On a hot day on St Martin’s Lane in London this was a light relief. It is quite crisp and goes down well but in the end just a flat, mass-producced beer.

11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, pale yellow with a small white head and minimal spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is faint of cereal and hops. Sweet, malt and grain with a slight bitter hoppiness towards the end. To be honest is better than you average lager; very drinkable, crisp and refreshing.

Flaska på Lydmar Hotell.
Doftar bröd och massa metall.
Smakar malt och vatten.
Törstsläckande i solen på sin höjd...

Bottle at home. Picked up in Elm Springs. Meh. Pours a very clear yellow. Not much flavor. Not much of anything. Drinkable after mowing the lawn. On a hot day.

Bottle at a FP&A event in Orlando. Not a beer I frequently turn to and after tasting it again I’m reminded why that is a good strategy. Aroma is mostly cereal and very mild hops. Appearance is quite pale yellow like the color you’d likely see after consuming this and making a trip to the bathroom. It’s taste leans away from any sort of complexity falling back on the familiar light, bitter American style of flavor. A very thin mouthfeel. It lingers in the mouth like you made a bad beer choice. I’ve been harsh but it’s all relative. Compared to the likes of a Miller Lite/Bud Light/Coors Light, it’s quite decent. Probably a better option if your other options are Heineken or Stella (although the latter would be a close call).

Bottle at Shaun’s place. Typical lager looks. Better than The average pale lager to be fair. Some citrus and not over carbonated. Bitter and OK.

Medium bitter lager of decent quality. Crisp and refreshing with the bitterness taking over the aftertaste

330ml bottle, 5.1%. Cool refreshing malty lager. Had it in warm sunshine in Ravello on Amalfi coast, which explains why it was refreshing! However, in reality it is a fairly low standard lager

Oh yeah, this thing, how could I ever forget, well here goes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a somewhat hazy but mostly transparent yellow color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. There was some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had some grainy cereal to corn notes.
The taste was mainly sweet cereal to corn flavors.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it.
Overall, well, it’s a premium lager originally made by Italians. They should probably stick to making wine. I most likely wouldn’t have this again.
