look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

On tap at a local restaurant in Calabria Italy. Pours a pale yellow with a medium lasting white head, some very light lacing. Aroma and Taste of grains, yeast, grassy notes, some light citrus. A light bodied crisp with mild carbonation on the palate. Finish is sweet light grainy notes,yeast, citrus and grassy notes. Not much else but overall a good light hot summer time brew that goes down easy

Serving type: on-tap

2.38/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.25

From 02/27/14 notes. Had this at Esca, an Italian Seafood restaurant in NYC as I had never heard of it. 330cl bottle into a pilsner glass.

a - Pours a clear bright yellow color with one inch of bright white head and high carbonation evident. Looks like most Euro lagers/AAL's.

s - Smells of corn, wheat, grains, and bready malts. Not skunked, but a bit sweet from the corn. Not great, though not terrible.

t - Taste follows the nose closely with some light skunkiness. Tastes of sweet corn, sour breads, grains, wheat, earthy notes, and dough. Not very good.

m - Light body and moderate carbonation. Lightly skunked taste but easy to drink I guess.

o - Overall not a very good beer at all. Your standard subpar Euro lager with some light skunkiness in the taste. They had the Forst dopplebock which I knew I should have gotten but I didn't want something as heavy. Wouldn't recommend.

Picked these up cheaply at the NQR store .
They were still in date , not skunked as far as my palate could determine.
The beer exemplified European lager mediocrity.Lots of oily malt to the taste and feel , and tending to the sweet end of things after the second stubby.
Another stop gap quaffer

2.17/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours pale amber with a large, fading head.
Uber-skunky aroma, with some grainy, bready malt underneath. Rather sweet smelling, lots of light malt.
Very similar flavours: bready malt and hay character pretty much sums it up.
Body is very watery, a problem exacerbated by the very low carbonation.

660ml bottle

A- Light golden with perfect see-trough. Medium white head, enough retention, almost no lacing. Visible carbonation

S- Corn, with some faint sirupy and wet grass notes

T- Crisp and sweet malts, somewhere in the middle between a classic pale lager and a weizen. Fresh herbal hops on the tongue with little bitterness, a slight fruity taste and aftertaste on the back of the palate. Nothing mindblowing but all in the right place

M- Very smooth and not astringent or metallic as a lot of those pale lagers. Light body, but good carbonation and viscosity make up for the otherwise watery mouthfeel

O- Not very interesting and not complex at all but very good drinkability. Refreshing

An aside note for american reviewers. Euro pale lager doesn't mean bad beer. Forst Brauerei is in the northernmost, german-speaking, region of Italy. They still brew according to the german purity law. There isn't actually much difference between euro pale lager and munich helles lager

A: bright straw yellow body, white head with decent carbonation.

S: strong corn with mild wet grass.

T: Very crisp and refreshing, get the malts and mildly bitter hop finish.

M: very light, but enough there to let it linger.

D: very drinkable - perfect for summer.

This one surprised me. Much better than i though it would be.

An Italian birra of the mass produced variety. Had at a conference reception and was mediocre at best. Carbonic acid bitterness and some grainy yeastiness, but mostly bland and meant to drink cold. Would avoid if ever given the opportunity to drink, though on a beach I'm sure it would totally be refreshing.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Thoroughly average Eurolager with a very grainy smell, taste, and feel, watery but also strangely coated on the way down. It's decently drinkable--I didn't think there were any *off* notes--but it's basically just a boring local South Tyrolean beer.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle purchased at a local grocery store on Lido Island just outside of Venice, Italy 6 17 09. Poured into a clean, clear glass.

A Weak looking lager with a 2 inch head after a vigorous pour.

S Hint of some sour grains, cereal but really pretty weak.

T Really close to water, a bad Euro lager. Minimal barley tastes.

M Thin.

D Great drinkability but really, I will not be drinking it again.
