2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Clear golden , spritzy feel. Run of the mill pale lager for me. Enjoyed it though, no skunkiness for me
, tried again april2015. Enjoyed a few bottles to start the night. Still very pale and spritzy looking. Easily sunk and hides strength.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very clear pale yellow color. Slightly skunky aroma. Taste is very similar to Heineken Light. Nothing stands out in the taste to much.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Standard lager. Golden colour, small head. Some weird apple-like acidic flavour, nice bitterness in finish though. Nothing extraordinary; slightly better than I expected from an Italian brewer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle. Mild, sweet corn aroma. Clear golden color with lots of visible carbonation. The flavor also showed lots of evidence of the corn listed in the ingredients. The aftertaste was bitter, and the mouthfeel was sticky. Ok, but not great.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle poured into a free Peroni (somewhat pilsner shaped) glass which came with the six-pack. Foamy, almost soapy looking thick,white head due mostly to the narrow glassware. Head quickly disolved. As light in color as possible while still being able to be called yellow. Metalic, grassy odor that reminded me of when I used to collect bottle caps when I was in grade school. That whole metal cap, stale beer combination. The taste was almost non-existant at first but it soon matched the aroma as it warmed. Very light mouthfeel, almost thinner than water. I wish I picked a better beer for my first rating, but hey, I did get a free glass out of the deal.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2009 Bottle. Pours really light and pissy with no head after a few seconds. Aroma = skunk and rotting corn. It has a bit of sweetness that isn’t nauseating and papery hops. Plenty of corn and sour, skunky notes make up the rest of the flavor, the finish hints at fuel. Why the hell pay the extra dollar for the same old rehashed crap with which our American market is flooded?

A big no thanks to the bastard who left this in my fridge. I thought I could plug my nose and chug this one down. WRONG!!! I poured a little out of the bottle which instantly battered my nostrils with foul skunk. This is one ugly beer. It is so crystal clear with a puffy white head. It looks like soap water. Oh God, the aroma. The stench is so painfully offensive, so excruciating. It smells exactly like skunk spray, pencil erasers, overheating brakes, and condoms, basically items that I would never consider eating or drinking. This is just so repulsing. The flavor is somewhat forgiving with a sweet vegetal note amid the rubber and skunk onslaught. This is utter trash.
