Great tasting Euro pils. Medium bodied, tons of biscuity malt flavor, followed by a refreshing hop bitterness. Really hard to beat IMO. Kicks all others in the heinie. The most desired beer in Italy.

Appearance – Very, very pale in colour, I struggled to get this beer to support any kind of head. The lack of head also resulted in zero lacing.

Smell – It didn’t even smell like a beer more like the barley water mix that beer might one day come from.

Taste – The taste matched this initial sight and smell observation as all I could taste was barley and water. Maybe the corn has an effect on the taste of the brew, who knows all I can say is this is rather bland for my liking. There is just mild and I do mean mild malt flavour so the whole thing is very close to the taste of water. Even my wife could tell from the colour that this one was going to be a disappointment and she does not drink.

Mouthfeel – Watery and very thin.

Overall – There is nothing really wrong with this but nothing really good about it either. It is just dull, having said that if you drink it with an Italian meal it does have a better flavour following the meal but not nearly enough to make it interesting. So my advice is either drink this as your accompaniment to an Italian meal or treat it like a Miller, chill it to near zero and drink it quick so you don’t notice the lack of flavour. I also tend to feel that this last point makes this a worrying beer! What I mean by that is best explained by this… imagine if a bunch of rowdy teens get their hands on this. At 4.6% they would be pissed pretty quickly and would just keep on drinking as there is so little flavour it would taste like water even to them.
