2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light golden beer with virtually no head. Very faint aroma, a tiny bit of skunk. Tastes like a watered down Heineken. Grassy, dry finish. Nothing intersting or offensive, just an easy to drink blah beer. Good with my scallop scampi. When a beer says it is a country's number one beer, you can bet it will be pretty boring and unoffensive to the masses.

Pours golden, but with no head to speak of. Very smooth and refreshing. Goes well with an italian dish with red sauce and meat like suasage, pepperoni or meatballs. You don't need a lot of flavor in this beer if you drink it in the appropriate setting. Best served cold, but not ice cold.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 A basic pale lager with nothing to distinguish it from the multitude of international pale lagers. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer pours a light golden color with a large white head. There is a slight sour, grassy aroma. The texture is smooth but the brew is relatively flavorless. Very little body. No skunkyness, or any offending flavors, but not really any good flavors either. There really is not much to this beer.

Bottled at a Don Giovanni's pizza place in Philly. Smelled and tasted like a Heiniken (sp). Skunky. The death date was 11/04 so this was far from being bad. This wasn't good.

The aroma and flavour for this beer are definitely macro-beerish. You can tell it's mass produced. The palate is lacking and somewhat stale. Its aroma smells a little like copper to me. My overall impression was not so very favourable.

Macro!! Of course. You pretty much know that the hops and malt will be weak. Slightly skunly and pours with a small white head.

Not a big fan of this one. Needs a bit more carbonation and a bit more taste. I think it travels poorly because more often than not I get it when it smells terrible.

Smelled awful. Pours a blond color with a decent head. Can taste the hops. Better than Yuengling.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mid-yellow clear colour with quickly dissipating head. Very faint hops and carbonic acid mineral water aromas. Very light to weak palate and refreshing dry finish. Not bad for an Italian macrobrew.

Italy in the beer business? Oddly enough, but true. Typical lager, not much to say.
