0.33l botttle from a supermarket in Monfalcone. This is a crystal clear dark golden one. Not as much as an unfiltered particle or a hint of blurriness. It also has a big bubbly just off-white head that’s lacing down the glass. It does really not smell that much. Light grainy and malty perhaps with a hint of both caramel and thin hops. Not horrible, just not all that much. It has a thin oily texture and it’s average carbonated. Quite boozy at first in the flavor! Then, it calms down after a while and becomes more sweet like. Malty and a hint of caramel also here in the flavor. Not an extreme bitterness, but it’s there in the boozy finish and aftertaste. Did not expect much of this, but I have to say I got more than I was expecting. 09.06.2012

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brewed in UK, 8%. BB Aug 16. Poured a crystal clear mid-amber colour with a one-finger off-white dense foam head that retained OK and laced poorly. Carbonation low and coarse. Aroma very subtly of grainy malt. Taste is very strong grainy malt then becomes quite sweet/sugary with some alcohol. Light body. Clean, smooth and sweet with a slight but off-putting alcohol ’burn’ on the finish. Suggests serving ’ice cold’ - to mask the alcohol level.

440ml can from Scotmid. 8%. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of sugar, malt, cooked vegetables, something metallic. Taste is sweet. Nothing much else going on. Builds to a pretty rank climax though. Something suggesting poor drainage or immense gastric distress. And after all that, still not as bad as I was expecting!

Bottle @ some light deli along the river in Pisa, Italy. Clear amber, white head that drops to a full cover, a few lace dots. Taste is light brisk malt and carbonation that smoothly adds European hops, then moves to a finish where an otherwise light brew suddenly ads noticeable alcohol. Reasonable, but one is enough.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark golden, dense white head, decently persistent. Aroma has light notes of cereal and lemon soaked in heavy alcohol. Taste has a vague sweetness, a lot of alcohol and a quite harsh chemical finish/aftertaste. Body is heavy with light carbonation, mouthfeel is dense and chewy. It’s bad, but still tolerable
