Golden Lager + Import = Boredom. This beer is very run-of-the-mill, average, plain, and boring. Thereís nothing about this beer that yu havenít had if youíve 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.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2004 The easiest description is bitter-sweet although the sweet taste hits you first and then the slightly bitter after taste. Iím not a fan of this sweet taste, but I could still drink it and enjoy it. And itís a lot more pricey than most beers.
Ok upon further inspection this beer certaintly shouldn't be drank ice-cold. Take it out of the fridge and let it cool down a bit, and perhaps you will find a tasty treat.

Hmm...I remember thinking, "Ick!" when I tried this beer on the streets of Rome. Even very chilled I didnít like it. Thin and watery with a soured hoppy flavor, it just didnít agree with me like St. Josefís or Strongbow. I actually remember my friends pouring some of this stuff out. Itís OK...but then, itís not that good. Reminds me of a lesser Spaten Premium Lager. It was cool to get it from a street vendor though. Extra points there.

A decent tasting beer. Medium bodied with not too much after taste. A little sweet and satisfying. Had this on my 21st birthday.

bottle. Clear yellow color with smallish head. Light malty aroma with a bit of skunkiness. Nice with Italian food if youíre having only one.

Lightish lager with a yeast aroma and a sweetish dry flavour. Overall an average beer but good for an Italian effort.
Earlier Rating: 9/1/2003 Total Score: 2.8
Golden lager with a very bland airy aroma, and a malty/slightly dry flavour. A refreshing summer brew.

This is a gross beer. Highly malted and sweet... you donít make a beer "red" by adding sugar and malt, right? Tell these guys. Gross.

I used to work in an Italian Resturant and people would order this all the time. NO! Get a red wine! Well anyway this a golden color with little head. It has a crisp grassy flavor to it. This junk has an insane price tag. Its your standard lager really.
