330ml bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan. This beer is brewed 3 miles from my home but this is the first time I have seen it. Amber yellow colour, big foamy head. Corn resin malt aroma. Biscuit corn & vanilla flavour. Quite smooth for a lager. Sweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Picked this up just because it had reduced price. Didnít expect much of it but itís a decent lager. No off-taste or aroma in any way. Itís a clean, easy drinking beer, a good example of well done lager.

davidm (2079) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Can 500ml from Parkhill cellars. A bit bland, but I had worse. Aromas of citrus, hay, and a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a thin head.

Refreshing typical pale lager with balanced bitterness. Steep discouraging price.

Dorqui (2232) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 1, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Golden yellow color, medium ehad resistance, nearly no bubbly presence. Malty and dried grassy and alcoholic nose. Poor taste, medium prickly body, a little watery with notes of dampen grains and hay. Excessive bitter perception for this style.

33cl bottle, 5%. Yellow color, standard white head. Lagery nose. Aroma is grainy, strawy hops. Taste is flat, metallic bitterness in the finish, body is light, carbonated. Simple lager, somewhat dull. Average green bottle stuff.
