Bottle: Was expecting skunk-juice with the green bottle. Much to my surprise it was fresh tasting. Clean malty with a crisp dry finish. It didn't suck.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Nov, 2003 Bottle. Pastuerised. The pastuerising process doesn’t appear to have such a dramatic effect on lager as it does on ale. And the quick squirt of fizz feels appropriate. These bog standard global lagers are not so much about flavour as about being thirst quenching. This one does the job quite nicely - it doesn’t taste bad, and it washes down a quick lunch. Great beer it aint. [2.0]
Jan, 2007 Bottle from BeersOfEurope. A clean, sweet lager with a mild salty bitterness in the finish. OK. [2.2]

Light toast malt aroma with a touch of hops in the end. Light golden color with a little lacing and small head. Flavor is lightly sweet with a nice toasty but semi-bitter finish. This isn't a bad lager, it's just a bland internationally brewed one.

Yeah, not quite right. Tastes very grassy and grainy. Very rich, sweet and peculiar. Not a great tasting beer for mine.

Light gold color with little head. Faint skunkiness. Definitely not one I would search out!

Light gold lager/pilsner color. Nasty green bottle leads once again to a skunked lager. Funny that this keeps on happening. I like how it says it has a well-balanced hop taste. Not really. A little tangy and better than Birra Moretti. Peroni would be so much better if it lost the bottle. The flavor is there but the skunked smell throws it out of balance.

Italian lager, doesnt really roll of the tongue does it? I gave it a shot though. Pulled out the frozen mug and went to work. I was surprised by its easy taste. It was a bit skunky, but I didn't mind, I was just happy that I actually enjoyed drinking it. Italy you haven't disappointed us all.
