1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light yellow with a short lived white head. Very skunky aroma maybe some grassy hops. The flavour is much of the same and thin and watery as well. So basically right in line with the style.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow color and little too fizzy. Has a skunky aroma and was a bit watery. Bought a six pack and might have to use the rest to boil brat. This is my first Italian beer so hopefully I will find one that will not cause me to avoid this country’s beer brewers.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle poured a clear very pale yellow with a small quickly diminishing white head. Aromas of skunk! Palate was thin and watery. Flavors of white bread and the smallest touch of citrus.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty standard lager, it has a similar mouth feel to san pellegrino water, understandable. It tastes very similar to stella artois but it smells and tastes just that much nicer, quite nice.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow colour. White long lasting head. Sweet and grassy aroma. Malty flavour. Some metalic bitterness in the aftertaste. Not one of my favourite beers.

Your typical lager. Hints of fruit. Nice label and color. Thoughts of Heineken came to mind...

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear light gold with lots of bubbles and a tall foamy white head with falling spotty lacing. Sour, chalky malt (hay) and yeast (sweat) aroma with background fruit hop notes. Buttery mild malt sour yeast and lightly acidic hop flavor. Light and thin bodied, fizzy palate that goes dry.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heineken-like aroma. Some corn flavor with hops. Medium palate. Faily drinkable. Not bad, really.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle pours pale yellow with a slight white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet corn and some notes of bread. Flavor is a bit of lemon in light grains and just a bit of that yeast finished with slight hops. Palate is light and carbonated. Not the worst beer in the world but definitely not something I’d seek out in the future.
