Not very good at all, but it is strong and grainy... But what do you expect?

labeerinthum (568) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 8, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso finisce sull’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma resiste poco, con bollicine medie e carbonazione media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è media e persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è medio. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di pane e cereali. Alcol presente non invadente.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2016
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.

allmyvinyl (9562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2016
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.

ozzatoadisback (91) - ITALY - APR 13, 2016
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
