1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not dissimilar to the Birra Moretti I had earlier: a sweet pale lager with a bitter aftertaste. However, I think the craftsmanship is a bit below the Moretti. The beer poured a clear gold. The aroma was of sweet malt, less sour than the Moretti. The head was decent sized but quickly faded into a yeasty film. The flavor was sweet and malty as well, but the aftertaste was quite bitter and bordering on metallic/medicinal. Not a great beer.

Bottled (BB 12/2004)
Dark honey yellow, small white head. Aroma is sweetish malts, a bit unclean. Bitterish palate, lacking malt volume and flavor has hints of corn. One-dimensional and boring.

(Bottled) Golden color with small head. Fruity, reasonably malty, sweet aroma with pear and berry notes. Somewhat malty, fruity flavor with low bitterness and no finish. Light to medium-bodied, carbonated palate. Interesting aroma, but dull flavor and quite light and carbonated body.

This is another of the total brain explosions where I have had this so often but never rated it. Here we have what is a typical euro lager with at least a bit of character. The presentation is as generic euro as can be, as is the nose and flavour. This is a good beer when fresh and the need for a cold crisp beer arises. At the moment in wet and cold Sydney this one does not beckon at all.

Pours gold, smells light but nice, has flavor of hops but is mild. Overall not bad at all for a session pale lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow with a medium sized white head
that quickly dissipated. Faint malt aroma.
Thin, sweet lager with a bit of skunkiness. Not sure if this was intended or from the green bottle. Very
little hop presence.

Golden Lager + Import = Boredom. This beer is very run-of-the-mill, average, plain, and boring. There’s nothing about this beer that yu haven’t had if you’ve had Heineken.

Unfortunately, I have nothing clever to say, so I am pretty much going to copy my rating for Moretti...Mr. Peroni, I would like you to meet my friend Mr. Moretti...I think you two have a lot in common...maybe they shoulda calleda thisa beera Heinekena (me speaking with a cheesy Italian accent)

Pretty much reminded me of any other run of the mill European brew. Smooth sweet taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Better than American macros, but stil has a watery feel to it. It was, however, perfect for the context in which it was drank. I had it during a dinner with my girlfriend on a hot humid day at an italian restaurant where we were eating outside. I had a spicy pasta which it helped cool. Overall, I enjoyed the beer as much for the context as for the taste.
