Clear golden colour with small head. Aroma is grainy and malty,with taste of caramel and hay,thin body and mild short finish, overall a thin and lighter type of Bock beer. Not much taste, so the alcohol dominates the flavor, making it very unbalanced. Not bad, not great. (271 characters)

A blond modestly malty brew, this is an average beer with just enough hops in the finish to keep it interesting. It seems to be a very popular beer in northern italy right now, and can be found nearly everywhere. The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin head and an admirable clarity. The aroma is clean and modestly malty. To be straightforward, the beer could be helped by a more intense and direct malt smell. Still, it's welcoming and satisfying. The taste is moderately sweet, with a little disturbing graininess and the touch of hops that were already mentioned. Moderate body and a bit more carbonation than is necessary. This is an okay beer, but it sure beats most of the ubiquitous euro-lagers that are so common here. (730 characters)

A - Gold body with light carbonation visible with small pure white head.
S - Exceedingly light malt aroma
T - No hops, not very sweet, pretty light malt. This is not a bock. This is a European Strong Lager. About the only past this could stand up to is alio olio.
M - This is no different that macro swill
D - A huge disappointment. I love Italy and I love bocks, I only wish I could love this beer. (403 characters)

Intense golden appearance, white foam, beautiful hat.
Essentially malty smell, a bit of corn. And a little broth.
No broth at the taste. Malty not too full. Drinkable, no more.
Average body, short aftertaste, malty, again.
Some hop in the finish.
Quite clean. (259 characters)

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Paid 1.29 euro for a bottle. Looks somewhat shiny and far too transparent to be a bock. Decent head at first which quickly dissipates. Smell is bad - like cooked rice. Taste is just as bad, with a nasty bitterness and poorly constructed malt. Mouthfeel is again bad, with noticeable alcohol and fizz. This is up there with the worst. (333 characters)
