3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad. It has the good looks but, just like most Italian beers, it is afraid to be too bitter. The hops are too much balanced by malt. The result is a kind of grass-in-honey aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle @ Pizza e Birra, Surry Hills, Sydney (recommended). A solid pilsner with a grainy sweet malt backbone and reasonable dry hop bitterness. Rather thin bodied and watery. Pours clear dark golden with average white head.

330ml bottle, New Zealand. Cloudy blonde, nice white head. Very sweet nose, honey and vinegar. Cardboard, butter and vinegar flavors. Must be off.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
(33 cl bottle from Coca @ Torvehallerne; BBD: October 20th 2012; L11304-1443) The cap had not been properly sealed on this bottle. It has sort of carved inwards with one of the nooks being squeezed between the glass rim and the superstructure of the cap. Beer pours a hazy and completely flat amber with neither head nor lace. Aroma is oxydised cardboard and malt. Absolutely no flavour except a little sweetness. Watery palate, thin body and a slightly sweet finish. One of the worst beers I ever tasted. Had to pour after two sips. Guess it would have been different if the cap had been intact but it wasn’t and they let it out of the brewery.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Medium white airy head, quickly disappearing. Clear yellow colour. Generic industrial lager. Medium to fizzy carbonation, belchy. Taste is medium bitter, initially combined with some sweetness. Finish is mild bitter. Overall quite watery taste, with soapy notes. You can buy better in most supermarkets.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle from el corte ingles, lisbon, portugal. Golden color. Thin to medium head. Medium carbonation. Low bitterness. Cereal and corn aroma. It’s not a good pilsener, it’s more like a good pale lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Has a clear golden straw-yellow colour with a big frothy off-white head. Aromas of pale male, hay, sweet corn, citrus and some fruits and spices. I also find much of the same stuff in the flavour with more pale malt and sweet corn. Light and slick mouthfeel. Bitterness = light+. Just another unexciting light lager with a fair hop touch.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330 ml botte pours cloudy with white head that fades to patches. Lots of bubbles rising. Aroma is light and metallic. Taste is heavy on the tongue. Sweet, malty, banana, great balance. Extremely drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Buona pils davvero, sono rimasto impressionato, visto i voti poco lusinghieri! Poco aroma bella da vedere, bionda dorata, buona, cereali e un tocco di luppolo poca permaneza di sapore dopo la bevuta!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Toscanaccio, Winchester. A big improvement over the Premium Lager, looking and smelling better as soon as the bottle is opened. Straw with a billowing white head; the aroma is of sweet honey and cereal - Sugar Puffs is a good reference point; full and zesty in the mouth with a sharply citrus bitterness over a grassy body; and a zingy finish. Definitely stands out from the average macro-brewed Pilsner.
