2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle and draught). Very light golden colour, moderate head. "Neutral" pilsener flavour (yes, another one!) Drinkable, but Nastro Azzurro is better.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very blond beer with a small quickly disappearing head. Hop aroma. Light bitter hoppy taste. Nothing special. Ordinary cheap lager.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
The most popular beer in Italy? Well obviously the Italian masses like swill too. The rating will read like Bud, Miller, etc. Yellow, fizzy, puny aroma, bland flavor. To be avoided.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is a little skunky with some faint hints of malts and hops. It has a light body with high carbonation. The flavor is nasty cardboard malts with stale hops. The finish is thankfully short with some hop bitterness. It tastes like cardboard and hay, which is not a good combination.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is just Italian Budweiser. Minimal palate, very bitter 'Anheiser-Busch' taste. No body whatsoever. It made me a sad panda.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much to distinguish this beer from so many other "premium" lagers. Hint of maltiness in aroma and flavor and some actual hops are recognizable as well but not enough to really tantalize the taste buds. Reminds of Heineken with less funkiness.

Pretty good beer. Great with Italian food. Rich full-bodied taste. Would definitely recommend to everyone

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this one at an Italian restaurant - should have gone with the Chianti, but I wanted another rating... Pours, smells and tastes rather like so many other dark yellow, fizzy lagers. Worked to wash down the (delicious!) gnocchi, but that's about it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is a clear medium yellow with a fluffy white head that was about a finger high, has some divets and left small clingy lacing. Smell is faint of sweet malt and grain and a bit of floral hop. Taste is clean and lightly sweet of malt with a bit of drying crisp hop thats very subtle. Nice over all light and sweet body with a easy smoothness thats pretty drinkable with a slightly crispy dryness in the finish which can help settle any garlicy pizza.
