Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is bland malts with grains. Flavor sickly sweet with an almost puckering. This is not good. Avoid the pretty foil on the bottle and pass this one by.

Pale gold with a white head. Cereal aroma. A little honey and malt sweetness, some citric notes, and a trace of bitterness

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2006
33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a nice white head. Very strong aroma of maltness. Very average flavour of a lager, malty and hoppy in a clean way, ends up quite bitter and dry.

Botlle. Hmm. What to say, what to say? This is easy forgettable. Boring, mainstream and sterile.

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Lightly hazed light golden liquid. Wispy, big bubbled white head. Fairly heavy caramel aromas, along with just a touch of hay. Light malt, caramel and a touch of licorice in the flavors. Some odd herbal flavors, somewhat like a thin liqueur. Perhaps this would be ok with a fresh pasta, but really not much more than a thicker lager. Actually this heavy malt flavors draw me to this one a bit closer, but not enough to really embrace.

harrisoni (17692) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
33cl bottle at La Scala restaurant, Dover. I was extremely surprised to find 2 scoops in this restaurant, this beer and Dreher. I was here on a works do. Gold, thin white head. Pale malt, sickly lager hop aroma. Some lemon. Slightly creamy in mouth. Finish has some nice hop, touch of bitterness. Slightly nasty.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Light grainy aroma that is almost exclusively cereal and grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a medium head. The flavor is light but quite agreeable. It has the malty cereal element from the aroma along with the mild grassy hops. The palate is average but the finish is a little sour and citrus like. As pale lagers go, this one is good.

Nose is a little flowery. The colour is pale gold with above average white head (and with above average lacings). It is very easy to drink since the tasted is restrained to some hoppyness in the finish. Otherwise: crisp, fresh and refreshing - a real thirst quencher. I must admit, that I like this beer. However: The Danish importer has a way with words. He is telling everybody who cares to listen that this beer won the beer-world championship three years in a row. I think he is trying to say, that the Menabrea beer was awarded a gold medal by the Chicago Bevarage Testing Institute three years in a row, which isnt the same as winning since lots of different beers are awarded gold medals. And it becomes even more grotesque since the best beers are awarded a platinum-medal (which apparently is better then gold).

Bottle. Floral hoppy nose. Pale gold with a white head. Flavour is pretty much a bog standard Italian lager with a slightly sour finish.
