto d’orzo, riso, luppoli e la leggerissima acqua delle prealpi biellesi. Ben si sposa con primi piatti della tradizione italiana, pesce e carni bianche.

Si consiglia di consumare a temperatura intorno a 6/ 8 °C.

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Clear dark straw, almost golden color, with a strong amount of activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head that last for 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs. Aromas of sweet grains and corn a little. Flavors of skunk, corn, sweet malts, lemon, and herbal spices. Faint smoky roasted feel with some grass. A bit sugary but more of a sharp bitter lemony feel. Slick medium body with super prickly carbonation. Light finish that ends with some grassy noble spices and a faint zest. Overall pretty average in quality: faint flavors, good freshness, a little adjunct and syrupy, strange unique decent hoppy feel, too much carbonation, feels a little like wet cardboard.

ogivlado (7215) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Pale yellow coloured, medium sized airy white head, weak grainy nose. Slightly malty, bready, notes of grain and corn and that’s it. Short and a bit acidic finish. Typical Italian macro lager.
Am I crazy or what...I really paid for this water almost 6€. Oh, yes I think I’m crazy...

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Hazy blonde, touch yeasty, light and refreshing as a relatively mellow unfiltered pale lager. Not bad for what it is.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2013
660ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Papery, sour, raw yeast in aroma. A4 paper lots of it in this beer. It really tastes like pizza box.

csaso (2096) - Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle - big foamy head, pale straw color, pretty basic Euro lager aroma and flavor, sweet light malt, not much hops, nothing special by any means - the bottle makes it look fancy, but the beer inside it does not match the bottle
