Another beer I had initaly. Has a very nice bottle shape and appearance. It has corn in it, so it’s probably the first thing you are going to smell in this beer. But they haven’t overdone it, like in other beers that contain corn. It has a golden-straw color, with normal white head. You get a malty-corny taste. And a similar finish, maybe a bit watery too. It’s a simple lager beer. Not bad, but nothing really special too. Worth a try.

I was not a huge fan of this one, tried it out while on vacation. Really just a worse tasting Heineken. The color was an almost clear yellow and there was little body to speak of. Very little carbonation, kind of a watery mouthfeel. The taste was almost sour with a bitter aftertaste. Not great.

The bottle reads "100% puro malto italiano"(100% pure italian malt.) Ingredienti: acqua, malto d'orzo, luppolo(water, barley malt, hops.)
There is NO corn in this beer.
33 cl green bottle poured into a footed pilsner glass.
The carbonation looks extreme. Lots of bubbles rushing to the surface and retaining a fairly big head. Yellowish golden color, of course extremely clear.
A simple, grainy aroma, a touch of sweetness. Maybe a slight hop note in the background, spicy, but it's certainly underneath the graininess. Not all that inviting, but certainly not offensive.
Not much going on on the palate, but it's slightly sweet and, as in the nose, grainy. A little hop spiciness finds it's way through. Simple, but really not bad. Much better than expected, though there is a discomforting aftertaste that picks up as you go along.
Goes down easy. Not as carbonated as it looks, but that aftertaste that is so common to mass produced pale lagers knocks down my enjoyment of this. That said, I'll probably pick this up for some bbqing or parkside, riverside drinking this summer, in large part due to the favorable price(5 euros a 6-pack, or about 1.15 if you're buying it by the 66cl bottle.)
Very fresh bottle, which probably helped reduce the skunkiness from the green glass.
So much better than the standard Birra Moretti, which is, frankly, a disaster.

33cl bottle into a snifter.

Yellow gold with an inch of dense white froth. Solid retention and scattered lacing. Cereal malt with a touch of biscuit in the aroma. No hop character to speak of. Touch of corn. Lightly sweet grainy and biscuity malt flavor with a low bitterness and a dash of corn. Perhaps a little orchard fruit. Clean, abrupt, dry finish. Lower medium body with high carbonation. Not a bad beer. I could see this being good in certain situations.

Yellow color, quite intense, some bronze reflexes. Strong carbonation. White, average foam.
Malty smell, cereal, a bit of hop. Not bad, for an industrial lager.
Malty taste too, quite full, some perceptible hop.
Rounc, bodied, without defects. But also without any real interesting point. Drinkable.
Malty aftertaste, with cereals, and some hop.
Honest.
