2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The bottle poured a sparkling clear golden yellow beverage with an average sized fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and left some lacing on the glass. The aroma had a moderate grain presence with some light grassy hop notes in the background. The body was light to medium with a slightly dry, watery texture and lively carbonation. The flavor started off lightly sweet and matured to a light bitterness during the average length finish.

This beer was very "skunky" throughout the entire drinking process. The head was poor which made the bottled beer appear flat when poured. Very bitter taste and aftertaste the same. I was disapointed paying so much for this, mainly because it tasted just like a Genny Cream Ale. Don’t get me wrong, Genny Cream is an excellent product in my book, but it doesn’t smell bad and appears much fresher. Maybe this bottle was old. Maybe I was expecting a pasta flavour!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle bought at the LCBO singles bin, on wonderland and southdale, London, Ontario. Pale straw body, accompanied by a short lived, thin bubbly head. Massive skunk is overwhelming in the nose, and takes away from what little hop presence there is. Corn and grain are also on the menu, but the nose doesn’t want to order. Stunningly watery and flat properties do not add any pleasure to the experience. Anything redeeming in the flavour, is skewed by bitter adjunct and grain flavours. I imagine that if I boiled corn in a pot, and drank the water forthwith, this is what it would taste like. It’s that "corny". Unbalanced as all hell. Too much corn, not enough of anything else. I think this beer represents a new style that hasn’t broken through yet. That style is the unknown "corn lager." Something that, fortunately, hasn’t caught on in too many places.

light yellow with a very little head. With a pizza thought it would match well. Not much more than water.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Kind of skunky flavor. Pale color, weak flavor. Bubble type of head. Tastes like a typical macro beer but is acceptable.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Overwhelming aroma of skunk! Pours a fizzy golden color with absolutely the fast fading head I have ever seen. There is some dead vegetables, some corn and other varieties in the aroma of things that do not belong in beer. Italians should stick with making great wine and leave the beer to Germany.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. White small but lasting head. Yellow clear body. Malt aroma. Flavor: Ha ha its a joke, I guess its corn probably with a few leaves of hops per 100 liter. Maybe I should have tried it with a few ice cubes and some vodka.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very pale, clear, straw color with a medium head that subsides to almost nothing rather quickly with no lacing. A lot of tiny bubbles coming up from the bottom. I could smell this as soon as I opened the bottle. Smell is a mix of skunk, corn, and grassy hops. Tastes more balanced and malty than it smells, but hops and corn are the predominate taste with a hint of skunk. My 1st Italian beer. Not bad, but I am not wondering why Italy is not a beer capital of the world.
