look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a straw yellow color that is clean and transparent. Half a finger of head on the pour settled in to a thin layer across the top that was present while drinking. Active carbonation is very bright, slightly above average for the style.

Smell: Straw and some medium bodied hops on the front. Some more grassy hop notes on the body with significant biscuit and creamy buttery malts. Touches of corn and nuts are picked up underneath.

Taste: The initial hit is of corn and grains which linger throughout. Biscuit, creamy dough and butter, and light hops open up on the body. Some pleasant hop tones linger on the palate after drinking.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean carbonation is very approachable. Some lingering corn and funk is detected but it is nothing over the top.

Overall: Nothing mind blowing but certainly would not turn one of these down at an Italian restaurant or similar setting with limit options. You can certainly do much worse.

The bottle backlog continues to fall in the wake of my decision to eradicate bottles from at least my kitchen and perhaps from my inventory. I am awash in the daggum things and they are standing between me and The CANQuest (TM) and I will not abide it any longer. I open this one in honor of Sheriff Walt Longmire's deputy, the Philadelphia transplant, Vic Moretti.

From the bottle: "The Beer in Italy"; "Qualita e Tradizione".

Wow, a whole 330-ml.! I'll be done before I really get started. I got started with my usual heavy-handed pour, resulting in a pseudo-cascade, and producing just under three fingers of dense, rocky, bone-white head with good retention. Color was a pale lemon-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. For the second time today, I feel like I have passed urine that was darker than the beer in my glass. Nose had a grassy, Saaz hops-like aroma. No adjuncts, anyway. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. Taste was mildly grassy with a biscuit malt backbone. Not bad, especially for the price point. Finish was semi-dry, rather unobtrusive and fairly pleasant in total.
