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.

Compared with stablemate Nastro Azzuro, this is crisper, slightly hoppier, but loses refinement (mostly in the form of grassiness. in the process.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Well, there's not much good I can say about this beer, except for maybe the 2/3 liter bottles but it ends there. Flavorless, putrid aroma and generally bland.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Smooth and light, this is a good beer. While a little bland it is of high quality. It is not full bodied enough but that is my only real gripe.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yuck. Very thin and watery. Very pale and light. Little on the skunky side. Not very good. Italians should stick to making wine and vermouth.
