Comparable to Birra Moretti but has less malt and is a little more watery. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is non-existent - a slight hint of malt. Taste is moderatly sweet with some caramel. Mouthfeel is weak and watery. Not good but not necessarily offensive either.

As my friend beaconstreet put it in his rating, I did at first compare this to an Italian version of Rolling Rock. Which it sort of is, though I might lean more towards Miller High Life now. I probably wouldn’t buy this.

Tastes a bit common, but has a slight edge of distinction. Kind of bitter at some sips? Oh yeah, definitely a sipping beer. Jine says this is like an Italian Rolling Rock, I think it might be like an Italian Heineken, but a stroke better. It’s okay, and looks classy. Bubbly. Appropriate for a banquet probably.

This is much like most of the macro pale lagers on the market... except that one has to pay more because it’s imported from Italy. Not a bad drink, but it offers little special for its cost. Mild malt aroma, mild body, mild taste.

Don’t remember when I drank this beer, but I found the lable in my wallet with the ratings and info on the back. Not a very good beer, but drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 This was very pleasant beer with an Italian disk of sausage. Not outstanding but very drinkable. The head was small but stayed with beverage. The color was gold and the aroma had hints of hops. Christmas beer 2013. Medium body with soft carbonation. Grassy taste on the finish

Had this on 9-5-04 at Tuscany Ristorante in Newport News, VA. Bottled. Pours an efferevescent straw colored blond. Medium white head. It settles quickly with only some foam around the edges of the glass. Nose is mildly malted and slightly grassy. Pleasant enough and not skunky - obviously a fresh bottle. Taste is about where I expected it to be. Minimal malt with some cereal and grassy notes. Hint of cardboard. Palate is light but moderately carbonated. Finish is more cereal and some sweetness. Not too bad! Went well with dinner also!

Not too bad a stab at the easy drinking lager category. A little weak, but very drinkable.

Oh my god... my friend slides my the bottle in disgust. "How bad could it be?" I wonder. As I tip the bottle towards my nose and mouth, a skunk lifts its tail and blasts me in the face with its stank. I’m sure it was a light struck bottle, but I couldn’t even pick up on anything else underneath it. No points.
