2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I think the title "#1 selling beer in Italy" is a little skewed. This was one of the skunkiest beers I have ever had. Only the Kingfisher was worse.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden colour, good head, typical lager appereance. Almost no aroma, just a little bit malty. Sweet, watery flavour, with very few hops in the finish. Not terrible, but even flavourless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is very skunky, with light floral and hop hints. The appearance is a clear gold, with a thin head that leaves an oily film rather than lace. The flavor is kinda tangy, a bit of a hop bite, and even taste a bit skunky. The beer is smooth and crisp. Overall ok, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An ok beer for its style, but nothing special. It's pretty bland with a little hoppy bitterness. I like Moretti better.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fizzy, yellow, watery, blah blah blah. Just like every other bland macro pils. Just because it is from italy doesn't mean it is cool. Move along.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
An average at best look to this one, though not SUCH a light gold color as to be completely unattractive. Aroma is fair, though a little skunky, in my opinion. Flavor is actually not what I expected at all. This one is lightly bitter and surprisingly smooth. Not bad, but I'm still waiting for an Italian beer to really impress me (though I've only had two).

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 A remarkably tasteless beer. Bland in every respect. Yellow. No head. No aroma. Slightly sweet. Barely detectable hint of hops.

decent lager a little pale in color, but nice head. Taste is unremarkable with strange aftertaste; worth drinking though just to read krisbierjaeger's rating.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 Just another lager. I have had worse, but then I was not expecting much after a few other Italian beers, so I was not as disappointed as some of the other reviewers may have been. Flat taste and a really off finish. Rerated 7 April. No taste. No malt, no bitterness, just the faintest hint of floral hops, and still with a slightly off finish.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Upon first glance it doesn't look like too much, yet it is a good tasting beer. It lacks flavor, but is a well balanced lager.
