JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2010
Aroma as expected - lager. Bottle and drink looks excellent for summer and cafe. Taste is fresh. A little hop, and a little sweetness. Ends sweet. Palate is fresh and watery. Great for summer and cafe. Purchased at IDAs harbour cafe.

JoeinDahlem (1475) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2010
From a bottle found at the Costa Rican version of Wal-Mart. OK. Seriously green skunked nose, light-struck from an insufficiently dark green bottle. And a sneaking suspicion that that skunkiness will supply most of this beer’s character. Smells like a Corona. Bit of sweet corn and some cereals underneath. Mild bitterness though, and an actual malty center. Maybe a touch flat but that’s OK. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Better than expected and possibly halfway decet when fresh.

fonefan (46611) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle 660ml. @ home.
Clear medium yellow color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, hay, straw, toasted, sweet malt, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and light light bitter with a average duration, sweet malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20100414]

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2010
Draught at 28 Erbe, Genova. Golden with thin white head. Faint nose of malt and citrus. Flavour is malt and citrusy hops. Rather one dimensional all round but it does taste pretty clean. Refreshing if nothing else.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Bottle from Italy. Pours a very bright pale yellow color, with a frothy white head, that actually partially sticks around. Aroma is of grains, slight amount of grassy and citrussy hops, but overall fairly weak. Flavour is grainy with some grassy and citrussy notes. I get a slightly foral notes aswell, but it is very faint. Body is light and watery. Overall a refreshing beer, that would be good for quenching your thirst on a hot summers day. Not anything special, but average.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle: Aroma of pale malts and a hint of hops. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Clear. Very sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of pale malt, grains, and hops. Light body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Pale malt and hop finish. A great gift with a great meal.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 26, 2009
21/12 A 0.66l bottle from a random shop in San Remo, I think. Anyway, it poured golden body with small head. Stinky malty aroma, grainy with some honey. Malty pale lager in flavor as well, eggs, honey/cornflakes and similar typical things. Medium body. Somewhat of herbal hop bitterness is present in the finish which was more sweet anyway, but it raises my opinion on this brew slightly. Not really good anyway.

Marko (5287) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2009
0.66l bottle from somewhere in Italy, shared with heavy
Poured a pale golden body with a small white head that went away relatively fast. Very light grainy-honeyish malty nose. Ok nuff. The taste was at the beginning basically crap. grainy and honeyish, empty, notes of soggy cornflakes and cardboard. N/A with alcohol, whoop-dee-doo. The hop present around the back did show some interesting piney qualities and some light yoghurty qualities started to emerge and save the overall impression. Not the best beer you can get, but you can do far worse in Italy.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - NOV 26, 2009
bottle - pours golden-green with a creamy, frothy white head. The aroma is malty with a bit of corn. The flavor is mostly grassy and hoppy. It’s kind of boring like most pale lagers (but that’s just me), but this is by far one of the best macro beers Italy has to offer in this category.
