Scipio's rating

Scipio (852) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a clear, thin golden with a minimal white head. I was impressed with the aroma. It is very citrus and fruity. Lots of peaches especially, with orange, pineapple, and floral hops. The taste really sours unfortunately. It retains a bit of the strong peach impressions, but is actually more bland. Maybe somewhat grainy, but the best description is that it is almost lacking any taste. Thin, watery body. This really began with much promise from my first impression, but turned out to be a disappointment.

mcberko (14998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry cereal malts, some straw and cardboard. Flavour is rather dull - apparently this is five months old, ugh. Dry cereal malts and toasted cracker. Bland and uninteresting - clear suboptimal but couldnt have been too great fresh.

mircoas (298) - ITALY - NOV 14, 2016
33cl @ bottle. Birra abbastanza scarsa, va bene per un pasto se non si ha di meglio in casa. Aroma innocuo, amaro dominante e comunque discretamente beverina. Niente di che.

PanMarek (301) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Sampled at Epcot Food & Wine Festival 2016. Clear golden yellow pour with light, white quick fizz. Caramel and fruity malt in the nose with a little floral hops. Mild flavor with the caramel and cereal malt. The grassy hops balance the malt well. Slightly watery texture and a bitter finish.

SkillsFactory (592) - ITALY - NOV 5, 2016
Bionda limpida, schiuma bianca fine ma non molto persistente. Aroma di passion fruit, leggero limone crosta di pane bianco molto leggera. Al palato leggero passion fruit che lascia il passo ad un finale con crosta di pane ed una punta acida un po troppo marcata seguiti da un leggero erbaceo. Corpo medio leggero, mediamente carbonata, texture acquosa.

Cereal, golden with a good white head, light body, medium carbonation, quite boring with notes of fruits...not an impressive "wave".
