2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
660 ml bottle, bought in Italy and brought home at Parga, Greece where it was poured into a lager glass. ABV 4.8%
The same golden yellow colour on the body, with a bit more than two fingers of white, soapy head. Average retention, only traces of lacing.
barley malt on the aroma and red apples. Not so strong of an aroma, it gets more notable after a swirl of the glass but then it quickly fades away again.
Taste is sweet, with malts, thankfully balanced a bit with the apple juice flavour.
Very thin body and low carbonation.
Overall pretty typical pale lager, quite drinkable on a hot day but easily forgetable.

Are there people in the world who look malty sweet beers? I guess so since they are made everywhere. This could be worse, but the malty sweetness is just too much. 33cl bottle from a Billa supermarket.
