1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
16.9, pours a golden body with a white fleeting head. Grainy, corny, vegetative mess, a bit like solvent and grain. Some bread y grain tones and a dry cardboard apple finish, thats very abrupt and like straw. Not so good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beer Geek. Pours light gold with a small amount of white head. Aroma is lightly bready. Medium body with average carbonation. Flavor is light malt, and mild noble hop - a bit spicey. There’s a lot of flavor, but it’s rather bland flavor. Still,it’s a damn good beer, considering it’s a pale lager. It ranks in with American craft pale lagers.

Thin golden colour with a thin lace. Thin body. Lacks body. A little dull and uninteresting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark golden yellow with a nice white head and lot of carbonation. Nice malt and corn on the nose with the malty sweetness lingering in the background. Nicely balanced with the malts providing a nice roundness mid palate and light hops giving a little bitterness on the finish. A decent Italian beer.

Bottle at tasting at work. Alround rating: Pale malts, sweet honey character, balanced and drinkable but boring really.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, best by 4-2010. Ridiculously disgusting solvent, sour corn and raunchy bubble gum. Body is extremely weak, slightly fizzy, no texture, no heft, nothing. Flavor is more of this putrid bubble gum, fennel and makeup-chemicals... ugh.
