Imported Bottle. So what makes it an Italian beer? This and Moretti suggest a bit more hop bitterness in a light lager. I had this cold (that is, I was cold) at an outdoor mini-Italian fest in Chicago in October. Nice golden color under a thin but persistent head. I can taste the malt, balanced by an agreeable hop bitterness and yeast bite. Noticeably more body to it than you'd expect, and finishes well. Matches well with a hot Buona Beef sammich.

Golden color with a moderate head and fair lacing. Malty aroma with a spicy hoppiness. Light to medium body, with a malty and slightly tangy flavor and a mild hoppy background. Dryish finish. Decent.

Light watery color, aroma was lighlty hoppy and floral, far beter than i was expecting. Taste was lightly bitter, with some citrusy, slighltly spicy hints. Finish was watery and lightly bitter. Beter than I was expecting, but I was expecing it to be terrible.

Except for some mild grain flavors and some citric fruitiness, this is a pretty plain and watery lager. Has a decent crispness and is easy to drink. Has the standard green bottle skunk, too.

A drinkable yellow lager. Nothing special, but there are no major faults either. Could use a little more flavor, though.

Pours a yellow golden color with a fizzy white head. A light aroma with malt and hops. Somewhat dry but a very smooth taste. Not a bad beer.

Pours with a pale golden body topped by a medium thick white with good lace. Slightly sweet malty aroma with a good hoppy balance. A slight skunky aroma underlies the prominent aromas. Slightly sweet flavor with a good balance, leaning towards malty. Light bodied and smooth yet slighlty dry.

Drinkable? Yes. Exceptional? Not really. I had a few of these at lunch today and wasn't blown away. A very light and dry style that reminded me of a typical European light lager. When I think of Italy, beer never comes to mind but, not a bad effort from our friends in Italy.
