66cl bottle purchased from the local supermarket in Sorrento. Drunk on the balcony of my hotel room, which should have given this beer an easier playing field. What a shame it doesn't even know the rules of the game.
Pours an extremely clear, extremely pale yellow colour, maybe a shade or two lighter than dehydrated piss. Head forms a wispy film of white that disappears after the carbonation gives up out of sheer apathy. No lace. The clarity is good—no doubt filtered beyond recognition, otherwise: woeful.
Nose is extremely weak, almost nothing making itself known at all. There's perhaps (if I'm looking extremely hard for it, a slight floral character to it, a soft banana blossom note, perhaps. And there is certainly a slight hint of watery grain. But mostly, it smells of nothing. Zip.
If anything, it tastes of even less than it smells. Really: nothing. Perhaps a slight taint of muggy grain leaves a ghostly impression, and there's a gritty earth character towards the back, otherwise it's like drinking flat mineral water.
It feels like it's flat even though it's not. It just makes the palate even more lethargic and pointless.
Overall, extremely poor. Ghastly, even. When a beer makes Peroni look masterful by comparison, there's something damagingly wrong. I probably made the pitiable mistake of expecting a beer with "luppoli" in the name to have some sort of hop character. I guess it's my own damn fault for expecting something so foolish.

Pale greenish yellow color, decent white foam.
In the smell corn and a metallic taste that cover a light grassy hop note.
In the mouth again corn, quite sweetish, with just a vague hop hint.
Being named aftert the hop ("three hops"), there is something wrong here.
